This is my daughter’s doll so she has been played with but when Rosie was 8 and 9 and was careful by this stage.
Matilda is clean and tidy. Her wig is still very good, a little dry perhaps. I tried to show some dye transfer marks around her waist in a photograph but the camera didn’t pick it up, so the marks are faint. She is wearing all her original clothes and the white petticoat also has some pink dye transfer from the skirt.
We haven’t washed her ball gown and there is a light pen mark on the back of a sleeve, there is a little bit of spotting on the flocking of the mask, there are a couple of marks on the cream underskirt but these are hidden by the overskirt and there are some marks on the side of one of the green shoes.
The nightdress has a couple of very faint marks.
The velvet of the cape is very good but there does seem to be some dye transfer to the white fur lining of the hood as it has a slight cast of faint pink.
Although not perfect, I believe that our A Girl for All Time Matilda doll and clothes are still in very good condition and have lots of play time left in them. I have made the price very fair because of this as well.
The price is £70 + postage which I need to work out. I am happy to send around the world but the method would need to be fully insured and trackable. International post because of Covid is quite slow at present and probably best avoided. Shipping in the UK would be with Special Delivery.
