      A gorgeous collectable for the Betty Boop fan

      As you are no doubt aware I am Betty Boop mad and have previously reviewed my more eye-catching figurines. As I had yet my birthday on Monday my hubby presented me with a beautifully wrapped present where inside I found a large heavy brown box.

      You've obviously guessed what was in the box - yes, it was a Betty Boop and this gorgeous figurine shows Betty on the golf course. I product suggested this stunning collectable to Dooyoo several weeks ago as I had been hoping to purchase it from my Amazon wish list as soon as I had enough vouchers. Thanks to hubby, I am now able to review it much sooner than I had expected.

      The figurine is manufactured by Hearst Holdings Inc, the owners of the Betty Boop trademark and on its' underside you will see their official stamp by way of a tiny image of Betty, together with their name.

      This gorgeous poly resin figurine weighs around a kilogram in weight and stands at 30 cm in height and shows Betty in what I would say is rather inappropriate golfing attire, particularly as her extremely short mini-skirt is likely to set some hearts racing amongst the male golfers! She is securely fixed to a circular pedestal, which has been designed to depict a section of the golfing green and we see her posing with her tiny realistic looking golf club, which is raised behind her back in readiness for her winning shot.

      Betty wears a red tartan mini skirt with pretty white inserts and a white bikini style top to cover her rather ample chest. Her tiny hands are protected with her cute white golfing gloves to enable her to effectively grip her club.

      The manufacturers have designed this figurine perfectly even down to Betty's shoes, which are normally high-heeled stilettos. However, it is essential that Betty wears the correct footwear in order to protect the green and in this figurine we see her wearing a sensible flat pair of red and white golfing shoes.

      To complete her golfing outfit, Betty wears a white peaked golfing cap that enables her gorgeous black glossy curls to be seen, which are depicted by eight cute points along the top and sides of her head.

      Betty would not be Betty without her jewellery and this figurine shows her wearing a simple pair of gold hooped earrings. Betty's face is identical in every figurine where we see her puckered ruby red lips and her beautiful eyes opened wide to display her long black stunning eyelashes. Whilst I am not a golfer, I absolutely adore this figurine and she has been carefully placed in one of my display cabinets with the rest of my beautiful collection.

      If you are interested in Betty Boop Golfer, I would advise that she is currently available from Amazon for £39.95 plus £4.95 postage and packing. When I first started purchasing my Betty Boop figurines I would always avoid mail order, as I was worried that the delicate pieces would be damaged in transit. However, other than some careless ebayers who had inadequately protected the packages, I can say that I have never had any problems whatsoever with using mail order companies who in my experience, always carefully package all of the delicate figurines.

      As this figurine is so perfect and a reminder that I am now another year older, it receives 5 out of 5 dooyoo stars from me.

      I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
