“ Manufacturer: King Features Syndicate / Type: Collectible dolls „
For those of you who are new to readings my reviews I would advise that I am simply mad about Betty Boop and own over sixty gorgeous figurines. For those of you who have read my previous Betty Boop reviews I can only apologise that this discusses another one of my collectables.
The figurine I am writing about today is a Betty Boop waitress who is dressed in a gorgeous green outfit. In my opinion, this collectable is quite unique, as she is the only Betty Boop I have seen that wears the colour green.
Betty stands at 32 cms in height and is manufactured entirely from resin by Hearst Holdings Inc who own the Betty Boop trademark. On the underside of the base you will see a tiny Betty Boop image together with the name of Hearst Holdings.
Betty stands on a 10 cm diameter circular base, which has been painted a light shade of brown to depict wooden floor tiles with decorative silver studs. She wears a gorgeous green backless low cut top with huge ruffle sleeves and a pair of extremely revealing shorts, which have been "embroidered" with the red initials of "B.B" on the right leg.
Resting on Betty's beautiful black curls is a typical American diner style hat which dips into a point at its' lower section, which again has been "embroidered" with the red initials of "B.B."
Betty holds a black circular tray in her right hand where she is carrying a large brown coffee cup where we can see a mass of white froth, which has been sprinkled with some chocolate powder. There is also a huge yellow cup and saucer on her tray, which has been painted a dark brown on the inside of the cup to resemble that of strong tea.
In Betty's left hand is a brown book with the word "Menu" written on the front in large red lettering. The attention to detail is simply superb, as the manufacturers have even painted dozens of tiny lines between the book covers to create the illusion of individual pages.
In all of the Betty Boop figurines we always see her displaying several items of jewellery and this figurine shows Betty wearing a chunky yellow bangle on both of her tiny wrists and a huge pair of droplet bronze coloured heart earrings.
As Betty is an American waitress, she wears a pair of white roller skates, which have been painted silver on their undersides to depict the metal and they have yellow and silver wheels and yellow laces.
I love this figurine as it stands out from all of the others, particularly as the green clothing is unusual. I purchased this collectable from Amazon with my first Dooyoo voucher and if you are interested in buying this figurine, it is currently retailing for £36.49 plus £4.99 postage and packing. You may think the packing charges are rather excessive, but I would advise that this figurine is extremely heavy as it weighs well over a kilo.
As this is such a gorgeous figurine, it receives 5 out of 5 dooyoo stars from me.
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
