Oh no!  I unfortunately don't have Kaya's dress so I have no idea how to clean it.  It looks like it might be suede?  Hopefully someone will know!  Good luck!

It's a lot like leather, but it's fake leather.

Looks like you can try gentle baking soda, or dish soap on a damp rag...  GOOD LUCK!

Thanks! I'll try that once it dries. I just tried baby wipes. It helped but didn't completely remove it.

I tried the baking soda. It didn't really do anything. I'll try the dish soap tomorrow.

The dish soap worked! It's not completely gone, but it's 99% gone. Mom and I are both happy with the results. Thank you to all who replied with suggestions.

Too bad they don't sell just the outfits and accessories for Kit, being that I already have a Kit doll.

I always wanted one as a kid but they were too expensive. Last year I found Samantha and Kirsten dolls (original makers) at Savers. I snatched them up and had a blast neatening them up and kept them for a while to fulfill my dream.

I sold Samantha to a guy on ebay who actually picked her up from me to give to his daughter in time for her birthday. How sweet! Right before he drove off he told me that his daughter wanted to customize it to make it a boy - nooooooo!! I was mortified that my doll was to be butchered by a 10 year old. As long as she/he is loved though I guess :x

Kirsten is still for sale. I hope she has a better fate!

Congrats! My mom has been collecting the minis since I grew out of my dolls. Plus we have 10 historicals we don't need anymore! I've since claimed a display shelf in the living room to display my Addy & Kit I'm hoping that everyone just likes it enough to make it a permanent display and rotate out outfits for the seasons/holidays.

I walked into Toys R Us today intending to buy something small from AG, like an outfit or accessory set, sort of like a nice way to say goodbye before the mayhem hits our store.

That's not what I walked out with.

Unfortunately the sun was already set by the time we got home so every photo is awful but I'm so thrilled to finally have Willa! It was awesome to get to pick her out in person without an insanely long trip to another state. Getting my second ever non-mini AG doll at Toys R Us was really cool and I'm glad I'll have that memory :D

Wow!  I see her a lot at Barnes & Nobles.  I never buy one because I think I'd want them all.  She is sooo cute! Congrats Taxel.

Thanks! I'm so happy with her :D But you're right, they're like Pringles! I've wanted Emerson since release as well but now I think I need Kendall too... and all the clothes... and most of the accessories... I may be just a little bit obsessed.

My most recent AG is a Truly Me that I treated myself to for a late birthday/early Christmas gift last year. I'm disappointed that she came with 'perma-panties', but she's still really cute and my first contemporary doll. (Pants! She has pants on!)

She might even be my favorite. I created a short little backstory for her and everything. But shhh! Don't tell my other dolls!  :good:

Luciana is very tempting... as well as Nanea. I guess I'm just lucky that I have no more room for 18inch dolls at the moment.  :lol:

You can send her into the Doll Hospital for the perma-panty fix...
