Our "Elizabell" arrived today. We ordered the day after she became available from AG, from the catalog. She is just adorable. Outfit is a sweet jumper with denim embroidered skirt and highlighted with floral ribbon. She has grey socks and red mary janes that close with velcro. She has blue unders that look like training pants. She has a deep, rich brown skintone that I love. My DD pointed out later that her skin is actually a bit lighter than the dark skinned bitty baby we have. It also feels a bit "rougher" but I appreciate that because I don't think it will be as likely to scuff. Her ringlet hair comes in 2 ponytails with a few ringlet curls around her face.
The back of her hair has shorter pieces in the center part for coverage. We did take down her hair (sorry, no pictures yet), and it is pretty nice and thick but for now at least does hold the shape of her ponies. And it does look like it will get frizzy relatively quickly, but I expected that. I'll try to post pics after maybe a month or so of play.

I picked out Shante at AGPLA on July 6th. I chose her because she had the nicest curls out of all of the dolls on the floor.
I am thrilled with the AA Bitty Twins. They have the most gorgeous skin coloring. Next to the AA Bitty Babies at the store, the BT makes the BB's skin look very dull. AA Bitty Twins also have lovely blush on their cheeks. The lips have great coloring too. Many AA dolls don't get lip coloring, but these ones do.
I give this new doll an A+. She is well worth the money spent on her. I know that I will get lots of enjoyment from having her.

Zoë is most assuredly the most adorable doll ever with "Bitty" in her name. I've never liked Bitty Babies and I've never been particularly interested in the Bitty Twins but Zoë (or "1G" as she's officially called) is fantastic.
I know I'm late on this, but we have this set and wearing it down isn't a pratical style. The curls are too boingy. I've done a ponytail on top of the head, or 2 braids. The curls do stay in really well though, and the pony tail style makes the unmanageability easier to deal with. I think this is the cutest doll I've ever seen (and my daughter has similar curls that we put in ponytails everyday that remind me SO much of this doll. I wish I could post pics, but I have yet to find my options too...

I am really late on this thread too, but wanted to add my opinion.
I purchased this doll for Christmas for my daughter. I think she is absolutely adorable! Unfortunately the one we ordered had a bum eye that kept sticking, so we had to get a replacement and send her back. For some reason my daughter liked the bum eye one better, but thats 3 yr olds for you!
I think her hair is adorable. Unfortunately I have to hide the hairbrush from my daughter because she wants to comb her hair and I think that would make it a poofy mess. She seems to be holding up well to mulitple clothing changes and she also sits way better than any of the other bitties we have had (we have the original brunette and blonde twin dolls as well as a standard bitty baby)
We are definatley happy with her. My daughter named her Kayla. She is adorable!
The Bitty Twins with dark vinyl are my daughter's first AG dolls, so forgive any shine marks and play wear.
I decided to start her on the Bitty Twins, as they are like little playmates rather than Bitty Baby who encourages nurturing play. I think that this pair is the cutest of the Bitty Twins produced! I've taken out girl-twin's pigtails and pulled apart a few curls to make it look a bit more full when down. It's still pretty obvious from the back that her hair was made to be in pigtails, but I don't think it looks half bad! There is so much fun and freedom playing with these dolls, since I'm totally anticipating a Doll Hospital visit in a few years.
Here are some photos of my daughter's baby Kendall, aka Kiki:
