Old Barbie/Ken Bodies and Heads!

Hey Gang!

None of the playline  male dolls from 2017( see below) or 2016  are as nice as the 
older versions of Ken.  Many of the dolls from the 70's on had "real" hair and almost
all had click knees.  I was coming to expect click knee from Mattel.  That is what 
made them better that the knock off/cheap dolls! 

Ken dolls from 2017

Chelsea boy 2017


Ken from 2016

I would have expected "real" hair and articulation on the  Batman, Superman and
Star Trek dolls!  But Nope! 

Batman

 Superman

 Star Trek


Well thank goodness Uhura got real hair!  More on her later!  Were Hunger Games 
and Divergent the last of the "real" hair and articulated doll we can expect for Mattel? 
OK, here is where everyone gasps!

I have been stocking up on articulated bodies for a while! Their price is slowly 
rising! So with none of the Ken dolls this year and last year have articulation
(or click knees) or "real" hair, are older dolls with those features more valuable? 
Have you too noticed issues with the new bodies that should not have passed 
Quality Control?  Hmmmm!  You tell me what you think in the comments and the
poll!


OK, Thanks For Looking!

Video Of The Month!

Hey Gang!

Like I said before, I am a lazy hair girl.  As a think about the spring and summer, and
think about having my hair braided for the summer. I came across this video! I'm not 
really looking for to having my hair done.  It does take a while and cost a sum but
it makes getting through the warm months much easier. 

I can't imagine spend the time on a dolls hair....yet!  

So here is the video!  If you feel inspired and do it, please let me know!




OK, Thanks For Looking!

Quick Post!

Hey Gang!

I found this doll and a few others while looking for holiday stuff! 
I don't even remember purchasing him!
I do know that he is a rare find! He was still in the thrift store
plastic bag priced $2.30. He was nude but I found this outfit
to put him in!
It doesn't look like Mattel will do many more male dolls
with rooted hair. That makes him an even better find!

OK, Thanks For Looking!

Vestis Virum Reddit

Hey Gang!

Vestis Virum Reddit means clothes make the man! (This was one of the first things
I learned in Latin!)  So, is that true?

When you get a new doll or dress an old doll, how much does what he is dressed in 
or what you put him in drives the character or the story?

My Harold didn't come to life until he got his Carhartt overall!
I purchased them on eBay for him!

He just got a new pair of denim overall to add to his work wardrobe. You know
a man can't work hard in the same outfit... well not work hard and smell
good!

So while looking over his new outfit before putting in on him I wondered how much
the outfit made the doll or his story.  Where the guy in the outfit might go to
find what he wants to where.

So here is Allan!


He is a shop at Ralph Lauren kinda guy! He just got a puppy as an early
Christmas present.  He is calling him wiener

Please note that I have repainted his hair and eyes! He feels like a new man.
He is kinda classic, a little roguish and very cute! He comes from money and
likes horses too!

This is Ryan!

He is a hip-hop City Blue kinda guy. He likes graphic novels,
Rihanna!


Ryan: She is the screen saver on my phone! She is so hot!

 He is always looking for new apps for his phone which he often misplaces!

Here is Ramone!

He is a Banana Republic kinda guy. He is an archaeology fellow...
Ramone': Taxi!

with an emphasis on native peoples.

Ramone': Darn it!

He will be shared during his fellowship between Dr. Running Bear


Ramone': Move to a new place always takes some getting use to!


and Dr. Grey at the Museum. 

He loves Indiana Jones, Afro Cuban music and salsa dancing!

Here is Dylan.

He is an Old Navy kinda guy!

He is a social animal! He likes any kind of game! Sports games to card games!
He loves line dancing and Neo Soul music! He is learning to skate and snow board!

Here is Harold in his new overalls!
Harold: Now if I could get a new shirt!

OK, Thanks For Looking!

Video of the Month!

Hey Gang!

If you are like me, you can wait to see Fashionista Hip Hoodie in person! I have
been seeing him on eBay going for big money! I just heard that they are starting
to show up in Walmart!

I found this review from one of my favorite You-tubers Gypsie and Adonis from
Broken Barbie.  So here is a review of the doll!




I purchase an AA TX A&M on eBay for 30.00 over Labor day weekend!  That is
a eBay trick. You are sometimes able to get a low bid on things on holiday while
everyone is celebrating.

OK, Thanks For Looking!
