Comments about Product: My daughter loves all things supernatural - particularly those with 'evil' connotations: goblins, monsters, dragons - and of course - witches! So, I knew the moment I came across this doll I had to get it for her.
She's a really sweet doll, and is made in Germany by Kathe Kruse - so I knew she was a safe bet in terms of the workmanship and materials.
The doll, without her hat, measures 7" which is a great size for toting around, but just large enough so she doesn't get lost too easily. Her clothes - cotton jersey striped pants, superbly-detailed cotton dress, red shawl, and black wool felt hat - are easy to remove, which my daughters consider a necessity.
The hat, however, does not stay on and even seems a tad small for the doll's head. We remedied this by sewing on a ribbon that could be tied under her chin to keep the hat in place.
Her hair is beautiful, super-soft, wavy mohair. She has lots and lots of hair, and it is quite long - knee-length I'd say. Despite how lovely it is, and how touchably soft, it attracts mad amounts of lint. Every time I come across the doll, I give her a thorough de-linting, but my efforts are in vain. The upside of such long hair is that it can easily be braided or thrown into a pony tail, and will likely have its own play value in years to come when the girls take interest in 'styling' it. One more note on the hair is that it is much more red in color than in the image.
Her broomstick, which was broken the first day, is a traditional broom, rather than the twiggy broom pictured. In fairness my children actually wanted to use it for sweeping, and it's more of a display piece than a device for completing miniature household chores.
It's a bonus that she is really easy to sew new clothes for. Because of her cloth body, imperfections in my homemade patterns don't interfere with wearability. Plus we discovered all the doll clothes from our old 1960's Wendy-kins doll fit this doll, so that has provided her with a ready-made wardrobe.
All in all, a great doll from both mom and kids' perspective.
