The Marie Kruse Stylista dolls are a new range for 2012 by Kathe Kruse. They are 37cm all vinyl dolls with hand painted faces and kanekalon wigs. The idea of the dolls is that they will inspire a girl's creativity. Each doll comes with two pre sewn sheets of clothes that can be cut out along the red stitching lines, have the backing paper removed, and bobs your uncle, a simple piece of clothing is produced such as a dress, all in one, top, skirt, etc that can be used in any way at all to dress the dolls. Hopefully making more dolls clothes will be tempting and our girls will learn to sew without having to stick with convention.
Marie Kruse London comes in a simple shortie all in one in pale pink and white striped jersey. Her pretty hand painted eyes are green and her silky long hair with a fringe is red. Her pre-sewn sheets of clothes are plain scarlet jersey and a patterned striped jersey in shades of red, orange, pink, ivory and lime green. They will suit a red head better than the colours in the photo. The set also comes with a tube of gold glitter glue and two rhinestone motifs.

I am an adult collector. The doll is very well made, sturdy; the facial features are beautifully detailed, subtle coloring. The hair is very full, dense. The doll is well designed for play. I am very pleased with the doll. Petalina service was excellent. I live in the United States. Shipping was prompt. The package was carefully and delightfully wrapped. I am very pleased with my purchase.
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. Care should be taken to avoid getting the wig wet as this may upset the glue used to attach the wig to the head.
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.
