The skin tone on this Bitty varies a great deal. DD's medium skin Bitty came home at the end of 2005 and has beautiful brown skin. I've seen medium skin Bittys I would have sworn were the light skin, brunette Bitty. DD's Bitty is several shades darker than a friend's. DD's Bitty is darker than my #15 and Josefina.
I love this Bitty. She looks tons better in some of the lighter colored Bitty outfits than the caucasian Bittys. For instance, the Little Flowers Layette set looks fabulous on this Bitty, but my lighter skinned BT looked completely washed out and, well, just plain bad in it.
Scuffs do show on her head more than on the blond bitty, but it doesn't seem any worse than our Asian Bitty. She has a sweet face with her dark eyes, lip color and hair. She stands out in the world of baby dolls. While she is generally thought of as Hispanic, she can easily represent a variety of ethnicities-- Hispanic, Pacific Islander, Indian.... I love the diversity in the Bitty line.
I give this doll an A+. There just aren't enough cute, ethnically diverse baby dolls in the world and this one is a real sweetie.
