|Family-Dollar-exclusive 2-Pack Trendy Fashion Dolls|
|It wasn't until I examined them outside the box that I noticed a slight difference in their complexions.|
|Still attached to the box liner, their clothing is as expected, made from shiny, paper-feeling material that screams synthetic.|
|Close up of their lovely faces outside the box reveals their ethnically-correct facial features. I appreciate the dark lip color that compliments their complexions.|
|If I decide to rebody or an attempt at it, this articulated Integrity Toys body that I purchased two of several years ago will be a perfect match.|
|I don't know which doll these shoes were made to fit, but it apparently was not for these dolls. I could barely force the front of one doll's foot into the shoes, and the heel is not all the way inside.|
|Another con is the stamped brand that is on the doll's back. Clothing with the back out won't be aesthetically pleasing.|
The poor quality of the clothes, the shoes, rooted hair, uneven ends, and back stamp were bothersome cons. The doll's legs are hollow, but they are shapely and not pencil-thin like some dolls that have been sold at Family Dollar.
Since the Christmas season is approaching, I decided to dress the twins in Christmas attire. I dug through my Christmas sweater stash and found two sweaters that match two pairs of leggings that fit these girls.
|The sweater worn by the doll on the left has a Snowman theme. There is a penguin carrying gifts on the other doll's sweater.|
|I had to cut a considerable amount of one doll's hair. The ends were very jagged and unruly and each time I trimmed, it was uneven (scissor-user's error). These twins do not like wearing their hair the same way, so it worked out anyway.|
|This final picture was taken after the girls had their ears pierced.|
I used quilting pins to pierce their ears and to serve as stud earrings.
Another doll purchase on the same day was made at Walgreens.
While I waited for someone to meet me in Walgreen's photo department, I briefly scanned the toy aisle and found a playline Barbie that commemorates Barbie's 60 years of inspiring girls since 1959.
|The lower front of the box reads: Barbie 60 Inspiring Girls Since 1959|
|A facial close-up illustrates the persistent pink lip color that Mattel uses.|
This doll uses the head sculpt that was first used by Pants so Pink, Fashionista #12 Barbie.
|She has high-heel feet and wears silver high-heel shoes.|
|An image of #1 Barbie is on the back of the doll's box.|
Why did I buy this doll? For the commemoration, I guess.
