Small Dolls.

This batch of dolls are different from what I normally collect.
These are small. Not happy meal size but smaller than Barbie.

When I was a child, Dawn was one of my favorite dolls. I have a couple Dawn dolls now too. These dolls are ones I have not fully identified. Dawn I KNOW! LOL

This pretty pink butterfly lass I believe is a miniature Barbie. Her wings are cloth, they feel like iron on patches.

This is a Chelsea dressed for halloween. One of these days I need to bring order to her pigtails!

This one, despite the hair, I don’t like her. Too… I can’t even find words to describe her. Not appropriate for a child’s toy. Even if she had clothes on I don’t think I would like her.

Here we have another Chelsea, looks ready for school to me. Her knees are jointed. I have several Chelsea’s and this is the first jointed one!

I don’t know if this is a Barbie or not. Her arms, head and waist move, her legs do not.

This one is similar. Her head does not move. Only her arms do. Her hat seems to also. It is not removable.

Here is one of Chelsea’s friends. I do not know yet which one. I love the red hair and pigtails! I love the freckles!

Another Chelsea doll. Her skirt does not want to stay up.

Here is a Christmas Chelsea! I have seen a picture of this one somewhere.

This one is one of the Barbie family I think. She is wearing a purple label Barbie dress.

Another ready for school Chelsea!

I have no clues on these two… any ideas?

These next 3 are mermaids. I almost did these with the mermaid post.

Love the pink hair!

A mini Merliah?

The last one, a blue one!

OK I have enough Chelsea’s as Helen said to begin a Barbie preschool!

Next time I will do the new batch of princesses, and princes. Then we will begin on the Barbies!

Which was your favorite small doll?
Hugs y’all!

Update and Next Batch of Dolls.

I got a reply to my post on the Bratz forum.
Several of them are not Bratz.

I have 2 Cloe Bratz dolls, Snow Kissed and Desert Jewels.

The bright orange hair is Masquerade Finora Bratz doll.

The Meygan is a Bratz Catz

I have a Totally Polished and a Trend It! Yasmin

Also a Desert Jewels Jade.

The Penn I knew.

Then I have 3 Moxie Girls.

I believe this one is Ida. If so, my assessment of her being like YDS’s girl is spot on. Her motto is…You’re all beautiful. And let no one tell you you’re not! Something my dil firmly believes.

I think this one is Merin.

I believe this one is Avery.

One Vi and Va doll. She is Felicia. She is in her original outfit too.

Much thanks to the Bratz forum, member Happyboy88 for the ids of the Bratz and pointing me in the right direction on the others!

So now lets look at the ones I have not yet found a group for…

This one is an Equestria Girl. I have a miniature one too. This one appears to be Twilight Sparkle.

This doll… is an animation character. I know I have seen her but I can not place her…

This next one… I have a couple like this, HUGE head, tiny skinny body. This one is cute. She is, I guess a seamstress of some kind. She has 2 different earrings on. One is a sewing machine the other is… it looks like a zipper with shears on the end… It tangles in her hair and is annoying! I love the rose in her hair! I can’t find any identifying marks on her and searching for big head small body doesn’t bring her up either…

This one looks like a petite Barbie but she has no marks and feels more rubbery than Barbie. I like her face. When it is time to play, I plan to test her out in some Barbie clothes.Her knees bend and actually click. like my old Barbies!

This one had wings of some kind I think. She has a contraption on her back for them. I just discovered it pulls out!

That means this doll is part of the same line! The contraption fits both dolls.

They both have this hole on the back!

This one looks like her clothes got torn up.
I love the elfin ears. She looks like she should be one of the Bells (Tinkerbell…) but I see no evidence of wings.

This lass has wings, well 1 and ½! Helen since you have one, can you tell me who she is? She also looks like a Bell.

This one with the PINK hair I love. I don’t know why but I think she is adorable. Again, just like the other one, no marks. This one has no earrings but appears to be a princess of some sort.

