Franklin Mint and Ashton Drake Dress their Princess Catherine Dolls

The Franklin Mint will be producing a vinyl portrait doll of HRH Catherine. You can have one (or more) for $295.  Click on the picture to see the description and/or to place your order.



Here is Ashton Drake's porcelain 16" doll for $149.99.  Their description says fully poseable. Hmmm...I wonder exactly what that means. They did a very good job recreating the look of the gown but it it likely a retouched photo for now. It's too good.  Click on the photo to go to the Ashton-Drake page.

Tsk, tsk. The Danbury Mint still has their artist's rendering on their website.

Personally, I would rather have a Pippa doll in the dress SHE wore. What a great-looking doll she would make!

  1. Why are all these Kate dolls so toothy?

  2. They can't seem to recreate her lovely smile and mouth.

  4. Personally, I liked the FM engagement doll version better. I'd put the wedding dress on her.

    Teeth are very hard to sculpt (think FM's JFK- although they did a wonderful job on MM).

    Maybe AD now has a stock articulated body- Obviously, couldn't use the old Gene body.

    I'll wait until I see real dolls, and an FM sale, LOL!!!
