I get it Holly doesn’t have hair as long as some would like but…….
She’s still a teen and it’s still growing.
Maybe when her story finally starts her hair will grow longer with magic like the Rapunzel from Tangled.
IDK just some thoughts
It’s long enough in the book for her to help her project partner in the Damsel-in-Distressing class (who happened to be Lizzie Hearts) escape from a four story tall glass tower. That is why the length on the doll is disappointing. Obviously I don’t expect it to actually look long enough to escape from a four story tower, but to the floor at least would have been nice.
Holly’s hair on her doll reaches to almost her ankles like how is that not long enough? If it were any longer her hair would be hard to maintain because of knots and it generally getting dirty.
The longest the official Disney Rapunzel dolls hair reaches is just a little bit past her feet and I’ve heard from people who own her how absolutely difficult it is for them to manage it.
As someone who owns a mattel rapunzel this is a true fact. Both of mine’s hair stays braided or rubber banded down because it’s a nightmare to maintain that length even with casual play. It’s not like her hair is super short, just an inch or two shorter than the floor, which is still quite a lot and the longest of any girl so far so that small amount of length difference really isn’t that big of a deal. And trust me - once you own her you will be sure to have enough trouble as is with what she’ll comes with to worry about those 1 - 2 inches she doesn’t have.
