Imaginative Maryellen Larkin™ has hazel eyes that open and close, and her long strawberry-blond hair is worn in a high ponytail with sideswept bangs. She comes in an authentic 1950s outfit:
A striped dress with a sweetheart neckline, tailored bows, and a full skirt
An aqua lacy-knit shrug monogrammed with her initial
Black Mary Jane shoes
An aqua ribbon bow on a ponytail holder for her hair
The 18" Maryellen doll has a huggable cloth body, and her movable head and limbs are made of smooth vinyl. She comes with The One and Only: A Maryellen Classic 1 book.
I don't think I've ever reviewed a doll before, so let me know if I leave anything out.

Tag in the shrug. If you don't tuck it in just right, it hangs out.

Without the shrug.

And the back.
The one thing I really want to point out is her hairline. Maryellen really does have a "good side".

Maryellen's not so "good side" (right)
It's just the way her hairline, part and bangs come together in the same spot. It leaves this triangle void that at the wrong angle looks like a bald spot. Look at the pictures side by side.

See what I mean? It makes it harder to photograph her right side.

I agree with molly&lydia about her wig. I tried to put Maryellen's hair in pigtails, but it came out all wonky. With her part being so far to the side it really throws everything off.
Also, I curled Maryellen's hair and I wanted to add some pictures of that.
