Cabbage Patch Little Sprouts Blind Pack Review

Meet the latest additions to the Cabbage Patch Kid community: Cabbage Patch Little Sprouts!  Cabbage Patch Little Sprouts are tiny figures resembling the soft-bodied dolls many of us grew up with. Though I missed the Cabbage Patch chaos of the eighties, these classic collectibles are still popular and were one of my favorite playthings when I was a youngster.  Even now, two of these one-of-a-kind dollies sit nearby waiting for me to notice and give them new outfits. Since I have many nostalgic memories of my Cabbage Patch family, I was interested in reviewing the new Cabbage Patch Little Sprouts and thought they would makeRead The Post

Doll Review: Spring Unsprung Lizzie Hearts

I hope you’ve got some time to spare because this is one looong review!  You might even consider bookmarking it for later. As you all know, I prefer crafting my own doll rooms, accessories, and whatnots and typically don’t buy doll playsets–well, except for that beautiful castle I’m still working on.  It’s not that I don’t like playsets; I just don’t need them.  Plus, playsets are often more expensive, so I like to avoid the extra cost and focus on just the doll. However, even I, the playset snob, couldn’t resist Spring Unsprung Lizzie Hearts and her spellbinding, book-shaped dorm room! Mattel released five versionsRead The Post

Doll Review: Mirror Beach Ashlynn Ella.

Mirror Beach Ashlynn Ella has long been on my doll radar.  I first saw her on another doll blog.  As I scrolled down the pages, admiring all the lovely pictures, this pretty girl popped into view! I was smitten!  She looked so different from my current Ashlynn Ella (Epic Winter) that it took a few moments before I realized they were the same character. While I still like Epic Winter Ashlynn, I’m tired of trying to color coordinate outfits to match her pink legs.  Working around the bright color is such a pain I usually end up putting my sewing box away or switching toRead The Post

Thirty Instagram Hashtags For Doll And Toy Bloggers.

What is a hashtag besides a pound sign followed by a string of letters? Three years ago, I knew diddly squat about hashtags, but then I began blogging and opened an Instagram account to show off pics of my dolls and action figures.  Sadly, I knew nothing about the platform.  I’d post a picture, write a quick caption, add a generic hashtag (maybe two if I felt bold), and call it a day.  How embarrassing😳! The result?  My account sat stagnant.  No followers, no likes, no comments…nada.  I needed an Instagram crash course big-time!  Specifically, I needed to learn how to use that funny symbolRead The Post

How to make a 1:6 scale doll desk inspired by Tony Stark's workshop desk.

Get out your toolbox because today we are creating the coolest doll desk you’ll ever see!  What’s so special about this particular desk? It’s inspired by Tony Stark’s workshop desk! I was browsing Pinterest late one night (something I do a lot of, apparently😉) when an image of a Hot Toys Tony Stark standing in front of a light-up desk popped up into my feed.  Of course, I had to click it! I believe the 1:6 scale piece of Stark inspired furniture I stumbled upon is made by a company called Toys Box.  The desk is modern looking, has LED effects, and costs about $50–andRead The Post

Blind Bag Friday: My Little Pony Blind Bags!

Would you believe it if I told you the cat ate my craft?  Well, he did, or rather they did. Today’s post was destined for greatness.  An epic creation worthy of Tony Stark.  Alas, I made the mistake of leaving our five kittens alone in my craft room while I stepped outside to check on a horse and POOF!  My Stark inspired desk became a feline chew toy! It was a catastrophe😼. I tried to salvage the desk, but it was too late.  No amount of paper could hide the glaring teeth marks.  Desk number two is underway but not quite finished (let’s just sayRead The Post
