Maryellen Eye & Hair Comparison Photos

Ever since we first found out about Maryellen, there’s been the question about what her eye color is. AG classifies it as “Hazel” which has brown and green in it, but I was told by store clerks it is a new “dark hazel” with more brown than previous eyes. I am uncertain if this is just a variation in the batch or if it is a distinct color in AG’s mind (as in if you were to send Maryellen to the Doll Hospital for new eyes, would she get the same dark hazel or any regular hazel eyes).

The fantastic KitandKat sent us several comparison photos she took of Maryellen with various other dolls to share. The compare both hair colors and eye colors so you can see for yourself what the differences are. SailorMolly on AGPT also sent us some great photos comparing Maryellen with Lanie which are included below as well.

  1. This is very interesting! I think Maryellen does have a new type of hazel! I have 7 dolls with hazel eyes and I was wondering if it would be okay if I did my own post comparing hazel eyes on my blog? I'll give you credit for the inspiration :)

    1. Thank you very much for asking Jaclynn! I think it would be great if you also did a hazel eyes comparison post with your dolls. There is so many variations of this eye color, the more images, the better! Please let me know when you post it so I can link to your post!

  2. ...this post made me realize just how many dolls have hazel eyes.
    Also, Maryellen is very pretty! She's definitely growing on me, oh no...

    2. Yes, I'm surprised at how frequently AG is using hazel eyes. I'd love to see dolls with grey eyes again, or other rare colors.

  3. Out of curiosity... What kind of hazel eyes did Isabelle have?

    1. Isabelle has the "regular" hazel eyes, but of course there were multiple bath variations with all hazel eyes. :)

  4. I would love to see a comparison of Maryellen with #33 as far as hair color if anyone has both. I have 33 but not Maryellen.

    1. I do not have 33 so I can't help there. Hopefully you'll be able to find someone who can do the comparison. 33 is a pretty common doll.

  5. I think I'm an anomaly. Or just weird (but what else is new there?!), but when I look at Kanani's eyes, or pictures of my Kanani, I don't see hazel, I just see green. I'm a weirdo.

    1. That's interesting! I think brown when I look at Kanani's eyes, opposite of you. :)

  6. Thank you for this post! I don't have Mia or Maryellen, but I was pretty sure that they had unique hazel eyes. This confirms that. Thanks again! :)

    1. I'm glad you found the post helpful! Maryellen's eyes were confusing me trying to figure out if they were unique or not. ^_^

  7. Nice post. Good comparison. Thank you KitandKat for supplying photos.

  8. Very informative! To me they look just a tiny bit different but not enough to sell me on the doll.

    1. That's how I felt too, and ended up selling Maryellen because she didn't stand out enough in my collection.
