Butterfly Ring 2001
(Thomas Boland Company/Spellbound Dolls - designed by Sandra Bilotto)


There are 7 dolls for this year.  They will be produced as an annual edition and retired at the end of 2001.  The first 6 are expected to ship in March/April, and the 7th (a bride doll) will ship in June.

In keeping with the butterfly theme, all of the dolls have butterflies in various parts of their attire - jewelry charms, hair ornaments, beading design, etc. Tasha even has a butterfly tattoo on her derriere.  All of the dolls have panties with an embroidered butterfly and there is a butterfly inside the lining of the gowns.  The stand in a translucent pink sparkle butterfly shape with loose "gems" inside the base.  The dolls come with a necklace for the collector - a flexible wire necklace with a butterfly charm.  The packaging is simple and fairly compact - a narrow aqua shoebox style box with a butterfly cut-out where you can see the doll's face.

Among the nice details of the clothing are chains on the inside of cloaks/dresses, so you can hang them up and a label with washing instructions.  Some of the dolls have pantyhose, some have stockings.  All of them have panties.

2 of the dolls have ribbon tie shoes (Gigi and Jaclyn) and the others have very nice elegant styles.  Their feet have a high arch, so they will not be able to share shoes with other 15" - 16" fashion dolls.  These dolls also seem to be especially thin in the waist, so they may not be able to share clothing either.

The legs are beautifully sculpted.  They have a very high arch, which will make shoe-sharing impossible with the other fashion dolls.
