Ever After High promo images

Mattel has started releasing every day a promo picture of the dolls from the new Ever After High series. The dolls are gorgeous but it seams that they will not be released in the US until 2014. :S That is so weird… I wonder why? I have a feeling that a lot of people will start selling them on eBay at HUGE prices so be prepared for some really cray-cray Ever After High madness.

Ok, now back to the dolls. First up is Raven Queen, the daughter of the Evil Queen.

I have always loved the combination of red and dark hair on dolls so this girl is a must for me. I love the fact that she doesn’t look evil but still has a dark feel about her.

The second doll is Apple White, the daughter of Show White and Raven’s room mate.

I bet this girl will be a hit with kids because of her luch blonde hair. It’s funny that they chose Snow White’s daughter to have blonde hair but I guess it’s a nice surprise.

So, what do you think of these dolls? Are you going to fight to get them?

Dawn’s Debut

by Judy King & Barry Sturgill

The mid-1960s were The Era of the Tiny Doll… Mattel’s Liddle Kiddles, Uneeda’s Pee Wees, Hasbro’s Dolly Darlings and a host of others paved the way for a whole generation of palm-sized playmates…

As the decade drew to a close, New Jersey’s Topper Toys was gearing up to introduce a brand new, petite-but-grownup charmer named Dawn! No stranger to doll fashion, Topper (originally Deluxe Reading Corporation) had a long and successful history with famous ‘n fashionable larger dolls like Candy, Penny Brite, the Go-Gos, Suzy Cute and many others.

At a mere six-and-a-half inches high, this new pint-sized fashionista was barely half the size of her leggy rival Barbie. But despite her small stature, Dawn…

This magazine is a must for any vintage doll collector so be sure to get your copy ASAP.

Real Housewivves of Atlanta Cynthia Bailey Doll

According to RealityTea.com, the One World Doll Project has partenered with Real Housewivves of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey to create a doll that will resemble her.

cynthia-bailey

Stacey McBride-Irby announces:

The One World Doll Project has been approached by many celebrities desiring to have a doll created in their image and Cynthia Bailey was the perfect choice to be our first celebrity collectors doll. Over the next few months, we intend to undertake four of these celebrity doll projects which we anticipate will generate approximately $1.2 million in annual revenue for the company.
Partnerships with celebrities like Cynthia Bailey are a key part of our strategy to create shareholder value and establish The One World Doll Project as a significant first- mover in the underserved multi-cultural doll market.

Well…I have to admit I have mixed feelings about this. I have watched the first seasons of RHOA (yeah..a guilty pleasure of mine :D ) and I like Cynthia but I still think that reality starts are not good role models for…well…anybody. :( I wonder who the other 3 celebrities are?

Who would you like to see turned into a doll?

W Club Exclusive Broadway Magic Jem

Integrity Toys is really killing me with these Jem and The Holograms dolls! I love every one of them so i really should start reconsidering my dolly budget. And the problem is that we have just bought a new apartment so all my family budget will go into that. :( Not a very good time for buying dolls but this one is just saying “Buy me, Ada! BUY ME!” *sigh*.

14042_BMJ_access

14042_BMJ_full_set

Broadway Magic Jem is a W Club Exclusive and comes with a cardboard diorama backdrop which requires assembly (designed by Alain Tremblay), a wireless microphone, a love letter from Rio, tickets and the showbill to her debut show and a ticket to Ellis Island. She’ll retail for $119 and all members of the club must complete their orders until July 17.

Is it just me or the dress really resembles a Barbie Twice as Nice fashion called Double Date?

Barbie Audrey Hepburn Roman Holiday 2013

Hi guys. Just a quick post to show you the promo images of the new Barbie Audrey Hepburn Roman Holiday 2013. I found them on the Coleccionistas de Barbie en España Facebook group so the thankyous go out to them.

barbie roman holiday1

barbie roman holiday2

I’m not really a fan of Barbie dolls inspired by movies of celebrieties but I have to admit this girl is cute. Her face really resembles the actress and the fashion is spot on. If only she had articulation and not that boring Model Muse body. So, so, so sick of it. :(

Safari the new OOAK Barbie by The Black Swan Company

I’ve discovered this amazing OOAK artists some time ago with the help of my dear friend Monica from Coleccionistas de Fashion Dolls en Madrid. The Black Swan Company are Francesco Catalano and Mary Deneb, these incredible artists that have created some iconic OOAK dolls such as the Swan dolls in 2011.

ooak swan barbie

I know there are a lot of great OOAK artists out there but the attention to details, the dark beauty of these ballerinas and their amazing grace, has made me fall in love with their creations. I trully hope one day we’ll see them create a convention doll for Mattel, just like Ninimomo and Magia 2000 have done.

Even though I love their ballerina dolls, I was tottaly blown away by their lates creation, a beautiful Safari Queen that just takes your breath away with her wild, savage beauty.

safari6

Here’s what the artists have to say about her:

The doll is one of a kind, so no more copies will be made and limited to only this one worldwide.

Features total facial paint make-over, unique lioness eyelashes, rooted zebra hair, lined waistcoat and skirt.

The doll has a tribal hairdressing and an interlaced design with long zebra extension and on the top a couture leopard-skin hat with feathers and a brown rose.

Doll wears a gold skirt, fur-lined waistcoat and fur-lined gown. Waistcoat and gown are internally covered with gold sparkling lycra and are fully hand-embroidered with hundreds of brown, topaz and ocher Original Crystal Swarovski, brown sequins and beads.

The Queen carries maybe one of the most spectacular part of the doll, an imperious lion fur coat, very rich and long, as part of the style of our company. No animals were harmed in the making of the fur coat of the doll.

Her boots matches her outifit and are made by tabby fur.

The doll carries a scepter on her left hand, with a sun-idol and long strings embroidered with Swarovski and sequins.

Style of the doll is a mix between wild and fashionable, savage but sophisticated.

The force of the Lion, the agility of the leopard, the power of the tiger and the charm of the zebra gave birth to this Sahara Explorer. Are you ready for the trip?

Outfit is removable.

If you like her just as much as I do, you can bid on her on eBay. The winner will be one lucky collector!

Good luck to you all and I promise I’ll keep you updated with the Black Swan Company’s creations. ;)
