Dear New York Doll Collectors and to all doll collectors around the country! Happy Easter, Happy Bunny Day, Happy Egg Day and Happy Doll Day. When we think of Easter, don’t we think of pastel colors, pinks, blues, greens, yellows in delightful soft, but bright hues? Just like those of your dyed Easter eggs. Well, there are other things that have lovely shades of pastel colors, for one of many special holidays. Madame Alexander has introduced a sweet and colorful doll collection. Madame Alexander has nine cute, 7 inch dolls (petite to the 12 inch dolls, we normally see) in a collection called the 7 inch Princess Play Dolls.
What makes these dolls so amazing, is that they each have their own unique characterizations, they are bendable, and they are small enough to be put into your purse or in your pocket. The dolls we want to specifically focus on, are Fairy Dust Storybook Play Doll and Starry Princess Storybook Play Doll. Let’s take a closer look at the two of them.
We first have our adorable Fairy Dust, the 7 inch pocket-size storybook play doll, dressed in a blue top, which is dusted with a glittered design. It is a goddess type top, with the fabric covering one shoulder, and the other shoulder is left bare. Her light green petal skirt, made from a felt like fabric, is layered with a lacy light blue tulle material. The tulle fabric of the skirt, is gathered together in a tie. Incidentally, this tie, is the same color of the tie, used on her blue top. Fairy Dust, is also wearing green sandals, that match her felted petal skirt. Her sandals are adorned with one single snow white pom pom. Speaking of pom poms, this is the hair style, that was chosen for Fairy Dust. Her hair has been twisted into, two cute pom poms on each side of her pretty little head. And finally, Fairy Dust, possesses the will to fly with her splendid delicate wings, behind her back. Dusted with a glitter design, the wings are attached to her equally splendid top. Adorable indeed.
Next we have our darling, Starry Princess, the 7 inch pocket-size storybook play doll, dressed in a light green iridescent dress, with a hem in shapes of triangles. On the top of the dress, is a beautifully embroidered design, of deep purple knots, almost similar to those of the Celtic or Irish knots you see on the costumes of the traditional Irish step dancers. In between the delicate knots, are glistening, woven threads, that almost give a feeling of a moving river of water. Beneath Starry Princess’s triangle hem dress, is a full flair skirt of tulle fabric, adorned with dots of blue glitter that sparkle. We can gather that this is the starry night of stars. It certainly brings one’s eyes to this fetching, and light catching, glittery skirt. Her purple ballet shoes, match the deep purple knots, that are designed into the top of her dress. And finally our Starry Princess, wears a silver crown, on her adorable head of tresses styled into thick twists and curls. As we look upon her, our eyes may sparkle with the light of her cuteness and design.
These Madame Alexander dolls go for the price of $16.95 each. As they are nine in the collection, doll collectors have the chance to choose the dolls they love, or collect them all. Happy Easter doll collectors!!
