Earlier this spring it was announced that long time Madame Alexander Doll Company partner, Kahn Lucas who also owns the Dollie & Me brand, had bought Madame Alexander. While is still is not clear the direction the company will now head in, the Madame Alexander/Dollie & Me cooperation still seems to be developed.
Madelon found the Dollie & Me 18″ line of dolls at Kohl’s and ordered the brunette. The dolls are made by Madame Alexander and have the same face as Madame Alexander has been using for the Dollie & Me dolls for a while.
She definitely has a classic Madame Alexander face that we have seen in their Favorite Friends, Play Wonder (at Target last year), My Life As (currently at Walmart) and other related lines.
Right out the box the outfit is cute enough but the skirt is way too short (hard to see from this angle).
The bangs are very soft and a bit tangled, but I think it will brush out.
Here is the side view. I like the weight of the tights and the hard plastic shoes that look like fabric.
I like how the dress/tunic sparkles for the season. If only the dress were just a teeny bit longer!
The Kohls website has 3-4 different versions of the Dollie & Me doll on sale for $24.99 right now (regularly $50) as well as some mix and match fashion packs and matching outfits for girls and dolls.
Thanks so much to Madelon for sending this in!
