This box does not have a line name such as, "Spa Makeover," "Moonlight Dance," Schools Out," etc. because apparently it's the 1st release version of the Liv dolls that came out in 2009. Kmart only had this single one. In fact it was the only Liv they had. I remember seeing a Katie version of this box last December at a Walmart I rarely frequent for $18.99. I didn't get it because, hello, $18.99. I thought the line would be coming out at other stores as usual and I'd get them eventually on the cheap. However, until my recent toy run, I never saw another one, not even at any other Walmarts. After researching this Sophie I now realize why I never saw any more.
Kmart had this priced for $19.00 and on sale for $15.00. For all the stuff you get, I think it's worth it. I went to a second Kmart but no luck on finding ANY Liv items. I notice they have since changed Sophie's eyes in later versions. The striations in her eyes are lighter here which make her eye color look light as well.
My only disappointment is this blurb on the back of the box. Even though I don't feature them or use their heads, Sophie is my favorite Liv BECAUSE she wears glasses. I wear glasses. I have since I was a kid. So, I thought it was real cool that a Liv girl wore them and could make other little girls feel good about it. But no, she hates them. Heck she could still be hating them on all the other boxes released since and I just never noticed. Oh well, at least my Monster's love her glasses because I give all of Sophie's to them, ^_^.

I found this Spin Master image on the web of the original launch dolls. Man, Alexis looks amazing! Too bad I missed out on finding the rest of these. I'm sure I could find them for sale on line, but I'm very particular about the dolls I buy and I have to inspect them in person. It takes me like 10 minutes to choose between the copies of a doll in the store. I will look through every. single. one. It's really quite annoying, lol.
