Splendid is probably the right word to describe this doll. When Franklin Mint announced a sale of their Scarlett, once again, one could not resist temptation that this doll was now made a little more affordable than its price at first release. Dave of http://www.missgenemarshall.blogspot.com made a very comprehensive review of this doll. So I would suggest that you refer to his blog on those details as they are very well written and documented. Therein, he took photographs of the intricate hairstyle of this doll. Again, it is hard to imagine how such hairstyle could be done on a thickly-stranded hair and a wig even. My only gripe: the Christmas detail on the hair is stuck to the head thus removing possibilities of its redressing. Then again, should it be redressed when it is perfect as it is. Much has been said about the print detail paint, described as "sticky". After a while though it doesn't stick much -- or perhaps it is the temperature here in my country.
