The cool Nordic beauty
Sophie is my first Kidz ‘n’ Cats girl, one of the 2012 releases. While searching for doll clothes patterns on the internet I had discovered the Kidz ‘n’ Cats dolls, and had been blown away by the natural looks of these highly articulated, strung-jointed dolls.
Kidz ‘n’ Cats have four different head moulds and Sophie’s is the one I think of as ‘classic good looks’. She has blue eyes and flaxen blonde hair, very northern European or Nordic. Her outfit is stunning, grey trousers and a lime-green polo-neck topped with a forest green embroidered smock-top. She wears matching tartan boots and scarf, an embroidered hat, and pulse warmers.
After a period of lengthy thought, I have realised that Sophie’s clothing season is Spring. She looks lovely in the clear warm colours and fresh yellow-greens of that season. This seems quite an unusual colour season for a doll, and she is my only Spring girl and has the pick of the materials I have in that colour range.
Like all the Kidz ‘n’ Cats dolls, Sophie came with a little grey cat, wearing a tartan dress and maroon beret which match her accessories. Oddly, this works quite well and the cat is rather charming.
