When one of the children notices the "silver" in Mabel's mouth, she informs them that they are called braces. Dipper warns her not to do anything that could change the timeline, but she rebuffs him, as he had been doing exactly that throughout the entire day. Mabel proceeds to inform the children and their mother of numerous modern-day devices and policies, including the calculator, light-up shoes, the high-five and women's suffrage.
Each child's height varies with his or her age. They have hair in varying shades of brown, wear typical 1800's garb of dull colors; mainly greens, browns, and grays. The girls wear dresses or blouses and skirts, the boys wear shirts and pants, and the baby only wears a diaper.
