Australian Girl Matilda was purchased a few years ago as a sample doll for Petalina to try dolls clothes on her. However, she is much bigger than any other doll available so she has hardly been touched since she arrived. None of the brands of clothes we sold fitted her.
Australian Girl Matilda is 50cm tall and is beautifully made. If all dolls were made to this high standard we would all be very happy! She has bright green closing eyes with long eyelashes on the top eyelid and painted eyelashes in the corners. She has a slightly open mouth showing two perfectly painted teeth and a faint smile. She looks like she will be lots of fun to be with. Her hair is a really well applied wig and is a mass of red curls styled in a centre parting with a lilac scrunchie to one side.
Australian Girl Matilda’s vinyl is perfect and matte, with healthy pink cheeks and lightly painted pink touches to her hands, knees and feet. I like how her arms are slightly bent so that she can hold things and it looks as if she is moving. Her body is really nicely articulated – her arms go out and stay there and her head can tilt and turn really well. She has a vinyl chest plate but a cuddly tummy and legs that do a bit more than just swivel. Her legs have a tendency to open a little bit so to stand her they need to be controlled.
Australian Girl Matilda arrives in a lilac and white striped T shirt with a lilac bow to one side, a denim skirt with velcro at the front, a pair of simple white jersey knickers and a pair of lilac boots. We also purchased a second outfit consisting of a pink and white striped T shirt with green trim and white buttons, a pair of white gaberdine cropped jeans with an embroidered flamingo, and a pair of white flip flops, which she can wear because there is a gap between her toes. Very sweet.
We have the original box for the doll but don’t have the original packaging for the outfit which will just be in the box with the doll.
