AGT #18 (Newer Retired Version, With Bangs)
A: There is something about AGT #18 that makes me smile. She is one of the sweetest looking dolls in the collection.
For those of you unfamiliar with the changes in AGT#18, she was given bangs in 1999.
AGT#18 is very unique looking. While she shares a face mold with AGT#1, AGT#18 (old), AGT#26 and Addy, her wig is very different from the other dolls. The most obvious difference is that she has bangs. Her bangs are not thick like the older AGT bangs; rather they are comparable to Nellie’s (shorter and wispier) and have just a little bit of a curl. Her wig is relatively flat and smooth on top (unlike some the bang-less dolls with textured hair). Also unlike Addy, AGT#18’s wig is shorter, softer, a tiny bit lighter, less textured and doesn’t shed as much. Her hair is a lot of fun to play with.

Her eyes are a beautiful shade of light brown and seem to have a natural sparkle them makes them appear lifelike.

I only have two relatively minor complaints about this doll. First, her skin is grayer than either of my Addys. She looks sickly sitting next to them. However, it is not really noticeable when she is next to other dolls. I don’t know if this problem applies to all AGT#18 dolls. Second, she does not photograph well, especially indoors. She would not make a very good clothing model.
I love AGT#18 and would without a doubt place her in my top 8 favorite AGT dolls on any given day (maybe even in my top 5).
*She also has great possibilities for customization*
