There have been a couple of alterations to this doll. Her original torso was cut in half into a removable front plate by a previous owner, also the girly parts were removed, presumably to make her more cuddly. Then her next owner attached a back plate not original to the kit to the front plate to complete the torso again. The back plate part is not painted, but serves the purpose of holding the tummy plate in place. From the front this addition is not noticeable or bothersome.
However, if you want her to be more cuddly this can simply be separated again with a craft knife. Also, the inside of the mouth has been removed from the inside, and dark red felt placed to make her mouth deeper. It actually looks quite realistic in person, and allows her to take a full pacifier. Because of the way the mouth was sculpted on this particular baby, it was cut in a way that there are no stressed edges, so it is not in danger of splitting.
Esme will come home with the outfit she is wearing in her photos, another cute outfit, pacifier, extra diaper, and a soft blanket to keep her cozy on her journey home. I do not have her coa.
