Tamika and Darrin!

Hey Gang!

A few months ago I found Tamika and Darrin in K-Marts.  I wasn't looking
for them but when new items you haven't seen before fall into your lap,
what are you to do? I showed them at our doll club meeting but I didn't post
them.  So her is their post! 

Tamika!

Tamika has had a head sculpt change. She has a brown version of the
smiling Chelsea doll face.

She comes with a hula hoop!  I do think hula hoops are still popular
because I still see them in stores.  The hit their heyday around 1958. I have
attached a link to some info if you are interested! 

Darrin!

Darrin is the first boy of this size in the Chelsea line.  There have been
boys who have been smaller or taller and AA but none this size that weren't
AA.

Darrin comes wearing a green and white baseball shirt with a T and
soccer ball on it, black pants shoes and a  Pink hat. OK, why? Why not
green or blue or white? I'll have to fix that!  He also came with a
soccer ball.

OK, Thanks For Looking!

Minis Are The New Black!

Hey Gang!

After falling in love with my AG Minis, I started looking around for other minis. 
Because well....minis are the new black!

I found some Collectors Lane Mini dolls on line.  If you have seen the new Our
Generation mini dolls, these dolls were the predecessor of those dolls at Target
and another Target exclusive.

Jacket off -tee and necklace!
Rachel in undies! The undies for these dolls are nice!
Great socks and shoes too!
The have glued on wigs and not rooted hair.

The hair isn't very soft either.
In this shot you can see the cap.
I was told that the larger dolls had wigs too!  I hope the air was better.
On all my mini dolls something about 
the tag bothered me.  It had to go!
Comparison to AG Minis!
AG's are taller!
AG Ivy---CL Sheri
The torso is a little shorter and the legs are shorter too! 
They are close to the same size

Jackets and bags
To me...it looks like the bag with the pink jacket should be 
with the green jacket and vice versa.
Hats and skirts both with really nice details!

Vanessa! She came today in the mail.
Without the plastic
Great hat and Jacket!
Great eyes! The hair ...not so much.
The whole outfit!

From the back

You might notice that these doll don't have lashes.  Not even painted on lashes.
It kinda hardens their look.  So I read on  Snickerdoodle Street that you can make
these dolls into boys!  We always need some guys around here so I did!
I gave them a hair cut and style and viola!
He is now Martin.
 Ned, Martin and Jack!
As always finding clothes will be somewhat of an issue.  I will work it out.

OK, next is my new Our Generation dolls!

 Sienna
 Lana
 Holly

Moxie Girls Mini dolls!

 I got one of the few dolls that had an AA face with and AA body.
 Most looked like this one where the body is a different complexion.

So here is what I purchased!

 I purchase two Siennas. One I plan to make a boy
and the other I will keep as is.
 I got this two also.  The blonde will be a boy also.
I just love this redhead!  The clothes on these dolls
are so well done for the size! 
I just love the tights!
Ryla & Holly


  I can use the clothes and shoes for other dolls.
 There was a stain behind her ear where the band was.
I will show you pictures of Holly after her make over.

 Our Generation, Collectors Lane and American Girls!
Holly, Martin and Addy
 

Moxie Girl Mini

I look forward to adding her to my other smaller dolls.

 Out of the box, her head is large but she has a cute face!
 Here part is off centered but so is mine when I put it into ponytails too!
 I tried some other dress on her.  She looks so cute.  "See you later!"

OK, Thanks For Looking!
