I bought the set, then finally returned it. It is well made, sturdy, heavy, and very well packaged. I just don't like the color. It is too bright. I could have gone with a more subdued turquoise, but I agree with Rexphiles - at least it isn't pink! I decided to stay with Kit's set which I already have.
Yesterday I was in the Seattle store studying Marie Grace's face. She has the eyes of the Josefina mold in that they are rather deep set in her face. She also has the same shaped lips, they are just smaller, or rather her mouth is narrower. The fuller lower jaw of the Josefina mold has been reduced, accenting her high cheek bones and her chin. The nose is completely different than any other doll, and is perfectly nice. In all I think she looks older than the other dolls, mainly because she does not have the "baby fat" in her face. I haven't decided if I like her or not. She seems more "doll like" to me, her face seems more like a doll face and more similar to lower cost dolls. She is a sweet looking doll, though, and I don't have anything against her.
There is a little wooden peg that fits into a hole on the side that keeps the board stable so it will not flip. The peg is small and unattached so it would be easy to lose. It should not be difficult to find a substitute, though.
