Dolly Review: Hearts For Hearts Girls Rahel (Giveaway, Too!)

Up for review today is Hearts For Hearts Girls Rahel. Rahel, a 14″ doll that represents a girl from Ethiopia, is part of the 2016 MPA Sales relaunch of the Hearts for Hearts Girls doll line.

So, what’s she like? Her vinyl is softer than I expected. I like the feel of it! Rahel is articulated, to an extent. She has nice shoulder and hip joints that turn out in all directions. Her head has great articulation. It swivels in all directions, as well and holds poses.

What I really like about Rahel is her face! Just like the original launch, Rahel has glossy inset eyes. They look very pretty and are the feature I most like on the Hearts For Hearts Girls. Her face is natural with no make up.

Rahel has an awesome head of curly hair. It looks pretty neat and totally fits her face sculpt. I was happily surprised to see that the round afro wasn’t completely flat in the back when I de-boxed her. It kept its shape quite nicely!

She’s decked out in a bright, colorful outfit with a cool ‘V’ in the back. Her top is really a leotard that is covered with a long skirt. The skirt has a bit of velcro attaching it together, making both elements removable if you decided to redress her. I think the outfit looks great, especially on her dark skin.

Let’s not forget the jewelry. Rahel wears a cool necklace around her neck and has bracelets on both wrists. One wrist has two elastic bracelets (or hair bands, possibly), while the other has plastic ones. To me, they read more as bracelets, as this hair doesn’t need styling. She wears earrings, too!

There are plenty of accessories, quality accessories at that, that come with Hearts For Hearts Girls. Rahel came with a booklet explaining her story, printed on thicker paper than expected. It goes into her country, the life she lives and what she strives to change for the future. She also comes with a comb (which may not come in handy so much for this particular doll, but is welcome) and a kid sized friendship bracelet. All three extra’s are much higher quality than I expected. As we all know, this is where companies tend to slack a little on materials, but not MPA!
