Hey Gang, I’m back! I have gotten a good rest and I am ready to do a post or two. So while I was away, I read a few blogs but didn’t comment. I guess I can do that now. Not doing it then helped keep it stress free for me. I did a little shopping and just play with my dolls. It helped me worked out some stories and characters and I started organizing… again!
So while out and about I came across this doll! I will post picture of the other dolls that where there but for now here is Kenya!
I pick this one because of the suit and her complexion! You have to go for a suit when you see one. The box says Kenya Riviera. There a few others model there. I may go back if they go down in price. This one was 20.00.
Close-up on the face.
She has a really nice suite and top. It is better quality than most clone items found out there. I reminds me of the Janay and Jordon fashion when they first came out. Her had band is not circular and it is tied together in behind her head. It is long enough and wide enough to be warn as a shawl.
She has articulated arms, hand and knees. This would make her a great donor body but the neck knob is hard plastic and doesn’t have the flexibility of Barbie or Liv Dolls. The neck knob snapped when I tried to remove the head.
Ok, so here she is side by side with Princess of South Africa on A basic MM body. You will note that her had is much larger than Barbie. It is about My Scene size.
Her necklace is pretty nice. Her earrings and purchase are more like that of clone dolls.Warning Nude Dolls Below!
Here she is compared to other darker complexion dolls.
She is more busty than most barbies. Here is the back of the box.
You never know what the male doll will be like until you see him in person. The Flava male doll's heads were a different size than the girl dolls. Even if TJ 's head is large, I still might be able to use him! He wasn't at the store when I was there. He might show up at Christmas.
