The Wellie Wishers dolls have been leaked.
There are going to be 5 dolls. They all wear galoshes, which is where the name “Wellie” came from. Galoshes are called wellies in the UK. These photos are from Instagram and are from Mattel’s toy fair presentation.
Personally, I don’t care for them, but I’m not the target market.
They remind me of Hopscotch Hill and H4H dolls. They are said to be 16 inches tall and they will cost $60 each.
I think I don’t like them because they don’t scream “American Girl” like all the rest of their products. I like American Girl the way it is now.
