Via Dannii Saumane on The Doll Cafe group we have images of the 2017 Birthday Wishes AA and Hispanic versions. Really, really loving their faces. So sweet! Not crazi about the blonde version, but these looks really cute.
New 2017 Barbie Fashionistas dolls are up on Amazon. As always, I love their design, but I need to see them up close to make up my mind is I like them or not. The dolls are not yet available for purchase, but click on the names and bookmark the links.
Ok… So I’m a bit skeptical. A collector friend (Dannii Saumane) posted on The Doll Cafe forum about two new Fashionistas dolls that have popped up on Amazon. Pretty Popsicles Doll & Pink Tulle Skirt Doll. The problem is they promo images look very messy. Are they real? Click the name of the dolls to go to their pages. I have done some print screens of the pages just in case it turns out they are not real.
browsing Facebook I can across this uber cute doll created by an OOAK designer I haven’t heard of before. The doll is inspired by the now classic Disney movie “Frozen” and she uses one of my favorite Barbie face sculpts. Such a cute girl! You can visit the artist’s page HERE.
Cheryl’s Dolls has the first images of the new Charlotte Olympia Barbie doll and she’s uber cute! Not going to post the images here so that my email inbox will not be gifted with some email from Mattel, but you can check the images out HERE (CLICK).
I love that she’s part of a gift set and that she has a vintage look. Really classy, but a bit on the expensive site. I hope the quality of the fashions and accessories match this price. Not crazy about the gloves because I think this type of gloves always look funny on a doll. It’s like a small child’s gloves are worn by a grownup. Lol. Am I the only one that feels like this? But the rest of the accessories and the box look cute. I’m glad Mattel has made an effort to make a more appealing box. I wonder if the purses open.
Back in February we saw the new Barbie Smart House at the New York Toy Fair and it looks like she will be avaoilable very soon. I found these promo images on ASDA, a UK retailer, and I have to say it looks pretty amazing. Kind of gives me a 1990 Magical Mansion vibe. Kind of because that house is THE house for Barbie. At least IMO.
Go high-tech with the Barbie smarthouse! This two-story home has innovative features designed for a modern girl. Floor sensors recognize where Barbie and her friends are in the house. Embedded speech recognition adds a cool touch. The stairs turn into a slide. And the elevator is motorized! An accompanying app allows further customization. Plus, just as always, it comes with themed backdrops, furniture and accessories – including a glam chandelier – for complete house play.
Disney Store Japan has released images and info about 4 new Disney Designer doll sets and the doll world has lost it. Lol. I’m not a Disney collector but I have admired this series for some timenow. I can totally see why people love and collect them and why they end up selling for big bucks on the secondary market. *cough, cough*

I’m back with your dose of Steffi Love news and today I’m going to show you some great new playsets that are already available. I hope I’ll be able to find them in the stores in my country because they are so very well made and have a lot of accesories.
