June 2013

The 2013 main line Poppy Parker dolls were debuted in a webinar event on March 30, 2013.  It featured a set of five dolls that represented different countries/regions: India, Polynesia, Japan, Switzerland and Spain. The multi-ethnic theme was reflective of the overall theme for this year's Poppy collection:  The 1964-65 World's Fair held in New York City.  

Polynesia had the same right-glancing eye screening as "Holiday in the Hamptons" and "Dream Teen," among others.  She had applied eyelashes.  Her eyes were dark brown, with purple eyeshadow.  Her lips were pale pink.  Her skin color was a shade darker than the usual Poppy Parker "Caucasian" skintone ... the same skintone as "Hot Dots" and "Sunshine Games." She had long, wavy raven hair left in a loose style.

Her outfit was a pale blue, lavender and white floral print one-piece bathing suit, with a separate wrap skirt over the top.  She had lavender sandals and a matching clutch purse, and a short, Asian-inspired royal blue coat to wear over her outfit.  She came with a white flower in her hair, a gorgeous blue-and-gold bead necklace, and two bracelets: one gold and one blue.

She did not come with earrings or pantyhose.
