Doll-A-Day 2017 #151:Enchanted Giselle,Plus Prince Eric and Fashionista Ken

  Today's doll is one I have had on my list to feature for a while now. I had one already, but I found one in better condition in the dolls I found at Goodwill a few weeks ago. So, here is Giselle,from the movie "Enchanted".

This is her original dress. The flowers in her hair are drooping.

"Enchanted" was released by Disney in 2007.


The character 'Giselle',a fairy tale princess who is suddenly dropped into New York City,was played by Amy Adams.
Her hair is hard to comb because of the flowers.There's one in the hole on the side too.




The doll is a fair likeness of Amy Adams,but more cartoony and not as realistic as some of the other editions that were available.



She does look a bit more like the animated version of Giselle than the live action one.


Besides this version of Giselle there was Fairy Tale Wedding Giselle...

She has the more realistic Amy Adams face.Her bridal gown was in the bag of clothes I got at Goodwill, but I didn't see the doll anywhere.


...a Special Edition Giselle bride doll...

...and  the Renaissance Ball set with Giselle and Robert.

Robert was also available as a single doll,and I want his raincoat!

In spite of being a cartoonish Amy Adams,today's doll is actually quite popular with collectors.



The only male dolls I got in those Goodwill hauls were these two guys.


Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid,and Fashionista Ken.
  First, we'll see Eric.


He's missing his boots, obviously.

The copyright says 1968 because this is the Ken body from that era. It's been in use a LONG time.
 This body has those weird rear facing palms and legs that don't bend very much.


 He has a very cartoonish face.


His hair has molded detail.


He is wearing his uniform,which is all one piece and Velcros in the back.

The stitches that held his clothes in back are still there.
 He has pitiful epaulettes
.


There is a sash across the front.




And lots of fake buttons.


Giselle makes a good stand in for Ariel.


There was also this 2009 Fashionista Ken.


 
Ken has those great articulated arms the Fashionista Kens had for about half a minute,and his original shirt.

 His shoulders,elbows, and wrists are jointed, but unfortunately not his knees or ankles.

 
He has that same Ken face and blonde hair so many other Ken's have.


Tomorrow we're going to look at some more Disney dolls,the last of the dolls from the hauls.

  1. "Ken has those great articulated arms the Fashionista Kens had for about half a minute" LOL!

    Some of the prince dolls like Eric only came with fabric boots, so you may not be missing out on too much there.

    1. Yes, those fabric boots look stupid. Luckily they usually do 'real' boots now.There was a male doll there one day who was wearing some pretty cool boots,but I didn't want him for some reason.

    1. Thanks so much. If you get around to making a castle,large oatmeal containers can come in handy, and cardboard egg cartons can be torn into pieces and used to make a 'stone' surface. There are tutorials online for making a castle(There's a great one on Youtube for making a Frozen castle, but you could modify it.),and for doing the egg carton stone.
