Bella is a gorgeous, gorgeous baby doll! She is a Miaculti Real Effect baby that has been made using soft to the touch vinyl with a lovely skin like appearance. The sculpting and painting of her face makes her look so lifelike with blue fixed eyes, a little button nose, full pink cheeks, a cute little mouth and dimple in her chin. Her hair has been subtly painted. Bella's body is made from a cappuccino coloured velour which will resist getting dirty and be easy to clean with a cloth. Bella comes in a disposable nappy and is wearing an ivory velour jumper and shorts set with a pink velour sleeveless wrap over the top. The wrap is trimmed with soft pink ric rac type braid, has a few scattered pink flowers stitched on and ties with ivory ribbon on one side. On her head Bella is wearing a cute ivory velour hat with a turned up rim decorated with an appliqued flower and diamente. On her feet she wears a pair of pale pink velour boots with a bow on each toe, and a pair of white ribbed socks. She's absolutely gorgeous!
The Miaculti baby range are all reborn style baby dolls that have been made in Germany to an incredibly high standard. Due to her size and weight I would recommend Bella for a 4 or 5 year old girl at least, but she is safe from age 3.
This little baby is absolutely adorable. Her little face is so realistic that commonly people stop us to see her and think that she is real. She as a little bit of puffiness around her eyes, making her look ever so real. Her hands and feel have little wrinkles on them and her weighted little bottom make you want to pat her right when you pick her up. My daughter is 6 and loves to changer her diaper and change her clothes constantly. They go everywhere with us as a family and we couldn't be happier with the purchase. These dolls are definitely on the larger size. We have one for our 4 year old and while she love playing with her, she does not carry her around like my 8 year old does. However, these are for the long term and it will only be a matter of time before she is big enough to bring her everywhere also.
The body of this doll can be gently wiped with a soft damp cloth. Do not immerse in water. The clothes can be carefully handwashed in warm water using a mild detergent. Dry flat and do not tumble dry. Smooth out creases whilst damp and use a cool iron if required.
