If you haven't read my first post about these fairy dolls you can do so here, but I'll do a quick recap for you! In 1997 a movie was made about the famous Cottingley Fairies it was calles FairyTale: A True Story and to tie in with the movie Playmates put out a series of 10 fairy dolls. I had a couple and I loved them but of course I lost them as I grew up. I recently remembered them and decided to go hunting and so far I have two.
Each of the fairies has a skill or talent. Yarthkins is the super fast, acrobatic fairy:
I'm not going to show the whole box again but I love the box art and wanted to give you guys a little better look at some of my favorite parts:
Here is Yarthkins out of her box:
Her outfit is a silky, purple collar shaped like flower petals and a yellow, tulle bubble skirt.
Her painted on body suit is teal with yellow circles.
And of course it's covered in glitter! Luckily none of it sheds.
Her face mold is the same as Hob's
Her eyes and eyelashes are green instead of blue though and her lips are a darker pink.
Here you can see you make-up a bit better and her delicately pointed ears:
|Also I need to clean off her ear!|
And here are a few extra shots:
I am just as in love with Yarthkins as I am with Hob. Really these dolls just give me such a nostalgic happy that I'm pretty sure I'm going to squee over each one! Next I want to get one of the Royal Faires so I can show you all the difference. I really want Morgana or Queen Mab so keep your fingers crossed for me! Till next time!
