TIPS FOR IDENTIFYING GINGER:

All GINGER DOLLS have these traits, regardless of eye style.

  • Unique dimple on chin (actually a vertical dent just below lower lip)

  • Dimples on knuckles, at base of fingers and above toes
  • Mold seams cut through the middle of each ear.
  • All 5 fingers are separate with excellent detail
  • Mold flaw (circle) on the palms of hands at the wrist:

  • faint navel
  • feet have toes (with definite dimples above each toe) rather than molded shoes
  • the toes are the same length.
  • "Ginger" arm hook: (It's similar to a PMA "standard" or "C" hook, except for the squared-off base)
  • Ginger's eyebrows are a fine arch that taper nicely to a point on each end. Other dolls made from the Ginger mold often have thicker blunt-ended eyebrows.

  • Ginger has a wider stance than most dolls (exception: Uneeda Janie and some of the "Neither-Ginger-Nor-Pam-faced" dolls)

  • Pam stands with feet close together. 
  • Ginger stands with feet wide-apart. 
  • There are other torso differences, as well. Pam (along with most other dolls of this genre) has a very childlike, undefined torso. 
  • Ginger is shapelier, with a hint of waistline and broader hips.
