So finally the factory have sent the pre- ordered dolls so I can get them out to all the patient clients who had ordered their Anouk dolls in advance. This is also my first opportunity to see the beautiful production dolls . I had a slight fear that the production dolls would not match the charm of the prototype sample dolls but they actually do. Each one has her own charming personality just as I had wished. The various skin tones and hair shades are exquisite and there are so many interesting variations, depending on what they are dressed in.
It took three solid days to style, dress, and assemble each package with the relevant accessories, booklets etc but it was finally done and all the dolls went out Thursday, Friday and Saturday (today) this week.
Shipping them out I realised how Anouk has gone Global :-) The packages went out to:
Including England that is 11 countries. I am a happy man indeed :-) :-) I will now of course, be on tenterhooks to hear from my clients! Watch this space!
