Well... I've been trying to catch up on reviews. I got my Ivy the day she came out, over a year ago, and the photos are still sitting in a folder waiting. Oops. Well, here goes!
Plastic-wrapped legs, very charming.
Here's her earring. Shiny. Goldish.
Standard body, no apparent mutations.
Pigtails from the back. Short hairs, phew.
Hair comparison with Kit.
I absolutely love Ivy (she's called Yeva 'round these parts). All the positive stuff about her has been said already, so I will reiterate what I feel are her shortcomings.
Her hair is a really bizarre length. You can put it in pigtails and that's about it. It's not long enough for a ponytail. If you try to do half-pigtails, they stick out like deformed antennae. Not so cute.
Others have spoken to the quality of her hair. Yeva's hair has been played with, a lot. It seems fine, no undue shedding or such. The one weird thing is that it takes much, much longer to dry than any of my other dolls. I'll put it in pigtails and it will stay very damp for days and days, despite the small amount of actual hair and the fact that it's not even braided but directly exposed to air. Perhaps Ivy's head could be useful to NASA in some way.
I don't know if this is just my doll, but I also noticed this on #30. The face mold has the tendency to look as if it is tilting downward. It gives Yeva the appearance of constantly staring at the ground. She's going to miss all the good stuff!
So, overall, I'd give her an A-. She look absolutely darling, but her hair is not so conducive to playing. Her bangs, however, rock. They aren't freakily thick like the original AGTs. Very nicely layered, very cute.
