It pays to be patient! Last year I posted a doll that had me going crazy for a week simply because someone found her first! I was referring to “THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY.”
A year after that, I happen to passed by a thrift store which I had not visited for a long time. A sign indicates the “New Arrival” was 3 days ago. So I thought by that time, all I may see are probably left-over stuff, toys with missing pieces already, and dolls that have been stripped of their clothes by careless customers. I did went in anyway, to pass time.
I was right, nothing interesting caught my fancy. Was about to go when I took another look at a tall shelf behind me, I am myopic, so I squinted my eyes as I scan the writings on each boxes. On the topmost portion of the shelf lays a dark blue box along with the other stuff, I don’t know why I focused my attention on that one, I craned my neck and blink several times, it read Ufuoma Urie. It sounds familiar to me, I got excited and asked for assistance because I could’ nt reach it. My heart was pounding as the clerk handed the box to me, can you believe that! I think I’m going insane! At last! My own LITTLE APPLE DOLL!
UFUOMA URIE IS THE ARTIST CREATOR OF LITTLE APPLE DOLLS
WITH ACCESSORIES! STORYBOOK, TRADING CARD, CERTIFICATE, APPLE & REAL PINS!
Little Apple Dolls doesn’t really have a face (no lips, no cheek blush, lashes and eyes) all she has is a pair of eyeless hollow socket and a slightly protruding nose. This doll I found is probably a product of Toy Convention contest, like an on-the-spot face up. She is in mint condition (still new!) with all accessories intact in their original packaging, except for the dented box. I don’t like what they did to her face, maybe in time, I shall restore her face to its original state. But right now, she will have to wait.
