The inside is covered by a clear plastic that just lifts out.
|Her hat is stuffed, lined with fabric to match her dress, and closes in front with Velcro.|
Once the ribbons are untied she lifts out. As with the other Ai dolls, her arms are covered in plastic.
|...which easily slips off.|
|She has red and white gingham undies!|
|They even have tread on the bottoms.(Although you can't see it here. Keep going.)|
Although it looks layered, her dress is one piece and closes in the back with Velcro.
Again, as usual with Ai dolls, she can't really hold her giant accessory.
|She has to sit and hold it on her lap.(Notice the tread on the shoes.Finally!)|
The Ai dolls all seem to have very tight stringing.They can do various poses with their hands, but have trouble bringing them in close to, for example, hold their fat accessories,or touch their face. Other than holding that pillow,Phlox seems a little better at it than my others.
And she can use her hands to explore the world.
|Look. The last of the sweet peas.|
|I don't think anybody ever told her that it's not polite to point.|
And then, of course, you have to relax, because exploring the world is tiring.(I sound like Eloise.)
And then you're ready to get up and do more stuff...
|I think the tiny Fisher Price lawn mower goes to the chubby Little People.|
Phlox, like all the Ai dolls has a removeable wig, held on by Velcro strips on her head and her wig. Her wig, unlike,Hyacinth's, the Ai doll I reviewed yesterday, is nice and tight. Due to this, and the tiny curls on the back of her head...
...and my hair-doing disability, I'm not even going to remove her wig. So I'm showing you Coreopsis's head.
|The joint is covered by clear plastic.|
|The head is held closed by a set of strong magnets. The metal ring holds the elastic that strings the doll together. The pointy thing in the middle is the device that holds the eyes. Uh...yeah. Good luck with that...|
Phlox has bright blue eyes.
|The eyes have beautiful detail.|
Phlox has a different head mold from any of my other Ai dolls.
She has an 'open eye mold'. But she has almost a smiling face, where as my other 'open eye' Ai dolls, Leptospurmum and Coreopsis, have a pouty face.
|Leptospurmum. He was reviewed back around March.|
|Coreopsis. He was reviewed this summer.|
|...like yesterday's Hyacinth...|
|...like Bee Balm, who I reviewed around March too.|
See you tomorrow for Skipper Saturday.
