Last but certainly not least in my line-up of Hat-tastic dolls is the Apple White doll! She is my favorite, so I forced myself to open her last! Here’s a spoiler alert: I absolutely love everything about Apple. I love all of her dolls, her character, everything! So if I am gushing, forgive me.
Apple is the only one of the three Hat-tastic dolls whose box really focuses on the reason for this party. The other boxes mention it, but Apple’s comment really focuses in on the problem. Someone want to tell me which character is selfish and self-centered now?
Her hat/headband features a tufted white hat with a large red bow. Red is the theme for this gal! The band on the headband is black, but it is covered by all of her lush hair, so it doesn’t stand out too badly. You can also see that Apple has a section of hair sewn to her head similar to Briar. I’m not taking this out, either!
She wears white cuffs and black (non-textured) gloves. It is really weird to see Apple without one of her bow or apple rings. I’m going to need to fix that. Is anyone looking to get rid of one of Apple’s rings??
Kind of surprisingly, Apple’s dress is all one-piece. I know that that ruffle near the skirt, it looks like two pieces, but I assure you, it is all one piece. She has a Minnie Mouse-style red with white dots top with a white and black bodice. I really think this dress could have done without that little ruffle in the middle. Was that to make up for not having a belt?
Apple’s shoes are another pair that we have seen on the Chinese auction site taobao. Many people thought they would belong to one of the twin daughters of Rapunzel. Turns out, those curls are for Apple. Apple wears ankle-high fishnet socks. It is such a strange choice that I really like it.
Apple has a pink purse with a little Apple accent. The long black strap looks like little pearls or beads. Her purse also has what looks like a little leaf motif. I wonder if all of these leaves are a nod to the Wonderland Grove that the party is celebrating?
I am in love with this doll! Seriously! When they are available to a wider market, I plan to buy a second one of these dolls to straighten her hair and play with. Blondie better watch out! This might be the doll that bumps her off of my “Most Favorite Doll” spot!
