For 2016 Gotz have introduced two new Jessica dolls and this is one of them. Jessica is a Gotz Precious Day doll and is Petalina's most popular play doll for girls from age 5 up to 8. This Jessica has no fringe and the other Jessica does have a fringe.
Gotz Precious Day Girls are 18 inch/46 cm play dolls with fabric bodies and phthalate free vinyl heads and limbs. Their eyes close and they have very long rooted hair which is the best sort of hair for young girls to play with. Their heads can be turned and their arms and legs are fully articulated so can be moved into many different positions. If necessary the dolls can even be washed in the washing machine (please see the information in washing instructions above).
Gotz Jessica has very long blonde hair with a side parting which reaches down to her waist. Jessica arrives wearing a satin covered hairband with a large bow attached made from white grosgrain ribbon covered in tiny black spots. Her outfit consists of a crisp white cotton shirt with short sleeves, and a contrasting pink facing at the neck. With this she wears a pair of pale pink cropped trousers with a black print showing fashion models. There is a plain pink section around the hem and this is trimmed with black satin ribbon. On her feet Jessica is wearing some sparkly silver trainers and she carries a hessian bag lined with pink fabric covered in black spots and with a pretty bow on the outside together with some silvery pom-poms. I think Jessica has a very grown up and fashionable look which many girls will love.
Gotz make lots of dolls clothes that fit Jessica - just look for Gotz dolls clothes that are designed to fit 45 to 50 cm dolls. Petalina Girl dolls clothes have also been designed to fit the Precious Day dolls and you can find these dolls clothes here.
Other useful items that can be purchased to go with Jessica includes the Gotz wire hairbrush which helps to prevent the buildup of static in the doll's hair which causes tangling and I also love the Gotz salon chair. Because Jessica wears trousers she doesn't have any knickers on so you may want to buy some underwear such as the Petalina Two Pack of Pretty Knickers and also some pyjamas or a nightdress would be gratefully received by Jessica's recipient.
This doll is absolutely beautiful! We already had Elizabeth, so knew what to expect. It is a very high quality doll with an attractive face, lovely hair and is perfect for our newly-five-year-old girl. The packaging was beautiful and the service perfect. Thank you very much for adding many smiles to our daughter's special day!
Granddaughter delighted with her new doll
This doll can be washed in the machine. The hair should be tied into bunches or a pony tail to avoid tangling, and the whole doll placed into a tied pillow case or lingerie bag. This can then be washed in the machine at 30’C on a delicate or hand wash cycle using a mild detergent. Do not tumble dry but remove from the piillow case and dry the doll in a warm place lying face down, making sure that the hair is correctly styled before doing so.
The dolls clothes can be hand washed using a mild detergent in luke warm water. Do not tumble dry but dry flat, smoothing out creases whilst damp. Iron using a cool iron if needed.
