Susie from R&D

Susie is a new 11" fully jointed fashion doll from R&D Fashion Dolls in Taiwan She made her first appearance in December 2003. The very first Susie is the Chinagirl Susie. Chinagirl was available in two versions, the blonde which is limited to 300 dolls and the redhead, which is limited to only 100 dolls and is now sold out.

I can't say enough good things about this doll! The quality is outstanding. The clothing is fully lined and finished. The dress has a tiny zipper in the back and the doll wears underwear with a separate slip under the dress. She comes with her own lucite clear base stand with sturdy metal upper to support the doll. Her joints are tight and fully poseable. For a doll in the $75 to $85 range, she is well worth adding to your collection.

My newest Susie, the exclusive gothic Susie from BIC in Japan, limited to 300 dolls for the Japanese market and released in May 2006.

I added the cross earrings.

Susie as Queen of the Nile was released in October 2005 in an edition of only 70 dolls.
