My daughter just loves playing with and caring for her dolls, favouring the 18 inch dolls with realistic proportions over barbies.
Soft bodied with hard plastic vinyl limbs, the Darcy Curl is a beautiful large (18 inch) mixed-race doll with stunning curly hair.
She comes dressed in school uniform complete with shoes, socks, knickers, skirt, shirt and cardigan, although as she is a fairly standard size you can buy outfits for her on Amazon or Ebay quite cheaply (I may have bought a few Christmas outfits already…) or if you’re clever, you could make your own!
She comes in a carry case so that you can take her with you anywhere you go. Although she is safe for children aged 3+ I would suggest that five is the perfect age, as she needs her lovely locks – which are sourced from premium wigmakers to make them realistic – to be looked after properly.
