Starting in 1999 several badges familiar in the Worlds to Explore program began showing up with green borders and backings. This image from the 1999 GS catalog shows that all the Dabbler badges were given the same name during the Transition Period. By 2000, their names had changed to Dabbler Person, Dabbler Grid, Dabbler Rainbow, Dabbler Dove and Dabbler Pedestal. Several other popular badges turned up with green borders even though they would be dropped in 2001. This was to allow girls to complete and receive any earned badges from the old program.
