Wow! On their 10th year! It means I’ve been going to this yearly event for 10 years now. Well, the first 5 years was great, they had big bargains and a lot of collectible items, wide selection of toys from cheap to high end. But the succeeding years wasn’t as grand. Anyway, I did went just the same, yes, parents can still enjoy shopping for their kids, but not much for collectors.
The first thing I searched for was the BRATZ booth, I was hoping they still have leftover stocks of the old line. But nah! They only have the 2015 release.
The Barbie booth is boring has nothing much in terms of collectible dolls.
Monster High Dolls for me still has a monstrous price tag despite the slash!
Descendants and EAH dolls, they never caught my fancy.
But these dolls got me interested though…I almost bought this one, not cheap looking. The stand seems durable unlike those Php50.00 I bought from Market! Market!
These dolls looked like Kyla, its like those Chic Boutique Dolls, seems all hard plastic except for the head.
I carried these Moxie while I was doing my rounds, I was trying to decide if I will buy these or not because they’re cheap!
Aww! I pitty these dolls! Novi Stars at Php100.00 due to damaged box.
At the end of the day, I left empty handed. Hurrahhh!! I was able to restrain myself from buying!
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.
