Have you heard about Helena, Your Regency Girl? She is a fantastic addition to our Historical Dolls Collection.
Come behind the scenes with our founder Frances to discuss all things Helena.
Our gorgeous doll Helena is from the Regency era, formally recognised as the decade from from 1811- 1820, but some historians place it during 1795 to 1837.
Why choose the Regency era?
One of the best parts of being a small business brand is that we have a wonderfully close relationship with our community of customers. We always do our best to find out what they want to see from A Girl For All Time next.
Our best ideas often come from our community and Helena is no exception! As well as being a fascinating period of English history, creating a Regency era doll was also by far the most requested period by our customers.
What’s Helena like?
It’s so important to us that our dolls each have their own unique personality so you can properly get to know them. Helena is certainly a fiery character or at least not your typical regency girl, fed up with endless dancing at balls and the social scene.
She would much rather be playing with her cousins, going on adventures and getting into scrapes than sitting nicely at tea parties or learning how to dance properly for her coming out party. How boring that she has to be ‘lady-like’ all the time!
Helena is part of the ‘Ton’, which is part of the upper echelons of English society at the time and is actually short for ‘le bon ton’ which means ‘good manners’ or ‘good form’. Like many of the Ton during the Regency period Helena has elaborate curls and is wearing a straight skirt dress with a scoop neckline.
How do I get my very own Helena?
At A Girl For All Time we are very mindful of our carbon footprint and consciously do not over produce our products but make them in small quantities. We have a select few dolls available at a given time but the supply is limited, so once Helena goes out of stock there is no turning back! So grab her while you still can because these dolls sell fast!
