I had Josephina and Kit too, what about that?!
Also, as a proud owner of Molly, I *didn't* want Samantha, thankyouverymuch. Molly wore glasses like me, and she came from the 1940s and I was very much (still am) obsessed with World War II. (though I did grow up to have a spunky haircut, contacts (...still wear glasses) and a VERY dry attitude!) I think the writer of this article was just biased towards her Samantha doll!