Here is another of the same line. Again no marks, no earrings.
I love the face on her though and the hair!

This one is a dollar store quality doll. I looked her up and she is just generic. On her back it says Chic. The site is mail order and you order a lot of one item at a time. 12 of this or 24 of that.

This last lass I really like. I love the color of her hair! I also love her sneakers! She has a sweet simple look to her that I prefer in dolls.

So what do you think? Which is your favorite?
Next time I will do the bag of small dolls!

Hugs y’all!

Sparkle Girlz

Among this lot of dolls were several Sparkle Girlz.
I really like these dolls. The ones I got in this lot are really much prettier than the ones I bought new. These dolls have a more … little girl quality to them.

I love this lass’s reddish hair. Her pretty pink and lavender dress is charming. As is her simple face.

This lass, in her jeans and tee, seems to really sparkle. She looks like some one who enjoys life.

This one in her ball gown is adorable. I just need to do somethng with her hair. I ran a comb through it but it seems to need just a little something… more.

With this one, I learned what all those clear slippers were for! I love her wavy mane of golden hair. Just a quick combing put it in decent shape. It reminds me of a GLH book, Job’s Niece where Doris ran a comb through her hair to put it in order. Wish my hair was that simple!

This one has a mane of wavy brown hair, so thick! For supposedly cheap dolls, they are really well done! All of these dresses are gorgeous.

This one’s face looks so bright and cheery! How can such similar faces, done in vinyl manage to send out emotional vibes? Love the pink dress too! So happy!

Another reddish mane! Again a quick combing set it to rights. I think I will experiment with a braid or 2 once I get all the new dolls written up, Once that is done, it will be play time!

This AA lass is gorgeous. Her hair felt softer and silkier than all the others.

I really do like these dolls. One big thing I like is, their hair never seems to get in their eyes. At least so far! I like their simple lines and ease of dressing. The hair is really well rooted too. Plus, while I am not a big fan of the head proportions it does make it easier to comb and style.

The one thing I do not like, is their heads are hard and filled with glue. I know this because I got a couple at the thrift store once, planning to use one of them as a donor body for a Barbie head. Taking the head off is impossible, it breaks the neck, which is why I needed a donor body in the first place!

So which Sparkle Girl is your favorite? I like the AA hair the best though I like the first red head’s face better.

Net time I will post the miscellaneous dolls I can’t identify.
They are not Barbie, Sparkle, Bratz or any other line I have seen before!

Now, because he is adorable, here are some pictures of my GB. We went to a new ice cream place. The Latest Scoop.

Best ice cream on the planet!

Hugs y’all

Ok so Bratz… (A post even for non fans)

Now I will state when Bratz came out I did not like them at all.
Among doll lines they are still not a favorite. However Several of these I just got, are growing on me.
I joined a Bratz forum to try and learn more. Only to find it has been inactive for about 8 months! I guess the cool factor has worn off on them.
However I did find 2 names.

I have Cloe. She is one I am learning to like. Her hat is too fun. Plus, I like the boots. Though mine would need to be flats… or flatz???

I have also identified Masquerade Penn, as a vampire. There might be a shirt for him in the bag of clothes. I haven’t looked closely at it yet.

Another one I really am beginning to like, I call the hippie chic. It is her hair! LOL I LOVE the long hair. She is taller than the rest by a good margin. I found one like her on ebay but she was wearing pink sneakers not these boots. I don’t know which is really hers. She was the only doll with out shoes and these were the only shoes so this is what she got! The ebay person did not give her a name either.*** While looking up the orange haired doll, I did find a picture of Meygan, in this outfit… It was only a head shot, but at least I know who she is…

Next on my getting to like it list is this lass. I can’t find her anywhere, definitively. I have found several that look really close… I haven’t gone over any of these with my comb yet. I like her because she is just clean and simple.

