Happy Kidz Sophie is every little ballerinas dream doll. She is an all vinyl 50cm play doll with lots of joints making her very posable - so a perfect ballerina doll! As well as the usual five joints at the shoulders, hips and neck, these dolls all have extra joints in their elbows and knees which gives the dolls a more natural appearance.
Sophie has very long brown rooted hair which she wears in in a side parting and no fringe. Her large acrylic inset eyes are brown with real lashes on the top lid and painted lashes below. She has rounded rosy cheeks, painted glossy pink lips and painted eyebrows. Her expression is a little quizzical and contemplative . Her body is modelled on that of a 10 or 11 year old girl with slightly wider hips and shoulders and a waist.
Sophie is wearing a beautiful ballerina outfit. A pink short sleeved leotard, a pale pink wrap, a gorgeous netted tutu, tights, pink knitted leg warmers and realitstic pink ballet shoes.
Happy Kidz Sophie would make a perfect gift for a girl from the age of 5 but also because of her more mature body shape and realism, older girls would enjoy her company too.

The girls loves this doll. Gotz dolls are the best and it is possible to buy different outfits for them.
Sophie is a beautiful doll. Excellent customer service, I will be back for more dolls! Thank you!
Ordered this doll on February 6th, received a delivery notice on February 8th, and it arrived at my front door on February 19th. It took a little longer because it was shipping overseas to America, but with lower shipping costs than other competitors, it's understandable. The Sophie doll is my very first jointed doll and I couldn't be more pleased with her overall quality. From the mesmerizing eyes to the almost subtle smile, she has such a cute face. And the fact that she can hold so many poses that the average doll cannot leaves room for plenty of possibilities in play. Am holding onto this doll for now, but may pass it on to my daughter later on when she's a little older. And communicating with Cate on e-mail was a breeze even though we are in different countries and time zones. She was very prompt in responding to my inquiries. Will definitely be keeping Petalina on my radar for future purchases.
Gorgeous doll, excellent customer service, Thank you
Sophie was a Christmas present for my 7 year old daughter, needless to say she is completely in love with her. Lots of play value to be had, the Gotz dolls are a perfect move up from the "baby" dolls for older girls, a really lovely gift. Super, speedy delivery and well packed, overall a great service from Petalina at a very busy time of year. Thank you.
Absolutely gorgeous doll, excellent customer service, so pleased that you were able to send this all the way to Australia, my daughter will be so thrilled on Christmas morning thank you!
Petalina is wonderful! Their customer service is outstanding. Cate is very friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about all of the dolls. It's especially great for customers like me, who can't get many of these dolls in the United States. It was also a nice touch to see Pippa's note on the packing slip. Everything was packaged and protected very well all the way to the U.S. As for Gotz Sophie, I think she speaks for herself. She is so beautiful! I love her sweet face. She can be posed naturally in many ways because of her extra joints, which is just perfect for ballet poses. The high quality of all the Gotz dolls and their clothing are beyond compare. I'm already deciding which Gotz doll I want to purchase next :)
I bought this doll to put away for my daughter when she is a bit older. Petalina went the extra mile which is such a nice change! Thank you for your help
My 8 yr old daughter, a tom boy actually, is infatuated with a doll for the first time!
The most beautiful doll a little girl could have. Petalina's service and communication can be rated only as excellent.
Received in perfect condition to our grand-daughter's full satisfaction. Very nice doll.
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.
