It’s always a very enjoyable experience taking photos of new Kidz n Cats dolls that arrive at Petalina, and now it is the turn of Kidz ‘n’ Cats Lauryn, Marina and Alyssa. They arrived a few weeks ago but I wasn’t happy with the first set of photos and today found myself with peace and quiet on my hands so I took advantage. I went off and found a brightly lit window and these photos are all taken with natural daylight with the white balance set on the camera. I hope you like them!
First up is Kidz ‘n’ Cats Lauryn. I think she is amazing and a much needed red haired doll in the collection. I really love her limited edition brown eyes too which look gorgeous with her hair colour. It’s also very refreshing for Lauryn to be wearing purple. So many doll makers put their dolls with red hair in really bright colours whereas the subtlety of the lavender and purple looks beautiful.

Next up is Marina, a blonde haired blue eyed doll with the most recent face sculpt by Sonja Hartmann. Kidz n Cats Marina’s wig has a thick fringe and a tiny plait down each side of her face. Her hair is also extremely long and silky for lots of fun styling. Marina’s outfit is a simple summer dress with organza roses on one shoulder, and lots of bright floral embroidery on the skirt. She also comes with a white net petticoat which peeks out slightly beneath her dress, but I have to admit to preferring the dress without and haven’t included it in the photos. She’s lovely though isn’t she and looks as if she is ready to have fun!

And finally we have Alyssa, and I’m so pleased to see this face mould back. This face was one of the two faces of the very first Kidz n Cats collection ever, used for Mareike, Helen and Amelie, but it seems to have fallen out of favour and isn’t being used very often now which is a great pity – because it is gorgeous!

So who is your favourite? Out of these three, I think my favourite has to be Lauryn.
