Blythe is an 11 1/2 inch tall fashion doll created by Kenner Toys in 1972. Her distinguishing feature is her large eyes that changed color using a pull string. Unfortunately, little girls of the day didn’t quite know what to make of her. Blythe was a bit ahead of her time and she was a spectacular flop.
A few weeks ago I wrote about my Lalaloopsy Mini Dollhouse creation. I started with a plain wood house from Michaels Craft Store and customized the interior for my Mini Lalaloopsy Dolls. This week I’ve been working on finishing the outside of their tiny abode. I left the paint the same bright Watermelon Krylon spray […]
Please join me in welcoming Kitty the Goodreau Ball Jointed Doll to my collection. Goodreau is no longer producing dolls and I believe this is one of the last vinyl styles still available for sale. I did a little research on Goodreau dolls and found that they were created by Paulette Goodreau and the tagline […]
I found some cute things today at Target. I’ve been eyeing these Lil Woodzeez Furniture and Accessory Sets the last couple of times I was in the store so today I thought was the perfect day to buy them. Because ….. I found this cute dollhouse shelf in a pretty shade of pink too. And […]

I’ve seen the Mooshka cloth dolls made by MGA Entertainment (the same company that brings us Bratz, Little Tikes, Lalaloopsy, and lots of other toys) in stores recently. Several times I passed by them at Target and Toys R Us and wasn’t the slightest bit interested. They are cute, but definitely not the type of […]

My newest doll purchase is a Celli Cat doll. This is a Korean brand doll that stands about 8 inches tall and made of vinyl. My doll is Petit Blue No 4, one of the first series in the line. I bought my doll on eBay from a US seller and the doll was advertised […]
Just a few pictures of my Lalaloopsy Mini Doll stand I made today, and then some mini food finds from Michaels Craft Store. I looked online for Mini Lalaloopsy stands for sale, and examples of hand made stands. Pickins are slim. I didn’t find much so I made my own. Here’s the first attempt. I […]
