One hand is curled and she is able to suck her thumb, while the other is artfully crafted to look as if it is at rest. For any little girl (or boy) that is begging you for a baby doll, this is the way to go. It is made of a far superior quality then anything I have yet to see in this area of the market and will take a licking and keep on ticking. The clothes are machine washable and you are able to buy more clothing and accessories for the line (which are just as cute as real baby clothes, I CANNOT STAND IT) so your child has a lot of options for them in the wardrobe department. Adults that are buying this for someone they love also have a lot of options when picking out their loved one's cuddle baby. There are all sorts of different hair, eye, and skin tone combinations that you will absolutely find a perfect fit for your child's imaginary family!
For whatever reason you choose to buy this doll- you're making the right choice. Madame Alexander makes the highest quality dolls that will no doubt become treasured family heirlooms (like it is in our family). This baby doll will stand the test of time and make its way into your child's heart as well as imagination.
* I am a Madame Alexander Mom Panel member and received this doll to review. But COME ON- who wouldn't love this- all opinions are my own!
