Clara-Marie Petite from The Nutcracker Collection, is the adorable 12" version of our signature doll!
Whether you're a young ballerina, a ballet enthusiast, or a doll collector, you'll fall in love with the Petite version of Clara-Marie.
The leading lady from Mark Erickson's unique version of The Nutcracker comes to life in this fully-articulated poseable 12" doll. She has a fair complexion, long, wavy auburn hair with bangs, and big blue eyes. Her face is lightly made-up, reflecting the character's youth. Since Clara-Marie is seventeen years old in the ballet, she has a young girl's figure.
The same beautiful doll, just in a smaller size!
Petite dolls look younger than full-sized MBDs, with thinner bodies, more youthful faces, and shorter skirts. You could describe their faces as cute rather than beautiful, like the bigger girls. They also are much less expensive than their big sisters. Selling at a quarter of the price of full-sized Ballerina Dolls, Petites fit into any budget!
The smaller size also makes them the perfect choice for younger children. Little hands will have an easier time handling the foot-tall doll, and the smaller price tag will ease your worries about an expensive toy getting damaged!
She still wears an exquisite costume.
Like her full-sized counterpart, Clara-Marie Petite is dressed for a Christmas Eve dream in her lavender nightgown, which is decorated with white lace. It has long white lace sleeves and a three-tiered chiffon skirt, which reaches below her knees. Her hair is decorated with a faux pearl barrette and lavender satin ribbons, matching those on her dress. White cotton panties keep her modest while dancing. Her pink satin Ballet Boots, which lace up in the front, combine the ballet aesthetic of pointe shoes with the warmth and durability of Victorian boots.
Like all our dolls, Clara-Marie Petite is crafted for beauty today and durability tomorrow.
Her skin looks like fine porcelain, but it is actually vinyl, which won't chip from normal play patterns.
Her hair is long, silky, and easily styleable; the wig is embedded. She has a removable headcap, so you can conveniently give Clara-Marie a new look by attaching a different wig or replacing her eyes.
Her fully articulated, hard plastic body makes her more than just a toy. Her intricately formed joints mimic the human body's design, so she moves and poses just like a real ballet dancer.
Her costume has a Velcro closure at the back, so she can be easily undressed. The costumes for all Petite MBDs are interchangeable, so you can collect more ballet costumes for your doll. Clara-Marie Petite will also fit in clothes made for any 12" BJDs.
Collectors love My Ballerina Dolls, but Clara-Marie Petite wasn't made exclusively for a display case. All our dolls are sturdy enough to be lovingly played with by children of all ages.
