This review is from: Barbie Dolls of the World: Princess of Ireland - Collector Edition Doll (2001) (Toy)"Many years ago on the misty islands of the European continent, a noble race known as the Celts inhabited the land." (Mattel) Thus begins the information on the back of the box, which reads like a fairytale.
Princess of Ireland is breathtaking. She is more incredible than any of the on-line pictures can show. Her complexion is fair, and her auburn hair shines with deep, rich color; a section on the left is braided, and cascades to her thigh. Her cheeks are dusty roses, her green eyes seem to twinkle, and her lips are the color of garnets. She wears a forest green velvet cloak; the clasp is a Tara Broach, "a very famous bejeweled pin thought to have been worn by Celtic royalty." The golden broach is the color of her crown and the three Celtic medallions on the half-belt at her waist. Her dress is loose fitting, as the time would indicate. Down the middle of the front of her gown is a 1" wide gold, green, and shades of rose trim that displays several Celtic designs.
Behind the Princess of Ireland, there is a castle with several turrets. Should you choose to display this doll out of her box, a stand is included.
Fun: She is stunning, and brings imagination the first time you glance at her.
This is a very reasonably priced doll for collectors and as gifts for favorite children, they will love her -- another princess for their collections.
