My daughter collects the mini dolls and I normally pay little attention to them as I don't want to slide down yet another slippery collecting slope! However, I wanted to add some photos of mini special edition Cécile to this section.
The mini doll's dress is a faithful replica of the larger version and is absolutely lovely...but too short. Dresses for girls this age should hit at midcalf with just a hint of pantalette below the edge; when in doubt go longer, not shorter in skirt length. AG too often skimps on the skirts for the NOLA dolls, even the minis.
Mini Cécile's wee matching hair bows are quite cunning but wow, that hair tends to the wild side. Those crazy curls add fun to her character, though.
I imagine there are differences from doll to doll but ours has very light eyes, which I'm not fond of. I wish there was less white, more green.
I have to say that looked at from certain angles the mini Sonali mold looks like the Classic mold, only in dark vinyl!
Cute doll overall. Likely to be hard to find on the secondary market in the future since it was only available for a few months and had sold out by November 30, 2011.
