Princess Zara!

Let me introduce to you Princess Zara of Zaboomga.  She is a limited edition doll created for the benefit of Sickle Cell Anemia research.  Made in China for Princess Zara Inc. Elmhurst, NY 11373.

She’s a thrift store find last year, sealed in her box, NRFB, until only just recently when I posted her for sale online, I need to know her flaws for the benefit of the would be buyers.  So I have to unbox her.  It includes 1 Jewelry Box, 1 Hairbush, a CD but I guess, it doesn’t play.

When I found her, I didn’t think twice buying her because I liked AA dolls, and she’s ethnic, different from the usual model muse dolls.  A little expensive than the average thrift store nude dolls I usually buy.  Since she’s sealed, I wasn’t really able to check her for defects. 

Her face is made of hard rubber, her head is rooted along hairline only (I think) not sure coz I don’t want to tinker on her ‘do, that’s her crowning glory, I didn’t want to ruin the twisted hairstyle.  She has TNT body, the material they used on her body is similar to the cheap Barbie clones being sold in department stores.  Her legs & knees are bendable, they are not like those thin legs of clone dolls, but, alas! 

These are manufacturing defects, the knees can bend yes only at some extent, but the vinyl (skin) is damaged.  Actually, we usually call it “short shots” wherein the legs were taken out of the mold without waiting for the proper time for it to fully form. 

Some plastic flash on her arms not fully trimmed. 

My apology Princess Zara, I have to disrobe you!

Why am I selling her along with another AA doll?  I am cash strapped right now, plus, I might have to let go of at least half of my collection.  Although not really final decision.  Just another thought because I have not much playtime anymore.