The rest of these, maybe they will grow on me too eventually.

I do like how simple this one is. No bling, just a girl in her jeans. When I was young, I might have even pulled this look together myself. I loved my jeans, boots and tees!

This one… oh my word! That hair! I love it but it is going to be a challenge for sure!

This one too is simple. I like the color combinations and there isn’t any blaring bling with her.

This one I am sure is Bratz. I think it is Megyan. The hair color and the boots are right but I can’t find her in this outfit. This doll is also different in that her legs and arms are articulated. I too love the RED hair!

This one too is getting to me. Such soft colors in her face. While the lips on the Bratz bug me, I have to admit the make up is beautiful. I like the colors in her clothes too. I admit here and now, those pictures women take pooching out their lips, drive me batty. Ladies, it is NOT at all attractive! Then again I don’t like those open mouth poses either…

These next 4 may or may not be Bratz. They have the same stamps on their backs from MGM but they only loosely resemble the Bratz…

This one is shorter than the others and is not peg legged. I read there was a Bratz kids line of shorter dolls… Perhaps she is one of those…

This one does have the peg leg with… feet attached…

These last 2, now that I look at them I wonder.

This one somehow reminds me of an anime character. She really is cute. She also reminds me of my 2nd dil, my youngest’s girl. This doll on Amazon looks like her. The hair isn’t just the right color, but they have on also called Lottie with this color hair…

This one… I was thinking maybe a MH doll. She doesn’t fit though. She has the Bratz style eyes. She is peg legged. However looking over the only Bratz site with character pictures, I can’t find her. The spider and cobweb is more MH-ish…

Now, perhaps it was the packaging they came in. I remember the whole look being one of… I don’t know, when I saw the dolls in the store I thought of them as disgruntled, discontented. I also thought the make up was over the top. However seeing these, no packaging and sitting side by side with my EAH, Barbie and so on, their make up is not so glaring. Actually, compared with several of the outfits for Barbie, these dolls are modest!
Though to be honest, a lot of the modern Barbie stuff, I just don’t like.
So what do you think? Bratz yea or nay?
Next time, I am delving into the Sparkle Girlz! These are prettier than the ones I bought new!
Hugs Y’all!

The Beginning.

So tonight I will do as requested.
One reader asked that I begin with the EAH dolls.
I KNOW 3 of these dolls are EAH.(Cuz I found their direct matches here)
The others I suspect but am not sure.
So I will begin with the not sure ones first.

This little orange haired lass might be a Bratz. I always thought Bratz had peg legs though and she does not. However neither is she slim and jointed like the EAH dolls.

This red haired lass is slim and jointed. However I can not find any doll that looks like her. She looks a bit like Rosabella Beauty. I do not think she is a Bratz. I however have no clue who she is! Maybe a Monster high?

These 3 I know who they are!

Apple White, I have one of her already.

Blondie Locks, Daughter of Goldie Locks

Briar Beauty, daughter of Sleeping Beauty (AKA Aurora)

Ok, now for the clothing puzzle from last night.

Remember this cape?

Now, remember this dress?

Tada, a set! Each from a different sale event! This is why I keep mismatched shoes. Eventually a mate might just appear! Each has a black and white Original Barbie label.

I am tired tonight so this will be all for this time!
Hugs y’all!

Wow, Just Wow!

Ladies do I have a story for you! When I first began sharing my doll stories, I rarely, if ever, found any really cool dolly related items. Now it seems each week I find at least 3 dolls to share. True, they usually need help, but that is what I am doing. Learning how to at least restore a doll to playable condition. I am lucky in that I have a Beloved that not only tolerates my hobby, but actively encourages me in it!
Here we go.
So yesterday I went to my friend’s shop. As usual I ran into Salvation Army on my way.

Where I found this. Yep, I now own a pink Barbie Corvette convertible. It is remote controlled but there was no remote, so I have no control!

