|Pretty Girls Tween Scene Dhara|
Unlike the first series which were fairly standard 12" fashion dolls, this line is on a taller 15.5" (almost 40cm) body. Although I don't own a Little Miss Matched doll, from photos I've seen, this body is similar but not identical to that line (the face style on the other hand is very much in the same style).
Because of the size difference, it actually took me an embarrassingly long time to find these dolls in store - due to the large boxes, they turned out to have been shelved with baby dolls rather than fashion dolls. So if you're like me and have been looking in the wrong section, now you know!
This release has traded the purple packaging of the fashion doll line for a pink and blue colour scheme.

The pink inner box slides out easily, and since the doll is attached via a few paper ties, the unboxing is nice and simple.
The doll comes dressed in floral leggings, red sculpted vinyl shoes and a grey long-sleeved top. She's accompanied by two accessories: a floral sleeveless top that matches the leggings, and a red sequined backpack (which was shedding sequins whenever I touched it). There's also a poster that's really just advertising for the tie-in outfit packs.
