Sophie is available in 2020 in this beautiful pink daywear outfit. Sophie is still available as a ballerina too, in another listing. She has been made for several years now in different clothing, and even previously called Laura and Clara! What remains is that this brown haired brown eyed beauty with this wonderful open friendly face is one of the most popular Happy Kidz dolls Gotz has ever made.
Sophie has a vinyl body with 9 joints and her face paint is very natural just like a real girl, and she even has an upper eyelid of real fibre eyelashes. Her vinyl limbs have joints at elbows and knees, in addition to shoulders and hips, and her head tilts and turns. She has fibre eyelashes adhered to the upper eyelid. Her eyes are fixed inset eyes and do not close.
One of the consequences of having so many joints is that these dolls are not as inflexible as some other dolls therefore there is indeed a technique to posing them.The Happy Kidz body is modelled on a typical 10-11 year old girl. Gotz moulds are designed with a degree of asymmetry to make dolls look more real as a reflection of the fact that in reality people are not symmetrical. Gotz’s high quality, real looking hair is durable enough for washing, combing and styling.
Sophie is safety tested for children from age 3 but we think the Happy Kidz range is best for children age 6 and above, as their jointed vinyl bodies can be tricky to position for younger children.
Age 3+ but best suited to 6+.