Total price? $2.41!

Then I went to Elizabeth’s. She had this waiting.
A newer Barbie trunk. Inside were 9 dolls!
Here they are.
I am not going to do a big post on them tonight. This is just a run down of what I got this weekend.

Why? Well because I answered a facebook ad.
This is what I got!

I have not truly begun sorting yet. There are at least 50 dolls. All in nearly new condition. Of course, as with most dolls I get, some need hair help. None of these are in major distress and all are clean! Plus… there are NO neekid ones!

So far I know there are at least 11 mermaids! There are Bratz, MH, EAH and some I don’t recognize. I think there are even some my scene dolls. Plus guy dolls! Aladdin and one of the Prince Charmings. I think Ella’s.

I am going to sort and take pictures. There are many Disney princesses. So I will sort what I already have, and weed out the imperfect ones, replacing them with these!

Plus, several Chelsea’s. (Used to be Kelly, Barbie’s 5 yo sister.)

OK, besides the dolls, there are 3 horses.

2 Baggies stuffed with shoes.

A baggie stuffed with clothes.

Does this piece look familiar? I will show the answer tomorrow.

2 Mermaid costumes!

A baggie stuffed with accessories!

Plus the first yard sale I hit this morning had this.

A box of Barbie house furniture! Being wicker, I think it will go in the weekend house. I am also thinking of painting it all white.

Until I paint it I will set it up like this. I have foam and other things to make mattresses. This house is now ready for the weekend!

There were 2 real wood pieces too, which I will paint and put in the big house.

Plus this, a jar of Barbie goodies!

All together a big Barbie day!
What should I post about first?
Miscellaneous dolls?
Just to give you a taste of the dolls to come…

Let me know in the comments!

Now I want to correct an impression I left last night. While the Raquelle doll is not my favorite, she gets high marks for being playable. I like her suit, that was what attracted me to her. I notice the fashionista dolls are all made like her. Very hard, though on most their heads move more and easily. I just miss the move-ability of the older dolls.
Hugs y’all!

Which doll is a better value?

For today’s post I did something that for me is, a bit wild!
I went to 3 stores and purchased 5 dolls… at full price…

I went to Walmart, Dollar General and Family Dollar.

I am going to review each of these dolls by 4 criteria. As a collector I look at 3 main things in choosing dolls.
1) Looks. Is the doll pretty? If not pretty is she at least unique in some way (which is why that Robin Williams faced witch dolls came home with me)Does she have obvious seams in her arms and legs?
2) Movement. Does she have joints in good shape? This isn’t as important in dolls that will sit on my shelf. However in dolls for my staging it is a factor.
3) Playability. By this I mean can a child (or impatient adult) undress and redress her easily? Is her hair combable or is it a snarled mess? One reason fashion dolls are so popular is little girls (and little girls at heart) love to shange out fits and shoes. Match purses and so on.

When buying new these 3 criteria are joined by a forth.
Ease of removing it from the box. For dolls I really like, I will make exceptions on this one.

The other day I wrote about a doll I got from dollar tree. I called her Daisy. This doll while cheap was ok. She moved, her clothes were easy on and off as well as they fit Barbie well enough. A bit short, but a seamstress with lace or ribbon can fix that easily enough.

Today I got a “Polly” doll from Family Dollar. Her price tag was $1.75. She came out of her package easily enough. Her hair is a simple straight cut.
Her face is ok. She does have a twist and turn waist.

Her clothes to me are odd. Pink polka dot tank, grey tweed looking shorts and purple heels…

When she sits one of her shoes pops off, they do not fit her well at all. Her knees are ridged.

Getting her shorts off was easy. Sadly the velcro began to come off in the process. Removing the top was a whole other ball game. To remove the top, I had to take her apart. Seriously, I had to remove her arm to get the top off.

Her clothes will not fit Barbie. They do however fit Skipper… sort of. Given that I can not find Skipper clothes I might spend the money on this doll occasionally if she has a super cute outfit on.

