Princess of Ireland

Princess of Ireland from the Dolls of the World Series was produced by Mattel in 2001.

This is a hard one.  Only marks on the back are Made in China.  The only thing that might be original are her earrings. Slacks marked Made in China. Has anyone ever seen another doll like this?

Liv Sophie

Sophie was found at the Thrift Store today.  Missing her wig, and her glasses.  She is in her original outfit.
She is marked on her back  Spin Master 2009  China.  Had a few extra wigs so I decided to see how she would look in them.
Sophie as a shoulder length green streaked brunette. 

As a blond with a pink streak.

How about straight black hair. 

Or a curly haired brunette.
Or maybe I will buy her a new wig and a new outfit?

Need advice - what type of doll

My oldest daughter is going to China on a business trip tomorrow.  I would like her to bring me back a doll.
She will be there until July 2nd and will go to many cities.    I thought if she went to Shanghai she could visit the Barbie store, but then thought maybe she could find  a different type of doll not readily available in the U.S.. Any suggestions would be appreciated!  Thanks in advance.

They are approximately 10 inches tall, awfully thin and are jointed at the elbows, knees and wrists.  The website for the dolls is:Monster High  I thought these dolls were unusual, so I thought I would get them all before certain ones are sold out.

Winter Fantasy

Winter Fantasy by Mattel.  Special Edition  1995. She came with her white heels.  She was found boxed at the Thrift Store today.  Since the box was opened, I thought I would take her out for her photo.  There is no rhyme or reason how they price things at this place.  After I found this boxed doll, I was walking down one of the aisles and there was the same Barbie in a plastic bag hanging up.  This one didn't have any shoes, but was priced the same as the boxed doll. Also I could see particles of dust on the bagged doll.   Doesn't make sense to price them the same. 

Peanuts Gang

5 inches tall. From 2002 manufactured by PMI (PlayingMantis)
Peppermint Patty, Sally, Lucy in a blue dress, Linus, and Lucy in a Red Dress. 
No Charlie Brown, but found him in another form at a garage sale I stopped at before coming home. Will post tomorrow.

Fashionista Sporty

Today I was able to get out of the house early for a change.  Went to the Flea Market, but only picked up a Jade Bratz with some clothes.  So my big decision for the day was which way to go the the thrift shop.  Did I want to stop at Target or Toys R Us?   TRU's won.  I knew two of the new Barbie Basic dolls were out. They are Collection 001.5  Model 13 and 6.  But TRU's didn't have them. So I walked down  the aisle and saw the Sporty Barbie Fashionista. (2009).  Thought that would satisfy my disappointment of not finding the new Barbie Basic.  So I picked it up, turned around and saw something that I have seen in articles and I wanted.  Thought I would only take one, but wound up getting them all for fear that if I didn't get them today
they would be harder to find weeks later. So I walked out of TRU's  with 4 new dolls, the gift set and the brunette Fashionista.  Off to the thrift store. Will post pictures of my new dolls tomorrow.

Found Happy Family Midge -2004 at the Flea Market this afternoon.  Not original outfit, no label in dress. 

Do you recognize me- 2?

Took a half day of work today because I had to see the doctor.   Had some time before the appointment, so I decided to stop at the Flea Market.  Found this Barbie marked 1991 on the neck. and Made in Indonesia on her back.  She was wearing a different outfit which didn't seem to be her original outfit, so I quickly took this out of my stash of clothes.  Never realized this was a vintage black label Barbie dress.   Will have to try to find out the name. . Barbie's ponytail is stiff. Necklace and earrings are original. Missing ring. Any ideas who I may be?

Marked on the head 1987.  On her back she is marked 1993 Indonesia. Her dress is not marked and probably no original.   Large feet, most likely wore sneakers. Jointed at elbows and knees. Not sure what her waist is called, but it is sort of a ball where she can pose every which way.   A gymnast?

Bought the set of Bratz Band Instrumentz on Saturday at the Thrift Store.  Box was damaged so I deboxed it all.  Besides the stage, it came with a set of drums, keyboard with stool, and more accessories.
