One of the newer 18″ doll companies, Harmony Club Dolls, sent me one of their dolls to review recently. I picked Jazzmin for her super long deep brown (almost black) hair and crystal blue eyes. There was just something about her that I really liked.
Harmony Club Girls have really grown as a company this year. The first generation of their dolls had different faces from Jazzmin and honestly, I wasn’t very drawn to them at all. I don’t know what it was, but I just didn’t like them. The second generation Harmony Club Girls are a huge improvement with much sweeter faces to go along with the great variety of wigs they pair with them to get the various looks.
Jazzmin comes dressed in black leggings (yes, I just realized one leg is pushed up and the other is not) and a dress that looks like it is a skirt and top. She also comes with purple shoes.
The Harmony Club dolls have a soft body like American Girl dolls but instead of the canvas feeling body, Harmony Club doll bodies are a fuzzier material. They also did a nice job of adding natural looking blushing on the dolls feet and hands, plus her fingernails and toenails have been painted a shade of light pink.
They sent me two extra oufits for Jazzmin to model for you. This beautiful red dress zippers up the back, has skinny straps, a two layered skirt and comes with great accessories like a pearly bracelet, necklace and pearl embellished headband. The only part about this outfit I am not crazy about is the shoes. They are red patent leather, but are a bit big on Jazzmin and they are a different shade of red from the dress. Overall, this outfit is very pretty – especially for Valentine’s Day or Christmas.
The snowy woods made a great backdrop for this photo. You can get a better look at Jazzmin’s crystal blue eyes in this picture and you can see the texture of the fabric of her body.
American Girl Nicole welcomes Jazzmin to the family and promptly decides to try on Jazzmin’s meet outfit. Nicole explains to Jazzmin that closet swapping is just part of daily life in the Doll Diaries world! I think American Girl dolls are just a hair slimmer than Harmony Club, but they have no problem sharing clothes and shoes.
Jazzmin models her Pretty Party dress with its sweet purple details, layered skirt and sweet flower trimmed Mary Janes. The dress is very nice but pulls every so slightly across the chest of Jazzmin. I will try it on a few of the other dolls and see who has the best fit.
One of the things I like best about this dress is the purple trim on the princess seams along with the little flowers on her shoes!
Jazzmin’s hair is extremely long and straight which means we will have a lot of fun trying new styles on her.
Jazzmin is a nice addition to our doll family and will be making more appearances! You can see the whole Harmony Club Dolls collection at their website. Their dolls are around $70-85 each and can be ordered online.
