Betty Boop on Scales
Advantages: Everything! She's cute and perfectly designed and I adore Betty Boop!
Disadvantages: Absolutely none!
Please note that Dooyoo requested that I submit my product suggestion in the toy category, but this item is a fragile collectable as opposed to a toy.
Santa was extremely kind to me this year and brought me a few gorgeous Betty Boop figurines to join the rest of my huge Betty Boop family. Two of the figurines were very apt for Christmas time when we all tend to over indulge as one is Betty jogging whereas the one I am about to review is named Betty Boop on Scales.
The 30 cm resin figurine weighs just under a kilogram and is part of the November/December 2011 collection. The manufacturers, namely The Hearst Holdings Inc who are the owners of the Betty Boop trademark have created a stunning collection of figurines as the quality of them is simply first class. I tend to carefully scrutinise all of my new collectables and on some occasions the paint seems to have been applied a little carelessly, but I can find absolutely no faults with any of the new range of collectables.
Betty stands in a rather provocative pose with her rear end stuck up in the air and her torso leaning forwards as she positions her head slightly forward to read the dial on the weighing scales. Her feet are firmly fixed to the large scales, which displays a white circular dial with tiny markings. Whilst the dial is pointing towards a particular marking there is no indication of Betty's weight, but I presume her to be rather light considering her curvy and slender body.
Betty wears a tightly fitting red, yellow and white striped leotard and similar to that in every other figurine that I own, it clearly displays her rather ample chest. The leotard is cut highly at Betty's legs so that her perfectly toned thighs are well displayed. Betty is a lady that adores showing off her bare flesh and this outfit most definitely achieves this! She wears a pair of pale pink leg warmers, which have been created to resemble material as there are tiny creases to give the illusion that they are loose fitting on her legs. In her right hand is a red and white striped candy cane, but I'm surprised she's clutching this so tightly, as obviously the scales will also take its weight into account. On the rare occasion that I step onto my scales I will remove everything on my body including my wedding ring as every little helps!
Betty wears a large pair of golden coloured hoop earrings, which are perched on both sides of her head as we are never able to see her ears. Her black glossy curls are illustrated with eight curvy spikes running along the top of her head and a further eight curves running around her hairline. Betty's lips are normally puckered, but she appears to be smiling in this figurine and no wonder, as she's probably extremely happy with her weight! Her huge green eyes look down towards the scales and are framed with her long stunning black eyelashes.
Cleaning this figurine is a task that I have yet to undertake, but it will be relatively easy with a cloth and a small clean paintbrush to access any hard to reach areas. Located on the underside of the figurine is the manufacturer's logo to guarantee the figurine's authenticity. There are also 5 small circular felt pads to prevent the figurine from moving when on display.
Betty Boop on Scales can be purchased on Amazon and at the time of writing she is listed at £50 inclusive of postage and packing. This figurine is absolutely adorable and for that reason she receives 5 stars together with my recommendation.
I hope you found my review useful and thank you for reading.
