Review of Autumn Days Trixie
Reviewing another child doll today.
This is Autumn Days Trixie from 2015, from Effanbee/The Tonner Doll Company. She's one of the two new dolls in the Patsy line, along with Lacy Summer Day Patsy, which I don't have. She's the third Trixie offering ever, since Trixie debuted as a character last year. She has a wonderful face, and the new super-articulated body with bending elbows, wrists and knees.
Both Autumn Days and Lacy Summer Day Patsy have a period look to them, like they come from an earlier time. I love the clothes on both. This hat is so cute! It actually comes with a clear elastic band that you could loop under the doll's chin if you wanted, but I don't find it necessary. The hat stays on just fine without it.
The dress is made from a very soft fabric, and has snaps in the back. It would be easy for a child to get the clothes on and off, which I can't say about every Patsy outfit. The sewing and fabrics are both nice quality, and all the inside seams are finished. She comes with matching bloomers underneath. The socks are knee-high; they aren't tights. The brown Mary Jane shoes fasten at the sides with a single bead as a button. A lot of the Patsy dolls have this same style of shoe, so if you have a lot of Tonner Patsy outfits, you'll pretty much have a million of these in different colors. They're nicely-made and fit the doll well, though, and they don't fall off when you lift the doll. Hey, that's important! It means no lost doll shoes. Yay!
I really truly love the face on this doll. So sweet and serene. She makes for a perfect compliment to the Patsy dolls. I do hope the Tonner Doll Company offers a Trixie in a darker skin tone as well some day. This skin tone is lovely, but darker skin would be lovely, too.
