I was like a kid at Christmas waiting on UPS to arrive today. Felt sorry for the UPS driver because I live in a second floor apartment and he was huffing hard carrying that box up the steps. Now I know why! That box was almost too heavy for me to move. But I was prepared for that based on a lot of info from all of you in the forums.
I got the Christina doll with the #6 head. Originally ordered a flesh tone, but they said they were out for months and would I accept a tan version? I agreed. The doll looks almost like the online image except the breast are much larger. Not a problem for me:) The tan version really is not that much darker than the fleshtone. The only thing I have struggled with is the unruly wig. I will try combing it later to see if it helps. If not, I will buy another wig. There is an awesome wig store nearby with a huge selection.
I finally got her assembled and checked out the flexibility. Everything was perfect. I will post pictures in the next few days. Despite the recent price increase, I still feel I got the best doll for the money. Thanks LDD for making an old man be happy with his new companion.
