After complaining on line to all of you and others on the net
about the quality of the dolls Mattel is putting out, I took my
complaints to the source! I contact Mattel and let them know that
I had issues with the quality of their dolls. I gave them model number
and the issue.
They young lady I talked to was very nice and took down my information
and said that they would send me out a coupon to cover the cost of the
fashionista doll that I complained about!
Here it is!
Hurry Ms. Leo, hurry!
I have had it for a while because my local stores didn't have anything
that I wanted. I have until the end of this month to find something.
I will post what I purchased so that you can see it!
So I too purchased one of those dolls from China! She arrived today!
So here is my actual doll when she arrived!
Close-up of her face!
I paid about $1.90 plus shipping! There were 4 other dolls and she looked to be the
darkest and that is why I order her. Over all, she is not bad for what I paid for her
I thought she might make a good body donor.
The face is kinda cute and the hair isn't too bad. She looks like and upscale version of
a discount doll. Because of the way the hair is styled with a bang and two curly buns,
they saved money by not fully rooting the head.
Her outfit is what you expect from a discount doll. The stitching and the fabric
aren't so good but it is acceptable for the price.
Back of the top and the back of the shorts.
So here she is compared to some of my other dark dolls! As you can see, she is
Her head is larger than Mattel's and is closer to the size of the fresh dolls.
Here she is compared to some of my other dolls. She is darker than Happy Family
Grandma but lighter than my rebodied Francie on a Tiana body. What you may not
notice is that she has a grayer tone to her!
Warning Nude Dolls Ahead!
Here she is out of her clothes so that you can see the body. The body isn't too bad
considering what I paid for it She has a pivotal chest and articulated elbows, wrists
and knees. When my husband walked by while I was taking this picture, he
said this is how he likes his women, wearing a smile and jewelry.
I wanted to try this body on a few other clone doll heads to see if it would work
for them. I put this AA Defa Lucy family doll Mom. It is a little lighter than the body.
I tried the body on this Defa Lucy Sisters Doll and it too is a little lighter than the
body. I could be used for them but not a perfect match. So I might order two
I tried her on the my dollar store clone 2005 AA Barbie Fashion Fever doll and
this one was a good match! This would free up the SIS Kara body I had her on.
It defiantly a keeper for her. Now I have to find all my other clone dolls and check.
My last try for today is on my Irma who is a Lovely Patsy doll I purchased from
Family Dollar store. She is a pretty good match for her too but I will have to
address her head. It has a bit of a wobble to it.
I ordered another body but it does come with a head so I don't know what
Following up on an old post! A while back I did a post called Early Morning Meeting- Teenage Angst and Antics. When I made the post I knew it was too long and should
have been a video! As it turns out, the video is a bit long too. I am just glad to have
I find a doll at the thrift store that I have kinda wanted. I say kinda
because there are dolls that I am saving for (mostly IT male dolls), doll that hoping will
come up for sale ( mostly IT dolls). That I will put in my cart if I find them at a
thrift store. Flo Jo is in that last category.
So, Flo Jo-Florence Griffith Joyner-the women!
Florence Delorez Griffith-Joyner (Born Florence Delorez Griffith December 21, 1959-September 21, 1998), also known as Flo-Jo, was an American track and field athlete. She is considered the fastest woman of all time based on the fact that the world records she set in 1988 for both the 100m and 200m still stand. During the late 1980s she became a popular figure in international track and field because of her record-setting performances and flashy personal style. Griffith Joyner was born and raised in California. She was athletic from a young age. She attended California State University, Northridge (CSUN) and University of California, Los Angeles (UCLS) where she participated in track and field. Griffith Joyner qualified for the 100m 1980 Olympics, although she did not actually compete due to the U.S. boycott. She made her Olympic debut four years latter winning a silver medal. At the 1988 U.S. Olympic trials, Griffith set a new world record in the 100 m. She went on to win three gold medals at the 1988 Olympics. Shortly after the 1988 games, she abruptly retired. After her retirement from athletics, Griffith Joyner remained a pop culture figure though endorsement deals, acting and designing. She died in her sleep as the result of an epileptic seizure in 1998 at the age of 38.
Know for her long and decorated finger nails and....
Flashy and sexy track outfits!
There looks like there was only one version of the doll released. The one
in the outfit above. There were fashions for the doll but I don't have any of
