Review of Unboxed Keltie & Fifer
November 30, 2017
Unboxed both Keltie and Fifer yesterday and here are my thoughts. When I looked at Keltie to buy, I liked her color tone but wasn't impressed with the colors for her outfit...I thought she needed something a better color for her...and she has plenty of glitter on it if you want glitter all over your house. I changed her outfit (gave her top away to a Hearts for Hearts doll) and washed her shoes to get rid of some of the loose glitter. It would be nice if the shoulders were jointed enough so that the arms could move a bit away from their body, and if the hips were better jointed so they could sit without their legs splaying way out, but what do you expect for $20? And I am wondering if Wellie Wishers have either of those attributes...I don't have one here to compare because they have a big price tag, and I am not a fan of their facial expression.
Keltie's hair seems pretty nice: it is softer than most wavy hair inexpensive dolls. Not sure how it will hold up to play, because we haven't had her long enough to tell. Clothes: they seem nice. She cannot wear Hearts for Hearts clothes or Faith and Friends clothes, because she is a bit larger in the torso. However, I have seen claims that the Wellie Wishers clothes fit these dolls. Box: the front of the box is open...on Keltie's dark skin especially, you may notice a shiny rub on her nose from bumping up against something. However, this can happen to dolls even in boxes with the clear plastic. Just something to watch for if you are a collector.
If you don't want glitter, Fifer is a nice choice. Her outfit is cute and not glittered...just remember to carefully clip the threads that hold the corners of her jacket to her top. Her hair is very soft and smooth and, like I said about Keltie, not sure how it will hold up with play, but it seems nice for this price range of doll. I did not see a nose rub on Fifter, and if she had one, it might not be as noticeable as on Keltie.
All in all, I think they are worth the money and a good alternative to more expensive dolls in this size range.
