Well, last week, I joined the world of realistic looking doll owners. I ordered the Russian baby doll from "Preciousbabydolls.com" and she just arrived! Wow! I am very impressed with the quality. She is so beautiful, it was almost like looking at my sweet baby girl's little face again. Her eyes are amazing (our little girl has auburn hair and green eyes too) and her fingers and toes are so cute. But what I like best about this doll is the way the body is shaped and weighted so that she can sit up without falling over. I purchased the book and kitten that go with her and enjoyed them too.
If anyone is interested, the doll and accessories are still on sale (10% off) for the rest of September. The price was discounted as soon as I placed the order. Very professional and fast shipping. I highly recommend this doll. (And, no, I am not associated with the "Preciousbabydolls.com" company in any way.) I had my eye on this doll for a long time, but the sale price prompted me to go ahead and order. I'm so glad I did!
Isn't she just the cutest [Russian] doll you've ever seen?
"Katya Irina is a precious baby from Russia that has beautiful auburn hair and green eyes. She is waiting for you to love and take her home. She comes dressed in a darling ethnic costume of her country. Her outfit consists of a white blouse with a red border at the collar and a beautiful embroidered edging on the arms. The blouse is gathered at sleeves. The dress is a bright red color that has the same embroidery along the top, bottom, middle and straps. The dress is lined and both have velcro closures. Katya also comes with little white booties with lace around the top and a diaper."
A "Refer a Friend" flyer was included in the box that said I can receive a check for $5.00 if a friend emails the company before placing their order telling them that I referred them. Trust me, I would not recommend something that I didn't believe in whole-heartily just to get $5.00. But if you do decide to order and would like tell the company owner (an adoptive mom BTW) that you saw the doll here, I will donate the $5.00 to our Little Tsarina's orphanage.
