Happily, she came out of the box in pristine condition. I could not find any flaw whatsoever, for which I breathed a huge sigh of relief, given the horror stories I've read recently about others who whose dolls were not nearly as fortunate in their crossings of the Pacific. She was well-packed, and covered by the expected cozy, plush towel. The package also contained a "Gift" bag, which included the expected items, such as an irrigator, white gloves, comb, and a set of bolts and hook for hanging. The free clothing was a cute, pink, shorty nightie. The wig was really of much better quality than I had expected, so I was quite happy with the entire package. The only negative was a strong smell of TPE. One bathing did not do much to dispel it, so it looks like it will take a few more tries to finish the job.
Since my first doll, Nanako, was an inexpensive Amazon UUDoll, I was anxious to see the differences between it and a more expensive model. I should point out that Nanako was (IMHO) really very well crafted visually. There were some small details in her that even my new WM doll does not possess. That said, her skeletal structure was an absolute mess. It was dreadfully stiff, and some of the joints have given me fits - especially the left hip, which is just about useless after only 5 months. Thus, I am pleased to see the WM skeleton is not only much more fluid in its movements, but is also capable of an entire new set of range of motion. Speaking of which, I do wish it would have come with a range of motion chart, manual, or some similar printed material. It would have taken much of the guesswork out of the entire orientation process.
I do want to thank Roberto at Silver Doll for his help in setting up this sale. His experience was a big help in guiding me through the entire process. Highly recommended!
