Happy New Year!

Best wishes to all of you for a very happy and prosperous 2015!

My Kenner Dana doll has a lot to celebrate in the new year. Today is her first day out of her box.

When I was a child, I had Dana's friend Darci. Darci was my favorite fashion doll because she could do more poses than my other dolls. I didn't know that Dana even existed until I was an adult. The 10 year old inside of me was gleeful as I removed Dana from her box. Here she is standing for a pose. She can stand without assistance in her shoes, but it is difficult to balance her.

She sits quite well.

And she does other moves well, also.

She has clicky arms and legs, and articulation at her waist. 

Her legs click 4 times, and her arms click once. Unfortunately, my doll can no longer hold her right arm in a bent position. Her right hand can hold objects.

She's ready to return to her celebration with her new friend.

    1. Happy New Year to you, Night Owl, and thanks! I really like her hair, and I should probably get her a net so that I don't mess it all up.

  6. Happy New Year! I can imagine that was a great feeling to debox her. She did really good to come straight out the box AND find a new friend. Lol! Go Dana!

  7. Thanks for sharing! I never saw Dana or Erica in stores so I only got a Darci. Congrats on getting her. She's on my "someday" list ;-)

    Happy New Year! You're off to a great start!

    1. Thank you D7ana, and Happy New Year to you! I loved my Darci as a little girl, and would've loved to have a Dana if I had known that she existed! I rarely saw Black dolls on the shelves back then. I'm happy to have Dana as an adult. She had been on my "someday" list for a while.

  9. I have wanted this doll too! She has great flexibility. That is a great sofa and chair set. Did you make it?
