After some thinking, I decided to put all these kid on the same page as they are still growing in numbers. We don't get many of these sets to Sweden and the ones that do find their way here is way too expensive to buy just for a kid. These dolls have one thing in common, they are all made with the 2004 Kelly body, or a variation thereof. Their faces are similar with one exception (so far) but they have a big variation of molded hairdos. Seems they get a new look for every new set. Wouldn't it be better to give them hair and set that? Well, I guess a ready made plastic do is cheaper. The kids are usually sold along with a Barbie in set, in a career type of set, like I Can Be... They seem to be stamped under their chin and not in the neck.
In 2020/2021 a new way of making these dolls surfaced. The dolls have "wigs" instead of the hair molded into the head. This also makes it possible to hide the mold seam under the "hair". Much better than the ugly seam under the chin. 

I also added the Babysitters INC. kids here as they are made with the same body type, Kelly InKarnations.

It took me a while to get my hands on a doll with this sculpt, but eventually I managed to land a siblings set from the Babysitters Inc. series where the bigger Kelly sized sister was made with it. The sculpt is made with a big happy, toothy smile and a bob cut hairdo.

Mattel changed the way of the production of these heads. We saw this in a Fashionistas Ken last year, but now in the kids too. The seam is probably put under a "wig" today, to not be as visible and pure ugly as it is under the chin. This also means the hair is an extra piece, sort of a wig. As I would need a really bad doll to look into, I can't tell how this is done, but probably the hair is glued to the top of the head. Stamp is the same as before, 2015.

These kids have the ugliest chins I have ever seen. The blonde looks like she has more chins than one. Not a very nice job at all. *shudder* The blonde has a slightly open mouth, while the latina's mouth is well closed. Can be a painting illusion (and I am not talking about the misplaced white teeth part on blondie).
