Holiday Barbie AA 2014

When the 2014 Holiday Barbie was first revealed everybody started asking about the AA version because the caucazian one was (well is) kind of boring. Mattel Shop has just uploaded both versions and the AA one is stunning!

Don’t care a lot for the dress but this lady will definetly look perfect redressed in a fierce and elegant fashion. I would even rebody her.
What are your thoughts?

Ballet Wishes Barbie 2014

The new Ballet Wishes Barbie 2014 can be now bought on Target.com. A few days ago I saw just a small image of her and was not impressed. Ok, to be perfectly honest I thought she was a disaster. Why? Because I’m sick of pink ballerinas with a Mackie face! I would love something more edgy, more extravagant. I’ve been told she is the perfect doll for an older child that wants to start a collection and I agree. But then again…pink? :(

Anyway, looking at these HQ images she doesn’t look that bad and for $24.99 she’s a good deal.

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.

New Spring 2014 Barbie Collector sneaks

New dolls have been sneaked on BFC today. I’m not going to post images (you can already see them online if you know where to look) but let me share my thoughts about them.

2014 news

*Fan made image. Not official.

There are threee new OZ dolls: Tin Man, Scare Crow and the Lion. B-O-R-I-N-G! I don’t even have to show you the images because they look almost the same as the 2009 dolls. :( So dissapointing. I’m sorry for saying this, but this is just crazy.

*These are images of the 2009 collection, not the 2014 one.

There’s also a very cute girl designed by Bill Greening, dressed in pink and holding a pink teddy bear. I like her but I must say I’m underwhelmed by these sneaks. Let’s hope the next sneaked dolls will be nicer.

Magia 2000 tribute to Dolce & Gabbana FW2013 Alta Moda

Inspired by the wonderful FW 2013 Haute Couture collections by Dolce & Gabbana, this amazing OOAK Barbie doll by Magia 2000 was a gift for the talented Mr. Stefano Gabanna as a Christmas gift.

Here’s what Mario and Gianni from Magia 2000 had to say about her:

Mixed with a inspired Bianca Balti face painting, she wears a silk satin , fully printed and customized with a portion of the Canaletto’s painting, replica of the original dress of the Dg collection, lined with black georgette.
the printing of this fabric took several tests, to achieve the correct size for the doll and match the pieces of the wide ballgown. She also wears a black silk chiffon hooded cloak, fully hand encrusted with French blakc lace in different sizes.
She holds a custom Venitian mask, we created with papier marchier technique and hand embroidered with tiny pearls in whiote and gold colour, flowers and feathers.
Earrings have been custominzed with replica of the painting with matching coral color beads and clear crystals on gold base.

She has been completely repainted with professional acrylic colours and sealing.
A new elaborated hairstyle and fine matching jewellery set.

Two new Barbie cars for 2014

Hi, guys! Just a quick post to show you some new Barbie cars that just came out.
First we have the Barbie Sisters Safari Cruiser that looks nice but definetly not special enough for $19.99. I’ve seen sooooooooooo many Barbie cruisers over the years that they just bore me to death right now.

The second car is a new version of the classic Barbie Glam Convertible that retails at $14.99. Good price but I would really like a car that doesn’t make Barbie look like a giant in it. Can you please respect the scale of the doll and create a car suitable for her hight? :D
