The Wellie Wishers have a new look--new meet outfits and new boxes. Some lucky early birds were able to order them already, but look to their official release later this month.
The outfits on all five of the original dolls will be updated versions of their originals, generally speaking more costume than play outfit. Along with the costume-like theme, the material for the bodices are more stretchy "swim wear/leotard" type materials and lots of tulle netting on the skirts.
The new doll, left, appears to be a little shorter than the original model and the face mold seems a bit fuller. The eyes seem rounder as well. The early talk is there has been a slight change to the plastic used in the bodies as well as an attempt to design fix the tendency for Wellie Wishers to break at the leg/hip joint.
The new Willa also appears shorter than the original version. Like Camille, her face mold seems fuller and with rounder eyes.
All five Wellies still come in their original wellie boots and the play factor for young ones is still strong as ever. Looking forward to future expansions to this line!
