|Last year's Betsy in her original pj's. She's just dancing folks, She has two whole legs.|
Elsewhere I also got this great Bratz English telephone box. (It lights up too!)
And the tiny doll next to it I showed you the other day.
I also got a box full of Sunshine Family stuff, including the house, baby's room, truck, and the farm in it's original box.But the find of the day has to have been this American Girl Kirsten.
She's marked Pleasant Company, and wearing her original Meet outfit, minus her apron. Kirsten Larson was one of the first three original historical American Girl dolls that came out in 1986. She's supposed to be a pioneer girl from 1854, whose family settles in Minnesota after leaving their native Sweden.The character was archived in 2010.
This doll seems to have been played with very little. Her limbs are super tight. She's very clean, and her outfit only has a few spots on the back of her dress, which will probably wash out.
There is only one problem. She has silver eye in one eye.
I have a Samantha, and I would love to have an Emily, but I'll probably be letting Kirsten go, so her new owner can deal with her eye problem. I checked, and she can be sent to the American Girl hospital for new eyes for a total cost of $36, including shipping.Actually, the silver eye doesn't look bad, it just doesn't match the other one.
In general I'm not a huge fan of American Girl dolls, but I do like the historical costumes and the huggable feel of the bodies. I also love dolls with teeth! My main complaint about American Girl dolls is that they all look so much alike. (To me anyway. I know a lot of people can tell the difference between all the face molds.) If Kirsten had been an Emily, or even a Felicity, I would be a lot more excited right now!
See you tomorrow for another doll.
