Meet Marina Anchors ♥ *image heavy~

As mentioned in the post before I was going to do a proper post about my lalaloopsy
I received 'Marina Anchors' from the 2011 collection. Too lazy to adjust lighting in the pictures ^--^" sorry.

The packaging for this doll this huge! The box is bulky in the shape of a house with a cute little heart handle. Hanging on the front is her birth-date + her personality. I love how it says "for ages 4 to 104" As for the back is a picture of the doll & it's pet. ( All doll's come with a pet) Then on the bottom it shows the other dolls in this years collection. There's also a further description of the doll.
Opening this doll is ridiculous! The tape that the manufacturer chose to use is extremely hard to rip off and theres tabs everywhere! After 10mins or so wrestling with this box I finally opened the back and I saw this...
More unpackaging! The double sided poster is just a picture of the doll on the back of the box and on the other side it's all the dolls in this years collection. It's rolled up in a really stupid way it's like waves...
It's like taking apart a bomb! You have to twist, unwind, unloop, re-bend plastic etc. my gosh! Another 5mins later my doll was free! Shes 33cms tall I believe. Her head weighs a tonne! She can't stand by herself as her head is too heavy and her feet are angled downwards. Even when she sits she needs something to support her, otherwise she'll topple over. Her leg joints are just like a human where the legs can go back&forth and the arms go all the way around and back&forth. As for the head it can be spun all the way around 360. As mentioned before all dolls come with a pet. Her's is obviously a whale! It has a little hat, a heart shaped tale and it's blushing! ♥
As you can see she has a straight fringe and 2 braids in a bow and as her name may hint she has a sailor outfit! It's a dress with puffy sleeves, a bow and pleated skirt with little bloomers underneath. There's a velcro at the back so you can change her clothes. I think you can change her shoes yet but I haven't figured how to do it ): and on the bottom of her shoes is L and R in hearts I thought that was cute. Also she has white undies with her birthday printed on a heart on her bum! The little details on this doll are so adorable.

Lastly, I will be on hiatus again! It's my last term of school! So it's going to be really stressful so I most likely won't be posting for awhile. Hopefully when I come back I will have graduated! (: ♥ See you guys in a few months!
