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.
