My Kit is from 2005. I think she may be a transitional doll because she still has the lighter face paint, PC stamp, zip tie neck closure, and a more round face with softer looking eyes. I love her! Especially in comparison to the new Mattel Kit that I've seen in store - their wigs are flat, lifeless, and cheap looking compared to my Kit's.
It's also really obvious when she's put next to my Mattel Molly. Kit's face looks so much larger! She's also taller as well. Not sure if this is just a normal difference between Kit and Molly or if it was a change across editions of Kit.
