My #21 was purchased used and her pincurls seem to have been brushed out. I almost purchased this doll for my step-daughter nearly three years ago, but decided to get Lanie so that she would have some books to go with her doll. I've always been drawn to #21, and in person she is lovely. I did think that Lanie was the prettier of the two. I love the unique color of her hair. The length and the texture makes her hair so different from any of my others. It looks good up or down. A lot of people here have mentioned how versatile she is and I have to agree! This girl is timeless!
Her hair looks really cute in pigtails, too!
I had intended to use #21 as a sister for #38, but after getting overwhelmed by dollies and underwhelmed by this one in particular #21 went to live with another board member. I think I would have liked her better with her pincurls.
