Baby Elsa will not disappoint. She is the largest baby doll we have at Petalina at 52cm long, and is the size of a newborn baby. Plus she feels heavy and real and can wear actual baby clothes. So a really good doll if you would like to recycle your box of baby clothes. She is intended for children from the age of 3 but some tiny children may find her too heavy. Great for a 5 or 6 year old with a new little sister arriving.
Elsa has a soft cuddly body made from velvety skin tone velour which has been filled with polyester fibre and some PE pellets in her bottom to add weight. She feels lovely to hold. Her head and limbs are made from phthalate free vinyl which is soft to the touch. Her face is so real looking with blue/green closing eyes with long lashes, rounded healthy cheeks and detailed moulding of her little nose and mouth. Her hair is moulded showing very fine lines all over her head with some light painting in mid brown.
Elsa's dolls clothes consist of a pale pink jersey dress with pointelle stripes. The sleeves are white jersey and look like a T shirt beneath but they are part of the dress. The dress has a peter pan style collar made from a pretty little floral print in shades of pink and taupe, and the same floral fabric has been used to trim the arms holes, around the hem as well as to make a sweet little hat with ties beneath the chin. There is also a little fabric badge on the bodice showing an elephant and a palm tree. Elsa also wears a pair of pale pink ribbed jersey shorts and a pair of little white ribbed socks.
Elsa has been made by Schildkrot totally in Germany. Her price may seem high but you get a great deal of gorgeous cuddly baby for your money which hasn't travelled half way around the world. Schildkrot dolls really are excellent quality and they have no functions at all so encourage imaginative and traditional doll play.
The first picture is supplied but the remaining pictures are ones that I have taken myself so that you can see the quality of the doll and clothes, and just how pretty she is without her hat.
An amazing doll, truly beautiful and exceptionally well made, I love the size of the doll as she fits baby clothes. Excellent service from Petalina. Thank you.
Beautiful doll. I bought it for my great granddaughter who I'm sure will love her. She will have so much fun dressing her. She is worth every penny.
Lovely doll. Looks like a doll and not a real baby which is what we love about her. My three year old was very happy with her. She is quite heavy so not ideal for small children probably a little too heavy but will get lots of use out of her. She also fits into first size baby clothes so had lots of fun dressing her. Nice to cuddle as she is soft bodied. Good quality and although quite expensive. We think she is worth it!
This doll can hand washed in luke warm water using woolite. It is best to tie up any hair to prevent tangling. Air dry the doll in a warm place with the hair in the desired style. The dolls clothes can also be handwashed. They should be dried flat and not tumble dried, smoothing out creases whilst damp. A cool iron can be used if required.
