Yet another Mystery Man

Another Thrift Store find
Marked ES Toys 
Made in China 
Came dressed in mismatched camo outfit

Had to slit the boots in back. 
 They were on so tight I was afraid I would break his feet taking them off. 
Action figure?

Fashion Photographer 
 Fuji Film (promotion?) 
Made in China
She comes with a camera, camcorder, backpack, baseball cap and shoes
I also saw that she was wearing red tights.
On the side panels of the box, it advertises two cameras made by Fuji
Discovery 312QD 35 mm camera 
Endeavor 210 ix 24 mm Advanced Photo System Camera 
I googled the Discovery Camera and found one on Amazon. 
The oldest review was from 2000
On the Endeavor Camera the oldest review is from 1999. At that time 
the Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price was 300.00.  
Now on the internet, I found the camera for less than 20.00.
So I am assuming the doll was manufactured somewhere between 1999-2001.
Found at the Thrift Store today.

Computer Engineer - I Can Be Series

I finally found the Barbie I have been looking for. 
Computer Engineer 
I Can Be Series 
Mattel 2010 
Made in China 
Found in Toy's R Us on Sunday. 
It was the only one there. Haven't seen it in any of the other stores that I frequent. 
It's quite strange that lately the dolls I want, usually when I find them it is the only one there. 
And then there are dolls which there may be 5 or 6 of each are there week after week.
I still haven't seen the new Barbie Denim Basics in any of the stores.
Hope everyone had an enjoyable Valentine's Day!
