I have re-fallen in love with my Medium skin Bitty. She was purchased as a gift for me from my mother during the first year she was available. I was in middle school, so not playing much with dolls anymore, but I was totally smitten for the older brother of my Hispanic best friend, and begged for the doll fiercely. She has absolutely beautiful skin that I cannot even begin to think of an appropriate color reference for, it's just so unique. I think she is one of the most beautiful of all of the dolls. I put her away in my mother's closet only less than a year after getting her and haven't thought much about it until my four year old daughter recieved an American Girl catalog in the mail. I decided to pull her out (still have not shown daughter, don't want her playing with it until I can teach her how to handle gently) and see what condition she was in. Nearly perfect! My mom had been so smart as to put the Special Occaision bonnet on her head and put her in a plastic zip up bag to protect her. She has only two or three small rub marks (hardly noticible!) and NO scuffs at all! I love this doll!
