That gives mayors several months to get their new island home together before Isabelle shows up to see if they need anything.
Isn’t she wonderful? Nendoroid Isabelle comes with three different faces and several accessories to help make her the perfect assistant. There’s the questioning face. There’s resting puppers face.
