I read about these dolls on D7ana's blog and I knew that I had to have them. I purchased Benjamin and Dominique.
They are beautifully displayed in their boxes, but I could not resist opening their boxes. These are 10" dolls with minimal articulation. Their arms and legs move up and down and swivel, and their knees bend very slightly (they will hold one click). They can easily stand on their own.
Here's a view from the back. Dominique wears hoop earrings and a ring on her finger, and her nails are painted. Both dolls have rooted hair, and Benjamin has real cornrows.
Here is Dominique with some other female teen dolls. She is slightly shorter than the High School Musical dolls. She is thicker than most other teen dolls, but not as thick as Tracy Turnblad.
Here is Benjamin with some other male teen dolls. He is about the same height as the High School Musical dolls. He is stockier than all of my other male teen dolls.
Benjamin and Dominique have made quite a few friends here already.
I love the fact that these dolls provide some variety as far as the way that they are built. I have been wanting some thicker teen dolls for a while. I am really happy with both of these dolls!
