Besides work being a little crazy today, hearing that Johnny Maestro, lead singer of one of my favorite oldies groups "The Brooklyn Bridge" passed away made me sad, so when leaving for home, I remembered somewhere deep in the recesses of my purse, I still had some Christmas money tucked away. I.thought why not stop at the local department store and treat myself.. So I picked up "I can be Rock Star Barbie", (I liked the outfit) A Fashionista Barbie, and a Barbie Basics No. 9. Feeling a lot better.

Who is she? On the small of her back and on her head she is marked Integrity Toys 1996.
The only original accessory I believe is her earrings. She came to me with her boots, a pair of blue slacks and a short white top. She doesn't have separated fingers. Maybe a Candi Girl?
Her box is crushed, but was able to open carefully and slide her out to take a picture.
Ami is an advertising doll for Medline Isolation Gowns. 2006
Since I took her out, I decided to take a closer look. She has earring holes.(no earrings) Arms are painted green about 3/4 the way to the elbow to represent surgical gloves. She is a brunette with her hair pulled back into a braid. Under her surgical boots, she has on white heels. Legs do not bend.
Her body is solid not one of those very thin plastic dolls.
Ami will stay in her box for now.
Groovy Girls - Manhattan Toy Co.
The reason I bought her was that she reminded me of the character "Fancy Nancy" from Jane O'Connors books. There is a book in the series called "Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy". Only difference is Frenchy the poodle is white not pink.
Steffi will go to work with me to be with my other Fancy Nancy Doll (another Thrift store find).
Welcome to my blog. It's about time I started to blog, but what should I blog about? My passion at this time is finding dolls at thrift stores, flea markets etc. and giving them a second life in my doll collection. I usually buy 11 1/2 inch fashion dolls and accessories but others do creep into my life for one reason or another.
I do buy boxed dolls but have this hang-up about taking them out of the box.
Not an expert on dolls, but I do find information about my finds through books and the internet. Being a former librarian does help in the search.
Would love to talk to other collectors who would like to share information about a particular doll.Thanks for visiting.
