Madame Beatrice Alexander said “A beautiful doll is a joy forever,” and we at Toys Bulletin want to confirm how true that is, especially with the two collectible beauties we are looking at today. It was indeed a joy to open their pretty pink and blue boxes with matching pink tissue and find lovely 8” dolls created with love by Madame Alexander. White satin ribbon hold the fully articulated dolls in their boxes for a nice presentation, while the pink tags found on each of their small arms simply say, “Love is in the details.”
The “Pirouette in Purple Ballerina Doll” is an 8” articulated ballerina doll featuring a darling purple crepe leotard surrounded by a frilly lavender tutu. Glittery tights are accented with purple satin ballet shoes, and a matching ribbon holds her dark brown hair in a classic ponytail. Her lips and cheeks are a soft pink and her deep brown eyes open and close. She is truly a vision in purple.
This adorable doll would make a perfect gift for your favorite little ballerina. It might even be fun for a mother or grandmother to make this little dancer the start of an early collection for their daughter or granddaughter. The “Pirouette in Purple Ballerina Doll” is available on the Madame Alexander website for $59.95, and the recommended age for this collectible doll is 14 years old and up.
The “Dorothy, Wizard of Oz Doll” is equally impressive, dressed in the traditional “Dorothy” outfit, which includes a blue checked pinafore with white blouse, white lace, and trimmed petticoat and bloomers. Her sparkly ruby slippers have tiny red bows on top, and of course Dorothy is carrying a wicker basket complete with a cute fuzzy gray “Toto.” Dorothy’s face is framed with lots of dark brown hair, which is very soft to the touch, while her big brown eyes open and close. Her cheeks are perfectly rosy to match her bright red lips giving her a very sweet appearance. As an added bonus, she also has an extra pair of ruby slippers to carry over her arm.
There may be other Dorothy dolls on the market, but this one would excite a doll collector of any age.
The “Dorothy, Wizard of Oz Doll” is available on the Madame Alexander website for $84.95, again recommended for ages 14 years old and up.
