The doll is cute and my daughter gave it a kiss of the lips when I took the doll out of the package (she's 16 mo), but there is a smell that won't go away. I put the doll in water and it still smelled. Smelled up the whole area the doll was in. It was like an Irish bar soap scent. I like things to be unscented. Fragrance gives me a headache, plus it didn't say anywhere in the online description, the manufacture's website, or the package that it had a smell. I had to return it.
