I got my Lindsey the year she was introduced (that's her in my sig picture), and I love her! Her hair is my favorite to style, because the curls can be brushed so many different ways. I love to give her a 20s-30s bob, flip it out for a 50s-60s look, twist it back in different kinds of rolls for a very sophisticated updo, etc. She's always my Shirley Temple model whenever I need that, too (although I do wish I had #21 for that!). She was also my first modern doll, so for a long time, when I was teaching myself to sew, whenever I made modern clothes I would model them after hers.
When I got her in 2001, I was used to AG dolls having the typical long hair with bangs and no freckles, so Lindsey felt very much more alive and un-doll-like to me, more personal and less cookie-cutter. I think her uniqueness fits her spunky personality, and I love her for it. Plus, imo she deserves special honor as the first LE character.
