“ Manufacturer: Danbury Mint / Type: Doll „
For those of you who have been following my reviews, you will be aware that over the last few days, I have been appraising a number of my figurines. Today I am reviewing Danbury Mint's Red Hot Betty who stands at approximately 44 cm high including both her hat and base. Betty is manufactured from porcelain and is completely hand painted in order to give an extremely professional finish.
She has a 12 cm in diameter red sturdy base and the wording "Red Hot Betty is a Red Hat Lady!" is displayed across the front on a purple banner. The figurine has sturdy metal pins in the underside of each of her feet, which are placed into the matching holes within the base. Consequently, Betty is able to stand up on her own and is very safe and secure.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Betty Boop, The Hearst Corporation owns her trademark and all genuine figurines will have their stamp on the underside of the product. Whilst this collectable is sold by Danbury Mint, it was manufactured by Hearst and is exclusive to Danbury Mint and can be found on their UK website.
This figurine is one of the most colourful Betty's I have ever seen as she proudly wears her stunning purple satin dress, which reveals a rather enormous amount of her left slender leg via a very sexy slit to her thigh. Displayed above Betty's knee is a pretty white-laced garter with a tiny red heart. She wears high heel ankle strap sandals and sparkly red pearls around her neck and a large pair of dangling gold and red earrings.
As with all Danbury Mint figurines, the attention to detail is simply superb as Betty wears long black gloves and her hands are outstretched in order for you to place her extremely feathery boa around her neck and rest it over both of her arms. In her right hand, which is decorated by a red pearl bracelet, she holds a gold and black fan, which has been adorned with matching red feathers.
To complete her outfit, Betty wears a stunning red hat covered with dozens of red and black feathers and a huge corsage in the centre. There is a gorgeous purple ribbon tied around the centre and tied into a huge bow at the rear.
As with all of the large figurines from Danbury Mint, the accessories are all individually packed and you are required to carefully place them on the figurine. I was amazed when I received my very first figurine, as items such as necklaces and bracelets are identical to those an adult would wear with their clasps, which obviously in this case are tiny.
I have yet to find a Betty Boop that looks ahead, as the figurines always seem to be looking either to the left or right. Betty has huge pretty green eyes and long eyelashes and her red lips are puckered in a very sexy pose.
Betty can be purchased from the UK Danbury Mint website or you can contact one of the friendly customer services staff.
Red Hot Betty Boop will cost you £128 plus £6 postage and handling and is delivered to your door by courier. She is extremely well packed, so there is no risk of damage whilst she is in transit.
If you would prefer to spread the cost due to the rather high price tag, you can pay four monthly payments of £32 (plus £1.50 per month for postage and handling), which can be by cheque, credit or debit card.
This is an exquisite figurine and of an exceptionally high quality and consequently, it receives 5 out of 5 dooyoo stars from me.
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
