Strange things have happened these past few years. Some old sculpts have gotten new year marks, seemingly without obvious cause. I have a hard time telling the difference between the 2001 Mbili sculpt and this new 2011 one, but she has a new date. In early 2016 I asked Carlyle Nuera about the sculpts and he says there is a difference in the sculpts. The 2011 is a new bigger playline head, while the 2001 is used for collector dolls and some Petite Fashionistas.

After asking Carlyle Nuera I got the confirmation Ava has the new playline Mbili sculpt.
