Meet Anna, one of the new Happy Kidz dolls by Gotz. Anna is an all vinyl 50 cm play doll designed for girls from age 6 upwards and is fully articulated with extra joints in her elbows and knees making her highly poseable. I have to admit, I think the Gotz Happy Kidz dolls are the best multi-jointed dolls that we have Petalina.
Anna's face is really pretty with large almond shaped blue sparkling eyes with long eyelashes on the top lid and tiny painted lashes on the lower lid. Her eyebrows are also painted as are her pretty rosebud lips which are slightly shiny. Anna has a lovely healthy glow with rosy cheeks. Anna has very long rooted blonde hair with no fringe/bangs and a centre parting. We know that dolls with plaits have particularly long hair when the plaits are removed. Anna is a beautiful doll that young girls will simply adore.
Today Anna is taking part in her local pony club Gymkhana and is dressed in her dressage kit in preparation. I love her bright red jacket with two buttons on the front and red velvet on the collar and mock pocket flaps. She wears this over a simple short sleeved white jersey T shirt with a separate cravat. Anna's jodhpurs are white with ivory knee patches and her riding boots, with zips on the inside leg, are made from black mock leather. To complete her outfit Anna has a black riding hat complete with chinstrap which differs from the main photograph (see separate photo of the hat). She looks very smart indeed!
Anna has been designed by Gotz in Germany and made in their own factory in China to a very high standard. Due to the posing of this doll she is recommended for girls of age 6 and over. You will find lots of beautiful outfits by Gotz that will fit Anna and there are the lovely Gotz horses which Anna fits perfectly.
I am beyond delighted to add Happy Kidz Anna to my doll collection. She has lovely blue eyes and her facial expression is so endearing. Her ability to pose in so many ways is what sets her apart from other dolls. Petalina shipped her to me in the U.S.A. quite quickly. I can't say enough great things about her.
I purchased this doll for my pony mad daughter age 7 together with the horse. She honestly has not stopped playing with her. Haven't bought a Gotz doll before and we are very pleased with it.
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.
