This is a beautifully made doll and the clothes are also well made. The dress is unlike the catalog picture slightly in style and the fabric is a bright green instead of a cute print as illustrated. I would like to have patterns to make more clothes.I hope my granddaughter likes it.

Beautiful doll but it is much smaller than appears in the catalog! The hair is not as pictured and the dress I received is not floral. I think the baby doll (18 inch) is a better bargain for your dollar and I will probably exchange mine. Too bad!

I have been buying one of these dolls for my daughter each Christmas for the last five years. She cherishes these dolls. My dear daughter is now 11 and she still plays quietly in her room with these dolls while all the plastic ones sit in a bin in her closet. Over the last five years she has spent countless hours playing with these beautiful, well-made, all natural dolls. She keeps them on display in her room and takes them down when she wants to play. I must say I take them down myself sometimes just to hold them.

These dolls have been a family favorite for years. In a home with three daughters, these dolls see tons of tea party action and night time snuggling. My girls prefer them to any of the plastic dolls they have, and only lament that they cannot enjoy bathtime with their friends! If you are looking for a safe,heirloom quality, natural toy that will be beloved for years and years, this Kathe Kruse doll is worth every penny of the extra cost.

The first Waldorf doll I had was made from a kit, before I was born. This was 1981. I still have that doll, Sarah. I even have the original flannel dress. While I agree somewhat about fabric being difficult to clean, I never loved my Sarah any less for being a tad dirty. I also own three Waldorf dolls that I have been given or purchased over the years, two of which I am passing on to our new baby. There could be no better doll for a child. Most of my early memories include Sarah by my side.
