LIL OUTRAGEOUS LITTLE!  The first time I saw these cute mini dolls I don’t need to check who’s product they belong to.  The eyes, body shape, they’re like mini Baby Bratz, except they are much cute and adorable!  They are from MGA Entertainment.  A lot has already been written about these dolls last year, but I only saw them on display at Toys R Us last weekend.  Here in the Philippines they costs Php499.00 plus, so that’s about $10.00 plus and quite expensive for me.

7 Layers of surprise!  Got to check them out.  There are 45 characters, all collectible and my wish is to have Queen Bee, Fresh, and Cosmic Queen.  I don’t have a photo of them, check this MGA Entertainment site.  I love them all!

I was suppose to write about Kong Hei Fat Choi, I couldn’t find the dolls.  Oh well, next time maybe.

My 70s Dolls Part 7 & other Vintage dolls

The week that was has given me so little time to round up my old dolls, too many housework.  So far here are some (note: I should have entitled these posts as My Vintage/old dolls instead of just the 70s Dolls) some of these may not be from the said era and I am a bit lazy to research on the exact year they came out, so anyone reading this, feel free to correct me, I don’t mind, thank you.

I found these 3 dolls along with Flatsy Dolls by Ideals, but I didn’t buy them.  These Liddle Kiddles’ outfit have become sticky so I threw them away, not realizing that they could add up to the value of the doll if ever I decide to sell them, ouch!

MISSING THE WIZARD!

I was out of touch for quite some time.  My 70’s doll posts was left hanging due to my inability to keep my storage organized, meaning to say, I forgot where I put most of my old dolls.  I only have big carton boxes where I toss them and forget them, now they got all mixed up.  

I’ve decided to write about my Oz character collections instead, and will get back to my 70’s doll in my future post.

In my pasts thrift store hopping, there was a time when all I could find are Oz characters by Mcdonalds.  I’m not into mini dolls, but got interested because the designs are based from Madam Alexander collections, a doll company that started in 1923. 

I love how McDonalds was able to present mini versions that are not cheap looking.  I mean, they’re included in Happy Meals, so they have to consider the manufacturing costs to fit the budget meal altogether.

One by one I was able to collect some of the characters released from different years.  So, just when I thought I got all of them ready to walk down yellow brick road….alas!  I realized I missed the Wizard!  I googled how the Wizard of Oz looked like, I was like….Oh man!  So I’ve already crossed path with the wizard! Dang!

He was wearing a green suit, I remember I found one years ago but left him at the counter last minute because I didn’t know who he was!  I picked the Mad Hatter doll instead!

This is my favorite version of their Dorothy because she looked like an antique bisque doll.  She has this facial expression I liked.   

MY 70’S DOLL PART 3

I’ve been lazy, the net is soooo slow!  I don’t know up to how many parts these 70’s doll will take me.  Lately the days are gloomy, hard to take pictures, plus my hands are not as steady as they used to.  I want to make my details short and just post everything.  But, on second thought, for my own reference, I’d like to put all info (if I can) so as not to forget.  I’m not getting any younger, so my memory in time will fail me to recall.  

UNIDENTIFIED CLONE DOLL (PETRA VON PLASTY?)

I love clone dolls made from the 70’s.  I don’t care if the materials they used are cheap.  I found these at Desibel in Cubao a few years ago.  The side glance is my deciding point, plus the hairstyle!  I thought she looked like Sindy, then I remember a doll named Petra. They looked more like Petra Von Plasty, I’m not sure, she could be Tressy, or just another craft doll. While most of the dolls I googled are side glancing towards the left, these are glancing to their right side.  No year was stamped at the back, I can tell they are from the 70’s.  

PURSE DOLLS made in Hong Kong

These are my sisters’ dolls, but they have outgrown them, so they were handed down to me.  There was a period during the 70’s that a mini doll inside a plastic purse or bag became a hit.  Liddle Kiddles dolls are the famous one.  These Hong Kong dolls has the same body structure as the Kiddles.  I remember they’re in a pink plastic purse with keychain.  They wear a white and blue striped uniform with a nurse cap, so I suppose they are nurses.  I lost their outfit.

Mini Furniture: Study Room

My second box of mini is for the Study/Office Room.  I know there are a lot of manufacturers of mini doll furniture out there that creates a far more detailed home furnishings than the ones I got, but, I’m satisfied with my finds.  You don’t always get good stuff like these in a thrift store at a very affordable price, mint condition (at least for me) in a box.  I am amazed!OFC SET

The back of the box shows pictures of other available design.  However, I’m not sure what year these were produced.  I wish I could chance upon their Bedroom Showcase (looks more like bathroom actually) and the Living Room with the Grandfather’s Clock!

BACK OF BOXThese items are in 1/12th scale.  I can use it for Kelly sized dolls or with Madame Alexander Dolls by Mcdonald’s.

When you’re a doll collector, chances are, you’d also have a few pieces of mini furniture which you might want to have around for picture taking purpose.  They’re great background filler and makes your doll photos even more interesting specially if it’s scaled down to their sizes.

I’m not really collecting minis but sometimes I would come across a good buy that’s hard to pass and below are a few of them.  I found them on my visit to my fave thrift store, the price?  It’s a steal!  Means really cheap so i took 2 boxes along with a vintage doll (which i will post some other day) and it’s their new arrival day.  I haven’t been to a thrift store on a “new arrival” date.  Usually, I would come 3 days or even a week after!

I know I should have posted these a long time ago (bought last year), but I don’t have that much time to sort and I have other priorities set for posting.  Anywayz, on with the pictures!
