What is it with Wednesdays being so hard to post on? As you saw with Tuesday’s post, I got Lea Clark! I went to the American Girl store last weekend (I have pictures by the way), and I had the money. So here she is!
Lea Clark is ten. She goes to Brazil for her stories. As soon as I saw her, I knew I wanted her. It took me about two months to get her, but it was way worth it. We were going to be in Columbus, so I convinced Mom to take me to the AG store. I had to wait several hours, till the way home to open her. I am very happy with the one I chose!
Here is Lea in her box in the car. (Excuse my knees!) She has here hair net on, and all the packaging. They have plastic ‘gloves’ now.
Now here is Lea out of box! (This photo was edited, so the colors might not be true.) Here’s Lea’s dress. It had different stripes, each a different pattern. It’s short, but that can be fixed with leggings.The top is braided yellow. This is annoying, because older girls can’t wear this dress without something under it. (Bras) The prints don’t match, and the braided belt doesn’t go all the way around. The prints line up in the back though.The bag’s strap have embroidered yellow Vs. The bag has two straps that hold the bag closed. They have a X pattern, and a yellow plastic ‘buckle’. It doesn’t work, but is a nice place to pull to open the bag. In between is her symbol.
The bag opens with Velcro, and while isn’t as big as most of my bags, holds enough stuff. It could work as a purse. Here’s the compass. It has a arrow which turns, but the compass doesn’t really work. In the middle is a star.Here’s another view of it. The clasp is knots. You slide the knots around to make it longer or shorter. It was a little hard at first, but not bad. The longest it gets is still hard to get it over the head, because they have such big heads. Here are the shoes. The sandals will be great for the summer. The back opens, but I don’t understand why, because the strings are elastic, and it doesn’t need to. She also comes with lime green undies. Lea has the Josefina face mold. She has tan skin, like she’s been out in the sun for awhile. She has feathered eyebrows, that make her look older. Her eyes are greenish with brow in them, and a black ring. I really like this. Hopefully in this picture you can see the highlights and colors. She has caramel/blond hair. Her hair was supposed to be curly, but it isn’t really anymore. It defiantly has a wave though. When the curls are pulled straight it comes almost to her knees! And even though this picture is blurry, you can see that they don’t have strings anymore. I hate this, but it will make pictures easier. Let’s just hope her limbs don’t get loose. And here is her book. It didn’t interest to me as much as they books usually do, but it was still a good read. The title gives away the ending though.
Anyway I LOVELOVELOVE Lea. If you are thinking about getting her, let me make the desion for you. GET HER! Can you tell I like Lea?
