Introducing Marie Therese, otherwise known as Madam Royale, the eldest daughter of Louis XVl & Marie Antoinette. Marie Therese is a mini American girl doll Elizabeth, purchased on ebay for $22 with free shipping. She is the older type of mini doll, with the soft upper body and vinyl limbs and measures 6 inches. American Girl has revamped the mini dolls and they have solid vinyl bodies and now measure 6.5 inches tall. I still need to get Ruthie for my Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler's little girl Bonnie.
Elizabeth is the best friend of Felicity in the American Girl retired historical line- that is another thing American Girl did away with- the best friends of the dolls or the historicals. No more best friends for the dolls! I am thinking of looking on ebay for the rest of the dolls I could not find before the BeForever launch. It was pure luck finding her at such a great price w/ shipping and she came with her hardcover mini book. The new mini dolls come with a paperback book.
I still have not finished Louis' coat and vest...so have a long way to go. But will probably have an update on his bedroom soon!~Lisa
