I got this doll yesterday for my bday and I love her! I'm usually not too impressed with the minis - something always looks "off," but this doll is just adorable. Her outfit is very accurate except for the comb and the construction of the underwear, but TBH neither of those things bother me. The Nina doll's outfit is also made this way.
Something interesting is that this doll actually looks quite different from the previous mini which we bought in 2003. Her skin and eyes are darker, her eyebrows are drawn differently, and she looks noticeably taller (which also tends to alter her 1:3 doll-for-a-doll scale). Upon further examination I also found that they have different head stamps - 2003 is "Pleasant Company" and the 25th mini is "American Girl LLC". The earrings are also a bit different.
My only problems with this doll is the fact that we kind of already had a doll's doll dressed like Josefina (Nina, though this mini's dres is more accurate), so this seems a bit repetitive, and also the mini book that was included should have had the cover of the actual full-sized version. I'll give this set an A-.
