I just got #24 last week. I have been wanting her for a while and I finally broke down and bought her when I went to AGPSeattle. She is so cute and I just love her hair and freckles!! Her hair is a good length and she has a pretty thick wig, much much thicker than my #23.
I was debating between #27 and #24, it was a hard decision but #24 has always caught my eye when looking the the My AG dolls so I thought it was finally time to bring her home. I have no regrets, she has quickly become one of my favorites.
Veline was my first AG doll. I got her in back in summer of 2011 because she looked the most like me. AG dolls aren't very common here in Sweden and I've gotten A LOT of compliments on her, and people saying we're like twins. Her arms and legs are a bit loose but I guess that might be since I've had her for a while. Though she has been stored for almost a year until now, since I did lose my interest in AGs for a while. Still I do remember her arms not being able to stay up even when I got her. That's probably not the same for all #24 though. Her hair is a bit messy nowadays. The ends are in need of some kind of treatment (at least it doesn't look like the "doll hospital dolls'" in the AG catalogue! XD). I'm not sure what to do to it and since I've lost my hair brush I don't dare to brush her hair with any other brush. Though it does look WAY better than my Kanani doll's hair ... Just remember to spray her hair with water before you brush it (like I didn't) and I think it will stay as beautiful as it looks when she's new, for much longer! Her eyes are pretty. Still I'm not the biggest fan, but I guess that might be cause I wanted her to look like me and I'm green eyed ... I've never met a blond person with brown eyes but I'm sure they exist. It's a nice change from the normal blond, blue-eyed dolls, though. I like her freckles and I think they look pretty realistic! It was kind of unexpected to see what a big difference there is between her and other #24 dolls' face paint! I feel lucky I got a doll with these kind of freckles, since I wasn't able to choose her myself (I ordered her from AG, since we don't have any stores here in Sweden. Which is kind of understandable since it is in fact called American girl. Though it's still sad, and shipping costs a lot ...)! I do love her a lot, though she is getting customized soon! Not sure who's wig she'll get, but her's is already booked. (This sounds wrong to me for some reason ... XD) I do wish she had feathered eyebrows, in my opinion all dolls should at least come with that option since I think it looks way more realistic and usually cuter too. Though that is just a personal preference. Overall I'd give her a 4 out of 5

She is one of the prettiest dolls, I think. I bought my Daphne at the MCM sale. I love her hair: the thickness, length, and amount of curl are just right for playing without being too difficult. Her face looks very assertive to me, she looks like a smart and brave girl. I love her to bits. A+ doll!
