In the meantime, I thought I'd give a "heads up" to my fellow Hearts For Hearts Girls collectors out there. I know we're always looking for more clothing ideas for the dolls, right?
Last week, my mom found a Melissa and Doug "Mine to Love" doll on sale for $10 at TJ Maxx. She thought the doll looked just about the same size as the Hearts for Hearts Girls, so she bought it just in case.
This is the Larissa Princess doll.
Other views of the box:
I'm not a real fan of this doll's face, but her dress and tiara are really cute. (Interestingly enough, my girls thought this doll was adorable. I guess it's all a matter of personal preference.) ;)
As you can see, though, she's just about the same size as a Hearts For Hearts Girls doll, with slightly different proportions.
The two dolls from the back.
Her dress fits the Hearts For Hearts Girls perfectly! And $10 for a doll dress, tiara, and shoes is not a bad price. ;)
The fabric of the dress is durable and looks nice.
Interestingly enough, the sleeves are actually easier to get over the Hearts For Hearts Girls hands than they were over the hands of the doll the dress was made for! ;)
The shoes are a little big and therefore a little silly looking, but they stay on.
Hmm, that's not a very ladylike way to sit, Lauryce! ;)
After I took these pictures, I passed the dress on to the girls to play with. Middle Gal tried it on her Nahji doll, and I thought it looked great with her coloring. :)
So if any of you have Hearts For Hearts Girls dolls in need of other outfits and have a TJ Maxx close by, you might want to check it out. According to my mom, there was also a doll in a pink princess dress and one in a ballerina tutu.
Happy shopping! :) I'll be back soon with a mini DAC review. Here are some pics to tide you over:
