|Doc McStuffins 9-1/2-inch vinyl doll with teen-type body|
Prior to finding the doll featured in this post, there had been only two Doc McStuffins dolls under consideration for purchasing and both are talkers. One was offered through the Disney Store online. The other, that talks and sings, was seen at Walmart.com (currently out of stock at the time of this writing). Of these two, the one at Walmart.com would have been my choice. That purchase was delayed and finally ruled out after I located the Doc McStuffins teen-type doll on eBay for $12.99 with free ePacket shipping from China. The box was a little banged up as a result of her economy flight.

Doc McStuffins dolls usually have a chocolate brown complexion with brown hair. This doll's complexion is light caramel and her hair is red, perhaps to make her more appealing in other markets. Her plastic accessories, shown better in the above image, include: an otoscope, medicine bottle, baby bottle, cup, bandage container, stethoscope, thermometer, syringe, clip board, and first aid kit.
Obviously manufactured for non-American markets, the text on the box is written in English with Arabic text on the back. Other undetermined languages on the front and back. I could not locate a manufacturer's name or year of manufacture. The graphics on the box almost look bootlegged.

Size-wise, this doll is a better fit for my collection than the other Doc McStuffins dolls I had considered. The cost was much less as well. Whether she is properly credentialed or a quack as in authentic or a knockoff doll, now that this doc is in, the "I need a Doc McStuffins doll" is out of my system.
