Happy Days!

I received this beautiful doll yesterday, she was the doll I selected to replace the pre-order doll I cancelled and I am extremely happy with her. She is a 52cm, second edition Jamie, sculpted by Dianna Effner for "Maru and Friends" and the tallest of all my vinyl dolls.


When I opened her box, she was held in place with white satin ribbons and wore a hairnet over her hair. A certificate of authenticity was included, along with the story book about Maru and the friends she makes when she arrives in America.



The clothes she is wearing came with her and are extremely well made, they include underpants, boots, slacks, top and a jacket which is quilted and fully lined, just like a jacket we would wear ourselves.

She is so pretty I am tempted to add another of these dolls . . . but not for a little while yet. :)

  1. Wow, she is a pretty doll. I adore her face a lot and she has such delicate freckles. Loving her eyes too. They remind me a little of the masterpiece eyes (is that the right name?).

    You can tell the quality of her clothing. It looks great and the colour scheme, wow. Love the white and pink theme. Big congrats!

    1. Hi Alasse,
      I had a feeling you might like her, she is rather special. :) Fancy asking me about eyes, I can hardly differentiate between all the eyes, I just know what I like when I see them and I agree this are pretty LOL!

      Thanks she is definitely a keeper.

  3. She's lovely Xanadu, I have her cousin here, Tanya, and I do think they're well made dolls, including the clothes. I particularly like this outfit, it's so nice and 'white'! Clean and crisp like freshly fallen snow. It's great that you're happy with her after the experience with the Kidz n Catz doll. I look forward to seeing what you make for her.
    Hugs Sharon xx

    1. Hi Sharon,
      I am really happy with her, she stands really well and her head tilts nicely, so it makes her easy to photograph. I was really pleased with the clothes, the colours are perfect and I didn't quite expect them to be so lovely. If I do order another it will be Tanya, I have seen several owner photos of her now and she looks wonderful, much prettier than the promo photos.

    1. Thanks Irene. I most certainly will, but as we are in our autumn and headed for winter, there will be plenty of time to make her summer clothes. :)

    1. Hi Lily!
      Thank you, I am pleased with this one even though she is much taller than my usual choices. :) Her clothes are much better than I expected to find on a doll and I surely will enjoy her.

  10. She is pretty, and big! I didn't know they were so big, but I guess finding clothes for them is easier?
    Anyways, congrats!!

    1. Thanks Musume, yes, she's big and not at all the size I usually find appealing, but I am glad I brought her home. :) I'm making her clothes rather than buying them as she's a good size to sew for.
