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.

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.
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 ) 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?

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*.
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?

Well it looks like Steffi Love is getting some love from the doll collecting community. I see more and more people interested in her and that makes me happy. Also I’ve seen dolls popping up in US stores.

The dolls are already in stores across Europe so be sure to check out your local toy shop if you like these dolls. I will definetly be buying the Steffi LOVE Minnie Mouse Urban Style dolls and some of the fashion packs. So, so cute!

Simba, the company that creates the lovely Steffi Love doll, has launched a new doll series called Supermodel that consists of 4 characters: Juls, Sara, Bel and Miri. The official synopsis:
Juls, Sara, Bel and Miri are BFFs who show off their skills on the catwalk. The fully moveable supermodels always wear the trendiest clothes, suitable for any season and any event.
They remind me a lot of the Moxie dolls but I quite enjoy their fashions and accesories. I wonder if they fit Barbie… That would be very nice because I so miss the non-pink/no-glitter My Scene and Fashion Fever clothes.
Check out below all the available dolls a this moment and go to the official site for more images and details.

Simba has just posted a few new updates on their Steffi Love product page and I just adore them! The Hello Kitty and Minnie Mouse sets are so cute! I know they copy Mattel and Barbie a lot but they also have a lot of cute original products.

As you may have already seen, I love Steffi Love, the German doll made by Simba. Today I discovered their website has been updated with a tone of fashions, dolls, sets and accesories. I love the fact that they use a lot of articulation for their dolls. Kudos to them! Mattel, please take notes.
On my wish list are the jeans dolls, the animal sets, the coffee shop and the Steffi & Evie sets. Absolut adorbs! Check them out below.

The second wave of Jem and The Holograms dolls are here!
KIMBER BENTON is romantic, rebellious, and emotional, and she sometimes envies the attention that is paid to her big sister, JERRICA BENTON. Ever since she was a child, KIMBER has been writing and playing music. Her father had hoped that she would follow her late mom’s path into music and she did — She writes songs, plays keyboards, and sings backing vocals for The Holograms. She is also the co-owner of Starlight Music with her sister, JERRICA BENTON.
KIMBER BENTON is a fully articulated 12-inch vinyl doll with rooted hair and hand applied eyelashes. Perfectly styled with an awesome 80′s look, KIMBER BENTON comes dressed in her truly outrageous stage costume and includes high-heeled pumps, her true-to-character, ultra-detailed keytar instrument with plug-in amp cable, shoulder strap, doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. For adult collectors 14 and up only!
AJA LEITH was the Benton sisters’ first foster sister. She’s a levelheaded tomboy who enjoys sports, is good with tools, and speaks Chinese (she’s Asian-American). AJA usually drives the Rockin’ Roadster, too. She plays lead guitar in The Holograms!

SHANA ELMSFORD was the second foster sister that the Bentons brought into their home. She’s less confident than the other Holograms, but she not only plays drums, she also designs the girls’ outfits. In fact, at one point, she leaves the band to work full-time as a designer, but eventually returns — and then, switches to play bass guitar! SHANA is one of the most multi-talented HOLOGRAMS!

Thoughts? I’m not overly impressed with them. Cute, I like Anja, but not worth buying right now. I’m saving for the Queen of Costelations.
