Fan BingBing Barbie 2014

Hellen Doll Saga has just announced that Mattel Asia has launched a beautiful Collector Barbie that portraits Chinese actress and singer Fan BingBing.

I think the doll is a true piece of art! As far as I can tell her dress is very well made and is the same that she wore at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. Simply amazing! The doll retails at $145 and most likely she’s an Asian market exclusive. :(

What do you think about this beauty?

Beautiful Malefica (Maleficent) OOAK Barbie

David Bocci is a well know Spanish OOAK artist and the owner of Refugio Rosa and he’s also the creator of the beautiful Reina Nayade doll that I’ve told you about last year.

Today he has launched another great project: a fab Malefica (Maleficent) OOAK Barbie.

I love her costume and the Mackie face mold gives the doll a softer edge even if she still looks fierce and evil. Good job, David! She’s stunning.
You can check out his other creations on his Facebook page.

It’s a boy!

No, it’s not a new Barbie Collector doll or a rumour about a new doll. It’s just my way of telling you that I’m pregnant and I’m going to have a baby boy! :D I’m almost 18 weeks along and this baby is keeping my husband and I afloat in this difficult time.

Latest news and gossip from the dolly world

Hello, everyone.

I’m back blogging on my favorite blog. Well…sort of. I’ll keep things in a low key as wounds are not as easily healed. Anyway I want to send a big shout and thanks to my friend Ľubo Holík for helping me run the Facebook page. He’s one of the greatest and sweetest doll collectors I’ve met since joining this community. Thank you again, Ľubo for your help. :X

Because I’ve been away for almost a week a lot of things have happened in the dolly world so here’s a list of all the major events I’ve missed:

1. New Barbie Collector dolls have been sneak peaked on BFC and some of them have been added later in the shop. LINK to the sneaks. My favorite doll is the new, and very strange, Bob Mackie Princess Stargazer Barbie that I would very much like to add in my collection.
