Elle Magazine Dolls

Elle Magazine Dolls by Jakks Pacific

Jakks Pacific produced a small range of 15.5" fashion dolls for ELLE fashion magazine. Originally released in 1999/2000, they retailed around the $25 mark in the US and Canada. From what I have read there were two face molds used, chiefly changing the shape of the nose, and the majority were white with blonde, red, or brunette hair. There were also black dolls but they seem to be pretty rare now.

I had never heard of them until stumbling across an eBay listing, and Google has been singularly unforthcoming. With the lack of extant promo pics the pictures here all come from sales listings, either on eBay or at Dollexpo.fr.

'Express your primitive instincts with A Walk on the Wildside featuring exotic animal prints and a clothing trunk and make-up case - vital essentials for the girl on the go!'

The dolls originally retailed for $29.99, the slightly higher price reflecting their luggage accessories. There is a video review of the second doll over at The Doll Circle.
