AM Baby doll: actually a Bye-Lo baby, stamped to body. Hands molded plastic, not composition. Good overall.
AM toddler: head ok condition, loose in socket, needs restringing. Left pinky maybe repainted, clothes shredded.
Martha Chase-type: Paint loss to hands, cheeks, and nose. Hair paint cracked, colors crisp.
Kamkins: Minor facial abrasions primarily to cheeks, good overall.
