IN THE NEWS: Royal wedding dolls… an ideal gift?Posted: November 23, 2011
What do you think of these quirky Wills and Kate dolls? Admittedly, here at Sell Your Story UK offices we’re not too sure … but we can see the appeal for Royal fans or little girls who want to play at Royal weddings.
In fact, according the manufacturers Arklu Ltd, the dolls have been developed in line with official guidelines laid out by Clarence House and £1 from each doll set sold is being donated to the RNLI lifeboat charity.
Each of the dolls – featuring Wills and Kate in their wedding day outfits – has been dressed and accessorised by leading British designers, including luxury jewellery designers Babette Wasserman and Clogau Gold, celebrated shoe designers Aruna Seth and Jeffery-West, as well as Savile Row tailors Richard West and Kashket and Co and celebrity florist and Fox TV Royal Wedding flowers pundit Judith Blacklock.
Lucie Follett, a spokesperson for Arklu, says: “We have had so much positive feedback about our Royal Wedding dolls, which were launched in world famous London toy store Hamleys.”
The limited edition doll sets – which come with a set and photos so little girls or fans can create their own special day – are usually priced at £79.95. But for one week only – and as part of the Black Friday sales week (which traditionally marks the start of holiday shopping) on Amazon.co.uk – they are priced at £49.95.
