Several times, I have discussed with people that there were other considerations of what doll to buy before finally choosing Leila. As stated on the homepage, I really did look at and consider at least 100 dolls.
While looking through some old folders, I came across a folder that contained all of my top picks among all the dolls I saw. But also as I have stated, I always came back to my Leila.
The following are pictures of dolls that were at the top of my consideration list. You will sometimes see pictures of the same doll, but in a different outfit or pose. That simply meant that I really, really considered that particular doll.
But it was Leila in the beginning, Leila throughout, and Leila in the end.
And my lovely Leila today…
