This week’s doll was a surprise present from my sister-in-law Louise who has just returned from a trip to India. I’m not sure when this doll was issued but she is listed online as new style Barbie in India. The last release I could date was in 2012.
Like most Dolls of the World Barbies she has the old style Twist and Turn body with the ballet arms. I wasn’t going to de-box her but then decided that I would so that I could see where she was made. She is marked Indonesia. Her clothes are really lovely, nice quality fabric and glowing colours. It seems that this doll was made with a variety of different colour sari’s. Lou’s favourite colour is orange so this one must have jumped out at her.
Naturally as soon as I saw her I knew she was going to be my Friday Girl this week.
