This is Sophie Elizabeth , she is a Gotz Sofie made in 2000.She is my only girl from the later Gotz production. She comes in a blue jumpsuit with a wooden hammer, ruler and pencil, to show she is a wood worker or Maintenance person. So she was dressed on Shelly’s, looking very serious and quietly waiting. It took a while for me to give in and buy her but she had patiently waited for it to happen. When she arrived home I promised her that she would not have to wear such boyish clothes unless she wanted too! Sophie is a very quiet girl, happy to stand on the side lines watching what the others are doing, never pushing herself forward but happy when she gets a chance to shine. Here you can see her sweet face, I love that she has brown eyes and blonde hair like my youngest daughter Courtney. She loves this pink smocked dress and the pink socks and shoes. Secretly I think she’s a girly girl not a boyish girl and so never looked happy in her blue jumpsuit! A last look at her pretty pink outfit. Sophie’s been joined by Ava. Ava is one of the older Gotz girl’s here and from the mid 60’s. Ava is a pale skinned brunette Gotz and I found her quite by chance late one evening on US Ebay , fortunately she was on a buy it now price , so I asked if the Lady would sent to UK, luckily she agreed and the deed was done. Her seller who was not a collector of Sasha’s and was selling her on behalf of her husband from a clearance he had done, had fallen in love with this lovely girl and was hoping that she would not sell and then she could keep her, she found her as I do a quite serene looking young girl. She is missing the first row of her fringe and at some time I will have it re rooted but for now , she’s happy to live with it, not being a vain child.
