Another beautiful 19" play doll from Bonnie & Pearl, a new British company designing dolls and dolls clothes for girls from age 8. This particular doll has light skin, which is a high quality, phthalate free vinyl with a matt appearance. Her long hair is blonde and is a good quality wig with a side parting which she wears with a little pink bow on a clip to one side. Her brown eyes are incredibly sparkly and open and close. Her limbs are articulated and her head can tilt and turn. I love the way she has a vinyl chest plate yet the rest of her body is cuddly and made from fabric.
All of the dolls arrive in the same outfit consisting of a pretty white cotton blouse and floral skirt complete with net petticoat. They also have matching floral shoes, a matching bag and a pair of simple white knickers. The dolls come packaged in a lovely colourful box which also contains a white bed covered with drawings all ready for colouring in together with a pillow.
The Bonnie & Pearl dolls are made in China to a very high standard. Bonnie & Pearl recommend the dolls for age 8 and over as the wigs make them unsuitable for younger girls.
She is a very pretty Doll,a bit pale, Blonde hair,sparkly brown eyes and pouty lips, The wig seems to be a good quality and neck can tilt sideways and up and down adding to the expressions of the Doll.She is well made sturdy,hair/wig is of good quality can be combed well.She comes in a beautiful 'bed- box' which has a pillow- guess little girls would find this exciting!! Nicely packed and arrived in couple of days after placing the order.I think girls aged 5 and up could well love this doll.Would recommend this one.
My daughter aged 9 absolutely loved this doll. And I can see why.
The body of this doll can be cleaned using a damp cloth with a little mild detergent if required. The body should not be immersed in water as this will rot the elastic holding the limbs onto the body.
The hair can be carefully washed using a mild shampoo taking care not to create tangles. Care should be taken to avoid getting the wig wet as this may upset the glue used to attach the wig to the head.
The dolls clothes can be hand washed using a mild detergent in warm water. Do not tumble dry but dry flat, smoothing out creases whilst damp. Iron using a cool iron if needed.
