The snow is pretty much melted and the muddy gray grass is showing. But a couple of weeks ago when we had lots of snow, (or was it the week before?) I took some pictures of my Ai doll Lagrus. I have done several reviews of Ai dolls, so I'm not doing a detailed review of the packaging or fine details. If you're interested in that and want to see the other dolls, you can find their reviews here: Coreopsis , Leptospurmum ,Bee Balm , Phlox , Hyacinth
The Ai dolls in this series are all named after plants. Apparently lagrus looks like this:
|It has a removable capelet...|
|...and the hood has bunny ears!|
|They match the bunny ears on the front of the coat.|
|She has a really beautiful skin tone that I was finding hard to capture in these pictures. And her eyes are a really dark blue.|
|There are four different Ai head molds.There is a sleepy eye mold, a closed eye mold, and two open eye molds. One open eye mold is smiling and the other has a slightly turned down mouth.Lagrus has the open eye mold with a slightly turned down mouth, like Coreopsis |
She also came with a pink dress. I took the opportunity to photograph her recently in a less snowy setting, so she is comfortable without her coat on.
|Her little shoes even have tread on the bottoms. The straps velcro on the side.|
She also comes with a matching set of bunny ears on a head band.
|They match her coat.|
|Like all of the Ai dolls I have, her stringing is really tight, and it's hard to get her to hold some poses. Her head doesn't tilt much either.|
|She can stand on her own.|
I've been waiting to use these stairs. I think these pictures came out pretty good!
I think she looks pretty cute with Coreopsis' wig on too.
Bee Balm.) From what I have been able to find out, Ai dolls are larger than Pukipuki's, but smaller than Pukifees and Lati Yellows. The wigs are size 4-5, and the eyes are about 10mm.There are so many of the Ai dolls, and they're all cute. Tuesday Morning stores have had them sporadically over the last couple of years. It was quite a while back that I saw any there, but you never know. The price is great there too. For only $29.99 you can get a cute little ball jointed doll that is well made and comes with some neat accessories. The Ai dolls are plastic, not resin, but the quality of the plastic is really nice. It's beautifully smooth and most of the dolls have a lovely glowing skin tone.
See you soon!
