Guide Review - Our Generation's Katelyn Figure Skating Doll From Target

Target stores has made an alternative to the American Girl Mia figure skating doll. The doll's name is Katelyn. Some people say the only difference between the two dolls is $50 (Target's figure skating doll is cheaper).

Katelyn comes ready to go with two skating outfits and a bunch of accessories. A book, that tells Katelyn's ice skating story, is also included.

Most children and their parents are delighted with Katelyn, but complain about her hair. The complaint is that her hair is impossible to comb and tangles easily.

Despite the problem with Katelyn's hair, the doll is a durable. Children as young as four or five have played with her, and parents have reported that the doll stays in good condition after hours and hours of play.

The Katelyn doll may also inspire a child to try figure skating since the book included with the doll tells Katelyn's ice skating story. Also, the accessories that are included help a child act out the figure skating story from the book.

This inexpensive copy of the American Girl Mia St. Clair figure skating doll may be a good alternative. Families can give their child the delight of owning a figure skating doll without paying a high price.
