“ Manufacturer: Fleischer / Type: Collectible Doll „
The Betty Boop figurine I am reviewing today is one of her surfing, which is rather unique, as the majority of collectables within the range see Betty fully dressed wearing extremely fashionable clothes, designer stiletto heels and various items of huge sparkling jewellery.
The figurine is manufactured by Hearst Holdings Inc who own the Betty Boop trademark and their official stamp can be seen on its' underside.
Betty stands at 12 inches high and as the above-mentioned picture shows, we see her proudly showing off her extremely curvaceous figure in her red and white polka dot bikini. Betty is extremely brave wearing a strapless top as if she's not careful she will find that all of her surfing could result in her losing it in the waves of the sea!
The figurine is manufactured from resin and is extremely well made. We see Betty standing on her yellow surfboard, which has been edged in red and it rests in between the extremely lifelike blue and white swirling waves. She is in a slight crouched position and bare footed, which is a rarity for Betty, particularly as she loves her designer shoes! Her arms are outstretched with her fingers poised upwards as she battles with the strong current.
Betty would not be Betty if she didn't wear a little jewellery and this figurine shows her wearing a pair of large gold hoop earrings. This is the only figurine I have ever seen that does not show her displaying an array of jewellery, such as necklaces, bracelets and brooches, which clearly would not be suitable for the task in hand!
Each and every one of the Betty Boop figurines show her gorgeous black glossy curly hair by way of eight points along the top of her head and seven on the rear. She always looks stunning no matter what she does and this collectable shows her huge gorgeous green eyes and ruby red lips.
The figurine is considerably heavy considering its' size and is beautifully made with no attention to detail being spared. As Betty wears very few clothes, this is one of the more simple figurines with no further areas for me to review.
I was lucky enough to purchase my figurine from a shop owner who would regularly provide me with a rather generous discount due to my valued custom! Sadly, he had no choice but to close due to lack of business. You are able to purchase Betty Boop Surfing from Amazon for £39.99 plus £5 postage and packing.
Whilst it is not something I own, this figurine is also available in 2 and a half feet and costs around £80. However, hubby will be pleased to learn that this is nothing something I intend to purchase!
As this is such a gorgeous well-made figurine with no design faults, it receives 5 out of 5 dooyoo stars from me.
I hope you found my review useful and I would thank you for reading.
