|Second design||2000||Character Cards; Dancin' Bubs; The Reddest Radish; Yearbook Character Page (in photo)||She looks more realistic, has less shading and a thinner head. Her mouth is slightly more realistic. Her dress is darker and has a gradient in the back, her bells are larger and she has longer, darker, and curlier hair. Also, she has a lighter skin color.|

The bells on her dress are much larger and are a lighter shade of gold. Her dress is smaller and once again has its gradient at the back while her hairtie is larger, her head shape is more rounded, and her outline is thicker. Her right eye is now the larger of the two.|
