Of the dolls from my previous post, I decided to open Special Day Keyshia first (thanks to some good advice and quality concerns).
She came with no socks and no earrings (sigh). Otherwise, she's in good condition. Here's a close-up.
And here's a full shot.
Thanks to posts on I-Luv-Dolls and Black Doll Collecting blogs, I expected there to be differences between this Keyshia and my Weekend Fun Keyshia, and there are. They are both cute, though.
Check out my Weekend Fun Keyshia post for a more detailed review of the Keyshia doll in general, and my Small Girl Dolls Comparisons post to check out how Keyshia's articulation compares to other dolls.
Here are Kenya (rebodied), TJ, and the two Keyshia's.
So guess what happens next?
That's right! It's head swappin' time! In today's head swap, AA Todd grows a bit, while Special Day Keyshia shrinks. Todd's head fits well on Keyshia's body, but Keyshia's head is a little loose on Janet's body (yep, Todd was using Jane'ts articulated body prior to this). I know that Keyshia's head is too big for this body, but she will have to deal with it until the next swap. I like Todd's head better on this body than I did on his original stiff body or Janet's articulated body.
Here's the new Todd compared to some of my other teen and tween boys.
I'll have to give short Keyshia a new name. I'm thinking about Keylee. What do you think? Here's Keylee and Janet becoming acquainted, Todd Brown and Todd White are about to play ball (although Todd Brown now has an unfair advantage), and others just hanging out.
