Last year Maisie was so lucky to be sent a beautiful Gotz doll to review from the lovely people behind Petalina and this year she has been lucky enough to receive a Kidz ‘n’ Cats Grace doll to review! We were both literally blown away when we opened her as she is just stunning to look at! There’s quite a few photos of her in this post because I just couldn’t help myself.
Information from Petalina…
Grace is a stunning play doll, new to the Kidz ‘n’ Cats range for 2011 and is suitable for girls age 6 years and up. The Kidz ‘n’ Cats dolls by With Heart and Soul are made completely from phthalate free vinyl. What makes them really unique is that they have joints in their elbows and knees as well as all the usual places. These extra joints allow the dolls to be positioned in many natural looking positions. Grace has beautiful long blonde hair going all the way down her back past her bottom, with a side parting, beautiful brown eyes and long eyelashes. Her lips are painted a pale pink coral colour as are her little nails.
She has a tunic dress which is a dusty purple colour and has pink stripes and pink flowers printed on the fabric. The top does up with adjustable buttoned straps and the skirt of the tunic has several ruffled layers. The layers are different printed fabrics of pale pink, lilac, purple and white – really stunning. Under the tunic Grace has a 3/4 length sleeved top, white with pretty pink ditsy flowers and some pale lilac cropped leggings. On her feet Grace wears a lovely pair of pale lilac slip ons with pretty tie bows around the ankle. For underwear she has some matching vest and panties in white stockinette with tiny polka dots. To complete her outfit Grace has a lilac matching hairband ribbon tied in a bow on her hair.
Grace comes with her own little designer cat! The cat is made from soft grey velour fabric with a pink nose and ears, long whiskers and embroidered claws. The cat wears a matching dress to Grace with a couple of ruffled tiers on her skirt and a matching lilac bow in her hair. So cute!
Maisie really adores he new dolls and sits playing with her beautiful hair for hours. You can see from the photos just how gorgeous she is but she is incredible quality as well. She has joints at her elbows, knees, wrists and her little clothes are just beautiful! I really do find her mesmerising and I could take photos of her all day!
As you can see Maxwell wanted in on the modelling action lol and he adores the little cuddly cat that comes with Grace, I often find him sat stroking it much to his big sisters annoyance! Grace is going to be a very much-loved doll in our household along with Princess Hannah who already has a special place in Maisie’s heart I do tell Maisie that these are very special dolls and one day she will be able to hand it down to her little girl if she has one. She loves that idea… but I’m not ready for that just yet
Grace is available to buy on the Petalina website for £104.99, she is 46cm tall and is suitable for 6years +
