I just ordered a Journey Girl doll for my dd. From what I've read it's 18 inches, looks similar dimensions to American Girl. I'd LOVE any of you to write if you have a doll like this, how does the fit compare with other 18" dolls, etc. My little girl still loves baby dolls at 6, but soon will enjoy her first "bigger girl" doll with hair she can style. I grew up with Mme Alexander - prettier faces than AG I think and the upper chest is modeled, so necklines won't show the change to cloth. However, I liked the Journey girls' non-closing eyes and got the new Kelsey model, because blue eyes and dark red hair. I guess I'm still such a girl!
