Felicity Doll- Mattel w/ Traveling Gown
Pro's: Felicity is a beautiful doll, with lovely natural-colored hair and pretty pincurls.
Con's: Her outfit is a teensy bit cheesy. And, as for personal opinion, her eyes are a bit too bright.
Detailed Review: I received Felicity as a Christmas gift 2 years ago. I've always loved her stories, and was excited to get a Lissie of my very own!
For the outfit: My favorite part is the socks. They are so versatile and well-made. My least favorite part is the necklace. The necklace does not seem at all authentic, but I am no expert. It stretches as well as having a clasp, and is made of fabric. The coral necklace was probably more accurate. The dress is a bit chinsy. I loved the print and embroidery, but the fabric was this slippery-cheapy fabric. I was hoping for it to be cotton which would be more time-period correct. The shoes are nice too, very versatile with most of Felicity's everyday outfits... They look nice with her riding outfit and Rose Garden gown especially. I REALLY like the shift. I hated the elastic ones because they always got SO stretched out. If you're like me, the velcro is a lot better and longer-lasting! But, you've got to be careful to close it nicely so it doesn't get caught on anything.
Now... Onto the doll herself. Now, don't get me wrong, I really like Felicity, but her eyes are a bit too bright. They seem unnatural. However, they are quite pretty if you overlook that they seem very fake (they look almost like Felicity is wearing color contacts). Her hair is pretty and natural looking, but is more of an auburn color, not red. I don't like the bright red of the earlier dolls and I prefer this color. The best color, though, would be in-between, a little more red than this brownish one. Overall I would give Felicity an A-, mostly because of some of the outfit... and the bright eyes. However, if you really like her, don't hesitate to get her! You will love her!
