A promotional doll from 20th Century Fox's movie Anastasia. This is a late 1990s doll imported by Alcone Marketing Group, Irvine, CA. She's 8" tall and made of shiny, hard, vinyl.

The manufacturer of this pair of dolls is not know. They are stamped 1994 and what looks to be either an "AOL" or "HOL". These 7 inch porcelain dolls have cloth bodies and matching boy-girl clothes. Their faces are unique with dark painted on eyes, a subtle pug nose and no mouth showing. They both have a thick dark brown wig and although there is not much detail they are a cute pair. Their boots are painted on and cannot be removed and their clothes are not made to be easily removed. At first glance they vaguely resemble the Precious Moments' face but upon closer examination they really don't. It looks like their faces are complete and the mouth is not suppose to be visible.
