Changed from Jess to Ivy mold
You can tell from the notches on the outside corners of the eyes this is now the Ivy mold, which had previously only been used by Ivy.
#40 and #30 still use the Jess mold, which do not out have outside notches or tinting of the notches. The Jess mold only has notches on the inside (nose side) of the eyes.
Close up of #40's Jess mold face.
Brown hair (medium length)
Amber eyes (pinwheel like #26)
Back of #62's hair. It is mid back, and nicely thick. I would describe it as very lightly textured, if at all with subtle highlights in certain lights.
#62 Comparison Photos:
Both of these dolls have the amber eyes, and are the only two dolls to use this color. Both are medium vinyl colored. #62 has the Sonali mold while #26 has the Addy mold.
Both #62 and #46 have the Sonali mold. #62 is the medium dark vinyl and #46 is the dark vinyl color. #46 also has the dark brown eyes.

In the orangey/yellow store lights,
Blond hair (medium length)
Blue eyes (regular pinwheel blue)
Her hair is not layered and goes to shoulder length. It didn't feel very thick when I squeezed it, but it wasn't balding thin either.
Dark brown hair (mid back length)
Brown eyes (pinwheel dark brown)
Her hair is held back here with the dark brown braided headband.
You can see her eyes have the notches on the outer (ear side) and inner (nose side) of the eyes with slight tinting to add shadow and depth. This is different from the Jess mold which does not have the notch/cut out on the outside corner of the eye (ear side) and does not have any tinting.
As of now, Ivy, #54, and #64 are the only 3 dolls to have used this mold.
The back of her hair. You can see it is mid back length, feels decently thick, (more than #30), and dark brown, almost black with no highlighting, and is not layered.
Overall, I am very pleased with the variety offered in the new dolls, and I am thrilled to see Ivy's mold used again, despite my fear that it would be abandoned since Ivy did not sell well. This really gives me hope that we may see the Marie-Grace or #4 mold used again in the future. I think it would have been extremely exciting if #64 was medium or dark vinyl colored.
