The first time I found out about this doll, only one thought crossed my mind, I want to have at least one. But, during that time Liv Dolls first came out, they’re just available in the U.S. and online. I don’t have a credit card, I don’t have an eBay account, and….I don’t have enough budget to buy one for they probably would cost a thousand plus!
Anyway, just when I least expect it, I found one in the Philippines! And of all the places in the world, in a thrift store! At the height of the yearly TOYCON (Toy Convention) where I decided not to go (because of the entrance fee and the chances of me drooling over dolls, feeling sorry I can’t afford, etc…etc) I went thrift store hopping instead. Lady Luck was on my side that day, took pity and granted my wish! Underneath the nude Barbies I found Sophie cold and naked…OMIGOD! I took a deep breath and almost shout, couldn’t believe it. Imagine, they’re not yet even available in the Philippines then. So, I immediately paid for her, she’s only Php130.00 (that’s about a little over $2.00) in good condition, minus the wig, shoes, and outfit. I don’t mind her being naked, she’s beautiful that way.
