Do You Have A Nicole Doll?

Tuesday Morning is carrying the Nicole dolls. $9.99 for a deluxe articulated version and $4.99 for a regular version that only has articulated knees.










Produced in 2014, these are the same people that made the Kenya and Friends dolls. I only have one Kenya doll that I purchased as a body donor. I like that those bodies have big old boobies, but their knees are the hinged typed and their necks are quite low and don't bend well you want to use them as donors. If I recall, the clothing wasn't that great and the earrings that came with my Kenya doll broke into pieces when I removed them.

I'm on the fence about getting one of the Nicole ladies. Although, that rose dress does look cute and fancy, I like the day wear better. If anyone has one, what do you think of the Nicole clothing quality? Decent? Feels like paper? Total crap???

Fresh Dolls at Walmart

Thanks to Roxanne's Dolls review, I've been keeping an eye out for the new Fresh Dolls and they are rolling into my Walmart's. I went to three different stores. The first one only had the regular dolls ($9.88), the second only had the deluxe dolls ($24.88) and the last had clothing packs ($4.88) but no dolls. Awesome consistency as usual, Walmart.

Anywho, here's some pics and a video... which is the same as the pics, lol.




I got this one but I haven't opened her up and probably wont. If the price goes down I'll get one to open and fiddle with.



Jacqueline looks gorgeous in person (see video).

The price seems a little stiff on the deluxe sets and I don't care for any of the gowns. The OOTD's are pretty nice though.

I'm Sparkle Girlz spoiled so when I saw the price I was all, "Whoa!"





Quality wise, they do seem worth the cost.

Barbie Chef & Waiter Set

Well, well, well, what have we here?
 
 
Saw this new set at Walmart.
 
This is actually the first Curvy model I've noticed in a set. That doesn't mean there haven't been others, of course. I see such hate and disdain on posts about Curvy Barbie's that I guess I was pleasantly surprised that Mattel is featuring one in a set and not just on Instagram.

The prototype Barbie on the back is gorgeous and has a distinguished cupids bow.

The real one though looks, uh, a tad different. Her lip paint got jacked up too.

I know it wouldn't be durable at all, but for once I'd like them to issue one of these hats as cloth or paper.


But I doubt that would ever happen considering they keep issuing these faux outfits. From a distance they look okay but close up they look so sad.

Both dolls have flat feet with the chef rocking some Crocs and the waiter in nice dress shoes.

Apparently you are dining alone because there is only 1 plate in this set! Now that's stingy.

Doll Show and a Little Vacation

Here's a video:
 


Here's some pics. ^--^


This was the only thing I purchased, a Harley Ken for $10. Everyone else probably has one of these, but I wasn't collecting when he came out so I was all, "GASP!" when I saw him.

I didn't photograph my booth since it was the same setup as last time. The show was great and I was so happy to sell out of the 50+ dolls I brought. One lady bought 23 dolls! She said they were for her grandkids. All I could think was, "Dang, Lady! How many grandkids you got?!" I gave her a stack of clothes for the dolls for free. She deserved it!

Per usual, I carry a doll with me when I travel but I rarely have time to take photos or I forget about it. This time I made an effort and took a few pics at the amusement park. People looked at me funny but no one said anything.

Mini Shopping Bags

Did you know you can get free mini key chain shopping bags from Publix? Oh. You did? Well, no one told me!


Story Time! I'm checking out and the cashier lady says, "Did you catch any good Pokémon?" All I think is, "Huh?" I look around and my phone is put away, I'm not wearing any Pokémon merch, nor did I buy any Pokémon related grocery. Meanwhile, the checkout boy says to the cashier, "Pokémon?! Nobody plays that anymore. That came out ages ago. Why would you even mention that?" She responds, "I saw her playing it the other day."


I'm like, "daHeck?! I haven't been here in days so where did you see me and why the eff were you so close that you could look at what I'm doing on my phone?" But, I'm just thinking this because I still haven't said a single word. The two of them carry on talking and I'm just eyeballing them with the stinkeye. Her because she's a stalker and him 'cause he's a Pokémon hating punk!

Back of the bag

Anyway as she hands me my receipt she's got it wrapped around a little green thing. I didn't stop to see what it was until I got to my car. And then I was all, "Oh, that's cute! That girl's still creepy though."


So, next time I went to Publix I asked the cashier lady (a different one!) if she had any of the mini bags. She didn't but said they get them randomly and give them to people who bring in their own shopping bags (which I never have). She flagged a manager and asked if they had any in back and they did and now I have 4 of them! Huzzah!

The End.

Newish Mattel Accessories?


These small packs are always sloppily displayed. Most times I overlook them, so I have no clue how long they've been in stores. For the price some are worth getting.


The back of the pack above.

Looks MUCH nicer in person.

This one is a pass. It's plain compared to the others.


The shoe packs contain nothing new but for the cost seem worth it.


I'm not into pets but this is darn adorable.


I know some of you are going to hate the pink, but look at the potential!
It's perfect for creating a diorama eatery and even has a dessert menu.


There were about 4 new versions, but this was the only one I liked.



Barbie backpack! Intended for kids, but if you're petite you could wear it.


Not an accessory but I was amazed to see this toy poster at the front of the store. They are going all out on the Wonder Women toys. I don't recall them marketing any other movie related toys like this.
