My Twinn Doll
My daughter's "My Twinn Doll" arrived Thursday. Let me just say, we are VERY pleased. The doll's hair looks and feels like real hair. The body is well made. And, above all, my daughter loves her! She does look like my daughter. From the hair color, to the freckles, and the eyebrows. You can tell that the face is hand painted with the best of care!
The doll is 23 inches tall. The eyes had a little film on them (possibly glue from them gluing the eyelashes on). This easily cleaned off with a baby wipe. The eyelashes even had a hint of red to them to match the strawberry blonde hair. There is an engraving on the back of the neck to show that it is an authentic My Twinn. It arrived in a really nice box and was "fastened" down with ribbons. No zip ties, screws, or plastic coated metal twist ties. It was delicately packaged, which I appreciated. It gave it a very special feel.
I would like to say a HUGE thanks to Beth over at Happily Domestic for hosting the My Twinn giveaway! I hope to buy some accessories and matching outfits for my twin girls that I now have running around under foot.
I also intend to sit down and sew some matching outfits myself because I think I can make matching clothes for less than purchasing them. The prices for the girls outfits can be pretty steep at $50. The doll outfits run about $29. I am just picky when it comes to buying/sizing my daughter online without some actual measurements to go by, especially at those kind of prices.
