First Dolls of the Year
I have to admit I got overly excited when I realized it was a new year and I could freely buy new dolls. I first ran to Amazon.com looking for the Made to Move Barbies. The Asian version had gone up on price, so I bought the brunette one. After seeing a FB post, I was made aware that the AA Made to Move Barbie was showing up in Target stores. I went to two different Targets in my area. Man, I have never seen such empty shelves. It was almost as though they had announced a 'going out of business' sale. At the first Target they had one each of the Asian and the blonde MTM Barbies. I bought them both. I then headed to another Target. There they only had one, the Asian one. I bought her, too. As I was looking down other empty aisles, hoping someone had misplaced a MTM Barbie, I ran across the most adorable 18" doll from the Divah Collection. The line is called Positively Perfect, and they have a wide assortment of dolls of color, including AA, Hispanic and Latina dolls.
This is Zair, and I fell in love with her the moment I saw her. There were only three Positively Perfect dolls on the shelf. This one and two Hispanic dolls.
Here she is out the box. Living A Doll's Life did a complete review of her, undressing her, and taking down her hair. You can see that here. I recently bought some 18" doll clothes from a local doll artist. Zair can't wait to try them on. I'm going to let her keep her given name. She looks like a Zair.
Here are my three MTM Barbies. I will be on the search for the AA one tomorrow. Phyllis did a great review of these dolls. You can see her complete review here.
Finally, I added this little red haired, freckle face mini Moxie girl.
You may be asking if there will be a limit on dolls this year. The answer is yes, but it will only pertain to female fashion dolls that will be added to the collection. Body donors, kids, male action figures, and dolls purchased solely for accessories will not count. The number this year will be 15. Two of the dolls in this post will count, so I'm down to 13.
