New for 2017, Happy Kidz Luisa by Gotz is really rather special. She has long, black, curly, rooted hair with a side parting and there is plenty of it too. She has the new hazel eyes with long eyelashes on the top eyelid and painted lashes on the lower lid. Her cheeks are rounded and slightly pink and her detailed lips are painted a pale coral with a slight shine. Her body is all vinyl with extra joints in her elbows and knees making her great fun to pose for older girls. Because of the hair we would recommend Luisa for girls from age 8 or 9 upwards.
Luisa is wearing a sparkly grey jersey dress with elbow length sleeves, with a co-ordinating grey skirt covered in sparkly silver large dots. Her large fur collar is lined with pale pink satin and tied with a grosgrain bow and this is not attached to the dress and can be added separately. Luisa's tights are a very soft textured knit and pale pink - they are lovely. Her shoes are ankle boots made from grey fleece with a zip up the front of each. The final touch is a pair of trendy black glasses.
There are lots of clothes available to fit Luisa by Gotz, but also Petalina Girl clothes all fit too. You can see everything that fits by clicking here.
There are so many things about Luisa that grabbed my attention when I first saw her. The new eye color and very dark wavy hair are a beautiful combination. I have loved this face sculpt from the beginning and am so happy with this doll. Her outfit is the most adorable!!! I wanted it when I first saw it on the Petalina 10th Anniversary doll in the giveaway. I am delighted Luisa is wearing it along with the little booties and the darling pale pink cable knit tights!!! Everything about her is of excellent quality, she is a treasure!!!! So beautiful in person, her photos cannot do her justice.
A truly beautiful high quality doll! My nine year old daughter was thrilled to receive her. A must for little girls with glasses everywhere.
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.
