I am in love with my new McKenna! This is my first doll with her mold so I’m excited to have a different face in my collection. My McKenna is a little hippy compared to my PM dolls but has tight limbs.
Her hair is amazing! Her hair is thick and has that beautiful caramel shade. I’m happy that my McKenna has the short hairs in the back. My only complaint is that she had a lot of fly-away hairs when I first took her out of her box and brushed her hair. She shed more than the expected few hairs but she should hopefully stop shedding by now.
I like McKenna’s meet outfit. I love the top but am not crazy about the leggings. I would prefer something different for pants but I can understand having something shorter for a gymnast. The shoes are all right. I’m not horribly offended by McKenna’s mini ponytail but that’s probably because I’ve worn my hair like that when I was her age.
I like the doll by herself but what makes her extra special and exciting to me other than her hair is that she is a gymnast. I took some gymnastic classes when I was really young and have been interested in gymnastics for many years. I also think this adds a unique aspect to future play.
I am extremely happy that I purchased McKenna. She is perfect for me and I am looking forward to many hours of play with her! A+

I am in love with my new Kit! My new Kit was purchased sometime in the first couple of months after her release. This is my first doll with freckles so I’m excited to have this difference. My only complaint is that the freckles are light and hard to make out from a distance and in some pictures. I love her shorter hair. I think it is an attractive feature for young girls who want easier hair to style or who wear their hair short as well. My Kit also has tight limbs and a firm body.
I like Kit’s meet outfit. I think it looks accurate for a 1930’s look. I appreciate that the buttons on her sweater are actual buttons. The barrette is very flimsy. For what one pays for a doll I expect something of better quality.
Overall I think Kit is simply adorable. She is worth every penny I paid. I am extremely happy to have her as part of my collection and cannot wait to spend more time with Kit! A+

Dress – I like that this dress comes with a long-sleeve shirt. As mentioned previously I think the dress is too short for the target audience. I’m not impressed with the tie as the length of the tie does not give you many options on what to do with the tie.
Boots – I really like these boots. They look great and were easy to get on.
Beret – The beret is nice. As noted before you can’t make out the butterfly well but I think the beret could have been done without the butterfly.
Overall – I love how this outfit looks on McKenna despite the short length of the dress. A+
