I've fallen in love with yet another Curvy barbie, Fashionista #51, Polka Dot Fun. and as a bonus, I was able to get her on sale!
the back of the box features the overwhelming number of dolls in the fashionista line.
she wears a simple dress with cap sleeves. the top is a really nice medium blue. the skirt part has a black background with pink, orange, yellow, and blue polka dots on it.
to accessorize, barbie has a pink necklace. it looks like a chain with different sized links. also note her very pretty face and beautiful thick hair.
barbie wears a nice sensible pair of white sneakers. they have lots of nice molded in details including stitching, laces, and treads on the bottom. I like it when barbie has shoes that real people could actually wear.
The Bottom Line:
The Good: pretty doll, full hair, new body, nice fashion
The Bad: no articulation
The Verdict: for selfish reasons I suggest everyone buy Fashionista #51 (Polka Dot Fun), because I want Mattel to keep making more Curvy barbies. she is a lovely doll in her own right though, so if you collect playline you will probably be happy with her.
