New Poppy Parker dolls

by Alison Rasmussen



Five new dolls have been released with a June 2013 delivery date. Poppy Parker at the 1965 International Fair provides us with international costumes and Poppy as we haven't yet seen her. These dolls are limited to 750 each and retail for just $89.

My favorite is the pale skin tone, red-haired Poppy called Sweet in Switzerland. This beauty is dressed in a white dotted chiffon blouse, full pale blue skirt, dirndl belt, white jersey tights and blue tweed cape. She also includes a muff, faux fur hat, and fur trimmed ice skates. Her facial screening is similar to Foto Fab.



Spicy in Spain provides us with a mid-toned brown haired Poppy with a layered lace skit, and chiffon and satin blouse with lace sleeves. She includes a hat, black pumps, an embroidered clutch, hoop earrings and ruby ring. She uses a new style of facial screening.


Pretty in Polynesia gives us a versatile raven-haried Poppy with tan skin. She uses original facial screening (from the first release of Poppy--think Reluctant Debutante and Portrait in Black). She includes a patterned bathing suit and matching wrap skirt, and blue satin jacket. Her accessories are a lilac clutch and matching pumps, multicolored bangle bracelets, beaded necklace and flower for her hair.


Irresistble in India is limited to 750. We see a brunette, dark skin tone poppy in an elaborate India sari. She includes a gold clutch and pumps, lots of bracelets and beaded earrings. This doll uses the gorgeous Bergdorf facial screening.


Joyful in Japan features a platinum Poppy with an updo, lavender eyes, and doll dressed in a pink kimono with coordinating obi. She includes pearl stud earrings, white clutch and pink pumps.

It's difficult for me to choose a favorite! I'm partial to both Switzerland and India. Just lovely!
