Default My Life As dolls-??

I am considering purchasing a Walmart 'My Life As' 18" doll for my DGD. I am wondering what the quality is? I have purchased 18" dolls from Nancy's Notions and been pleased with the quality. I appreciate your input.

Afraid, I don't know. My daughters were into the American Girl dolls. Wow, that was a long time ago.

And the thing about Walmart is they are very good about letting you return things, so I wouldn't be too worried about it.

I checked Amazon and the reviews of them there all seem to be very positive. (But the dolls cost a lot more on Amazon than they do at Walmart!)

Wow, you got them for a steal. Our Joann's doesn't carry them. I have looked at so many dolls today, I can't remember which site I saw ethnic dolls on. Sorry.

PS: I bought one from Nancy's Notions for my DGD and then purchased one for myself so I could try clothes on that I make before sending them to my DGD. When she visited me this summer she had forgotten to bring her doll. So she was delighted to play with mine. I want to add another 18" doll for her for Christmas since I got a chance to see how much she loves mine.

I also bought a stand for Grandma's doll!

I just happened to look at the Springfield dolls (at NN) on Amazon and a few of them are about a dollar less. I have free 2 day prime shipping so that makes them even a better deal for me. Yup! I bought one for my DGD.

Just googled them at Walmart and they have at least 3 African American dolls. All are very cute!
