Alexis by Via E is an all vinyl play doll that was developed in the US by Ellen Callen. Alexis was the first doll to be made in the Via E range and is now sold out. For some reason she wasn’t on the stock system at Petalina so she just sat around not selling, and here she is, new and unplayed with.
We have the original box but it’s looking quite tired now (I remember it looked a bit tired when it first arrived) and Alexis comes with a Certificate of Authenticity stating that she is first production, number 287 out of a run of 550. It is dated 30/3/2014 and signed by Ellen Callen.
Alexis by Via E is 19 inches/48 cm tall and can wear most 18 inch doll clothing. She has a happy smiling mouth because she loves to have fun, and blue closing eyes with eye lashes on the top eyelid. One of her eyelids is a bit sticky and doesn’t open and close as reliably as the other. Not broken, just not perfect.
She has light brown rooted hair which is very long, and mostly silky and soft. The ends are a bit dry and frizzy. The original pale pink satin ribbons are still in her hair. There are some short sections at the front which you can see over the tied section of her hair in the close up. Not sure if this is an accident or a tiny fringe.
Alexis by Via E has joints in her elbows and knees and her arms are designed to be able to put her hands in her pockets. Her arms and knees to bend a little but they don’t stay fully bent. They also don’t go really straight so she is quite difficult to stand up and needs to lean forward. Alexis also has a gap between her toes so she can wear flip flops. There is a paint spot on one foot and the painting on each foot is a bit uneven.
What is amazing about Alexis is that she can be used in the bath or pool for an hour at a time. We also have the instruction sheet for looking after Alex after water play.
Alexis arrives in her original greet outfit except for the boots. A customer’s boots on her doll fell apart so we sent her the boots from this doll. Instead Alexis is wearing some pretty black shoes. She comes in a long sleeved pink T shirt with a cat printed on the front, a short denim skirt with velcro fastening, a pair of white jersey knickers with pink elastic and a pink and denim back pack.
Payment by Paypal please.
Due to her box this parcel will be quite large. It can be sent with Special Delivery for £11 to anywhere with a UK postcode with the exception of the Channel Islands. Please get in touch for a quote for delivery elsewhere. I am happy to send the doll without the box too reduce the price of shipping internationally but the price of the doll would be the same.
