My new Tonner/Effanbee Half Pint "Beach Day" doll arrived yesterday and I thought there might be some people interested in seeing her compared to other members of the Ann Estelle family.
All the ten inch doll bodies are essentially the same size and can wear the same clothes so the only significant difference from one doll to another is the head. So let's begin by comparing measurements. Ann Estelle, Sophie, Georgia and Gracie have head circumferences of between 7" and 7 3/8". Patsy has a smaller head at only 6 3/4". The new Half Pint's head measures a whopping 8 3/4"! Her head is HUGE compared to the other dolls. (Take a look at "Some Measurements" and "Getting Wiggy" sections for measuring details)
- Beach Day's wig (the other two Half Pints have rooted hair) is thin enough to see and feel the ridges along her scalp
- The glue used for her wig is much stronger than the usual and I gave up trying to remove the wig to avoid damaging it
- Her head is held on the tab in her neck so tightly that the head has very little mobility
