good product let down by poor manufacture and inconsistency on its usp aim to represent lifelike proportions
on 14 August 2015
For an item that is marketed on the importance of dolls being more like real children, the completely out of proportion head is very contradictory and in my opinion undermines the selling point of the product. Apparently it needs to be alien proportions for 'hair play' but that's obviously nonsense since Barbie dolls have smaller heads and are one of the best selling dolls of all time and have provided hours of hair play fun for millions of children.
I do really like the outfit design, however the actual manufacturers/makers don't apply the same attention to detail that the designers aimed for. I purchased a number of outfits and there tends to be loose seams that make it difficult for even adults to dress and undress the doll without causing damage, let alone little kids. This particular item came with the velcro cat stick on for the dress not sewed on on one side and the inner lining for the jacket already starting to separate due to poor seams - it's a shame because the actual materials used are mostly high quality (excluding the very flimsy hat). It feels like there are aspirations for a good quality product that are then let down by taking short cuts/cost saving with the actual making of the item.
