I'm surprisingly delighted with the announcement of the latest Poppy Parker Fashion Teen line. These 16" dolls from Integity Toys, designed primarily by David Buttry, are adorable. The inspiration behind this collection is: Paris on a grand scale!
Sunny Splash is a basic dressed doll, limited to 300, for $120. She will be arriving soon--the second week of October (hooray!). She has lavender eyes with rooted lashes, and brown rooted hair in a side wrapped ponytail. Her two-piece bathing suit is adorable--with ruffles and a high-waisted bottom. And her accessories are fabulous: a beach bag, hat, sun glasses, beaded sandals, beaded bracelets and earrings (because Poppy doesn't go anywhere not decked in jewelry--that's why we love her!), and a towel. The color scheme is super cute!
Fashionably Suited is also limited to 300, $140, and will also be arriving in the second week of October. She has light ash rooted brown hair and brown eyes with applied lashes. I adore this outfit! It's a pink tweed two-piece tailored suit, with a navy blue camisole and a matching scarf. She's also wearing navy hose, gloves, hat, and pumps. Her statement necklace, bracelet and understated earrings keep her from looking too overdone. Of course, no outfit is complete without the perfect purse--which looks like a tiny Chanel chain purse.
Ma Chérie is limited to 300, retails for $140, and will be arriving the second week of October as well. This look reminds me a little of Foto Fab, only in a taller size. She has strawberry blonde hair in a braided updo, and green eyes with applied lashes. Her outfit is a satin cocktail dress with black lace overlay, belted at the waist with a bow. Finishing touches include gloves (not shown), drop earrings, a bracelet, clutch, veil, and t-strap shoes.
Last but not least, Floating Dream retails for $140, is limited to 300, and is arriving the second week of October. Poppy has her platinum hair styled in a 1960s era partial updo, with blue eye and applied lashes. This big event gown has a fitted corset style bodice and a ball gown skirt with multiple layers. Her jewelry is understated--pearl drop earrings and an unusual pearl necklace and matching bracelet. She completes her look with a clutch and matching pumps.
I'd like to note that these dolls have the same size body as Tulabelle. They are slightly smaller than FR:16 dolls. And I've found that the fashions fit Fairyland Chicline dolls rather perfectly. I am thrilled with this release!
