No pictures of my mini Cécile because I don't have access to my camera for the next week or so, but I'll post pictures later. I got mini Cece the day the dolls debuted and I'm very happy with her. Like Lunasea's, my doll's hair is pretty crazy and one of the little bows was tied on upside down. Note to others: don't try to untie the bow because it's partly sewn in place. I will probably clip mine off and then just tie on new little ribbons. Hair aside, mini Cécile is very pretty and sweet. She's actually the only mini doll I own (other than the old ones with glass eyes) because I don't like any of the others enough to buy them. Her little outfit is really well made and is just like big Cécile's. I'm impressed with the feel of the blue fabric her dress is made of. Also I enjoyed reading the first couple chapters in her mini book!
I give mini Cécile an A- because of the hair issues. She's great other than that though.
My dolls: Kirsten, Addy, Felicity, Nellie, Molly, Samantha, Rose Adele, Tess, Julianna, Callie, Miri, Ever, and Pru.

The first thing that I noticed about mini Cécile was how soft her hair is. I'm afraid that may make it a little harder to manage in the long run. The curls are rather boisterous, but can be positioned for display with judicious placement of a straight pin. Of course that won't work for play. The details on her dress are really well done and I love the deep teal color. The skirt could have been a little fuller. I think she will look good with her hair pulled back, too, if the curls get too wild.
I would say A for display, but maybe B for a play doll.
Here is my Mini Cécile with the hat I made for her.
I found Mini Cécile at Barnes and Noble, and since a friend gave me Mini Marie-Grace for Christmas, I decided, why not pick Cécile up, too? Cécile is so sweet. I love how wonderfully soft her hair is. I wish my curls were that soft! Her curls are a little unruly, but so's mine, so I can't complain there. Her dress is a little stiff, and I wished it billowed out as nicely as Mini Marie-Grace's, but other than that, I think she's a real little beauty.
