Paris is one of a range of new fashion loving dolls for 2012. Designed by Kathe Kruse these dolls, with their clever clothes sets, will encourage little girls to create stylish outfits for their dolls to wear, and perhaps be inspired to make some clothes themselves afterwards.
Paris is 37cm tall and is made completely from phthalate free good quality vinyl. Her face has been handpainted with brown/hazel eyes and her long wavy dark brunette hair is a beautifully attached kanekalon wig. Kathe Kruse wigs are simply the best and just mean that the hair keeps it's style for much longer than rooted hair, and no the wig will not come off. Paris has very flexible joints (neck, shoulders and hips) so can be posed in lots of positions. Paris arrives in an inspiring box showing pictures of Marie Kruse at work with her scissors, with a mannequin and pins. Paris is wearing a simple pink and white striped all in one which can also be used in a budding fashionista's outfits.
Paris comes with two pre-sewn sheets of clothes to create. Each sheet consists of two layers of jersey with a sheet of backing paper and these are sewn together into a rectangle. In the rectangles sewn outlines of clothes can be seen. All that needs to be done is for a girl to cut along the red stitching and the white stitching remains in tact and holds the clothes together. The paper backing needs to be removed from the cut out items and the garment turned the right way round, and that's it. How the clothes should be worn is not obvious. It's all down to the imagination so dressing Paris will be lots of fun.
One of the pre sewn sheets is mid rose pink fine jersey with plenty of elastane. This sheet has a long T shirt or dress, a wide scoop necked top, a pair of trousers, a long tube for a sleeve or leg warmer and a wide band for a hair band or belt. The second pre-sewn sheet is white ribbed jersey with a beautiful ditsy floral print in pinks, reds and green. This sheet has a sleeveless all in one, a bag, and several tubes and ties. Once the outfits have been created the set includes some gold glitter glue and some rhinestone motifs to glue on and give the final flourish.

Beautiful doll. You won't be disappointed.
These dolls are gorgeous, the painted eyes are so pretty, really good quality doll. The outfits are easy to cut out and provide various combinations of outfits.
We purchased this doll for our 6 year old for Christmas with an additional set of fabrics. It is so beautiful. The doll moves easily to dress her and her hair can be brushed and plaited in any style. It's quality is excellent but I am a fan of all Kathe Kruse. The patterns were easily cut out with assistance by me and my little girl was in charge of dressing, decorating etc. Love this product and love Petalina. Thank you
Far more beautiful than the picture, lovely hair, which is standing up to being styled well, but the real treat are the clothes sets, my girls have needed help with the cutting but have enjoyed the paper tearing and turning through of each item, and then customizing them with stickers and glitter glue. we have discovered that items suitable for Sasha dolls are about the right size, so we added some shoes to her wardrobe. She is easy to dress and has a very lovely face, smaller than the Hannah dolls, she is a nice size to play with, while sometimes Hannah can be a bit big and awkward for little hands, Paris seems just right. We are very pleased with her . The only down side is because you cut out the outfits yourself, all the edges are unfinished, so what you gain in creative dressmaking fun, you lose in quality, but you can always add to her wardrobe with purchased clothes, and it really is fun doing it yourself!
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.
