DD received Marie Grace for Christmas from her grandmother. She was purchased from the Jill's Steals and Deals. She is a beautiful doll and her hair is nice, thick, and shiny, sans the side bushes. She definitely looks cuter in person. The first thing I noticed was her head is a lot bigger than the other dolls we own. Although this may be due to the doll being bought from Jills and not direct from AG. DD doesn't seem to mind though & plays with her so that's all the matters to me.
Personally I think she looks better in modern clothes and am not fond of her meet outfit at all.
DH bought me a brand new Jess doll for Christmas. Since she was GOTY before I started collecting this is my first time owning her. I always admired her from afar and was going to get a MyAG 30 but then hubby surprised me!
The Jess mold is by far my favorite & Miss Jess is a gorgeous doll. Her skin has a nice peachy color & her hair has a zig zag part with reddish highlights/tints. I haven't taken her braids out yet but from what I can feel, her hair is very soft and silky. It doesn't seem thin at all. Her eyes are not uneven & are a lighter shade of brown when the sun shines on them.
Her meet outfit is cute but I'm getting ready to put her in something warmer until spring arrives. I will take some pictures & post them later since I can't seem to upload from my iPad.
If you don't own her and are on the fence about purchasing her, I definitely recommend her over 30 or 40.
