My mini Caroline came today, and I am just so thrilled. The pictures of her did not do her justice at all. Those light colored eyes are difficult to photograph. She is truly a very pretty doll. To give her those aquamarine eyes, they are painted a sea green on the bottom half and a blue on the upper part with white streaks to give the irises a translucent look. She has light feathered eyebrows just like the 183 inch Caroline. Her hair is same moonlight yellow blonde as well. I think she can use a touch more color on the lower lip and she'd be perfect. .
The dress is a sweet miniature of the big doll's outfit. Pantalets, socks and shoes come with her. The sash is a tiny bit of embroidered ribbon. I am delighted with the detail right down to the trim on the skirt and sleeves and the growth pleats.
She gets a 10 score from me. One of my favorite minis. I've not been thrilled with some of the new ones, particularly MG and Cécile. This one is worht getting. She also make a wonderful period doll for any number of the 18 inch dolls. I will be making a nice bonnet for her and a cape for the cold weater. I wish AG made like clothes for the minis, because I 'd love a full wardrobe for this one.

My mini Caroline came today. I bought her on Amazon, so I am pleased, but had I paid the AG price, I would be disappointed.
Caroline's hair is not curled, but instead slightly wavy. Furthermore, my particular Caroline has longer hair on one side that the other. Otherwise, she is fine, though I think the ruffle at her neckline should be smaller.

I just purchased Mini Caroline and I am so disappointed. The ruffle at her neckline is really out of scale and the dress fit is just OK. My biggest complaint is her hair- the full size Caroline has all one length hair, curled in ringlets. Mini Caroline's hair is only wavy and worst of all IT'S LAYERED. So it cannot even be fixed it by re-setting it. Grade: C
