Here is the new Cherry Jam doll from Bridge Direct. A cute dog named CinnaPup is included in the package as well as a purple comb. But cute as it may be, the puppy does not stand up very well on its own. It kept falling down as I tried to take photos.
I couldn't help but compare the new version with the older one from Hasbro. Their hair color is almost the same purple shade and they wear the same dress except for the flower which is only printed on the Bridge Direct dress while it's a button for the Hasbro doll. Their shoes are almost the same as well except there is a flower printed on the new doll.
Can you see how the new doll has more defined hands?
The new Cherry Jam comes with a headband. She also has much bigger eyes and her face is painted with bolder colors than the Hasbro doll.
They can wear each other's shoes and dress without any problem. I swapped their outfits to show you.
From behind as well!
There is really nothing much that sets them apart except for their face. I did notice however that the hair of the older version is better than the newer version. The Bridge Direct doll's hair falls out in clumps when I brush it. The Hasbro doll has smoother hair and it has never fallen down in clumps like this! Also, the bangs of the Bridge Direct doll is covered with some sort of glue that makes it stiff.
I must admit it is one of the reason why I prefer the Hasbro doll over the Bridge Direct doll. But maybe I am just not quick to embrace change.
Which doll do you prefer?