Between the 2, I would rather spend the $1 at Dollar tree than the $1.75 at Family Dollar.

Next, from Dollar General I got a Glimma Girls doll. The price is $5. Her box was a bit hard to negotiate. With the help of my exacto knife I got her out!

She is kinda cute. The look on her face says she is not happy with that schmaltzy name. She reminds me of the old puppet shows on TV. Where the heads were always bigger than the bodies… She has a solid waist, no twist and turn (t&t). Her knees flex but do not bend.

I am not going to remove her clothes to try them on Barbie because I am afraid to do so would damage these wing things she has on her back. They are a sort of clear film paper. This would also prevent her hair from being brushed. I don’t see a way to safely remove them. So for playability, she gets low marks.

The next doll I got was a Sparkle Girlz from Walmart. Price $4.94 Her box was a cone she just slid right out after I unbanded her feet.

I like her face. She too has the big head, no t&t waist and her knees barely flex. Her hair is soft and combable. I tried her shoes on Barbie and they did not go on. She reminds me also of those old tv puppets. As well as some sort of scifi space chick. Though not as bimbo like as the ones I showed the other day. On both these dolls, if buying for a child, I would not the spend money. They would be damaged by playing.

Next we have Lovely Patsy, which I found at Family Dollar for $5. Her dress looks to me… 1940sish…I keep expecting to get a whiff of Chanel No.5. The gold just does not set off the silver jewelry or the pink shoes to advantage.

Her knees do bend a tiny bit. No t&t waist. Her dress seems to fit loosely. It is even on Barbie. She has a lovely face and seems to me very playable. Her shoes do fit Barbie.

The last doll I got was Raquelle. I, to keep the competition fair got the $5 one. Honestly I was disappointed. Nothing bends on her. Her face is lovely. She came out of the box easily. They didn’t tag her head to the box.

There is just nothing to this doll. I understand she is meant as a first Barbie. However, they could give her bendable knees and or a t&t waist. Her head doesn’t even slightly tilt like most of my other dolls so she can “look” at the camera. She just stares off into space… Her hair is simple and straight. Her suit is painted on and frankly why I choose her. I liked the suit. Of all the dolls, she was hardest to get to sit up.

She can wear Patsy’s clothes and shoes.

My over all feeling is, if you have $5 to spend on a doll, your money goes better with the Patsy. You get the doll and accessories for the same cost as the cheapest Barbie model.

My ranking for these dolls.
#1 Patsy
#2 Raquelle
#3 Sparkle Girlz
#4 Glimma Girls
#5 Dollar Tree dolls
I wouldn’t even spend money on the Polly doll.
So what am I going to do with these dolls? Well I am seriously considering a Lovely Patsy collection. She and the others will join the shelf dolls. The dollar ones, will go in the pile to donate.
Now tomorrow… I am getting an influx of new to me dolls and accessories… Stay tuned!

Hugs y’all!

Something new…

I did something a little different today.
I had my GB so I couldn’t really get involved in a ton of stuff. He is only 4 and needs a bit of… monitoring.

Okay so I have begun to love the EAH line of dolls. I keep hearing about webisodes (made for web tv shows). I decided to check them out. Each episode is roughly 8 minutes.(at least that is what I found on youtube) I watched the first 3. The first one just set a scene. What EAH is and so on. The next 2 told a story. One, of Apple White (Snow’s daughter) and the next of Raven (the evil queen’s daughter) I actually like Raven. She wants to do right but everyone is telling her she can’t, it isn’t her destiny. There is also Daring Charming, the Prince… but I like his brother, Dexter better. Truthfully, I am not impressed by the story lines. While the dolls are gorgeous and I may collect them, I am just not sure I will continue with the series. If you want to try it out, is is on youtube.

