Josefina Mini Doll Item# 47485
$20 (price increase from $22 to $24 January, 2012)
This 6-inch doll brings Josefina’s (ho-seh-FEE-nah) world to life on a smaller scale. She arrives dressed in a traditional New Mexican outfit. Plus, she comes with Meet Josefina, a miniature version of the book that tells Josefina’s story of growing up in 1824.
Mini Josefina was my FIRST American Girl doll or American Girl anything for that matter. She's very special to me.
Her hair is the softest of any of my mini dolls or 18" AG dolls. Her braid has a tiny sprig of primrose and a small blue ribbon. Adorable.
Her earrings are stuck in place on her ears and don't move around at all. That's very good. Her eyes are so big and brown, that it makes her look much younger than her 9 years.
Her blouse, skirt, sash and bloomers are identical to the full size Josefina but just miniature! Great quality.
Her moccasins are actually a different material than the full sized doll, and in my opinion, a better material. Somewhat thicker, fuzzier and sturdier than the meet moccasins on 18" Josefina. The shoe strings are a slick nylon cord that doesn't stay tied. And with these being miniature, the strings are WAY too short to re-tie!
Her cloth torso and limbs are also exactly like the bigger AGs and everything about her miniature self is so perfect. Wonderful play value and Josefina loves having a 'just like you' doll for herself!
