Super Mermalade review). Elfa is green and yellow, which happen to be my old high school's colors. But anyway, Zelfs live in a far-away, super-secret garden called Zardinia. Each Zelf has his or her own personality and strength, a strength which the owner can supposedly also have if they believe enough in themselves (or theirzelfs, as the Zelfs put it). Zelfs come in three different sizes: super, medium, and small (or Lil'). Super Zelfs are four inches tall, Medium Zelfs are about two and a quarter inches, and Lil' Zelfs appear to be an inch and a half tall. My Elfa is a Medium Zelf.
Before I get into the doll herself I'm going to address the collectors' leaflet that comes with her. The leaflet is cute too, by the way...it's a leaflet of paper and it's in the shape of a leaf (thank you Beastsbelle, for pointing this out!)
Now, Elfa herself! She has lemon yellow vinyl and painted features.
Angelala the Angel Zelf for an example of this).
On top of Elfa's head is...well, hair! She has dark green and light green hair that stands straight up.
Elfa's body is jointed at the neck, shoulders, and hips. She has only rotational motion at these joints. This cuts down on posability quite a bit, but she can still strike a few cute poses. She can sit:

Elfa's build is chubby. She has a thick little torso and a tummy that sticks out a bit.
other Zelfs, but it's still cute. Her tummy has green leaves and red blossoms painted on it, her legs have green vines, and her feet are solid green all the way around.
Oh yes, Elfa also has a Zelf mark painted on her tushie.
Elfa came with a couple of other accessories in addition to that leaflet. She came with a cute leaf-shaped comb:
I'm not going to do a good news/bad news section on Elfa, because there's very little to say about her that's bad. The only thing I found that might be an issue for some folks would be her nudity. But as I stated above, she's not really showing anything off that's inappropriate; her little tushie is more cute than anything. Oh yes, she's also a hair stiff, but she's got more joints than the average troll doll does. Aside from those things Elfa is a simple but delightful addition to my doll family. She's colorful, she's cute, she's expressive, and she's surprisingly versatile. As small as she is, I can even use her as a prop for my other dolls.
God bless y'all,
