Nora, How are you? Both these dolls are full of sand, the girl doll lays straight the boy doll curves with his head on his own shoulder. He actually curls into the girl like twins. They both have real detailed private parts. The girl weighs about 7.5 Lb the boy is heavier. I have never seen these dolls anywhere else, I think they might be German.
