I don't have this doll, but my friend does. Her name is Avery. I love, love, love her! She is so cute and squishy. Lol. But she was given a haircut by my best friend a long while back. Her hair is really soft, yes, very thin, but very soft in real life and Avery looks pretty good with this haircut IMO. (Just not in this pic! I wish I could get a better one to show) Avery is indeed PM. The stamp on her neck reads "Pleasant Company". She has soft eyelashes and as mentioned before, a plump and squishy cloth body. I'd give miss Avery Kay -her middle name- an A++ [mod edited to remove dead image link]

Meredith (my #22) arrived yesterday, and I have to say, she's GAWGESS!
Her hair is a nice length, and it's very thick, much thicker than my #23's. She has bright blue eyes that seem to glow, and her stuffing is nice and thick. I had said I wouldn't buy a blonde doll, but now that I have her, I don't regret getting her!

I purchased this doll recently and personally I think she's beautiful. If you're looking for a blond doll I would recommend her over Julie as a first choice any day. I really like the color of her hair. It is almost white-blonde and has a nice gloss to it. It is also very easy to style. Her wig is, however, very thin, especially in the back. There are some places where I can see the fabric part of the wig very easily. Aside from the wig problems, I think this is a great doll and I'm glad she's a part of my collection.
When I first got back into AG #22 caught my eye and I wanted her. But instead I bought (and sold) several other dolls. Recently I won a #22 on a last minute bid to make a custom from. But when she arrived I fell in love. So much that I decided to sell her and buy myself a brand new #22 (who is my first brand new AG doll in 21 years!) Anyway I am so happy with her. I find that #22 has a thinner wig than some of the other dolls. But I love the flip because it can be styled to flip in or out. I also like the length, it is perfect for a wide variety of styles and is not overly high maintenance. My #22 has a set of the new brighter blue eyes. While I don't think there is a huge color difference, I do like these newer eyes better. Overall she has nice coloring and looks good in just about everything! I would recommend #22 for anyone. I give her a solid A!
I purchased Ashley, my #22, in spring 2008 at AGPNY to be twins with my #27, Alyson. To be honest, #22 and #27 do not look a like as much as I imagined they would. #22's wig is a very bleached shade of blonde; it's almost white. Her wig flips out at the ends, which to me, makes her look very glamorous. Aside from that, her wig is very thick. My only complaint is that her wig tends to be drier than my other dolls' wigs; it has been like this since the day I purchased her. Her light blue eyes fit perfectly with her other features. Overall, I think she is a very pretty doll and would be the perfect addition to any collection. Overall grade: A+
Now, an obligatory comparison photo featuring #27:
I have a number 22 and she does not look like any of your dolls. Her hair was extremely dry. We(DD and I) put conditioner in it, and let it sit for about an hour. Then we rinsed it out and I brushed it. Her hair is soft now. Her hair appears a different color, almost like a platinum blonde. I'll post a picture this coming week. My older DD picked her out when she was 5.
