Who are Kurhn?

Once in a stationery shop, passing by a small shelf with toys, I accidentally noticed a surprisingly beautiful little doll in the bright box out of the corner of my eye. She was standing next to the Chinese Barbie dolls and was very much like them. But of all the dolls, I noticed exactly her! And the height is like Barbie, and the figure is very similar, and the outfit … But the face! This doll had an amazing face of a teenage girl.
Big gray eyes with fluffy cilia and luxurious brown hair. On the box was written Kurhn. I liked the doll so much that I decided to buy it, especially since it was surprisingly cheap.
At home, I thrilled to open the box. I had similar feelings in my childhood when I was buying new toys. I never thought that at the age of twenty I would again experience such excitement while unpacking a brand new doll. Charming Kurhn is a bit like anime girls – she has big, curious and very beautiful eyes.
I called my girl Malinka, and she settled on my desk shelf. After a couple of months, Malinka became bored, and I persuaded my husband to go to the Children’s World to acquire another Kurhn. In a huge toy store, I learned a lot about these dolls. It turns out that they have more than 20 different faces! You can find almost any: blonde, brunette, brown-haired, red-haired …
These pupae are distinguished by their bodies. There are articulated and non-articulated Kurhn. Hinge pupae are fully mobile, they can be given any position due to the small hinges that are located in their knees, shoulders, elbows! Non-articulated Kurhn less mobile, but they also have hidden hinges in the knees and shoulders. And hinged and non-hinged girls can tilt their head to the side, turn it in different directions, rotate the handles.
Kurhn dolls are produced in series, each of which is united by one theme. Most of all I like Kurhn from the Hip Hop series. They have stunning outfits in the “street style”: red checked pants, sweatshirts with hoods, khaki pants with patch pockets, quilted vests – and all this is 30 cm tall for pupae!
The dolls that conquered me so much, are produced not only in China, under the Chinese brand Kurhn. There is also a Russian analogue – Sonya doll. Sonya is not a fake for Kurhn and is not inferior to her in quality. Some Sony are even more elegant than their Kurhn sisters, especially Sony from the Golden Collection.
In Russia, these pupae are also available in collections. Dolls from the “Golden” and “Magic” collection are chic fabulous outfits, ball gowns. Sonya from the “Girlfriend” series is dressed like school-age coquette girls. And pupae from the Hip Hop series are distinguished by stylish youth clothes. These dolls settled not only on my shelf, but also in the heart. In each of us there is a piece of childhood, and how can you not love these lovely girls Kurhn
