One of the sweetest dolls we have is Maru from the Maru & Friends line. She is 20″ tall and all vinyl with a gorgeous face sculpted by the very talented Diana Effner. Natalie took a few photos of Maru in her spring outfit which will fit some of our 18″ dolls like the Gotz, Carpatina and Kidz n Cats dolls.

One of the things I have noticed about the Maru and Friends doll clothes is they are very well made! The embroidery and detail in Maru’s top as well as the inset pleats on her shorts are just one example.  Maru can move her arms and legs but her elbows and knees do not bend. Her head can move in all directions which is nice for catching her sweet expressions.

Maru is a very caring girl who is always wanting to help others. She has found Kit’s dog wandering in the neighborhood and gives her a big snuggle.

Here are even more photos of Maru in case you missed them:
