I love this dress! It is adorable and looks good on practically all my dolls. I remember as a 10-year-old I was very frustrated because I couldn't do her hair the way the instructions do it, but the chopsticks are cute! Grade: B+
Bracelet: I don't even know where it is! Tiara: A++++! I love the tiara and am constantly using it for dressing them up or down! Shoes: B. I don't use them. Skirt: A+! It looks really good on Kaya in her non-historical days. Shirt: B. It's a shirt, that's for sure.
I am not sure if this is somewhere else or not. You can choose from two styles of t-shirt, long-sleeved or short-, and then out of three colors, periwinkle, pink and white. Out of a dozen or so designs, you can choose one that they then iron on the t-shirt. At $10 ($11.03 including tax in Chicago) it's debatable if it is worth it. The t-shirt is too loose (it can also fit Bitty Baby) but it is fun to customize and doesn't look that bad on the doll.
My doll is called Katia... I cut her hair into a bob, and I have been perfectly happy with her until now. She is a really pretty doll; I think she would make a good Laura Ingalls, if that is your thing.
Lissie is stunning with her green eyes and pretty hair - this gown does her more justice than the purple traveling gown. Her hair is very silky and easy to take care of. Unlike other dolls (cough, cough, Kaya).
Kaya's hair is unruly!!!!!!! My suggestion is to NOT EVER TAKE HER HAIR OUT OF ITS BRAIDS. If you are moving her, DO NOT PUT HER IN A BOX WITH OTHER THINGS. Her hair will get messed up! Otherwise, she is a lovely doll. I absolutely adore her face, so unique! She really does need more clothing and accessories. If you are just starting and wishing to have an entire collection, Kaya is the way to go, because she does not have a lot.
Josefina is a really pretty doll. Although I might be biased because she was my first... However, her hair, as previously mentioned, is very thick and coarse. It can be a pain to brush through. It is a lot like Kaya's hair. It's very long, reminds me of Lady Godiva, and really nice when she has it all brushed out. The newer Josefina dolls do not seem as pretty as the elder... I got mine in 2001.
