|School Girl Keyshia (the doll in the center) is the newest edition to the Fashion Madness Kenya line.|
|Weekend Fun and Special Day Keysia (the dolls on the far left and far right) have identical faces. School Girl Keyshia (the doll in the middle) appears to use the same head sculpt, but she looks like a different doll.|
After my School Girl Keyshia arrived from ToysRUs.com, I realized it is as Ms. Leo suggested, her doll, also sold through ToysRUs.com, was painted differently, specifically the eyes. My doll's eyebrows are thinner than the original dolls'; the lips are painted differently, and the eyes are definitely larger. Her face might be slightly thinner as well. These changes give School Girl a totally different appearance, and I like it!
At the time I ordered School Girl, ToysRUs.com did not have a photograph of the doll on their website. I ordered anyway, hoping that 1) I would like the outfit; 2) that the doll would have the same facial characteristics as Ms. Leo's doll, and 3) that she was without flaws.
Two out of three wishes granted is not bad, but I would have preferred to receive all three. She does have flaws as shown below:
|School Girl's ears are pierced, but she has no earrings -- not really a flaw, but why the holes if no earrings?|
|Separated leg seam -- this is a flaw!|
|I am not sure if it is from the lining of her black velour jacket, but the worst flaw is black staining on her fingers, hands, and arms; it is on the under surface of her right arm as well.|
While School Girl Keyshia does not look like my other two Keyshias and she unfortunately arrived with flaws (which seems to be the case for all the dolls in the Kenya line), she does belong here. It would be wonderful, however, if the flaws were nonexistent!
