|Hearts for Hearts Surjan|
The line consists a series of international-themed playline dolls that are slightly shorter than AG-sized. They represent a solid selection of nations (this doll's story ties her to Nepal), and include a short story/pamphlet that discusses their lives (and that has an "out of poverty" element - part of the doll's proceeds go to a charity that is apparently involved in the issues described).
There are a multitude of reviews for this line out there, so I won't go into much detail, but the doll has a fully vinyl body with 5 points of articulation, and inset acrylic eyes. This particular doll comes in a patterned dress, pink sandals and a few pieces of jewellery (earings, nosering, bangle, and a necklace). The plastic jewellery is decent quality for dolls at this price point, and the outfit, while simple, is better quality than I'd expected. Her face is painted in a style that gives her a neutral-on-the-side-of-happy expression, which I found more appealing that I'd expected based on promotional photos.

Overall, I'm quite impressed with this doll she's appealing, her accessories fit her theme, and for a doll at this price point ($25USD/$35CDN), the line certainly exceeded my expectations.
ETA: I can't believe I almost forgot: For the Americans out there, Happy Thanksgiving!
