The american girl doll was the first barbie made with the revolutionary "bendable leg". This allowed her to be posed in so many more ways. There were three versions of american girl made and this doll is the second one. This is noted by her mark which has the same beginning of c 1958/mattel inc.
Pat pend but it is finished with made in japan which is raised. These dolls were made with the all new "modern" page boy haircut. This doll's hair is fantastic, nice and silky smooth, no missing plugs, no hair cuts.To match her fantastic hair this lovely lady has nice long brown eyebrows, no missing paint. Her eye makeup is superb.
There is no green ear ever, no nips, pinpricks or stains on her face at all. The only detraction, if you even call it one, is that her lips have faded. Her body is amazing she has nice tight limbs. Her legs click three times and hold all three positions. There are no splits at the knees, very common on this doll, front nor back.Her fingers and toes are free of nips, cracks, and tears. She has about 85% of her nail polish and no toe polish. One foot does have a few minor bite marks. Barbie is wearing a near mint senior prom #953 dress.
This dress is absolutely gorgeous the satin is still shiny and luminescent. The top of the bodice is not faded and hugs her body well. The tulle strips that fall over the skirt are also perfect. The dress retains the two original snaps on the back. The dress has an excellent barbie r tag inside.
