“Götz is known for their high quality in all aspects of the doll from the inside stuffing to the clothes on the outside. One of the features they are most known for is their hair. It is rooted [stitched] directly into the scalp in such a way that it resembles real human hair,” said public relations director for International Playthings, Susan Tice. “This technique allows for a fuller head of hair that is more durable and can withstand many washings and stylings.” The Maxy Muffin dolls are 16.5" soft-bodied dolls that are great for hair play. In fact, these dolls even come with a high-quality brush and two ponytail holders. The brunette Maxy Muffin for 2006 is dressed in a beautiful lightweight pink flowered tunic with pink striped pants.
