Paola Reina are based in Alicante in Spain and make wonderful great quality dolls by hand in their factory. All the materials are sourced from within Europe. The Blanditas range means 'The Squishies' which is because they have soft cuddly bodies with vinyl heads and limbs. They have a subtle vanilla scent which I love and cute facial expressions. Virgi is 36cm tall and has more friends in the collection as well as outfits. She also fits many of the Ma Corolle items as they are roughly the same size and shape. She is the perfect size and shape doll for a first proper doll for a 3 or 4 year old to dress as she can still be cuddled in bed but is also more grown up.
Virgi has long thick, glossy rooted brunette hair with stunning brown eyes which close and have long eyelashes. In her hair is a bow clip that matches the strap on her shoulder bag which is also included. Virgi wears a casual outfit of a white short sleeved top with patterned trims. Around her neck is a pink scarf with pom pom edging. Under this are blue denim shorts and blue and white trainers which lace up. Also included is a pink heart hairbrush.
What a beautiful doll! We have bought her for our granddaughter's 5th birthday in August. She is really into hair styling at the moment, and she will be thrilled when she sees her new baby's BEAUTIFUL hair! You never fail to please!! Thank you Cate!!
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.
