Disney Articulated Body Pt. 1
"I'm here and I'm fabulous!"
July 4th Disney had a sale on their Classic Collection. 2 for $22 plus free UPS shipping. I had never seen the dolls in person, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I bought four total dolls. Two of Princess Tiana, and two of Pocahontas.
The dress is cute enough that it can be used as a ballroom dress.
This is Tiana out of her box. She comes with green painted on panties. The first thing I noticed was the high quality body. No flimsy joints like some of the fashionista bodies. She came with the exact same articulation as the other dolls. Yay! She has nice hands unlike the LIV dolls. (That comment if for you DBG.)
She has articulated ankles...
that can rotate all the way around. Not sure why you would need to do that, but it's possible.
Here she is sporting a pair of Barbie high heels.
Her feet are small enough to fit Barbie shoes. This is something the LIV bodies can't do.
So let's talk height. With heels on, the Disney doll is almost the same height as the Barbie doll.
Of course, with her flat feet, she is a tad shorter, which makes perfect sense. She will probably be a great height for the Ken sized doll. In Part II, I will compare her height to a LIV doll, too.
She seems to be a really good color match for Kara, BB 3.0 #8 and some of the Christie's. She is not a good color match for the darker skin toned dolls. Oh goodness, I only bought two of these bodies and already I have three dolls waiting in line. BB 3.0 will definitely get one.
I didn't open my Pocahontas doll yet, but it seems like she would be a perfect body match for S.I.S. Marisa.
I will continue the body review another day, where I will actually make a body swap, and continue comparing this body with the fashionista and the LIV body.
