Today I went looking for a replacement doll for Aria, since her foot has mysteriously broken off and disappeared somewhere. I found four Made to Move dolls that would do just fine, but I couldn’t bring myself to spend $19 on something I didn’t really need. Here’s some other stuff I saw. At Big W, I found… Continue reading Barbie Selection at Big W, Target and Kmart
You might remember my excitement when I noticed the late 2016 Fashionistas appearing on the shelves in October-ish? Anyway, it’s now November and there are very little Fashionistas in sight! I visited four different Barbie-selling shops in the last few days, and only one of them had Fashionistas! So that’s a negative. But on the… Continue reading Questioning the Magic Donkey -Lack of Fashionistas in November and Some Other Thoughts
It’s bitterly cold, the kind of cold that sweeps under your jacket sleeves and pounds at your face. I have just returned from a shopping trip, and in my bag lies a brand-new Barbie doll. I actually have no idea what she’s called (even after much Internet-scouring), because I couldn’t find her anywhere. No images.… Continue reading Ice, Ice, Barbie -Pink Passport Ski Doll

I discovered the reason I have a camper from way back then is because my mother bought it before she even knew she… Continue reading Let’s Go to Target (Again!)
It was my birthday! My sister got me Made to Move Lea. Isn’t she lovely? She looks a bit older than my other dolls, so I made her Neko’s older sister and a teacher at the school. I named her Tori, which I think means ‘bird’ in Japanese. It matches with Neko, which I think… Continue reading Time for School
Ta-da! My new Teresa Made to Move, for $25 (17.56USD, 12.90 Pounds, 16.09 Euros). I really, really wanted Nikki but I haven’t seen her at all so far. I was very close to walking away, as I didn’t see the fuss in a generic (articulated, but still) doll with very plain clothing and no accessories.… Continue reading I finally understand.
