One of the dolls my family got this year for Christmas was the Dolls from Heaven St. Joan of Arc doll. Dolls from Heaven is a relatively new company, whose message is to inspire all children to become Saints. I first heard about Dolls from Heaven on LADL. I knew these dolls had to join our family!Our St. Joan of Arc doll arrived dressed for battle in her armor and with her book "She is Joan of Arc" (not shown). We did not purchase St. Joan's accessory set.
St. Joan has pretty blue sleep eyes, and shoulder-length, straight blonde hair. Her hair is wigged and extremely soft. I love her eyebrows. Her lips look like they are hand painted.
There is some nice blushing on her hands, knees and feet, and she even comes with her fingernails and toenails painted.
I think St. Joan's outfit is really cool. There are a lot of pieces and they are really well done. The armor and wrist cuffs are lined. The "chainmail" is really well constructed and closes in the back with a zipper. You can tell that Dolls from Heaven took the time to get this outfit right.
It is appropriate for young children to dress and undress the doll, but the pieces are well thought out and really look like a little suit of armor!
St. Joan's body is designed similarly to AG dolls, and can pose like AG dolls, though I think her hands might be a tiny bit larger, and her head is a little bigger. She can nicely wear AG and OG clothing and shoes. She actually looks quite cute in the new AG brownie ombre glasses.
