My name is Kimberly Gardino from Beach Babies and I welcome you to this very special listing! This listing is for Annika(The smiling blond baby) only. I have included all the photos from their official photoshoot but this listing is only for Annika. This baby is a prototype. Meaning, this doll is one of the very first of this kit to ever be reborned. She is made from the adorable sculpt “Annika” by Marita Winters which has just been released. She has SUCH a sweet face! The other 3 toddler prototypes(Kissy, Madelaine, and Mollylee) are available in separate listings. All 4 toddlers have full torsos and full limbs which means the dressing options are endless. Her torso is non-gendered so these kits can be made into boys if you wish. I styled and posed them for their official prototype pictures as if they are in preschool and in a pre-K ballet class. Each doll will come home with her handmade dress set, ballet outfit and shoes from their photos. Her adorable dress was handmade by Carol Prentice and her leotard and tights were made by Dollsecrets. I made their tutus myself. I painted Annika with a very fair Caucasian skintone that is warm and very detailed with lots of subtle mottling, blushing, depth areas and veining. I used Genesis and Authentic Reborn brands heat set paints to paint her which are the most durable paints for painting vinyl dolls at this time. She is awake with lovely big blue glass eyes. She has rooted upper eyelashes and painted lower lashes and brows. I delicately painted her barely-there eyebrows to perfectly match the color of her rooted hair. She is finely matted with Genesi. S Matte Varnish which will protect her paint for many years and retard shine. Her nails and mouth have been glossed with a very durable air dry satin varnish. She was micro-rooted with slightly wavy, adult mohair in pale blond. Her upper lashes were rooted using yearling fiber in the same pale blond color. She has full limbs and full non-gendered torso and is super poseable for the cutest photoshoots ever! Her arms/legs and head all turn with ease. I stuffed and weighted her with glass beads and poly fill. Her legs and arms were weighted with the glass beads and her torso and head were stuffed with the clusterfill. Her limbs and head were sealed closed so they will not leak. These toddler kits come with either straight or bent legs and I chose bent legs for Annika. She measures about 11 tall and weighs about 1.5 lbs. She was assembled on August 5th, 2019. She mainly wears doll clothing made for 10-11 dolls. Her shoe size is 23mm wide by 50mm long. She can wear tiny micro-preemie diapers usually available at hospitals. I will be sending her home with one of these tiny diapers. Just let me know as soon as you pay. Please keep in mind, the magnets I use, if you want them, are very strong Rare Earth neodymium magnets and people with pacemakers are not supposed to be in close proximity to them. Other than that I have no problem with new ebayers. Sorry for the hassle but we need to protect ourselves. That is illegal and means I would have no protection if the package goes missing. Sorry for any inconvenience. This will likely never happen as I provide lots of unretouched pictures and offer to take more. Track Page Views With. Auctiva’s FREE Counter.
