A lot of people on social media have been commenting on the size of Corinne’s eyes. “It reminds me of Disney,” one comment said. I’ve assumed between the new face mold and the painted on eyelashes, her eyes just *look* bigger, but it turns out there may be some validity to these comments I’ve seen.
Rachel K, a lady who customizes American Girls dolls, started customizing a Corinne doll several days ago and discovered something interesting.
Corinne’s eyes are actually 2mm bigger than the average American Girl doll eye.
Here was the comparison photo Rachel shared, along with this caption:
Corinne Tan’s eyes are LARGER than regular AG eyes.
Therefore, her eyes cannot be swapped at this point!!
AG eyes measure~16mm.
Corrine’s eyes are~18mm”
At this time, Corinne is the ONLY American Girl doll with the Corinne face mold as well as 18mm eyes. I will be interested to see how this affects customizers moving forward, if using bigger eyes is something American Girl continues to do.
Have you ever customized a doll?
