Marie Osmond's Adora Belle

Marie Osmond's signature character doll Adora Belle was introduced on QVC in 1991.  Collector's quickly took Adora Belle to their hearts and her popularity continues to climb.  Marie's personal make up artist/hairdresser, Kim Goodwin,  modified Marie's original sculpt to include Ozian characteristics and created adorable costumes as a surprise for Marie who naturally loved them.  In turn, she showed them to Warner Brothers, who was equally enthralled, and here we have one of the most charming Oz doll sets ever created.  The dolls will debut on QVC and then to regular retail a few weeks after.  They are 12" tall and made of porcelain. They come in boxes beautifully illustrated with Oz graphics inside and out.  They are editions of 1500 each.   SRP: $149.95
