I'm not too excited about Lavender Hug and Simply Love Me, the two next releases. But onto pictures so you can make your own decision:
Ok, Lavender Hug is adorable, but it's because she's an FBL. I had a purple haired FBL for a while before she turned into a blond named Laraine: (my poor girl Zooey has gone under many transformations)
She has a Simply Lilac scalp, which has normal bangs. What the crap is up with Lavender Hug's bangs?
I hate that cut! Who decided to give her a bowl cut? She looks ridiculous with it.

I'm not too thrilled with the color of her hair. It's kinda flat. I thought Lilac's purple hair was a flat purple as well. I don't know how well to describe a color being flat, but it just doesn't pop or have anything interesting about it. Simply Thumpy Thump's purple hair is gorgeous, but LH's looks like STT's after 100 washes in the washing machine.
I do like that she's an FBL and comes with special front facing brown chips. Her pale skin doesn't seem any different from the Manga Twins.
The only thing great about her stock is those earmuffs.
She's a cute FBL, just not worth my money.
Release Date: December 28, 2012

SIMPLY LOVE ME
Maybe I just find blond dolls boring, but I find her boring.
Her hair isn't the same length and it looks like she has split ends. Plus, I don't like that brassy blond color. Either go realistic blond or yellow.
She's your cheerful new best friend ready to wear what ever fashion you choose!
"Simply Love Me" is like a cherished best friend.
She wears the popular wedge boot style shoe.
Her new, thick red hair band pops next to her bright blonde hair.
