I owned #16 for a few years. She was nearly identical to my Sam. I have pictures of them taken at the same time:
Can you guess which one is 16? It took a lot of squinting for me to figure it out.. Sam is holding her doll. 16 is wearing Sam's christmas dress and holding a teddy. I called 16 Claira. My suggestion is, if you want the looks of Sam without the price tag. Go for a 16.

I ordered Felicity's christmas dress December 27th. A day or so before it sold out. I was very disapointed to see velcro on the stomacher. My mother had made Felicity's christmas dress for me as a child. I had to finish it after she died (making the stomacher from the pattern) I was hoping that it would come with the snaps like the pattern used. So, that I could interchange pieces as needed. Boy am I disapointed. I haven't even wanted to try it on any of my girls.
I have the Pleasant Company Feclicity's night gown for myself. I even wore it yesterday evening to bed. I got it when I was 10 or so. 12yrs later still fits well. I think they stopped selling the cap with the nightgown between 5-8 years ago. Mine came with the cap. But mind you it says Pleasant Company not American Girl. AG doesnt do things (in my opinion) as efficiently as they did back then. Other than pilling on the nightgown mine held up very well over the years.
i just got rebbecca in the mail on friday!!! I am super happy !!! I was kinda sad her wig is so thin. But my biggest disapointment was her eyes. I thought they said they were hazel. Her eyes are green ! I had a premattel 21 and her eyes were hazel. beckie's are green! they are the same as my felicity's. But i will say she is the loveliest AG doll i own next to samantha, but sam to me is a different level of lovely. beckie reminds me of the warner bro. version of the little princess. thats what i think of when i see her. she is my little princess!!! I havent removed her clothes yet or her hair clip. I plan on making her some clothes soon. My great great grandmother Anna had the same hairstyle in 1914 and she was around the same age as beckie and was a austrian imagrant who's family was settling in America. so i can relate to Beckie!
