Bad Eyes On New AG Doll

 I just got a brand new JLY 80 from AG.

I had a gift certificate from work, and I really planned and anticipated this purchase for a long time.

And she came with the bad eyes that are supposedly not in circulation anymore.

Come on, AG. You can do better than this.

I really don't want to call customer support to ask for an exchange, but I guess I have to.


It's easier to tell in person which eye are the bad eyes, because you can feel for the ridges between the irises and the whites of the eyes. The whites are also blindingly white. 

I know of two other people on IG who also got #80s with bad eyes this week. 

Some people have said that they keep their dolls as-is with the bad eye, but  it just really bothers me.

 My CYO Aurelie is the only doll I have with bad eyes, and she looks good in pictures, but it really bothers me in real life. I feel like I haven't bonded with her because of this and keep thinking about swapping out her eyes. This is complicated by the fast that Aurelie is a Jess mold, and they are hard to eye swap.

  1. I guess I'm stupid, because I can't tell. Heck, maybe the poor poppet was at the very back of the store and is so old that she dates back to the "bad eye" era.
