Toys 4 u dolls are garbage.
The best alternative is as ra_mom mentioned, Target's 18" dolls.

In what way? They break easily? What about the beverly hills dolls from toys2discover?

I recently found my old American girl doll from when I was a kid and was looking forward to giving it to my daughter - it did not hold up well. The cheap Mattel dolls are in way better condition. Don't spend money on the real ones.

Another vote for Target brand.

Can I expect the hair on these dolls to get all knotty and rough or do they stay nice and stylable?

They do eventually knot if you're not careful but they stay much nicer than the NY Girls Collection.

If you do prefer American Girl, sometimes you can find a used one for cheap.

My daughter has two of the target ones.

They come with a name, book, change of clothes, and accessories, all with a theme. So they are a full character sort of like the american girl dolls are.

Their hair does not hold up amazing, but it's ok.
