Disclosure: My cousin received the following for review. All opinions are her own.
My seven year old daughter opened the package and said “But it’s not even Christmas or anything!” She has several different 18in dolls from a few different companies. She was excited to receive her newest doll, which is her favorite now. She received a doll from Springfield Boutique, and I must say I noticed the quality right away when we took her out of the box.
My daughter received Alexis, and she appears to be extremely well made. These dolls are manufactured by Fibre Craft and their clothes are compatible with other 18in dolls. My daughter was so excited when Alexis arrived in her blue nightgown; she couldn’t wait to introduce her to all of her other dolls.
Alexis has long, silky hair that can be brushed and styled using a rubber bristle brush and a spray bottle with lukewarm water. Alexis has a soft body and it is easy to move her arms and legs to pose her, or just when changing her outfit.
We also received another outfit for her, which is a beautiful purple gown with sparkly fabric. I was surprised at how reasonable the prices are, considering the high level of attention to detail that is apparent with the clothes, which are available at JoAnn fabric stores. We also received patent shoes and white gloves to complete the ensemble. My daughter already started making a list of which other outfits she wants to get next. The Springfield outfit selection seemed a lot more trendy than some of the clothes I’ve seen from other companies.
I myself loved pretend/imaginary play as a young girl, so it is heartwarming to see my own child experience the same joy. My daughter was enchanted with Alexis and she and a friend spent a long time playing with their dolls on her most recent play date. My daughter says she wants to collect the other Springfield Dolls now to add to her collection.
The clothes are interchangeable and offer a variety of styles and functions for girls. My daughter wants to take her new doll with her everywhere we go now. We are very satisfied with the Fibre Craft products and would definitely recommend them to other parents. And since they are so affordable, they’re ideal for birthday gifts for friends.
