Well I had to go over to Target to get a few things for the house and you know I had to go into the toy section. I was hoping to see the Tim Gunn dolls there but no luck! As I was look at the dolls I notice they had the older Chelsea dolls with the bent arm. I glance at the Renee and she looked like a different doll. So I took her down to get a closer look. I got there other Renee that was there to make sure it wasn’t my eyes having a problem.
Nope, it wasn’t me! She had a slightly different face. I guess there had been a problem in the line. She was a little darker and her head was smaller and her face paint was smaller too to match the face.
Normally this kind of mistake results in a doll not worth purchasing but not with this doll. Something said to rescue this girl! The differences my not be as noticeable in this photo so let look at her side-by-side with Renee/Delia.
Her face is small like a Kelly but just a little wider. Her complexion is about 2 shades off the Renee/Delia doll. You may not be able to see the complexion differences because of my poor photography….Sorry!
So I purchased her (I shouldn’t have, I spent a lot on dolls lately!) and took her home for some experimentation! I put her on a body just slightly smaller than the Chelsea doll. She can be a whole new character her now! I have alway said that slight differences shange the charater of a doll. You can see that here.
I am expecting some smaller bodies in the mail soon so she may go down even further in size. I will curl her hair and maybe bring her lip color down a few shades too. But this is the way she is for now!
Thanks For Looking!
