The Kaya Face Mold was the fifth face mold created for the American Girl Doll line; it was introduced in 2002.
The most prominent difference is that, unlike all other face molds, the mouth is closed and shows no teeth. This is due to a cultural taboo in Nimipuu (Nez Perce) culture of baring the teeth as it shows aggression. The mold is in many ways similar to the Josefina Mold, with a longer, less upturned nose and oval eyes; the nose is wider in the Kaya mold but not as wide as in the Addy Mold. The face is rounder than the Josefina mold and there is a slight dimple in the chin.
Since this is a unique face mold, she is stamped with "Pleasant Co 2002" on the back of her neck. Even the BeForever Kaya is still stamped with "Pleasant Co 2002."
