When Marie Grace first came out I was not interested at all. But then I saw the 25% off sale (yes I am a sucker for sales), so I took a second look at her. I am so glad I did. She is the doll I have been waiting for AG to create since I got back into collecting. She has almost the same color as my WB Kirsten's eyes which I love. Brown hair that is so nice with lots of length for different styles. A bonus is her unique face mold which really makes her stand out in a good way. I got Marie Grace to be a modern girl and have re-named her Emma. I am not fond of the side curls, so I just have tucked them behind the braids which I think looks nice. I got to hand pick Emma. When looking at the dolls, my Emma had a noticeably thinner face than the other girls. I didn't take a comparison picture in the store and now wish I had. The sales associate near by also said she saw the difference but keep telling me they are all suppose to be the same. I was surprised at the new long body tag and she does not have the V slit for the neck-strings in the back.
edited to add: After taking out the braids I was completely overwhelmed with the kinky hair that I could not relax no matter what I did. Unfortunately, my frustration has caused me to part with her. While she is still a beautiful doll I would still rate her high because of her uniqueness, I, personally, need to enjoy her through everyone's pictures.
edited again: Since I have found some tips on straightening those kinks in the Nurse's Section, I did end up getting anther MG doll. The face mold is really growing on me and I hope that AG uses it more in the future because it just seems so realistic to me. Sorry about needing to edit again.
