The hair is made from high quality kankelon hair which is also used for human wigs.
The Australian Girl dolls have only been available since 2008. There are 5 in total with the newest doll Matilda (second from the left in the group doll photo) recently introduced. Each doll has a unique look and personality. As well as a back story that connects them all as friends. The website is very user friendly and full of information on the company, the dolls and the products that are sold by Australian Girl. As I live in Canada you may be wondering how I was able to order one of these dolls. It was very simple, I emailed the company firstname.lastname@example.org.
