|Made to Move Barbie has been here nearly a year, remaining confined to her packaging. Gabby urged her to come on out now; so she did.|
Does the MTM body she is on have a longer neck or is it just a different style head than the MTM? She looks a little darker than the yellow top MTM. Is she?The two dolls do share the Made to Move Barbie body; however, there are subtle differences. In answer to Ms. Leo's two questions, the neck lengths are the same, approximately 1/2 inches long each. Gabby is, in fact, slightly darker than Made to Move Barbie. See the complexion and other differences between the two bodies in the photos shared below:
|Gabby's complexion is slightly darker than MTM Barbie's with Barbie's having more yellow undertones to her caramel complexion and Gabby having more red undertones.|
|Even though the flash interferes with this head-shot comparison of their complexion, Gabby's slightly darker complexion is apparent.|
|An arm-in-arm comparison photo illustrates the subtle differences in complexions, particularly when their free arms are compared.|
|Their joints are all the same as I described in Gabby's original post; however, their body markings differ.|
|They have different shaped feet with MTM Barbie's foot having a higher arch. Foot Markings: MTM Barbie, R2 on right and L1 on left; Gabby, R1 on right and L4 on left.|
|MTM Barbie is 11-1/2 inches tall. Gabby is 11-1/4 inches tall. MTM Barbie's over-sized head adds to her height. Their bodies are the same size.|
|The height difference is more apparent in this back-to-back photo.|
|Red Ruffles Fashionista and MTM Barbie|
Red Ruffles, who has been here much longer than MTM Barbie, has been desiring freedom and a new body for quite some time. Since I do not care for the over-sized Asha head on MTM Barbie, Red Ruffles' wish will probably be granted very soon.
