I purchased two of the new dolls without hair options on release day. Both are wonderful, but this doll is particularly unique, given that a medium skin Sonali mold is currently only available as a doll without hair. The three eye color options available for this doll are hazel, light brown, and dark brown. The light brown was my choice. They are *not* the same color as #26's eyes, which are amber. This light brown is what we refer to as regular brown, whereas dolls like Kaya and Josefina have dark brown eyes and Samantha and Ivy have decal brown eyes, which are also different. I love this concept, and I have only good things to say about the dolls. Their heads are completely smooth. No bumps, marks, or lines like have been found in rewigging other AG dolls. The current price for these dolls is $105, the same price as a doll with hair. They also come with the option to have a free head replacement (information posted below) should you decide you want your doll to have hair later. A+
In her box. There is some padding around the head to prevent any scratches or damage during shipping.
Aaryana hit all the main points but I wanted to mention that these dolls do come with an Innerstar U code and charm necklace.
Some comparison pictures with Sonali and MyAG #26
It doesn't show very well in these shots but medium skin Sonali has the same color eyes as Sonali. I can't see a difference no matter which angle I look at them. It's a little darker than the amber shade on my #26.
The height difference is just because my Sonali is wearing platform sandals.

As soon as I saw this beautiful girl, I knew I just had to have her. She arrived this morning, which was a lovely surprise, since I ordered her Thursday and was told it would be 12-16 business days before she would arrive because of the holiday and the customization process.
Jasmine is my first Sonali mold doll, and she is gorgeous! I also ordered her with light brown eyes, which are the same color as my #24's and #28's eyes. They're definitely darker than my #26's eyes, and lighter than Kaya's eyes.
She's very cute without hair, but I did go ahead and order a wig for her, which may or may not be permanently attached. (I haven't fully developed her character yet, and it'll be nice to have the hair option, just in case.) I'll most likely wait and see what the wig looks like on her before I make any decisions.
Doll Grade: A+
Here she is, just a few minutes after I took her out of her box:
I just received mine -- like everyone else I couldn't resist the Sonali mold with medium skin. I slipped a Blythe wig on her and then started to dress her in an outfit -- and the wig slipped right off again! Actually it slithered a lot just putting it on. So the only additional comment I can make that hasn't been covered above is that with no old glue vestiges to act like velcro for wig placement, a wig is probably going to be very temporary in nature unless you glue it down. Which would take away part of the play value, I should think.
I would have preferred the doll to arrive in a hospital gown, since she came from the hospital! And the new body tag is ridiculous. Although it's interesting that the copyright date is 2011.
I ordered dark brown eyes. Comparison with AGT #2 and #11 seems inconclusive. #2 is supposed to have light brown eyes (and brown hair) and #11 has dark brown eyes and black hair. I think the wigless doll's eyes look more like #2 than they do #11 but somewhere in between, in person.
With Zhindi, #2
With Morgan, #11
I never intended that this girl be ill -- I planned to make her into a Star Trek character from the first ST Movie. And I must admit, that although she looks cute in hats and scarves
