  • Holiday Barbie 2018

    It’s a special year for Holiday Barbies, as it’s the 30th anniversary of when the first one came out in 1988. As a tribute to the first ever Holiday Barbie, they gave this year’s doll a red dress made of tulle, though in a different style (she needs to keep up with current styles, after all! It just wouldn’t be Barbie fashion if she didn’t). This year’s doll is available in three different skin tones, and each of the three has their own unique hairstyle. The pictures were just recently released, so enjoy your first look at this year’s Holiday Barbie!

     

     


  • Royal Romance

    As talk of the Royal Wedding Of Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle continues, I thought I would share with you the bisque porcelain dolls available from Ashton Drake, and sold through the Bradford Exchange. Meghan is the Royal Romance Bride, and Harry is the Royal Romance Groom, which are both posable. They are for sale individually, for $179.99 each. You can pre-order or reserve your’s today, though it seems they won’t be shipped until December 31st.

     

    If you would like to see more pictures of the dolls, including some close up shots of some of the details or wish to order one, just go to the website listed on the image, and you’ll find them there.


  • KP Doll Display

    Though this is long overdue, I wanted to follow up on the doll display at Kildonan Place mall in June. I was able to go check it out, and also spoke to Diane Willey, who had put together the display. In a twist of fate, it turns out, she is a former member of the Manitoba Doll Club! Some of you may have known that, but I wasn’t aware of that prior to going. She had a beautiful assortment of dolls on display. I heard some of you were able to go, but for those who weren’t able to, or anyone who would like to have another look, here are some pictures of the dolls displayed that day.

    Diane also has a doll museum, which I’ve included information for, for anyone who is interested. If the writing is too hard to make out, and you would like the information, just ask.