After that my GB came and sat on my lap while I watched several webisodes of Life in the Dream House. A Series on Barbie. These episodes are about 3-4 minutes long. About 20 seconds of that is the opening song.
Now in all my years of playing with Barbie, I NEVER thought of her as a dumb blonde. Never. I always thought of Ken as handsome (relatively) and intelligent. This series… doesn’t. My main goal in watching is to learn the names of the dolls.
I am really displeased with the way Mattel is handling Ken. They have turned him into a regular bozo. He can’t seem to do anything but smile and worship Barbie. Barbie can’t do anything but hair, make up and pose.Come on guys, the woman has had how many careers in her 50 plus years? She has to be smarter than a potato. I always thought of Ken as a sort of Freddy from Scooby Doo. This series treats him as if he were a stooge.

Now they did introduce a couple of characters, Raquelle. She wants to BE Barbie. Sadly she tries just way to hard and not in polite, nice ways. Barbie, for her part tries to let some light shine on Raquelle but it seems to backfire. I don’t like the series, GB had fun asking over an over who the characters were.

Now I want to know when they are coming out with the dark haired Ryan dolls! Sadly he too worships Barbie but at least he is interesting. If you want to watch this show, here is the link.

Ok ready for some dolly fun?

First up are the Twins. I am naming them Natalie and Nicole. They are wearing matching shirts I got in one of my tote purchases. Unfortunately I could not find 2 pairs of matching pants. They are definitely beach dolls, they have the large beach feet, for which I have found NO shoes… yet.

Natalie’s pants are so tight, she can not sit down and keep them on.

Meanwhile Nicole is wearing a more stretchy yoga style pants. While this allows her to sit, it is very bulgy in the back. Not attractive. I will look for something more suitable for them. They need something pink though, due to the streak in their hair!

Next we have Shari, modeling the dollar tree dress and shoes. While it seems too short, most Mattel dresses are about this length anyway. The shoes were a bit of a struggle to get on!

This young lass I found is NOT a Steffi. Steffi was made by Ideal, this is made by Mattel. She is as near as I can find one of the versions of Skipper! (Who now, according to the show, has black hair with a purple stripe)

This AA doll I need to find a name for. What do you think about Tiffany? I believe this doll to be a Sparkle Girl from Walmart. Their bodies fit Barbie and Disney Princess doll clothes, but their heads are much bigger.

Next we have what looks to me like a Raquelle. This doll has a speaker and battery compartment in her back. She is supposed to talk or sing. She is wearing the gown from the doll with many issues, which I have decided to part ways with. She was not a Barbie either.

Here is Teresa. She needs to wear something with orange in it, because of her orange earrings. She is I think one of the bikini babes. I think this because of her large flat feet, aka beach feet. The thing that throws me off is her super curly hair!

Lastly we have Brenda. She looks a lot like Shari, but her joints are much looser. She is wearing a dress I think is too short. Plus it is hard to tie the halter to keep it on. She will change clothes tomorrow I think.

Tomorrow though I might have more dolls… You never know around here!

Hug y’all!

Life intervened…

Sorry about that…
I had not intended to be off for so long. I was feeling badly, a cold that hit my throat hard! Plus had my GB over here during the day. I love him but when you are feeling sick, a rowdy 4 year old is not helpful!

I have today off so I want to do some home keeping and of course some Barbie stuff!

To that end, I got to thinking about it. I can make a bed, and possibly a chair and couch. I can’t make a kitchen or bathroom so… I used some of my birthday Amazon GC and bought them.
I ordered this

I ordered this kitchen.

I had ordered this
living room earlier. I have had it a week or two.

The kitchen and bathroom arrived last night!

I still need to put down the new floor covers in the house but I can do that pretty quickly.

Check out what the bathroom box says… too funny.

The bathroom came together pretty fast. The only disappointment being the wrinkle the mirror came with. Looks like Barbie has a cracked mirror!

