AG Eye Colors

American Girls have quite a variety of beautiful eye colors but I was having trouble keeping them apart so I made a list of the different eye colors and which dolls have them as a reference, and posted it here for everyone's use. Please let me know if you see any errors! Color may vary depending on the age of the doll and what batch it's from.

*DO NOT use these on your site/blog/channel, or direct link to the images. Feel free to link to this post.*

Sea Foam:

Caroline is the only doll with this color to date.


Decal Green (Laser Green):



Dark Pinwheel Green:

#37, #41, #52, and #61 in the modern line are the only dolls with this color to date.


Amber:

#26 & #62 are the only dolls with this color to date.


Decal Brown:

Samantha and Ivy are the only two dolls with this color to date.


Pinwheel Brown:
Thank you so much to Dolltopia (Eva) from AmericanGirlUtopia for taking and sending in this photo of her Julie's eyes! You can visit her blog here: http://americangirlutopia.blogspot.com/


Dark Pinwheel Brown:



Dark Blue:

Kit, Nellie, and #27 are the only dolls to date with this color.


Blue:



Turquoise:

Saige is the only doll with this color to date.


Aquamarine:

Marie-Grace is the only doll with this color to date.


Grey:

Molly, Ruthie, #9, original #19, and #20 are the only dolls with this color to date.


Hazel:


The hazel eyes are famous for having large variations in color from batch to batch. Although AG characterizes them all as the color "hazel", the difference is noticeable.

wherethelilacsbloom shared with us this image comparing two different hazel eyes from 2 Rebecca dolls.
Left: From a Classic/Pre-Beforever Rebecca doll. Color is shared by Lanie and other older dolls.
Right: From a BeForever (post 2014) Rebecca doll. Color is shared by #55, Isabelle, etc.
*Note this is not a hard and fast rule, as you can see that the hazel eyes pictured above are from my Rebecca who is a Classic/Pre-Beforever doll, and yet is more similar to the eye on the right. 

Hazel Eye Variation Chart
This chart is compiled from the photos KitandKat sent us to share on the blog, comparing Maryellen with numerous other dolls. You can view the full post here: http://lissieandlilly.blogspot.com/2015/09/maryellen-eye-hair-comparison-photos.html

    1. The only doll with Amber eyes is the MyAG #26. :)

      Delete
    2. The new Truly Me, #62 has amber eyes too. AG describes them as brown, but they are unlike Julie's or #24's.

      Delete
    3. Yup, I replied to Morgan before #62 was released, and added her to the post when she was released. :)

    1. Felicity, MyAG 6, 8, and 10 are the ones that jump to mind though there may be other modern dolls with the laser green eyes I'm forgetting. ^_^

    2. You forgot number 19 she is currently the only doll with the original mattel green eyes that isn't retired.

      Delete
  8. Could you do something on eye shapes/face molds too? That would be really helpful, thanks!

    1. That's a good suggestion! If I have the time, I will look into doing one for face molds as well. ^_^

  9. Does Kaya have the dark pinwheel brown or the pinwheel brown eyes? I'm having trouble telling from the photo of Julie because its sort of far back from her eyes.

    1. Hmmm, I want to say she has the regular pinwheel brown but can't remember. :/

  10. Wow, this is super helpful! Looks like it was fun to make too... :D I am planning on buying a used Isabelle doll in the future for customizing, what (general) hazel category do you think the shade of her eyes fall in? :)

    1. I'm glad you find it helpful! There are so many different variations in the hazel eyes, even among the same doll that it is hard to say. :/ Some Isabelle dolls have darker hazel eyes and some have lighter.

      Delete
    2. I have Isabelle!! Most of them have a dark hazel with a few shades of grey and lavender. They look allot like Maryellen's eyes. Oh and sorry for a late reply!
      PS: I think I know you from Youtube!!

  11. Thank very much for this chart! I had been noticing variations in the AG hazel colors for awhile, but thought that it just might be my imagination. Now all is clear to me. Thank you again! :)

  12. I believe my #55 doll has a Rebecca-Kanani hazel version, what do you think?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The hazel eyes have so many batch to batch variations that it's completely possible your #55 falls somewhere in the spectrum between Rebecca and Kanani. :)

      Delete
  13. I have a first step edition Rebecca doll with an artist mark, I love her eye color and am glad it is not the beforever color!

