Summer in the tropics: Sous les Tropiques Victoire Roux IT-Direct exclusive

W Club members were alerted a couple of weeks ago with a sneak peek preview email, where one could see snippets of parts of a doll that would be unveiled soon. Today is the day and the doll is another Victoire Roux available via two lotteries: one for the W Club and one for the general public. The club members are entering for part of the edition specially reserved for them and the lottery is at the end of the month. For everyone else, all you need to do is email Integrity Toys with your name and address for details on how to enter - lottery will be on the 15th of September.

"Sous Les Tropiques" Victoire Roux™ is a fully articulated 12-inch vinyl doll with a rooted hairstyle. This basic Victoire Roux doll is sporting a turquoise and brown floral bikini with a coordinated sleeveless robe. Her accessories include a beach bag, earrings, bracelets, headband and sandals! A doll stand is also included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up.

I really like this one - finally a different hairstyle that is more versatile. It can be worn with either day or evening outfits. The fashion is fun and playful but I'd rather have a more glamorous swimsuit style (a one piece maybe?). She's missing a hat and sunglasses, essential accessories for every sun-bathing lady since time immemorial (or at least the 30s). She will probably snatch them from my other dolls, provided she gets to come here to stay.

  1. Ah, a redhead, my favorite hair color! A one piece swimsuit would perhaps be better indeed, I do love the cute bow on the bikini though :-).

  2. Que preciosidad me encanta sobre todo los complementos. Besossss

  3. Love the red hair, and her accessories. Her bathing suit is really daring!

  4. I can't help buy notice that we are not getting enough items with the doll :( too expensive for a doll with basics, pass!

  5. Absolutely agree with your points in the review. Love the hair and makeup enough to put my name in the lottery, but she does seem very basic. I like it when the outfits are high fashion, though the travel suits are fun (Prêt à Partir was terrific, and her hair wasn't swept back from her forehead). Bathing outfits are generally underwhelming unless they go all out. A dramatic hat, sunglasses, and a wrap are missed opportunities, and the bag looks a little "everyday" for FR. Still, overall very nice.
