  • 2016 Holiday Barbies

    For the 2016 Holiday Barbies, Mattel went in a slightly different direction. Instead of one fancy, elaborate doll, they instead came out with three dolls, in more simple gowns in three different colors, and each with rather different faces. They were each sold individually, with boxes shaped like snow globes they’re standing within. They are considered the Peace – Hope – Love Collection. Depending on the store, some kept the price point the same as the normal Holiday Barbies, whereas others cut the price down almost in half. And unlike previous years, they actually seemed to sell out before Christmas. Did anyone manage to find these Holiday Barbies? If so, please bring them to a meeting, as we would love to see them!

Or even just dress up your dolls…for this month, any kind of doll goes for show and tell, so have fun with it! The meeting is on October 23rd, same place and time as always.

    We’re looking forward to seeing you there, so come one, come all, we’ll have a ball!

  • March Meeting Change Up!

    So if you haven’t already figured it out…our normal March meeting day would fall on Easter Sunday, so to avoid that confusion and overlap, the March meeting has been moved to Sunday, April 3rd. We will still have our normal April meeting later that month. So mark your calendars, enjoy the warming weather, and we hope to see you there!

It’s from 10am to 4pm. Admission is $5, with kids 12 and under getting in for free….so grab your girls, girlfriends or little girls, or even guys, and have some fun!

  • Signature Collection Frozen Dolls

    Not that Frozen items need to be contained to winter, but these dolls are out in time for the colder weather. This is the first two set they’ve released with the Signature Collection Disney dolls [available at Walmart, that I know of for sure]. They’ve previously done with some princesses, and some corresponding villains. But this time, it’s all about Elsa and Anna.

  • Collector Draculaura

    There’s a new Collector’s Edition Draculaura doll that’s now out. She has real eyelashes, lacey top hat, and her dress has bat wings, and a pretty little parasol. Despite what the images show, the dolls do have the trademark heart on her cheek. It’s a beautiful doll, but one that’s best to see in person to take in all the details. She comes in a coffin shaped box. I believe it’s between $70-$80.
