I guess this means Easton and Grant will be this size (22.5") as well? So glad I got my Eastons a while back. The tiny size was a part of what made them appeal to me.
I am not liking the larger size at all!!! They have made the eyes larger which is making it look more dolly looking.
My daughter was 22.5 when she was born weighing 9lbs. 1oz
OH NO!!! I’ve been waiting on Easton FOREVER and if this is the size he’ll be now, I won’t be ordering. BOOOOOOO…I loved him the size he was. Darn. WHY do they have to mess with sculpts? I don’t like the new Cozy, either, or the new Gabriel…waaaaaaa, waaaaaaa, waaaaaaa!!! Guess I’ll just keep reborning Precious Gift forever. They’d better NOT mess with that one!
AW MAN!!! This new kit is cute and I love the crease detail, but it is NOT Elliot. I loved tiny Elliot and have been waiting so long for him to come back. What a disappointment. I’m bummed out!!!
Did anybody like him?
I posted this on another thread. I really hate these new kits…this has happened every time BB has altered a kit and I wish they would just leave them alone. Sculptors know best, am I right?
I’m for the saying ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’. Especially if you can no longer get the original version.
Bigger kits are a huge turnoff for those that root. Plus, it seems that more collectors prefer the smaller sizes because of space issues.
I think BMN did a great job on the painting and rooting. However, those eyes are totally wrong for that size socket. Those brand of glass eyes tend to have a smaller iris. That kit needs eyes with a larger iris to soften the look, such as Adrie’s flatbacks or the full rounds with larger irises.
Oh darn…I don’t like it this size…I have been waiting for Grant and Easton to come out again, now I don’t think so…Why do they keep doing this?
It wouldn’t be as bad if the original size was still available…will it? @EmilyBB?
I agree, I really liked the original size and doll. Looks totally different now.
I hope this doesn’t become a trend. I like small babies (16-18")
Bummer. I was planning to order him,for my youngest’s Christmas baby bit not that big or those eyes. Search continues.
