Helen from Helen’s Dollsaga has found an auction on Chinese eBay, TaoBao, with what looks like another sample of the Cherry Pie Picnic doll. Looks like it’s a combination of Cherry Pie with some Shamrock Celebration accessories and a never before seen dress.
The seller also has an auction for a nude Queen of The Dark Forest Barbie.
Can’t wait for the Queen to be on sale and I must admit I like Cherry Pie Picnic in a dress rather than in trousers.

Limited edition Extra doll 25 pieces
Convention doll Portugal “”Os saudosos anos 80″
Golden Eternity Barbie has a special meaning for Portuguese collectors as Maria Campos, president of the Portuguese Doll Collector Club and Chairwoman at Official Barbie convention in Portugal, has express herself:
… This is the way we will keep this girl in our hearts: Shining and forever…
We chose our convention theme for this year to be “Os saudosos anos 80″ (the wistful 80’s) as this was the decade that officially introduced Barbie to the Portuguese market and because most of us, Portuguese collectors, played with Barbie dolls then and we have fantastic memories from that decade.
A fact is that decade brought us an exclusive Barbie, made exclusively for the Portuguese market and that’s why “Augustus Barbie” is one of my favorite Barbie dolls from the 80´s. As she is so special, that doll inspired us to create an exclusive limited edition of 25 dolls, initially only for the people who worked with us in the convention this year, but soon we notice that she will be so, but so amazing, that we would love to share this gorgeous with other Portuguese collectors! Special thanks and congratulations to all the lucky ones.
“Golden Eternity” is an actual doll with an 80’s inspiration for the 2nd Portuguese Doll Convention. A golden recreation of one of the most exclusive dolls we have and will surely stay in our hearts forever.
We were lucky to know talented Marcelo Jacob and Mónica Nuñéz last year at Madrid Fashion doll show convention, they offer their help to make something special for us for our party and they did.
As Portuguese collectors know Barbie dolls in the 80´s came and were made in Spain and this is what has happened again with this glorious doll
It is great how Barbie joins people from many countries and helps to make new friends.
We wait for you in Portugal with our arms opened to enjoy our favorite doll.

They also have a page with no image for the TokiDoki 10th Anniversary Barbie doll. Looks like she’ll come out in June and she’ll retail for $89.99. I hope I’ll be able to find out more about the purple doll soon as I’ve heard she’s an European exclusive. Maybe at IDC 2015 we’ll get to know more.
If you follow my Facebook page you have seen the brand new Fashionistas dolls that will come out this year. Fabulous is an understatement and it looks like Mattel is taking things even further. 10 talented designers have been chosen by Vogue Italia and Mattel to design a custom look for each doll.
The 10 looks will be featured in a runway at the Palazzo Morando for Milan Fashion Week, in September. The project is called Barbie Global Beauty. Check out more info and the list of designers assigned to each doll HERE.
I’m sure all of you know Bettina Dorfmann. She is the amazing owner of the largest Barbie collection in the world. Yes, we all envy her.
Today she has launched a book called Barbie Puppen Preisfuhrer 2015/2016 (Barbie Dolls Price Guide) that you can buy for 29,80 € if you send an email at email@example.com – for Herr Meints.
I will order it for sure. Can’t wait to see what dolls are presented in it.
I know I haven’t posted in like a millenium, but mommy life is so busy. But here I am with a brand new and beautiful doll by one of my favourite OOAK doll designers, David Bocci from Refugio Rosa. He has launched last night a brand new collection of goddesses. The first one is the gorgeous Diosa Egipcia.
So subtle and elegant. She is now reserved but tonight a new beauty will be launched: Diosa Hawaiana. Be sure to check out his Facebook page to get a chance to see her first.
A representant from Mattel told the audience at the convention that next year the convention doll will be exclusive to France! I believe that will be the case with other countries also. Yey!!! Thank you Mattel for listening to us.
