|Left to right: Spring Morning, Winter Wowzers and One Fine Day.|
|Getting ready for Easter.|
I have two theories as to why "Spring Morning" has a wider face. #1: Perhaps it has to do with how the soft vinyl heads were pulled out of the molds, or #2: perhaps the mold used for the 2013s may have been different. From my limited understanding, companies have more than one mold of the same face. (Therefore, if one mold breaks or gets worn out from use, they'll still have another.) The 2013s may have been cast with a different mold, even though they are the same sculpt.
Anyway, I think the 2012 dolls are every bit as beautiful as the 2013s. I mean, look at that face! I had to get "Spring Morning." I wanted to get her before she was completely sold out everywhere. Plus, she's the only 16" Poppy so far with left-glancing eyes.

I ended up plucking out the bangs on my "One Fine Day." The bangs are set far back from the hairline, which I personally loved, because it meant I could use tweezers to pluck them out without disrupting the hairline or doing a partial re-root. Yay! I think she looks amazing without the bangs. It only took about 15 minutes. Now she looks even more like Michelle Pfeiffer than she did before. LOL. She also makes me think of Samantha from the TV show "Bewitched." Might just be the curled, retro hairstyle, though.
