Meet Hannah Loves Hairstyling by Gotz, a new 50 cm play doll for 2014 by Gotz. Hannah dolls are one of my favourite dolls at Petalina and they have been for some time due to the beautiful sculpting of the dolls face, the hands, the legs and feet. One of Hannah's knees is slightly bent and both her elbows are very slightly softened which gives her a very natural appearance and makes her very easy to stand. Hannah is recommended for girls from age 5 upwards.
Hannah has a very pretty face with slightly rounded cheeks, very detailed lips and large blue fixed acrylic glass eyes with long eyelashes on the top eyelids and painted lashes on the bottom eyelids. Her blonde hair is rooted with a side parting and is extremely long, making Hannah a really good doll for lots of hair styling play.
Hannah's outfit is beautiful and very different to Gotz' usual style. She is wearing a coral coloured finely knitted loose fitting jumper with long sleeves and a large cowl neck collar. Over this she is wearing a red quilted lined waistcoat with popper fastening at the neck and an elasticated red belt with a silver buckle. Hannah is also wearing a pair of dark denim jeans and some trendy silver glitter plimsolls.
What makes this set really special are all the accessories that come with it. There is a cape to protect Hannah's clothes while she is having her hair done, there are two large rollers and four small rollers. Hannah's hair curls very easily without water and heat, you just have to leave the rollers in overnight. There is also a battery operated hairdryer (which requires batteries), a round brush, two highly decorated clips with red and purple bows and a gorgeous scrunchie hair tie covered in multicoloured discs - very pretty. And of course the doll comes with a free DVD showing how to create several hairstyles.
There are so many accessories that can be purchased to go with Hannah, including the new salon chair, so that Hannah becomes an excellent gift that can be added to over the years to come. After all, it is all the outfits and accessories that make doll play so much fun.
We are huge 'Hannah' fans and as pretty as they are in pictures they are always prettier in person. This lovely Hannah has gorgeous long hair to style and braid. We love our new Hannah with the side part and no fringe as much as the ones with fringe. Her hair styling accessories are a hit and sized just for her. Hannah's colorful outfit is quite posh, down to her silver sparkle sneakers! As always with Gotz, everything is quality. I must give thanks to Cate and her Petalina staff for the extra effort and time they always give my orders, assuring everything is perfect!
I bought the Gotz Hannah Loves Hair Styling Doll for my granddaughter. The specifications from her mum were "a doll with long hair". I went to all the local shops and then did research online. Petalina had the best website and best selection with really helpful tips on choosing a doll, i.e. soft body vs vinyl body etc. Hannah is very beautiful, with long rooted hair. The hairdressing gadgets are a bonus. My order was delivered sooner than expected, so I was impressed. Birthday is still coming up, but you will hear the scream of excitement all the way over in the UK from Australia when she unwraps this fantastic gift. P.S. I am making a little story book with photos of Hannah and her new mum.
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.
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.
