More Information About This Item
This beautiful ballerina doll, Clara Marie, has been created to capture the spirit and aesthetic beauty of the lead character in the world-renowned Nutcracker ballet. Clara Marie was the first doll to be made by My Ballerina Dolls.
She's made from hard plastic vinyl, 53cm tall, and has an extraordinary 23 joints. Joints at the elbows, knees torso and waist are double jointed for extra flexibility. Clara Marie can be posed in all your favorite classical ballet positions.
Her eyes are blue inset acrylic eyes, which means they don't close. She wears a removable very long brown nylon curly hair wig.
Her white lace gown is embellished with sequins and lilac bows; the sleeves are fluted from the elbow to the wrist. In her hair she wears a pearl ornament and a separate ribbon decoration. Both are fixed with kirby hair grips. (Please note we have found that the kirby grip holding the ribbon bow can slide out into the bottom of the display box during transit, but can be easily fixed back into the hair.)
Clara Marie wears fabulous pink satin ballet boots that tie with ribbons at the knee. They are something of a feat in doll shoe design - and everyone loves them!
How could she be Clara Marie without her own wooden Nutcracker? Of course this comes with her in the attractive display box.
The My Ballerina Dolls are suitable for children of age 6 years +.
Note from the manufacturer regarding the first production:
"We originally designed and created these dolls for children to play with. Upon receiving our factory shipment they had used a "bald" cap on the heads then placed the wig over that. (This was so wigs could easily be exchanged). What was happening was that children would receive the dolls and when playing with them the hair would dislodge. To fix this issue we replaced the bald caps with velcro to secure the hair. In so doing we had to open the box ... and removed the hair from its plastic strip to accomplish this."
The wig is now it is secure for styling, whilst it can still be replaced by those who like to change wigs: the best of both worlds. The Snow Queen, made later than Clara Marie also has this type of wig fastening to allow children to play and adults to change wigs.
