Eeeeek! Meet Alice Kingsleigh, the first arrival in the Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland collection by Tonner Doll Company. In my opinion, the doll looks older than actress Mia Wasikowska, but I find her endearing and wonderful on her own. Honestly, I haven't been this enchanted by a Tonner Doll in a long, long time. I think she's absolutely fabulous.

Her dress is blue organza with blue button details down the front, black embroidery at the hem, and lace detailing at the collar. The sleeves have intricate pin tucks. Her soft cotton petticoat is trimmed with black and white bias ribbon. She's wearing white and blue striped tights and matching fingerless gloves. Accessories include a gold necklace with a red jewel and the most fantastic white and black lace-up boots with tiny button details I've seen from Tonner. They look like mini Fluevogs. Adorable!

You can see more photos of her first shoot on my Flickr photostream. Let me know what you think of her. I was so pleasantly surprised--I'd seen a few photos of her from IDEX and Toyfair, I was sure I'd be disappointed. But I think she's lovely.
