Back when I was first into AG (mid-late 1990s), Samantha was my third favorite historical. I love her books and collection. I got my own Samantha Noelle Parkington for Christmas in 2008 (my dad ordered her in September, soon after the first buzz of the archival). She is a beautiful doll! My mom has a PM Samantha, that I got from ebay, cleaned up and gave her, and although both Sams look quite different, they're both wonderful dolls. I do like the eye-color on the PM Sams more though.
I did have a little bit of bonding issues when I first got my Sam, probably mostly because I play with my mom's quite a bit. After a couple months I changed Sam's hair to be a side-ways half pony, like on the old cover and first chapter of Meet Samantha and she's adorable with that style. I also had put mine into her nightgown before my mom put her Sam into her nightgown, and that helped, too.
