This is a review for the new revised version of #19 with the new hair style:
She has a lot less hair than the old version, it is not so curled at the end either and it is just a smidge shorter than the old version as well. Her bangs are also greatly reduced, less bangs and a smaller section of it. The texture is almost the same except that I do think the new version has slightly (very slightly) thinner hair strands. She has the short hairs in between each hair line so that her wig cap doesn't show when her hair is up.
I love the green color of her eyes with this hair color, in my opinion, they are a bit less "shocking" than when they are combined with Felicity's red/auburn hair.
I give this doll an "A", as although she has less hair than the original version, the style is quite fun to play with. It gives them an all over different look. I find that the hair lays down great and seems to be very easy to manage. After getting her, I like her just as much and really don't think one version is better than the other. It is also nice to have the variety.
I have to admit that this doll did nothing for me in pictures and online but in person...wow! I just got back from AG where I got to look this girl over and she is breathtaking! Her eyes are intense in person but not as fake looking as they are in pictures. Her hair is a lovely light brown--lighter than in pictures I have seen and has auburn tints to it. She is so cute! She has jumped up the list of dolls on my want list!
This doll is very cute and sweet and I adore her. Mine is named Zoe Winter. Normally the laser green eyes don't appeal to me and admittedly she would be very pretty with the new green eyes, but the laser ones look nice on her. The startling eye color does clash a bit with some clothing colors sometimes and she tends to look best in green, but pink, purple, and yellow are nice, also.
Her wig is not all that great. I think it's the same as the other revised banged wigs? It's cut in kind of weird layers and I don't really like the giant curl under "fwoop" thing it does. The wig is also pretty thin compared to many AG wigs, BUT I think the thickness is actually pretty realistic if you shrank a child down to her size. The thinness doesn't really bother me and I can style her hair assorted ways without any wig cap showing through. I do like the revised bangs and the texture of the hair is very nice. It isn't super slick like some of the dolls' hair and feels more like real hair to me.
Setting aside my own very affectionate feelings towards my Zoe, I would give #19 a B. The wig bugs me! But if you're fine with the revised wig style and want a sweet, "average" (as in not super exotic or breathtakingly gorgeous) doll, you can't go wrong with this cutie.
