New Holly Golightly from Integrity Toys

A new Integrity Toys line has been released, in conjunction with the re-release of the film Breakfast at Tiffany's by Paramount. The new stylized Holly Golightly doll is presented in a six different dressed dolls, all with slight variations of hair and eye color, in addition to facial screening. Extreme attention to detail and exact reproductions of the outfits (including lined clothing to prevent doll staining) went into this new line, which is available to pre-order from your favorite Integrity Toys dealer.

The dolls have a Poppy Parker-like body, which allows them to share clothes with Poppy, Misaki and the Dynamite Girls, only with a new "kitten heel" foot, without the articulated heel for better posing. All dolls stand 12" tall, with fully rooted hair and applied eyelashes, and include a stand and certificate of authenticity.

The doll sculpt is not supposed to be Audrey Hepburn, for you die-hard celebrity doll collectors out there. It is a Paramount-approved facial sculpt of Integrity's stylized version of Holly Golightly.

All photos are property of Integrity Toys, and I should state that they are promotional photos of the prototype dolls and subject to change. The dolls are scheduled to ship in the fourth quarter of this year, save one, which is yet to be announced--which should ship in September, the same month that the remastered Breakfast at Tiffany's film will be released. The dolls will be available for viewing at the Jet Set convention in October, as well.

First up is Fifth Avenue at 6 AM. Limited to 400, retail $125, the one thing that struck me most about this iconic look are the accessories. I'm a sucker for those. Check out the coffee cup and pearls! Because side seams are difficult to do in a small scale and lie flat, the dress has a back closure, but still maintains the original's  profile.

Crazy About Tiffany's is limited to 500 pieces, and retails at $125. This doll's hair is slightly lighter (with more rooted blonde). I'm most impressed by the embroidered miniature tassel fabric of her cocktail dress here. I can't wait to see it in person.

The next dressed doll is Holly as The Five and Ten, which follows the shoplifting scene in the movie. Her brown tweed dress is done in two pieces, and includes an orange overcoat, and cat mask. I love the purse included with this doll, limited to 350, retail $125.

How Do I Look? is the first of two gift sets presented in this collection. Retailing at $175, limited to 500, this set includes the white terrycloth wrap and the fringed black day dress. Additionally, two pairs of shoes, two amazing hats, two cigarette holders, and lots of jewelry is included in this gift set.

The next dressed doll is called A Girl I Know Named Holly. She retails for $89 and is limited to 500. She is shown in her sleep shirt and robe, plus her sleeping mask and tasseled ear plugs.

Finally, People Do Fall in Love is the last gift set, and it's limited to 300 pieces and retails $175. This adorable ponytailed doll (the hair does not have rooted ponytails, which will make it easier to remove them, if you are a restyler) shows Holly having to choose between money and true love. A tweed skirt, trench, headscarf, black blouse, sweater and black capris make up the fun pieces in this set. Very fun accessories as well: what impresses me most is the embroidered needlepoint luggage included in the set.

  1. Wow - these really blow away the Mattel versions! And with a little repaint magic, the doll could definitely look more like Audrey.

  2. I think the outfits look really well-made, too. The IT designers seemed to make the point during the presentation that this doll is not supposed to be Audrey Hepburn. But I'd agree with you, Dave--I think a little repainting... ;)

  3. These dolls are ugly.

  4. Thanks for your comment. Glad you had the guts to post it with your name.

  5. I think I've seen the Breakfast at Tiffany's movie exactly once...I'm more a fan of Audry than of the movie. At anyrate why doesn't the "I know a girl name Holly" have slippers?

    I also don't like the stands these and other IT girls come with, they seem very insecure and with the slightest bumb they fall off or do fancy flips not exactly to my liking. The stands need to have some memory wire cradle to frame the hip area of the doll and hold them secure as I have seen in some BJD dolls. Jenn
