Doll News: Fall 2018.

I admit I’ve been a bit distracted with my Marvel figures and Avengers 4 “research”.  Hey, half the universe is a pile of ash!  Whispers that the future holds nothing but annihilation are everywhere!  There is no way I can go five months without digging for some nuggets of hope. But I think it’s time to take a break from the reviews and movie discussions to check out a few newly released dolls and upcoming Marvel Legends figures. The Nutcracker And The Four Realms: Disney’s reimagined version of the Nutcracker hits theaters on November 2nd, and the dolls are already showing up in stores (atRead The Post

Doll News: Upcoming Dolls For 2018

Get ready, friends, for a sneak peek at the dolly delights coming to us in 2018!     First, let me introduce you to Disney Store’s latest Animators’ doll: Elena of Avalor! That’s right!  Disney Store has added Elena to their Animators’ collection!  To be honest, I have never seen Elena’s show and don’t know much about her. She is wearing a ruffly, red dress and has a headband, belt, and shoes.  She is also holding a plush…jaguar?  Or maybe it’s a wolf?  I’m not sure who her friend is but, according to Disney Store’s description, his name is Zuzo. I love all the differentRead The Post

Doll News: 2017 Disney Animators' Dolls

Our favorite fairy tale tots are back!  The 2017 Disney Animator Doll Collection has just shown up online: All images via DisneyStore.com Do my eyes deceive me or is that a Disney Animator FLYNN RYDER? It is and he’s so super cute!  Usually, I’m not interested in the boy Animator dolls, but I think Flynn is adorable!  The more I look at him, the more I think of all the cute crafts I could make for him…like a little satchel, maybe some archery stuff, and (of course) some “Flynn Ryder” books. *Sigh*…it’s never a good sign when I start getting craft ideas for dolls I don’t yet have. Right now Flynn Ryder is retailing for $26.95, but everyRead The Post

Doll News: Film Collection Beauty And The Beast Dolls

Oh boy! Disney Store has finally released their collection of Live Action Beauty And The Beast dolls! If you’ve recently googled “live-action beauty and the beast dolls”, you’ve probably seen all the controversy about the JC Penney Belle looking too….masculine I guess?  In fact, I think the doll has been recalled due to everyone’s negative reaction.  Apparently, though, lots of collectors feel that Disney Store dolls and JC Penney dolls look very similar, and there was talk about the Disney Store Belle being terrible.  So, I was pretty anxious Sunday evening (yes, I am one of those crazies who stays up till 2:00 AM waiting for Disney to release their long-anticipated items) and was hoping that my loyalty to Disney wasn’t about toRead The Post
