Subject: [Leica] Nathan's PAW 9: Anticipation

I know I used my daughter as a PAW subject only 2 weeks ago, but she 
just keeps providing me with material...

First a bit of background: she had been begging for a doll from a U.S. 
company called American Girl or something like that. I called the 
company to order, only to be told that they could not ship to 
Switzerland because their dolls "did not meet European standards." I 
thought of inquiring what possible poisons the dolls contain which were 
acceptable for American but not European children, but instead I had the 
company ship the doll-and-book set to my family in Florida, who in turn 
sent it on to us. All this made the wait longer for Monica, and her 
first words for 2 weeks upon coming home from school were, "Did it 
arrive?" Well, one day it finally did arrive, and I was ready with my R8 
  when she walked into the house and saw the package. These are the 
resulting pictures. All were taken with Leica R8, 4/35-70mm Vario Elmar, 
Metz flash, on Kodachrome 25 (that is the standard film in my R8).

Here, Monica has just realized what this box is, and is trying to figure 
out how to open it:

Big brother comes to help:

Finally, the box is breached and Monica starts to extract the contents:

The doll is carefully examined...

...and pronounced satisfactory, apparently. This is the main picture:

and comments/critique are always welcome and appreciated.
