I can't really add much to what has been said but that Rebecca the mini looks nothing in person like her stock photo from AG. The picture is not quite ugly, but the doll is gorgeous. It doesn't do her justice in the least.
The mini book contains the first half or so of each of the first three chapters of Meet Rebecca. The print is itsy-bitsy-teeny-tiny, even to my 'young eyes'. So if you don't want to strain your eyes, don't try to read it without a magnifying glass or reading glasses. That said, I love that the print is to scale!
Did real English soldiers really wear plastic dog tags?
According to Wikipedia:
First World War
The British Army and their Imperial forces in Canada, Australia and New Zealand issued identification tags from the beginning of the First World War. The tags were made of fibre, one in red and one in green and suspended around the neck by butcher's twine. The same pattern was worn into the Second World War and the Korean War by Commonwealth forces.
According to Physicsnetbase:
Fiber reinforced composite materials encompass a wide range of material classes from reinforced glasses, plastics, and rubbers.
So, Emily's grandfather very well could have been issued plastic dog tags during WWI. It seems like AG did more research than one would think.
