Viviana is another exquisite baby doll from the Miaculti range. This beautiful doll has been lovingly made in Germany to an incredibly high standard. Her vinyl head and limbs are made from soft vinyl with the look of real baby skin and her brown inset eyes glisten. She has healthy rosy cheeks and a slightly red nose - and a nostril that is slightly wet looking too. (The detail is amazing). Her painted hair is brown and her body is made from skin tone soft flannel cleverly filled with fibre and pellets so that she is heavy in all the right places, just like a real baby, but cuddly too.
Viviana's dolls clothes are divine! She is wearing short sleeved rompers made from white cotton covered in pretty pink and yellow flowers. There is fine white lace trim around the neck and sleeve edges, smocking across the front, a tiny dusky rose satin bow in the middle of the yoke and elastic gathers just below the knee. The same fabric has been used to make a pretty brimmed hat with a tie beneath the chin, and the hat too is trimmed with white lace. Viviana's cardigan is totally gorgeous. It is made from white ribbed cotton jersey lined with white cotton and it has been shaped into a bolero style. All around the edges the cardigan is trimmed with white daisy braid and it's three tiny buttons up the front are covered in the floral fabric used for the rompers. So sweet! On her feet Viviana is wearing a pair of patterned white cotton ankle socks with white cotton shoes tied around the ankles with white satin ribbons. Finally, Viviana wears a newborn nappy, just like a real baby.
You can see from the photograph that my daughter Rosie is rather taken with Viviana. Now she can't decide if she would like Viviana or Sofia for her birthday! Decisions, decisions!
My daughter received Viviana (now called Lottie) for her 8th birthday today and this is probably going to be her last doll (sob). She was ecstatic when she opened the box. We've had several lovely dolls from Petalina over the years but wow! This one is the best. The quality, perfection of the mould and painting and attention to detail is incredible. This is closest to a real baby I've seen without going down the reborn route. This doll is perfect for an older girl who wants dolls to now look real. She has moist look lips and nostrils which is incredible and amazing newborn eyes. The clothes are beautiful and high quality. Petalina double packaged her and added a lovely tag and ribbon to her wrist plus a handwritten note in the packaging. A really great buy and service once again. Many thanks.
Doll arrived on time and beautifully packed, it is intented as a christmas present and is the third miaculti doll I have purchased! I have a new grandaughter so I am sure to buy more!
As ever, an excellent service from Bambolina. This is my second Miaculti baby and she is just gorgeous. The eyes are an incredible colour and she has such a wistful look. The doll is made to a very high standard as are the clothes she is wearing.
Beautiful doll. Excellent delivery.
