Happy Kidz Charlotte has a new outfit for 2017, and new beautiful hair too! She has extremely long curly black hair which is rooted with a side parting. Her fixed eyes are brown with long eyelashes on the top lid and painted lower lashes. Her mouth is slightly open and painted with a slightly shiny coral colour, and her cheeks are full and delicately pink. Charlotte has the multi jointed body of the Happy Kidz dolls that we have all grown to love, with extra joints in the elbows and knees for lots of fun posing. I have included a photograph of the back of Luisa's hair, as Charlotte's is the same - but the outfits are different so please don't be confused.
Charlotte's outfit is amazing! The bodice and top layer of the skirt are made from high quality viscose in black with printed red roses and leaves. The three quarter length sleeves are made from sparkly lace and the underskirts are red and black net with plenty of sparkly glitter all over. As underwear Charlotte is wearing a pair of simple white jersey briefs. On her feet she wears short black ankle boots, with added glitter too! Finally, she wears a black velvet hairband with a satin hat to decorate.
As always, the price, and the customer service from Cate at Petalina, were unsurpassed. Petalina is my first choice when I want a new doll. The Gotz Happy Kidz Charlotte is a wonderful doll. I like the weight of the vinyl and the sturdiness of the construction. These are the best vinyl jointed dolls I've seen. The sculpt is lovely, and captures different expressions when photographed from different vantages. The only quibble I have is the packaging. It has been a long time since I bought a Gotz doll, and I did not care for the way she was sewn into the box. Her hair is even sewn to the dress at one point. She has a ringlet which is tied at the top, tightly, and nearly impossible to undo without cutting a hair or two. The process of extricating poor Charlotte left us both disheveled. Having said that, I have to add that she is a really spectacular doll, and I'm very glad I chose her.
Another beautiful doll from Gotz and Petalina. I especially like the dark hair.
She is stunning and the outfit is gorgeous. Charlotte has an expression that beckoned, she is so lovely in person that she is gasp worthy. Her hair is amazing, thick and soft. She was love at first sight and I have confirmed, sheʻs got a presence that appeals to me. Beautiful doll that just pleases me to no end, captures something sweet and inquisitive that brings a smile. Thanks Cate!
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.
