Kailey has briefly joined our household before moving on to her new owner for Christmas. I'm glad that I had the chance to see her in person, even though I've never really wanted her. I'm not fond of the way the darker brown eyes and lighter blonde hair look together on the doll. That is just me. I don't find her appealing. The doll herself is just fine.
I wanted to review, though, because I noticed something a little strange. Kailey's vinyl is different than any of the other dolls that I've seen. She has fair skin, but it seems very "warm". It's not golden-ish like McKenna's light skin tone. It's not peachy-creamy like the older PM "light skinned" dolls, nor is it gray or green like some runs of vinyl were. This has an almost translucent orange or yellow tinge to it. I don't really know how to describe it. She's not orange in the slightest (she doesn't look like an oompa-loompa or anything), but there's this glowy warm translucence to her vinyl limbs. She doesn't seem flawed. Her vinyl is just slightly different from what I'm used to seeing. Anyway, I just figured I would mention it. I will post a picture later, although she looks pretty normal in the pictures I've taken.

Kailey was my first doll I got her for Christmas in 2003 she is my favorite doll when I went to the American Girl place in AZ the workers saw her and asked what doll she was and they were surprised that it was Kailey and she and like all of my dolls are in great condition so when I told them Kailey was my first doll they were happy cause they never seen a Kailey before. When I got Kailey for Christmas I also got a wheelchair for her cause like me I use a wheelchair sometimes cause I get tired when I walk. Also glasses cause I wear them I have sense I was 2 or 3 years old so I wanted her to be just like me. I play with her and all of my dolls still when I play on my iPad I have one or 2 of them sit with me and when I get my blood at the hospital I take her or a different doll with me. So Kailey has a special place in my heart. She will always be my favorite doll of the year.
