    Hi, I followed all 3 stated above on Instagram. And the 2018 Doll Convention I simply can’t wait for is the Portugal/Portugese Doll Convention with the Circus theme, I think there are going to be some breathtaking dolls along with Linda Kyaw as attending designer. I really hope I can attend it in 2018!** #IDC #Magia200 #PapusileMele #2018 #PDC #PortugeseDollConvention #CIRCUS

    Hi :) !
    I would like to attend a Romanian dolly convention in 2018. Is there going to be one? Hope so. And all the other conventions you are going to attend to and let us now about it, here on Papusile Mele. :D I love Doll Conventions – even if there’s a virtual tour, when the real one is not possible.
    Congrats for 1200+ followers (ruxtetiu is my account on Insta)!!

    I’m going to my FIRST convention in Paris. I have been waiting for this moment since 1989 when I first realize that there was coventions for dolls.
    I’m so excited even though my health isn’t the best to go for a convention. But I just can’t wait.

    Hi Ada! I am really looking forward to National Barbie convention in Phoenix. Didn’t attend Houston this year and am unable to attend any of the international conventions… Yet! It’s always wonderful to see and meet new Barbie friends including of course Mario and Gianni and hope to meet you. Will you be attending? Oh and since I am commenting here, thanks for posting your findings in your blog. I don’t know how you get the inside scoop on Barbie but it sure is appreciated! XOXO

  • Reply Angie Marx November 27, 2017 at 11:51 pm

    Though not able to enjoy them in person I always love all the information and videos and photos of all the doll conventions. Tonner used to have the most interactive online presence on conventions, but now that’s changed. IT shows the most prototype pictures, because of their vast convention collections. But Barbie remains my main love and there GAW and the National Barbie Doll Collectors Convention have the most coverage. But the Japan and Paris conventions are the first to share the official convention dolls. The one I look most forward to though is the Italian Doll Convention, because for a couple of years people showed videos of the convention (though I don’t know the language) and it gave new information for dolls to come the next year. This convention gives me something to look forward to, and with lack of information from Mattel we can surely need that now ;)
    Thanks so much for the contest!

    Hi. my instagram account is odayakasa. I’d really love to go to Barbie Convention in Japan! There were so many beautiful dools in 2017, and Mattel representated new Fashionista dolls, very few of them go to the Japanese toystores so to order online it’s really great to check up the dollies in real!
