Happy Halloween From Kelly and Friends

These are a few of my Kelly Halloween dolls.  They are all Target exclusives.  I believe all the Halloween Kelly and Friends dolls were.  So far I've kept these in their boxes because they don't make Kelly dolls anymore.  She has been replaced by Chelsea who is a little bigger but just as cute.  There are dozens of different Halloween Kelly and Friends dolls but nowadays you can only buy them from secondary markets like eBay and Amazon.  Or if you're lucky enough to find someone who is selling a collection.  I keep hoping for that.  Have a fun and safe Halloween everyone.

Lightbrix Light Up Building Sets

I was instantly intrigued when I saw the Litebrix building sets for girls.  I am usually in the doll aisle when I'm browsing store shelves so those are the sets I came across first.  They are so cute.  To me they look like a cross between Legos and Lite-Brite.  And they pieces will connect with other building sets so you can utilize all your Lego Friends pieces too.  I may have to get a couple even if all my grandkids are boys.

Gigi Grant 13 Wishes Monster High Doll

Gigi Grant is my newest out-of-the-box Monster High doll.  I've had her for a couple of months, it just takes me a while to decide when to release them.  Gigi, being a genie and claustrophobic inside small quarters, was very happy to be out. She's got huge eyes, freckles and a dimpled chin. I think here eyebrows make her expression look confused.  And I love the pink scorpion tattoo on her chest.

Wizard of Oz McDonalds Happy Meal Dolls

The dolls in the background are from either the 2007 or 2008 Madame Alexander promotion.  There were 2 different sets. The plastic toys in the front are from the 75th anniversary of Wizard of Oz promotion in 2013.  Both cute but the Mdme Alexander dolls are the best.  Wish they would do a Monster High series of minis.  See them pictured separately on my blog ....

Legacy Day Ever After High Dolls

Raven Queen, Apple White and Briar Beauty are now available in their finest gowns and ready to attend Legacy Day where they proclaim in front of all fairy tale land that they will follow in their famous parent's footsteps.  I think Ravens outfit and headdress is gorgeous in the picture.  I can't wait to get them, but my Justice was sold out.  They have them online though at Justice and soon on the shelves at other stores.  Just in time for gift buying.

Jinafire Long Monster High Scaris City of Frights Doll

I've had my Jinafire Long Monster High doll for a few months but finally released her from her box today.  She's extraordinary.  Beautiful golden skin with scales on her torso, legs and arms.  Look at the detail in her eyes. She's a the daughter of a Chinese Dragon so she's got lots of Oriental style designs in her clothing.  What a beauty.  I can't believe it took me so long to de-box her.  Sorry Jin. See more pictures through the link below.

Ashlynn Ella and Hunter Huntsman Ever After High Dolls

Ashlynn Ella, daughter of Cinderella, and Hunter Huntsman, son of the Snow White Huntsman are available in a 2-doll pack now.  They are in a secret relationship so they're sold together.  I haven't bought these yet.  It seems my doll collecting activities are exceeding my budget constraints right now.  They are just making too many cool dolls too fast.  I think I need to make more money fast.  Look at her cute clock tower purse.  Read more about them by clicking the link below.

Disney Store Singing Sofia The First Doll

The Disney Store Online's Sofia The First is the most adorable doll for little girls ages 3 and up.  I'd say to about age 8.  I've gotten hooked on the cartoon on Disney Junior.  She's a village girls who's mother marries a king and she has to learn to be a princess.  The show is a year old now and has been renewed for another season thank goodness.  It's all about being kind and having manners.  Sofia is the sweetest little princess.

I bought the Sophia the First singing doll online and took pictures while I deboxed her.  You can view them all on my blog and hear the song she sings.  The stores are brimming with Sofia the First merchandise so if you've got a young girl with a gift list this doll may be on it.  Check out the singing version of the Disney doll before you buy.

Disney Infinity Game System

The Disney Infinity game will be on lots of kids Christmas lists this year.  It's incredible.  I played a demo for a few minutes at Toys r Us and would like one for myself.  Of course it helps if my grandson puts it on his wish list this year.  There are a few details you need to know before you dive in and I've written the quick and dirty guide to help you decide if this game is for you.  Plus there's a video of the Toy Box mode which is AWESOME!

Mini Lalaloopsy Pumpkin Candle Light Target Exclusive Halloween Doll

I love Mini Lalaloopsy dolls.  And I love Halloween dolls.  It's my favorite doll theme.  Target sells an exclusive Halloween Mini doll every year and this is the 2013 edition.  Her name is Pumpkin Candlelight and she comes with candy, a pumpkin pie with cute hearts in the top, and a spider on a web.  Eventually I'm going to make little stands for all my Mini Lalas and take pictures.  Read the full story on my blog.

Mini Cabbagepatch Babyland Halloween Angel Doll

I bought another mini Halloween Cabbage Patch Babyland doll today.  I showed a couple that I had found a few weeks ago in this previous post.  Today in a different Target I found this little angel.  I've added her to my Diary of a Dollhouse blog post and I took a photo of all 3 together.  They are so cute. I love Halloween dolls.

Disney Frozen Dolls Christmas Tree Photo

One more photo of my Disney Frozen Dolls.  Standing around the Christmas tree. It's not a real Christmas tree of course. It's not even decorated, so I suppose it's just a white flocked tree right now.  I bought it at Michaels with a 50% off coupon.  It will be the centerpiece of my Dept 56 North Pole village that we set up and surround by our Lionel Polar Express train.  In the Christmas display this tree will be huge.  Not so much with the Disney Frozen dolls.  But I thought it looked a bit festive anyway so I stood them all around the white flocked tree for fun.  I love these dolls.

Princess Ana and Kristoff Dolls From The Disney Frozen Movie

Princess Ana and her friend Kristoff from the Disney Frozen animated movie. Yesterday I opened Elsa and Hans, today it's Anna and Kristoff.  Anna is the protagonist in the movie, which is based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale "The Snow Queen".  These dolls and their outfits are exquisite for the price, around $17 each, and are great for collectors and kids.  The play value is amazing because the dolls are high quality in every aspect.  I'm so happy to welcome them to my collection.  See more photos and details on my blog.

Elsa and Hans Dolls From The Disney Frozen Movie

Meet Hans and Elsa from the new Disney movie Frozen, which will be in theaters beginning around Thanksgiving.  It's Disney's 53rd animated film.  The story is based on The Snow Queen fairy tale from Hans Christian Andersen.  These dolls are magnificent.  I think they are the best Disney dolls so far.  The outfits are incredible. Elsa's dress is a glorious shade of ice blue, simple but elegant.  And Hans's suit is so detailed.  You can read the rest of my observations and see lots more pictures on my blog.  And I'll be reviewing the other character dolls, Anna and Kristoff soon.
