Finouche Melanie is one of the 2016 collection of dolls by Petitcollin. She has been designed by Sylvia Natterer for children from age 5 and over to play with. Melanie is made entirely from phthalate free vinyl with well articulated limbs so that she can be posed in endless positions - great for lots of fun playing. She has brown rooted hair with a fringe and centre parting and a beautifully painted face with brown eyes, blushing cheeks, freckles and slightly shiny coral lips. Melanie is wearing a new floral cotton dress for 2017 which is covered in tiny flowers with a few butterflies on a lilac background. The sleeves and trim around the hem are made from plain cotton in a pale blue-grey, and the hem has co-ordinating organza ribbon trim. The jacket and shoes are both pale pink. A very beautiful combination!
Petalina is a wonderful shop, and Melanie is a gorgeous girl, so well made!
Melanie is a lovely doll. She is a little shy, but is slowly getting to know the others who have been here awhile. Petalina's did the usual excellent job of packing and shipping. I will buy from them again.
Melanie is a pretty doll with lovely thick hair her face has a few freckles and blushed cheeks and coral lips. Her outfit is made very well and suits her complexion. Her head can be posed in several poses. She came beautifully packed with pink tissue and Cate signature pink ribbon. Tracking was available with a text giving you date and an hour window when your parcel will be delivered. You can also change your delivery date. I highly recommend this doll. Thank you Cate .
I am so thrilled to add this gorgeous doll to my collection. Can't wait for the newest Petitcollin dolls to become available. Petalina is a great place to shop for dolls. Fast delivery, great prices and wonderful customer service. I highly recommend them for all of your doll needs.
Gorgeous doll and five star service from Petalina
I love this doll. She is absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait for the latest dolls to be released! I am definitely going to be adding to my collection.
This really is a beautiful doll. She has long hair, which brushes well and is curled at the ends. Her clothes are really detailed - with one piece underwear, covered by a dress, short jacket and shoes. She moves well - her arms and legs move and you can angle her head. She is much beloved by my nine year old daughter and has a soft, gentle expression. She has quickly become one of her favourite dolls and is now named Violette, rather than Melanie!
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.
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.
