This month was "Buy 3.0 Barbie Basic dolls month". It was already planned. As soon as I read Frannie's post that they were in the local stores, I went out to see what I could find. Of the six dolls, I had five on the list to buy and both accessory packs. At the two stores I went to, there were a limited number of dolls and both accessory packs were there. Neither store had the African American doll, which worked out perfectly for me because I needed to move some purchases to next month. I desperately needed the Asian doll and the auburn haired doll. The doll in the purple swimsuit was on my list, but she was iffy, until I saw her in person. They also had the one in the pink bathing suit, but after seeing her in person, she fell off the list. So now I only have the African American one left to buy and the two accessory packs.
I fell in love with this doll from the beginning and knew she would be coming to Morristown. We all know I was a red head in my former life. She has that 007 Bond girl feel to me. Those Bond girls (Halle is one of them) are all stunning to me.
This is also a doll I knew would be joining the crew. I look for older looking dolls when I am putting families together.
My Asian Only Heart sisters have patiently been waiting a couple months now for me to find them suitable parents. They now at least have a mom....
...and a granddad, who arrived in the mail yesterday. I am glad he was here waiting. Talk about perfect timing. I was on the hunt for a perfect Asian type older gentleman who would own a number of Asian restaurants that keep popping up in Morristown. He is perfect for the role.
I'm not sure if she is his daughter or his daughter-in-law, but those are definitely his grandkids. So that now makes seven grandparents that live here.
If you saw my post from earlier this morning, you also know that I bought two So In Style dolls yesterday, which rang up at $11.99.
After I paired Ian with Raven, I felt this guy would make a nice date for Raven's friend, who also works at the salon. (Raven and her girlfriend are both college students). He and Ian will become pals. He will be rebodied on the extra articulated Darren body I have.
I found these two Justin Bieber outfits on clearance for $5. Those pants will come in handy for the teenagers that are forming.
This was NOT on the list, but if I knew it existed, it would have been on the list. Isn't it adorable? Did you guys know that I was a British fanatic? I even went out and bought a coffee press so I could drink tea and coffee like the British. Another one of those inexplicable things I don't try to explain. Sort of like this whole dolly thing.
So say it with me, "dolly overload". Can you imagine if I didn't have a list?
