Hotel Transylvania

Hello world!  I’m idle at the moment so I’ll share a few finds which I know for sure most doll collectors already have.  I took a lazy stroll around one of my favorite toy store yesterday.  I saw a few interesting dolls. 

Made to Move Fitness Yoga Barbie (this one is curvy) the more I look at her, the more I felt like buying it on the next mall sale!  I liked the facial expression and the legs!  LOL!  She looks so fresh, the make up, the outfit, hmmmp!  But, I didn’t like the elbow joints.  The gap is too wide.  I am trying to dissuade myself.  

Another doll that catches my fancy is the Limited Edition Hotel Transylvania Mavis.  She’s about the size of Skipper.  I was in a hurry, sorry for the photos.  I wasn’t able to take a snap of the back and the manufacturer’s info.

She comes in 2 types, the one in Wedding Dress, and the one in Bat outfit.

I’m not sure how many points of articulation she have, I only saw that her elbows are bendable, as for the knees, I’m not sure.  She’s expensive (at least for me) at Php1,200++ so that’s about $23++ whew!

I left the store.  I have promised myself that the next doll I’m going to buy would be the new Bratz!

A Monstrous Decision: Twyla!

Meet Twyla!dsc05496

I almost postponed posting again, busy with year-end reports in the office.  Anyway, yes I chose Twyla because I liked the color combination, my favorite shades!  Reading her profile is like I’m reading my own!

She stands only 9.5″ unlike the other 3 MH that I have.  Of course, she’s just 14 years old!  Carefully position her at certain angle and she can very well stand on her own, but in the photo below I was in a hurry I used blue tack.  I didn’t like the stand she came with because it’s leaning backward.  I love her shoes, her tattoo and tutu skirt, I don’t like the feel of her hair, it’s sticky! 

My other 3 Monster High Dolls are thrift store items.  Luckily, they all have their limbs intact and original clothes on.  Bought them on separate year.

Nefera De Nile is the most beautiful and tallest among the 4 and my first MH doll.  She stands 11″ and she also has sticky hair!

Lagoona Blue, she stands 10.5″ with sticky hair too!

Cleo De Nile stands 10.5″ and has a soft manageable hair, alas, it’s not sticky like the first 3!

Side note,  I could have bought Clawdeen Wolf, the Ghouls Alive version if it weren’t for the exposed scalp that has what seems like an incision 😦  across her forehead.  Maybe if they lower again the price to maybe Php300.00 why not!

Next in line, Ari!
