I adore Tyler, my number 12 who I got in the spring of 2006. I've never had any problems with her and I just love her sweet face. Although there are a few other dolls with her hair/eye combination (Kailey, Julie) she still stands out to me because of her bangs. Overall: A- (just because of the originality)
Here are some pictures of my Tyler:
You can find some more in other albums on my Picasa.

I absolutely adore my Kit. I got her Christmas 2001 and she was my first doll. I was 6 Anyway, she has stayed in great condition over the years, and was only sent to the doll hospital once to get her leg reattached. In my opinion, she looks gorgeous in anything, historical or modern. I mostly keep her modern though. Kit is a great doll, and you will just fall in love with her adorable face. She is just so sweet and draws you in. I strongly recommend her to everyone!

I absolutely ADORE this doll! She was the second doll that I got (after Kit) and I received her April 2005. After a few years, I lost interest in my dolls, and they were packed away in a box (I will admit, they weren't well taken care of...it makes me shudder to think about). After being in the box for a few years and going through many moves, my #13 Dakota was still in great shape! Her hair was very messy so I straightened it, and now it looks perfect! Her hair doesn't frizz at all in my experience, and the bangs stayed great as well.
The only problem I've had with her is that she has sort of a "lazy eye" in that her right eye tends to shift a bit to the side when I move her around a lot. But it can eerily be moved back into place. However, this is a defect on my Dakota, not on the doll's design. Also, this is not a result of having her in the box for so long, she had the lazy eye since the day I purchased her from the AG store in New York.
I have Skylar, who has since been renamed Stevie-Tate, and honestly she is one of my favorite dolls that I own! I have had her for almost 8 years. To be honest, after about a year or two of playing with her, she kind of got pushed aside. I received my last AG doll in 2006 and after about a year I lost interest in the dolls altogether (which makes me so sad to think about) so they got put in a box in my closet. Occasionally I would take them out and give them makeovers but I never really became interested again until about a year ago. That was when I took Stevie (Skylar) out of the box in my closet and gave her a complete makeover. I straightened her hair and trimmed it, redid her face paint, etc. She held up very well through all of these years of moving at least 5 times, being transferred into different boxes, etc. Although her limbs are very loose now, she still holds poses well and does not look at all abused (not that I purposely abused her!). The only problem is that I am somehow missing her long sleeved shirt that goes under her vest, as well as her little purse.
All in all, I think Skylar is a great doll, and I would give her an A. I will post pictures of my Stevie as soon as I can so you can see what she looks like with straightened hair
