      A stunning Betty Boop figurine

      Over the past couple of weeks I have been reviewing a number of the gorgeous figurines within my rather large Betty Boop collection and I hope you have been enjoying reading them. This review discusses the recently launched Betty Boop Fishing collectable, which I recently purchased from Amazon with my Dooyoo vouchers.

      The gorgeous hand painted porcelain figurine stands at approximately 26 cm high where we see Betty sat on a tree trunk with a fishing rod in her hand. The trunk looks identical to that of the real thing, as the porcelain has been carefully calved to exhibit the tree's grooves. This piece particularly appealed to me, as other than Danbury Mint figurines, many of the Betty Boop collectables seem to be in standard colours, such as black or red.

      Betty wears a pretty khaki green mini skirt, which shows off her sexy long legs, which are poised in a very elegant position. Whilst not many women would contemplate fishing whilst wearing stilettos, Betty is the exception, as she proudly displays her high black heeled shoes. She wears a light brown short sleeved top with matching collar, where we are able to see four tiny buttons that have been carved into the porcelain.

      Her arms are positioned so she can carefully hold her black fishing rod, which has an almost transparent piece of sturdy plastic hanging down for her line and on the end we see Betty's catch, which is a rather cute orange and brown fish.

      She wears shiny gold coloured bangles on both of her wrists and a pair of large matching earrings. Her brimmed hat is in a beige colour and displays a khaki green band to match the colour of her skirt and there are two tiny decorative golden studs on the one side. Betty most certainly looks the part wearing her khaki green and is ready to catch more fish for her supper.

      The base of the figurine is approximately 8½ cm in diameter and I think it is intended to resemble earth. However, this part of the figurine isn't particularly impressive as the "earth" is too light a colour and there are a number of slightly raised light blue circular areas, so I'm really not quite sure what these are supposed to be.

      Betty always looks totally made up with her huge gorgeous green eyes and long black eyelashes. To finish her look, she has ruby red lips and blusher on her cheeks.

      The underside of the figurine displays the official stamp of Hearst Holdings, who own the Betty Boop trademark.

      You can purchase Betty Boop Fishing from Amazon for £41.99 plus £3.25 postage and packing. The figurine is despatched from the retailer Just4ugifts and my experience after purchasing three figurines from them, is simply superb. The communication is first class and the collectables have all reached me in mint condition within a week of ordering.

      I highly recommend this figurine 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.
