5.0 out of 5 stars High Quality Barbie Silkston,
This review is from: Mattel 2011 Barbie Francie Silkstone Doll - Mattel T7943 (Toy)"Check Please" Francie is one of the few Barbie Silkstone collection to feature a non-Barbie model. Francie is decked out in 1960s splendor, with a high quality suit, upscale purse, and doggie on a leash. The Silkstone material she is made of is heavier and softer than normal vinyl - meant to be much more like porcelain. As such, she makes a lovely display in or out of the box.
Although the doll is of highest quality, note that the dog is a bit of a let down - kind of looks like an art project rather than a nice plush. Also note that for this modern updating of Francie, she has more of the barbie Silkstone cupid-bow mouth.
In all, this is a great entry in the Silkstone series. Since it is not poseable and made from a less durable material, it really is only intended for adult collectors and not children.
