Prodigyrls' website and deciding Janelle needed to join Nicole, I ordered Janelle this past Monday. She promptly arrived yesterday. I took several photos of this caramel-complexioned cutie with cinnamon-colored Shirley Temple-curled hair, and read her story on the back of the box. The photos, story, and my opinion of Janelle follow:
Janelle wearing chef's hat
Janelle without hat -- she has a pink T-shirt on underneath her chef's coat.
Janelle can "take off her chef hat" by literally removing it and the coat to nicely blend in as a casually dressed doll in the collection.
Janelle's Shirley Temple-curled hair
Back of box contains company info and Janelle's story, which reads:
Prodigyrls (pra-dee-girls) is a unique collection of African-American dolls with realistic facial features, skin tones, and hair. Our dolls reflect the beauty of African-American girls. Each doll tells the story of what she is passionate about and how she was inspired to pursue her dream.
