Our only male doll, The Nutcracker / Prince Nicholas from The Nutcracker Collection, is a perfect fairytale prince!
Whether you're a young ballet dancer, a ballet enthusiast, or a doll collector, you'll fall in love with Prince Nicholas.
The leading man from Mark Erickson's unique version of The Nutcracker comes to life in this fully-articulated poseable 21" doll. He has a fair complexion, blond hair in a pageboy cut, and piercing blue eyes. His classically masculine features are enhanced with light stage makeup. His body differs from the female dolls' to represent the physique of a trained danseur (male ballet dancer).
You get two characters for the price of one when you buy this doll. The Prince Nicholas doll comes with a molded hard plastic Nutcracker helmet. This beautifully painted headpiece covers his whole head and neck, transforming him into The Nutcracker of the evil Drosselmeyer's spell! This helmet features painted on facial features, including teeth and a black mustache, plus a raised nose. It also includes white synthetic hair and a gold military hat. Remove the helmet to see the handsome prince!
Prince Nicholas is wearing his soldier-like Nutcracker costume. The coat is made of dark blue and red velour with a white panel down the front. It's decorated with red shoulder pads, trimmed with gold tassels, and silver buttons. He wears white velour pants, evoking the classic danseur attire of white tights, which are also decorated with silver buttons. He wears sturdy black faux leather boots, which lace up in the back.
Like all our dolls, Prince Nicholas is crafted for beauty today and durability tomorrow.
His skin looks like fine porcelain, but it is actually vinyl, which won't chip from normal play patterns.
His soft hair is a wig, which is attached to his head with Velcro, so you can conveniently give Prince Nicholas a new look by attaching a different wig. He also features a removable headcap, so you can easily open the head to put in new eyes.
His fully articulated, hard plastic body makes him more than just a toy. His intricately formed joints mimic the human body's design, so he moves and poses just like a real ballet dancer.
His costume has a Velcro closure at the back, so he can be easily undressed. Prince Nicholas will also fit in clothes made for male 21" Ball Jointed Dolls.

Hoffman, adding original story ideas from Mark Erickson's version of the ballet. The book is vividly illustrated by Lisa Owen-Lynch.
