3.0 out of 5 stars Not Great And Not Bad Either,
This review is from: Barbie Princess Charm School: School Girl Princess Delancy Doll (Toy)This Barbie Delancey is what I'd call a mid-range doll - there are a lot of cut corners to lower production costs but it is still usually a step above the knock off barbie type fashion dolls. Delancey is a side character in the movie - the Blair doll features the main character. As such, I recommend purchasing Blair first before Delancey (purple) or Hadley (Blue).
Delancey has a purple tiara, purple plastic necklace, thin ribbon made into stays in the front of the dress, socks, and shoes. A tiny plastic purse comes as an accessory for this doll (Blair has a computer and Hadley comes with a ball). Each of the girls dresses have a 'topper' that matches their personality: Delancey is the 'princess' of the group so her dress has princess ribbons in the front and princess sleeves on her dress (and that's why she comes with a purse).
To cut corners, Delancey's belt dooes not continue to the back of the doll. It's not as noticeable on Delancey due to the way her dress is designed (unlike Blair's missing peplum). I consider this a bit of a cheat because you can't see that until the doll is taken out of the box. But this doll is clearly meant for very young girls who likely wouldn't notice or care.
Delancey has click-bend legs but the arms are stationary. Her hair is in two long ponytails with cheap elastic holding them (not very princess-like). Note that she doesn't have any undergarments - another cost cutting feature.
In all, I feel she is worth the money for the playacting but is clearly meant to be disposable.

This review is from: Barbie Princess Charm School: School Girl Princess Delancy Doll (Toy)My granddaughter enjoyed the DVD on Barbie Princess Charm school so much. When my daughter and I found the Barbie dolls to fit the DVD characters, we knew she would be thrilled reliving the DVD with her own dolls. She got them for Christmas and plays with them all the time.
5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter loves this!,

This review is from: Barbie Princess Charm School: School Girl Princess Delancy Doll (Toy)This is a great barbie if you like the Princess Charm School story. The shoes are a little difficult to get on and off, but that also means they are harder to lose. Worth the money!
