American Girl 2022 Sapphire Splendor Collector Doll Review
American Girl fans are going to love the 2022 Sapphire Splendor Collector Doll. This 18-inch Truly Me doll wears an outfit inspired by the opulent plumage of a peacock with gold embellishments, embroidered feathers, and more than 100 Swarovski crystals. It’s a limited-edition doll just for this holiday season, and it’s part of the American Girl Collector Series.
We’ll take a look at this doll from her head to her toes. Her long curly hair is a combination of green, purple, and blue hues. You can place the metal tiara with its blue and purple Swarovski crystal on the doll’s head. The doll’s lifelike violet eyes open and close, and the doll even wears some glitter eye makeup. She wears Swarovski crystal earrings in her pierced ears. Around her neck, the doll wears a teardrop Swarovski crystal necklace with a satin ribbon. The peacock-inspired gown has a taffeta bodice with a sweetheart neckline that is embellished with Swarovski crystals. The gown also has gathered mesh ombre shoulder straps, a gold waistband, an embroidered gold mesh applique at the waistband, and a four-tiered, full-length ombre skirt with taffeta lining. To complete the look, the doll wears iridescent elbow-length gloves, a gold purse with a peacock printed in lavender glitter, and a pair of glittery gold sandals with crisscross ankle straps. And in case you were wondering, yes, the doll wears underwear.
And even the box is different. Instead of coming in a cardboard box, this doll comes in a sturdy purple box with shiny stars printed on it.
Because this is a collector’s doll, it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. There are only 18,000 Sapphire Splendor dolls created worldwide.
Should I get it?
This doll has a lot of cool detail. Even though it is for ages 8 and up, we’re kind of thinking it’s going to appeal more to adult doll collectors. This stunning doll seems made more for display than play. Of course, that’s up to you, and we know a lot of kids who will love Sapphire Splendor’s cool look. However you chose to use this doll (play or display), it makes a wonderful addition to an American Girl collection.
