|The dolls have their heads turned. Zelia's is turned almost too far, because it was hard to get a good look at her face.|
Zelia has dark brown eyes and red hair. That's a combination that you don't see very often. (I do. Every time I look in the mirror. But it's hard to find a doll with this combination.)
|The front of the doll's boxes says,"$1 of the purchase price from each doll is donated to World Vision, a humanitarian organization that helps girls like Zelia."|
Her box was sealed with clear tape.
Like all the Hearts for Hearts dolls, Zelia comes with her booklet,about her and where she lives, on a coffee farm in Brazil,
a comb,two extra ponytailers,
and a bracelet for her owner. The bracelet also works as a necklace for the doll.
Dell was happy to meet a new friend.
|Are you ever coming out of there?|
|She's a little bit of a ham.|
|It's ever so slightly thinly rooted. It still looks good, and no loose hair when it's combed, so it seems like it will maintain the hair that's there.The thinness doesn't show when her hair is in the side ponytail.|
The hair is soft and smooth. It's fun to comb: so silky! And doesn't tangle easily. It also isn't the type that will get frizzy with play. Both really good points for a play doll. (And good for me, because, as we know, I'm bad with hair.)
|This is how her hair looked right after I took her ponytail down.|
|But it combed out to be nice and silky.|
|It was very windy last weekend.|
Her earrings match with Dell's necklace.
|Slightly different colour though.|
|Good time to notice how similar, yet different, (Huh?), their head molds are. For one thing,Dell actually has a bigger head. They're both 14" tall.|
|Their clothes are actually able to be mixed and matched. Those shoes would definitely be interchangeable.|
Zelia's outfit is made up of a yellow satiny jacket,
|There are a couple of stitches holding the jacket to the shirt. They only have a knot at one end though, so they pull out easily. More smart methods! Kids can do this all on their own without tearing anything up.|
|Unlike just about all other acetate satiny clothes I have seen on dolls, this one is not stiff enough to stand up by itself. The jacket is soft and cozy.|
|The butterfly design matches her earrings.|
|Real back pockets.|
The Hearts for Hearts Girls are jointed at the neck, shoulders, and hips.
|If carefully balance they can stand on their own. Their shoes are slightly rounded on the bottom, which makes it more difficult.|
Their legs can too, but not as much as the arms.
|Zelia heard what a good time my Karito Kid, Ling had on the trampoline, so she wanted to try it out too.|
Their heads tilt a little bit too.
|It's a little bit baggy, but not too bad.|
|The length works actually.|
The Hearts For Hearts Girls are beautiful, informative, and a donation to a good cause. How can you lose?
Tomorrow is Skipper Saturday. This week for sure!
