Notes

(Special thanks to Taffy Cheerful for these pictures.)

I had one of these dolls in my hands at Tuesday Morning and I looked at her face for a while and then put her down. I couldn't warm up to that pout enough to shell out even the measly $19.99 they wanted for her. If you like baby faces you may find her very cute though.

Later I regretted not getting her to be a "body donor" for a kit doll I have that needs a better body than the one that came with the kit. Recently, though, Taffy Cheerful sent me these pictures of Annette and I decided I made the correct decision. Her limbs, especially her arms, are oddly shaped.

The Success Girls all come with a prize ribbon declaring them the winner of some award (Annette's is for School Spirit). According to their hang tag, this is "to promote positive role models for young girls".

The quality of the dolls' vinyl, hair and clothing is good but not great. If she appeals to you, she might be worth a bargain price.
