Dolly Review: City Girls Harper (New York Doll Collection)

By Ashley Brooke, Kewpie83 @KewpieDoll83

From the New York Doll Collection comes the City Girls, a line of dolls themed around the boroughs of New York City. City Girls are 18″ tall dolls with stuffed torso’s and vinyl limbs. Sent for review was Harper, a girl made to represent the Bronx. Harper has the darkest skin tone of the dolls so far. She’s a little lighter in real life than in her promo photos.

Each doll in the line has their own unique background. Here’s a bit of Harper’s story, as written on the company’s website. “…I live in Riverdale with my Dad, Grandma Elaine, and younger sister Violet. My mom passed away when Violet and I were really young, so Grandma Elaine came to live with us. I love Art. I am a painter and love to sew. Grandma Elaine taught me how to sew dresses and accessories. I’ve gotten to be so good at it that I now design my own dresses, shirts, and accessories!… My favorite place in New York is the Metropolitan Museum of Art… My biggest dream is to have my own fashion line for girls and women who want to look artistic, unique, and express their creative sides through what they wear.”

One of the things I like about this line is the face mold. Harper has a round face with chubby cheeks. I think it’s rather cute! She has dark brown sleep eyes and long lashes.

Harper is wigged and has long silky dark brown hair. You can comb and style it. I’m very happy with the quality of the hair. Sometimes 18″ dolls like this can have course, rough hair, but Harper’s is the opposite.

As I mentioned earlier, Harper has a stuffed torso with vinyl limbs, like many other 18″ dolls. Because of this, I wasn’t sure if she would be able to stand on her own. Surprisingly, though, she stands like a trooper! This is because of her hard, densely stuffed torso. On a similar note, the cloth body is a good color match to the vinyl limbs, which isn’t always the case.

Since the character wants to be a fashion designer, it’s no surprise that she’s wearing a stylish outfit. I love the fur vest, long orange shirt and black leggings. The fur boots complete the look. Harper wears a Queen Elizabeth the Second pendant. I don’t know about you, but I’d totally try to rock a look like this! Per usual, velcro is used on the outfits, but the way they utilized it is a little better than other companies.

Overall, I like Harper. Having never seen these in person, I wasn’t sure what I was going to think, but I am happy about the quality that I see in the City Girls dolls.
