Rebecca Rubin Mini Doll
Rebecca Rubin joined our family and became Haley's doll. She is one of the prettiest
of the mini dolls…her coloring and eyes are unique. A bit more expressive than some I have seen.
The mini dolls do not stand well on their own; at least not without a lot of adjusting and tons of patience. I think it is due to the sock/tight seam being centered on the bottom of the foot. (Yep, that's it. I took Felicity's socks off and she stands fine in her bare feet.)
Rebecca's hair is really full and curly. Very soft too. The little gold barrette is cute, but doesn't tame her curls that much. It may be removed, but I’m not going to unless I have to.
She arrives in a tiny version of
Rebecca’s meet dress. It is made of a heavy burgundy
material with black an gold embellishments. She is also wearing black tights, white bloomers, and black and white button-up boots. (LOVE the boots.)
Her dress and boots have Velcro down the back so you can remove her shoes and clothes. There is elastic at the dress's waist so it doesn't just slide right off.
Here you can see her dress, bloomers, tights, and boots. I love that you can dress and undress her.
Like the larger dolls Rebecca's head and limbs are vinyl and her body is soft. Her head is attached similarly as you can see by the strings at the back of her neck.
Rebecca has huge tags attached to her back. The biggest wraps around half of her body.
The tights and bloomers and shoes are easy to get back on. The dress is another story. The elastic at the waist gets caught on the bloomers. That’s a slight annoyance. The big issue…the cuffs. Because the materials used to make the dress are heavy, the seams are thick. The thick seams narrow the space where the hand should go through the wrist; her thumb and pinky get caught trying to go through the cuff. (I had wanted to trade clothes with Felicity, but that’s not going to happen.)
Speaking of hands...I’ve had the Felicity mini doll since before AG changed her meet outfit. Their hands are shaped the same way, but
Rebecca’s vinyl is softer and you can kind of squeeze her
thumb and pinky in a bit. Felicity’s vinyl is rigid…there is no give in her
hand, so I don’t think it will go through the cuff of Rebecca’s dress.
Rebecca's mini doll is great! Pretty and expressive face. Soft hair. Cute outfit.
How many mini dolls (AG or other) are in your family?
Come back again tomorrow for a mini adventure. ;-)
Thank you for stopping by. Visit with us again soon.
*Rebecca arrived Monday but we didn't post her arrival until Tuesday.
