Mixed up Clone

After my trip to Amazing Savings, 
we went over to Shoppers World which
was next door. 
The store is located in an old grocery store. 
In the window, I saw some Defa-Lucys.
Went in and headed for the toys. 
Thought I might purchase a Lucy when 
something else caught my eye. 
I first did a double take when I thought
I saw a Barbie Basics Box. 
Upon closer inspection it was a doll 
called Super Cool Model. 
A Barbie Clone. 
There were a few different dolls (no AA)
all dressed differently.
I chose this one for her hair and her outfit. 
Called Super Cool Model 
 Lollipop Toys
11 1/2 inches tall 
Made in China 
She has  real eyelashes and earrings.
It wasn't till I turned the box over 
till I found out that she could be a Harumika Clone. 

Her outfit is only a piece of material 
wrapped around her body and locked 
in place by pushing the material into a slot (style lock)
in her back.
Just like the Harumika dolls. 
Comes with a stylus tool to tuck the fabric into the slot. 
There is also a stand for the doll. 
So I called her my Harumika Clone in a 
Barbie Basics Clone Box.
She is kind of pretty and unusual  for $4.99.
Too bad she wasn't articulated. 
Shoppers World find.

My Melody

I got to go to a great close-out 
discount store today called 
"Amazing Savings"
My friend and former co-worker told me about
this place that had Barbies.
The man in my life (who hates shopping)
decided to take me to this store after I told 
him about it.
He wanted to get some trucks for his
year old grandson.  Christmas Shopping 
before the rush.
In the doll aisle, there were the first 
Barbie Basics for 9.99. 
Elvis in Jailhouse Rock.
The 2010 Christmas Barbie and
a lot more. Couldn't decide what to get.

One of the dolls I got was 
My Melody 
Made in Indonesia 
Amazing Savings find. 

To continue with the story, I put 2 more dolls 
in the cart, along with about 4 trucks. 
I was surprised when the man in my life 
said he was buying them for me. 
We also stopped at Shoppers World and I found 
another doll which I will write about in another post.

The man in my life couldn't stop talking about 
the store and how we are going to go back.
I like that.

New Fashionistas

I wasn't going to go out today, but
I had to pick up a few things. 
Since I was in Wal-Mart, I had to go 
down the doll aisle.
To my surprise there were new
Barbie Fashionistas . 
I couldn't leave without buying at 
least one, so I chose
Barbie Fashionistas 
Made in China

There was also a Nikki, Raquelle, Summer, 
and 2 Blond Barbies.
They also had 2 new males, the blond and the
brunette. Can't understand why Mattel 
doesn't make an AA male fashionista. 

While I was there, I went down the clearance 
aisle.  Everything was 50% off the red sticker 
I picked up the Liv  Making Waves Cabana 
and the Liv 'n Life Accessory Set (bowling) 

Wal-Mart find.
