The debut Patience doll, Garden Patience, was a gorgeous little redhead with bright green eyes and an amazing, romantic dress. When this doll was announced, I was so wrapped up in other things that I missed the beginning of pre-orders. I want to kick myself now, because this gorgeous little doll sold out in a flash. Unwilling to pay the high secondary market prices for Garden Patience, I had to be, ah, patient and wait for the new dolls to arrive. I was thrilled when a trio of Patience dolls was released for pre-order before Christmas. All of these newer dolls are still available on the Wilde Imagination site, and so I figured that this could be a good time for a review.
The Patience dolls are limited to 300 pieces each and cost over $150. The available dolls are called "Wonderland Patience" (an Alice in Wonderland doll, $169), "Tokyo Patience" (a lovely brown-eyed Japanese girl, $199) and "Ahoy Patience," the doll whose platinum blonde bob and sailor dress tempted me the most:
