She is a beautiful doll. She reminds me of Cecile, because of the curls. We have brushed out Caroline's curls, so I was just wondering, what the proper way is to care for hair with the tight curls. How easy is it to style into ponytails, braids, and etc.? I see AG has a video showing how to put the tight curls in the doll's hair, so I'm wondering , if you pick too much or style the hair do the curls come out?
I have a 46 that is 4 years old. I comb out her hair completely on the 13 of this month,and put the curls back in, it had been styled many times but never complete comb out. So it is possible for the curls to return with some limitations of nature. So if it gets combed out many times they curls will lose some ability to bounce back, I would say over time.
I am planning to leave their hair in curls for as long as it will stay. I'm afraid I won't be able to get it back. Madelon
Thanks for your help Maxine. Sounds like you and Hope Faith have so much fun! Do you have a schedule for each doll to comb out the hair? That is something that I hadn't thought about, so each doll gets special treatment. Currently, the girls will bring everyone out for a hair day and that gets a bit overwhelming. Thanks for the inspiration!
I have 46 and Gabriela. The hair is different. Gabriela's is much softer and is shinier than number 46. It may be a little longer but is very close. Same basic style, though. Yes, they are very much a like. That said, what about Melody? She has the same face mold, same skin color, and same eye color. The difference is her hair. Since her hair style is totally dufferent than any other doll, the similarities are not as noticable. I think ithat AG made a big mistake when they used a wig that was so much lke number 46. That said, the same face molds are being used over and over so that the more dolls they make the more we will notice the similarities. AG should consider making new face molds so that their new dolls will be more original.
I like the idea of new face mold. Had kind of hoped a big anniversary like 30 would have seen this, or at least Melody had had a new mold. I wonder if the boy doll rumoured will be a new mold.
I would love a new face mold, too. Madelon
Thank you, so very much for thid. Can't wait for this to happen at our house. We will raise them as Twins. We only have 46 from 2013, so hopefully we can get her a meet before then stop selling them. And grab Gabriela very soon.
Thanks, Maxine! Madelon
I am going in February to get Gabby and see the Tenney collection. Not sure how I will feel about Tenney and Gabby collections, but I will support GOTY. HUGE disappointment of how AG is treating GOTY and Felicity rumors sound scary. Thank you so much for them review. I had a hunch that the hair quality is different on Gabby vs 46. I also noticed Addy Christmas dress is no longer on the AG website. Her hair quality is different from Mattel Addy. Lots of changes.
Addy dress is back on their site. Few!
Sad that more wasn't done with Gabby. If Felicity releases with no collection and only in three stores, it would probably be just to sell the books again. I find it hard to believe that they won't release more dolls in 2017 with the possible exception of Logan. Madelon
I am also disappointed in AG for how they are handling the GOTY. There are other people on the AG Facebook that feel the same way. I'm hoping and praying that AG is listening to our voices and is planning on some changes to the GOTY collection in the future. We will be supporting GOTY. AG's marketing sure seems missing for GOTY and Felicity, IMO. On Instagram they posted picture of behind the scenes for Tenney, nothing for Felicity. Unless I missed it, but I did get e-mails for the Tenney posts. There didn't seem to be as much hype for GOTY. They did have the clues, but just didn't seem the same as the clues for Grace and Lea. It was nice to see that they gave all the girls at the reveal on ABC a GOTY doll.
I hope that AG adds some nice clothes to Gabriela's collection in the future. Since I have both 46 and Gabriela, I try to focus of their differences. Gabriela's story is written for us but I can write 46's story myself. I don't always like everything AG makes but I am an avid AG doll collector. I have Felicity but sure wish her colkection would be in all stores.
I like your way of looking at this. Madelon
I agree. I am not rethinking of renaming 46 once Gabby comes into our home. Our Gabby doll will be unique and new with her own story.
THANKS MADELON FOR SHARING.
