HABA Götz Dolls ~ Review & Giveaway!

Posted by Jenna | Wednesday, May 01, 2013




**The products for this review/giveaway were provided by HABA. All opinions are my own and were not influenced in any way.

For as long as I can remember, Kaelyn has always loved dolls. She enjoys everything from dressing them up, cuddling with them and combing their hair. I'm always on the lookout for high quality dolls that she will enjoy which is why I was excited to learn that Götz, the beloved luxury German doll maker, is coming back to U.S. shores!
Götz is bringing back an extensive assortment of dolls and accessories to the U.S., all courtesy of HABA! The history of this brand is as storied and rich as HABA's own. In 1950, Marianne Götz handcrafted beautiful dolls while her husband would sell them from a wagon that he'd pull on his bike. Decades later, the second generation of Götz family members is still running this business...now with these two companies coming together to sell their adored doll line to American children ages 3 and up! 

A Götz doll is known for her extraordinary hair, sculptured face, trendy clothing and soft fabric/vinyl body. Visiting the HABA website and checking out the assortment of Götz dolls, I could see why any little girl would love them! Known for their superior quality and design, I knew it would be a new favorite of Kaelyn's (and mine!) and was excited we were going to have the opportunity to review one. 








Features/Benefits:

  • adorable floral and hearts outfit
  • beautifully sculptured faces and expressions
  • superior quality and design
  • highest quality, natural-looking hair 
  • for ages 3+

When the Precious Day Girl, Jessica arrived, Kaelyn couldn't wait to take her out of the box.
 
What caught my attention right away is the superior quality and design of this doll. I could tell that her soft fabric and vinyl body would hold up well to a lot of use! I also appreciated the sculpted face and expression. It is really what sets this doll apart and brings her to life for young children. Right away Kaelyn felt like she made a new friend and was asking Jessica if she'd like to meet the other dolls in her bedroom. :)
 
Jessica came wearing an adorable floral and hearts outfit which Kaelyn loved! It is trendy and fashionable. They are made well and contain as many details as real children's clothing - perfectly finished with button holes, pockets, and embroidery just to name a few. And better yet, these outfits can actually be washed and ironed too!
Speaking of washing, not only can the clothing be washed, but so can the dolls! If they get dirtier than a spot treatment, these dolls can be tossed into the washing machine! Simply place the doll in a pillowcase, turn the water to cold, delicate cycle, then let the doll lie, belly down, until dry. That's it! I was really impressed to learn this!
Kaelyn absolutely adores her new doll. The 18" doll size is perfect, not to mention the fun features which make playing with her even better. For instance, Kaelyn not only enjoys dressing her up, but she also LOVES her hair. The neat thing about this doll's hair, is that it can be washed, styled (even with a curling iron or blow dryer on low setting!) and brushed just like a child's hair! Any other doll hair would melt doing this, but the company roots the hair right into the doll's scalp so they won't snarl or kink. This really makes playtime a lot of fun for Kaelyn. She loves playing with her dolls hair and enjoys that she can wash it too!
Overall, the Götz doll has been a huge hit in our household! Even my 3 year old son likes to play with it! The excellent quality and attention to design and detail really set this doll apart from others. Kaelyn has hardly set her down since she arrived int he mail! We love the features that bring this doll to life, including her fun and hair and clothing too. It's been fun to sit back and watch as Kaelyn uses her imagination while playing with Jessica...the possibilities for creativity are endless! It's a fantastic doll and one I know she'll be playing with for years to come!
 
There are also many other dolls in the Gotz Line! A couple more of my favorites are:

 

Buy It: The Precious Day Girl- Jessica - blonde 18" retails for $89.99.

Win It: One VERY lucky reader is going to win a Götz doll of their choice (except for the standing dolls).

    Hey there! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I had
    to ask. Does operating a well-established blog such as yours take a large
    amount of work? I am brand new to writing a blog but I do write
    in my diary daily. I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
