Oh yes finally here! I purchased the Baby, The Stars Shine Bright Jenny doll from Ebay and it came in time for Christmas! It took 2 weeks for it to arrive in Singapore from Japan. This is a collaboration with Takara Tomy x Baby, The Stars Shine Bright; a Japanese sweet lolita clothing brand. It was released mid-June 2014, retailing at 2,800 yen.
Off from the plastic sleeve photo. The box was slightly dinged from being shipped in an envelope with lots of bubble wrap but that is ok, as I was meaning to take her out from the box. As always I carefully undid the tape and wires. Baby The Stars Shine Bright Jenny comes with a pair of shoes and lace wristies. Unfortunately she does not come with a doll stand. That is quite a pet peeve as older Jennys had stands.
Once released, her hair is a matted mess! I saw from other photos of products and had worried about it and was right. It is so totally not like the advert they used:
She had hair falling out as I was separating the curls (gently), this was under half of what came out and I haven't even touched her hair yet. I didn't use a comb, just my fingers to gently spread out the hair so be warned.
So that sums up my review of the Baby's Jenny doll, I recommend it if you don't mind the curly floofy hair, she is pretty cute as is, and will be hanging around my work desk for now. Also I think I might fix her hair and tame it somewhat so she can model other lolita clothes!
Edit: I fixed her hair to make it more organised and she looks much better! Using my fingers, I grouped small bunches together and twirled them in the right direction. I have further rearranged the curls after these latest photos to make it more evenly spaced so she is very pretty now! A lot more hair came out and I trimmed the stray flyaways in her hair fringe.
Have a very blessed Christmas folks!
