Meet Grace, who is my Gotz Hannah at the Ballet African American / black doll, I fell in love with her last month thanks to pictures by Maxine from My Doll Best Friend so couldn’t resist adding her.
She’s utterly gorgeous, as all the Hannah dolls are, the eyes and face are so expressive and her hair is fab. This is the outfit she arrived in, I wanted to take photos before changing her around as she looks so cute, and poses quite nicely.
On the whole I think jointed dolls (Kidz n Cats as well as the Gotz Happy Kids range) are a better design in terms of versatility in posing but she looks pretty good nonetheless. Its great to see ethnic dolls available in the more expensive play doll ranges, I wish the doll makers would create more dolls along these lines – as it is, Gotz also make an Asian Hannah at the Ballet who is also on my wishlist. Hopefully posting these pictures shows off how delightful as doll this is, the offical Gotz images don’t really do either of the non-white dolls justice, hence my lack of interet up until now; I think people are missing out on a treat here, Grace is a wee darling for sure!
