So, let's get on with the fun and take a close look at this new baby and her accessories -- as well as comparing her to the original AG "Baby Polly" (or the baby from the retired "Baby and Stroller" set).
While the stock photos make this baby appear to be AG's classic medium skin tone, it is not. Comparing it to a Logan doll (2017 make, #10 vinyl tone), this is that exact tone. It's very dark painted hair, rather like the 1990s Caucasian Bitty Baby with Brown Hair. Baby also has dark brown painted eyes. Because of the darker coloring on the features, this baby looks equally good when held with a medium-skin tone doll, so there's a lot of scope for character building in your doll world. (Baby looks adorable with Nanea!)
New Baby has almost the same head, though it's slightly closer in style to the modified Bitty Baby.
The hands/arms and feet/legs are the very same mold and size on the new Baby as Baby Polly.
The hard vinyl body is slimmer than the old-style cloth body of Baby Polly, though you can still pinch the new diapers onto Baby Polly as shown in photos above.
The face paint, though very different in coloring, is the very same -- down to the number of eyelashes.
High Chair and Accessories
The food bowl and spoon are pink and white plastic -- not the best quality, not the worst. Cute.
The pumpkin baby food is removable from the bowl, and it's very weighty and a nice piece.
Next there are two pink polyester diapers (seen in photos above on both the older and newer style babies) with velcro closures, and a polyester bib for baby. While these aren't anything special in material or quality, they're cute and perfectly adequate for this small baby.
The changing pad is a bit of a disappointment, but nothing to knock stars away from the set as a whole. It's shiny nylon-like material and has a piece of velcro to keep it folded. It's a bit short for Baby, but for a play thing is likely to be enjoyed.
The Babysitting Guide book is printed on coated paper and has fully-readable pages inside.
Babies Sitting in the Chair
And finally, just to finish up with this adorable set -- some photos showing 18" dolls (Bunty and Eliot were only too happy to help with this) standing with the chair and the babies to show the scale of the pieces.
