I bought this doll before I realised that she was a Generation Girl, because I love her curly hair texture. Her hair is matte rather than silky and it feels wooly. I have read several blogs by collectors of black dolls who speak particularly highly of Nichelle because of this.
This Nichelle is a Dance Party doll, released in 2000. She’s lovely, but she doesn’t show the attention to detail I have noticed in my other dolls from this range. For example, her fingernails are painted to match her lipstick, but she doesn’t have separated fingers. I didn’t buy her in her original outfit (I’m not bothered, I’ve seen it and I don’t like it very much anyway) but she is wearing her original jewellery. Its plastic but it does look like metal – SIS designers, take note! She’s wearing 2009 barbie fashion.
