Took a peek in Walmart yesterday. Aw man. TAGG Sasha was sold out but had been on for 10 bucks. 10 BUCKS. I cried a little. The leftover FBFs are on for $20 *eyetwitch* A few Yasmins, Jades and an Eitan left. Mum fell in love with the new California Girl Christie so she will probably end up the model for a sewing project she’s doing. She is hoping if she waits, Mattel will come out with some shoe packs to fit the new feet in something that would go with a bridal gown. Gah! Why did they have to make the new feet an entirely different shoe size from the original flat feet? >__<
More Toy Fair photos at ASM.
Harly Quinn doll 😀 They have finally found a doll the thin liped open mouth mold is perfect for. Hmm…shame she’s probably bald under there. It would rock if she actually had blond pigtails!
I missread this box as “Listerine” ^^;;; Man, that’s some vertical hair. Is there a feature connected to it?
The new Bleeding Edge Goth dolls don’t look as nice as the first two series did IMHO. Man, does someone love Storm or what? 😀 She seems to be the only character who is returning for every line. BE is also doing the Princess Ai figures and dolls. The report says that though these prototypes have yellow blond hair it will be changed to a sandy blond when they are produced “as per Tokyo Pop’s request” . WHY? O_O I’d love to know the reason behind it. You’d think they’d WANT the doll to look like the illustrations.

The Angel Food Cake scented scratch and sniff stickers? Or maybe even the scented cupcake doll? Either way, this is a “doll” smell.
If I had a time machine…..

I’d head to the nearest bank and get them to to consolidate the coins into bills then head to a toy store. Upon returning to 2005, my Blythes would be totally mint, NRFB and earn me a bundle on Ebay. Woo!
Over the corse of time, I’d also make a trip to the mid 80’s for Jem, MLP and SSC, one to the early 90’s for the 91′ SSCs (as many Orange Blossoms as I could afford) and then one to a year or two ago and pick up a Bryant before they discontinued him!
(Yeah, I know there could be some side effects and things that could go wrong but this is MY fantasy so I’m going to pretend it would all work out XD)
Just hit 9000 visits!

Ipo’s photo for the Wet & Wild round. Extras here. It was really hard to take. ^.^; You know how plastic balls float in a pool? Will a Bratz head is pretty much like a hollow plastic ball with features and hair. Ipo had to be WEIGHTED to keep her from bobbing to the surface like in that third one on the extra page.
The judges are deliberating now. *crosses fingers* ^__^

Why a Kenner? Maybe somewhere in my mind it seems more plausible that I’ve find an old rare doll somewhere then see a new Takara for sale in a local store. The pink hair is probably one part Mme Rosebud and one part Pullip Moon (it was more her color).

SSC dolls have been rolled back to $9.99 and the 2 pony MLP carry case is $9.94. The new Fruits-ish Fashion Fever Barbies have hit this area. I saw the blue streaked Drew, $12.94 and forced myself to leave without her . I showed her to mum who said she looked “like a wreak” XDD.
Man….the customer service desk area was PACKED with people making layaways. I found myself peering into their carts to see what dolly stuff their kiddies might be recieving this year XD;;
Mattel is discontinuing the Happy Family Line, according to Keeping Ken’s News. I’m kinda hoping to find the grandparents on clearence before they disapear entirely. I had a custom idea that would involve using the Grandmother’s body but wasn’t keen to pay $30ish for her and all the stuff she came with or buy online. Maybe I’ll find a Rosie O’Donnel at a flea market some day and use that insted.
Watched Shrek 2 recently. It’s a danm shame they didn’t release a 12 inch (ogre) Fiona fashion doll. When it comes to a doll with that kinda of body shape, the reason for not making one is that kids won’t buy it. Maybe kids wouldn’t buy an over weight fashion doll that just comes out of no where, but this is PRINCESS FIONA. A pre-established character from a hit movie and it’s sequal. The outfit choices would be a no brainer: her regular green dress and the wedding gown. If they felt like putting out fashion packs like they usually do (and with a totally new body mold it might be a good idea) there are her bathing suit and night gown as a starting point. Blockbuster sold an 8″ doll (seen here) but it would have been nice to see something larger and more widely available. Heck, the local branches didn’t even carry it.
From Bratz World Yahoo:
Cloe, Yasmin and Roxxi from the Treasures line on Ebay
Roxxi’s second outfit is VERY style it Jade. The faded jeans, the black tank (Jade’s had a safety pin) and even the exact pair of shoes. If they had to reuse a pair of shoes, it’s a shame it couldn’t be the ones she came with when she was paired with Phoebe. Those were awsome.

2. Allison and Allysein, a girl and boy set. The girl had long dark blond hair and the boy looks quite a bit like Bryce except he had a double chin and darker eyes.
3. A holiday Sasha. Not in a fluffy ball gown like the Cloe but rather a suit made from dark, vaguely Christmas-y fabric. The sort of thing a business woman might wear to an office party.

Rest of entry:
So, Koby has a little brother named Gunther now. =D I was thinking twins at first but the eyes are bigger and bluer enough that he (1st Koby) looks at least a year younger than Nu Cool Koby. The hair is also side parted and slightly longer in the back with the flocking only on the side part. Mum was oohing over the nifty little details on the clothing (like the zipper on the sweatshirt).
The fashion pack I chose when they asked me was Double Feature. The shoes seem like the peg is smaller than usual…might try them on my girls. Also, it comes with a little, teeny weenie Boyz sized wallet. And the wallet opens. Barbie had a little piece of folded plastic with a decorative button, but this…if you made tiny little dollar bills you could actually put them in. That is way cool..
