Looks great but if you buy this for your little girl the LOLz are on you!

Rubbish manufacturing at it's best. This was not the seller's fault at all. I want to make that clear right away.
First of all, let me start with the packaging. As a product that advertising and makes it's money on the "unboxing" process, this packaging had no clear indication of how it should be opened. Especially important in this case since they advertise that the boxing can be used as a dressing room afterwards. Luckily, I was extremely careful in opening the box, but this definitely took away from what should have been my daughter's experience of "unboxing". You can find a small booklet with instructions on how to assemble the what I can only guess is a doll stand for displaying the doll. I don't know because the instruction booklet includes no label as to what it is for, only a diagram. If it is a doll stand I could not figure out how I should use it to display the doll as there is no method of resting or securing the stand to the doll.
Now lets move on to some of the most terrible design and engineering I have seen in my life.
PLEASE READ THIS IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO DESTROY YOUR DOLL OR YOUR DOLL'S CLOTHING!!!!
The doll has soft hands with small fingers and dragon-lady fingernails. this combined with a narrow sleeve and weak stitching on the pink fluffy jacket is a recipe for disaster. In the process of trying to figure out how to get this jacket on my daughter's doll for her, the sleeve separated from the body of the jacket. Yeah, great fun for my daughter, as you can only imagine(insert your favorite expletive here)!
Here is the solution for getting the jacket on Lady Diva if you really can't send the thing back, which because of the product's excellent presentation appeals so much to your daughter that she would never let it go.
Step 1: Gently use a pencil or other slim tool to open the sleeve and work the opening so that you can actually slide the doll into it. Hint: it was tight even for a small pen shaft.
Step 2: Use some tape (I used some of the leftover tape from the near "surgical" precision unboxing I had to do) and tape those clawed fingers together to form a single tip that can enter and hopefully slide through the sleeve.
Step 3: Spend 30 minutes to an hour gently working the hand and arm through the sleeve.
Finished? No, the fun doesn't stop there folks!
Step 4: Tape up the second hand bend the second arm awkwardly and repeat the process for the second sleeve.
Step 5: Get psychological counselling for the PTSD this process has caused.
Am I done? No, not yet. We still have the mini-skirt to contend with. I hope you have strong hands, because you are gonna need them to stretch this skirt around Lady Diva's ample figure and attach the Velcro. Seriously, I'd have an easier time lubing up my body with a tub of Crisco shortening and putting on my small Asian wife's spandex body shaping clothing.
So again a reminder, the problem is with the manufacturer creating beautiful, but inappropriately engineered toys.
If your daughter really has to have LOL stick to the small dolls, these larger versions are absolutely not worth the bad experience you will have.
