After MUCH research, this doll seemed perfect. She is 17" and the perfect realistic size for my 3 year old daughter. Her eyes close when she lies down (a must for my daughter). The interactive cries, sucking noises, and giggles are precious. This doll has a very pretty face. I bought this as a Christmas present and I can't wait to give it! Also, you can turn off the interactive sounds if you want. She is sure to be a hit! Imagine Toys offered her at a good price. I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase!
