Here is Jane beautifully boxed, I love that her pet Needles, who is a sloth, is hanging onto her staff. It's super cute. The coloring on her box is super amazing. I love the fiery red, black, and purple look. Her cardboard backdrop almost reminds me of a King Kong jungle setting which I really like as well as the feature of it looking as though she has just crossed the bridge behind her. This box really stands out to me, just looking at it sets your mind into creative story mode. I can just imagine her crossing the bridge the with Needles and preparing to defend herself and friends against a dangerous beast with her awesome staff.
Boxed Jane is a complete win, they even made her super kick-ass in her artwork and created an animal print like design along the top. I'm not personally a fan of animal print, but it really suits her.
It's almost a tragedy to destroy the art of this boxed doll, but luckily I have two! Mwahaha.
Jane has lilac purple skin which is new, so it really made me go "ooo ahhh" when I opened her. I think her character is excellently color coordinated There are mulitple shades of red, purple, and blues and they all fit really nicely. her style is definitely one of kind, and she really fits into her own category.
The first big flaw I noticed in my doll is that her hands and upper arms were pretty weak, sometimes they didn't want to support her bag, but they really didn't want to hold her staff, i was only able to get her to hold it in weird ways. I super wish that they had made her stall a stand to help her stand on her own or something, but unfortunately her staff is almost useless when it comes to posing it with her. It's such a huge part of her look it made me sad to realize the pen would just have to sit aside.
What is really cool though, is that her purse actually opens if you want to put a small trinket inside or even some of her accessories! Her bag is my favorite part of this dolls extras honestly, I would probably purchase it, if it were a real purse.
Overall, If I had only purchased one of her I would have been happier keeping her in box as a collector item because I think I enjoyed her a lot more in her box instead of open when I realized I couldn't get her to hold the staff well. She is a beautiful doll, and I'd only recommend opening her if it's for your kids to play with. Not the best for photography, but really beautiful to have on display. Love her.