    1. I am very happy with her! I even got her signed by her author!!! Since I don't have Samantha she is my Victorian beauty!

    2. That's so neat that she's signed by the author!

  14. This chart is super helpful but do you think you could work on one concerning hair color (and maybe skin color) too

    ReplyDelete
  15. I want to get a truly me and since my parents probably won't be able to take me to the store so I can pick one out in person more info or pictures about hair and skin color would be very useful and much appreciated

    1. I'm so glad to hear you found this post helpful! Thank you for the suggestion about hair color and vinyl color. At the moment, I do not have enough dolls for a hair comparison post, because there are so many variations. In regards to the vinyl coloring, I also do not have all the dolls for that post but from what I recall, there are a few main variations:

      Very Dark - Addy
      Standard AG Dark - Cecile, #58
      Medium - Marisol, #49, Josefina, Kaya
      Light - All light vinyl dolls
      Grey - This is not an actual color, but a factory defect during the early 2000s where some of the dolls have a greyish tint to their vinyl
      Light Yellow - Back when #4 first came out, she had a slightly yellowish tint to her vinyl, but once again this was not "official" AG coloring.

      There is so much variation in the vinyl, from batch to batch, so keep that in mind. :)

  16. Thanks, your reply was quite helpful - I was also wondering if my dolls had slightly different skin colors but now i know its just from variation amongst batches!

    ReplyDelete

    1. I'm glad it helped! Yes, there are so many variations in the dolls depending on what factory they were produced at, how the colors were mixed, etc. ^_^ But that's okay because that's what makes each doll unique right? :D

  17. Does anybody know what color #42's eyes are? I looked at her in store and could tell that her eyes were definitely a different color than my #58's and looked closer to Decal Brown or Amber! :) Thanks!

    1. According to AG, #42's eyes are regular, light brown, and #58 has the dark brown eyes, though with all eye colors it is possible to have batch variations.

      Delete
    2. Which dolls have Dark Pinwheel Brown eyes? I read on the AG Wiki that said color was mostly used for DOC (Dolls Of Color). I`m just really curious. Thanks!

      Delete
    3. Hmmm... I can't remember them off the top of my head unfortunately, aside from Sawako Lilly (modern doll #4) who I see everyday. Your best best would be to check the AG Wikia page for the doll you had in mind to see if they had the dark brown eyes.

  18. What about Lea's eyes? Are they a new kind of hazel or do they match a previous shade?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Did you see the review for Lea? :) I compared her with Rebecca & Kanani. It looks like her eyes are standard hazel.

      Delete
    2. I will go check that out. Thank you!!

  19. I just ordered AND returned #62 and #47 because you could actually see the light blue part of the eye ball. (The part that is silver in your pix...) What could cause that to happen? What is happening to the quality of AG dolls?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That can happen sometimes due to the way the eye socket is shaped unfortunately. :( I'm sorry to hear you had to return two dolls due to this.

  20. Lazer green is so pretty! I think I'm falling in love with Lissie<3

    1. I personally think it's a really arresting, interesting color and wish they would still make more dolls with that eye color!

  22. Do you need photos of Lea's eyes?

    1. I have some photos of Lea's eyes, thank you for asking! ^_^ Since her's are just hazel, I didn't bother making a new listing just for her.

      Delete
    2. Lea actually has a unique eye color

      Delete
    3. I was going by the AG website, which has her down as hazel, though I agree it is a different variation of hazel that is supposed to be more yellow.

      Delete
    4. Actually, the eyes have a grayer shade of green, with more brown and thicker black outline.

      Delete
    5. That's great that her eyes have those colors and distinctions for you. For myself, I do not see any difference in her eyes aside from more yellow, similar to Mia's eyes, that isn't just a potential factory variance.

  23. I love Caroline's eyes, although when I got into American girl dolls enough to consider getting one, I realised that they retired her like, a week before I went on vacation to America.

    1. Aw, that's a shame you missed out on her direct from AG. It's a good thing you can always turn to eBay. :)
