It has been a big few weeks for miss Sybbie with the start of kindy, an ear infection and several visits to the hospital with her broken little finger. She has settled in well at kindy and aside from a few tears really enjoys her playtime two mornings a week. It has made me realise how much she has grown this last year, she sure is a big girl now! She loves drawing, creating things with glue and scissors and playing with her sisters and their Australian Girl dolls:
So far sweet Jasmine has been claimed by older, dark-haired sister Olivia, her curly-haired sister Juliet is the proud owner of gorgeous Matilda and now miss Sybbie is over the moon with an Australian Girl of her own: meet Emily (RRP $139.95)!
With her bright yellow checkered shirt, brown boots and a proper Akubra on her head Australian Girl Emily looks like she would feel right at home on a station (very large farm) in the Aussie outback. You can see immediately that this is a girl who loves adventure, enjoys exploring the backyard and adores local wildlife. I think Emily would have loved to help out when we caught an injured koala in our street just a few weeks ago!
Like her friends Emily measures a generous 50cm tall, a perfect step up from the newborn doll Sybil used to play with. Made from firm, lovely to touch rotational vinyl and with strong ball joints the limbs are free to move and can be positioned during play, she can even stand up by herself. At the same time her torso is mostly soft so she is still huggable and human-like.
Sybil is particularly pleased with Emily’s beautiful long blond hair, after all she is a blonde herself too. She loves brushing the high quality kankelon hair (the same hair used in human wigs) with her little Australian Girl brush, if only she was this patient when I have to brush her own hair in the morning. Ribbons, bows, hair clips, she can’t get enough of it. She has already requested some new outfits for Emily so the girls can come up with even more stories and watching them play together and use their imagination is a real joy.
