Meet Helen

My little Dutch girl

I’m very lucky to have Helen.  By the time I discovered the Kidz ‘n’ Cats dolls, Helen was no longer in production and I couldn’t find her at any of the online shops in the UK.  But I put the word out on a Facebook group, the Kidz ‘n’ Cats Bazaar, that I wanted to find her, and one of the members kindly told me of a shop in the Netherlands that still had one left.  A small struggle with the Dutch online order form, an exchange of emails with the charming proprietor, and Helen was on her way to England!

My Helen is a 2011 vintage 17.5″ Kidz with 9 joints, not the really sought-after 2009/10 type with the slightly rounder face – but she is exquisite nonetheless.  Her vinyl is far superior to that of my other Kidz Sophie and Annika, both later 11-jointed dolls from 2013.  Helen’s arms and legs actually stay bent when I put them into position!  So I am very happy to have her and she is certainly photogenic – the camera (even one wielded by me) really loves her.

Helen is a Winter, and her delicate blonde beauty looks particularly lovely in white and pale cool ice shades rather than the darker jewel colours of that season.

Helen: vital statistics

  • 17.5″ slim bodied doll
  • 9 strung joints
  • Blue eyes
  • Pale blonde Kanekalon wig
  • Season: Winter