These play sets say they are for ages 3 and up. However no 3 year old will be able to make this stuff go together! In fact, if you are not patient, you risk breaking them in the attempt to put them together.

The kitchen was more involved. I have not done any of the stickers. I haven’t even opened the small things yet. I don’t have the… mental fortitude to handle them after putting the big pieces together.

The refrigerator.

Stove and oven

Sink and dish washer.

In the house.

I look forward to staging this with various dolls, just not today!
I have a Barbie estate in the works. The big main house and the weekend townhouse with a camp ground/pool area between.

Here is a look at some of the dollies from the other day.

Remember this lass? She is an original, made in Japan Barbie. I think she is the twist and turn you could get as a trade in.

Until I can locate a correct leg (and figure out how to attach it) I put her head on a different body. This dollie donor had a destroyed head. I put her in this tall collared knit dress to sort of cover up the extra long (at least to me) neck.

Here is Tiana in her correct dress.

Next is this unknown AA lass. I think she might be a sparkle girl, from walmart.
I put her in this purple gown for now. Not sure if she will stay in it or not… yet…

OK this is a short post, I have so much to do today but I know at least one of my readers needed a dolly fix!

Hugs y’all!

Saturday Adventures!

I went driving and what did I see? Two yard sales on Linda Lee. Linda Lee is one of my cross streets.

So From one I found:

Peanuts! Well a trash can. Never used!

From the other I got:

Barbies! A pair of twins even. Which is cool because I have a few outfits that are duplicates! The young lady selling the dollies was up front. “I don’t want to sell any clothes so they are naked”. At least she knows what she wants!

Then I drove way out to Grape Creek, where we moved from. I bought a bag of stuff there.

In it were clothes and shoes.


Including this one with mechanical stuff on her back.

Plus this cute vintage one with issues. Some one glued her head on plus she is missing a foot. I love her face and hair. I may look for boots for her so she can be displayed.

A couple of cute Kelly knock offs.

These 3 are labeled as Lovely Patsy dolls… The ones I have already are much higher quality than these. I wonder which came first…
The 3 look to me like sci fi space bimbos. No idea why.

I hit several sales where I didn’t purchase anything or what I purchased is not for me.

Then I went to a neighborhood sale where I walked down then back up the street and stopped at various houses. (What a day to forget my fitbit!) I got:

A Snoopy

A vintage Barbie with 1 leg. (I am thinking late 60s early 70s)

Another bikini babe

My first Barbie movie. (I have heard this one is really good)A bag of clothing and misc.

A bag of what looks like dolly hair clips.

More clothes.

An O’Ball. I love these. Best baby toy ever! If you ask I will explain.

Then Beloved was on his way home so I came home too.

He took me to Salvation Army where I got:

These dolls. The AA is not a Barbie but is still good quality.

We also went to the bowling alley for lunch.

Then he took me out for ice cream! This stuff is the BEST ice cream I have ever had! It is homemade in the shop. I had Tahitian Vanilla and salted caramel. I don’t ever want to buy any other ice cream!

OK I saved my best set of dolls for last.
He also took me to Goodwill. I don’t usually go to this goodwill because I have never found any dollies there. Today my friend Elizabeth sent me a message that they had dollies, and pictures of them. I left 3 dolls there, 2 Cinderellas and another generic Barbie.

There was Tiana. This one is in perfect shape, no chews or marker on her!

These last 2 are vying for my favorite of the day.

This I think, is Steffi, friend of Skipper. I will definitely do something to tame those curls!

This.. one is… unique… I have no idea how to even look her up…

The body is marked Mattel inc. C 1991 made in China.

The head is marked Bikin Express LTD. China.

I am thinking this is a hybrid… A google search brought up the company and they seem to go with Mattel on ebay but nothing like this! This face reminds me a bit of Robin Williams… She is unique though so she had to come home with me!

Which is your favorite?
What do you think of my choices?

Hugs y’all
