Cheap Dolls

When I went to my favorite toy store a few days ago, I took a snap of some cheap fashion dolls they put up for the holiday season (well actually, they’re not that cheap).  Indeed, these dolls looked attractive because of their packaging, and at some point, have a lovelier product presentation.  Of course, they are not as sturdy as those of the high end dolls.

These Dolls do have fashion sense, I liked the color combination.

I almost bought Abbie!

Amused by this Beauty Sea Journey Mermaid

I’m not a big fan of toddler dolls, but they’re cute!

Lady Miu looked like a Pullip Doll.

Lovely Packaging

A Silkstone Barbie Clone!  This one is actually in Divisoria’s 168 Mall.  I already have one years ago, so I didn’t buy her.  I just included her picture here for my own reference.

And from among the dolls that Mattel released this year, only these 2 MTM caught my fancy!  They’re not cheap!

Donated

This morning I went to Toy Kingdom with my sister.  I donated 7 of my dollies!  I just want to have a remembrance before I let them go.  The past years, I usually drop my toys either at Jollibee or our local church office.  Not just dolls, but stuff toys as well.

I was thinking, donate a toy in exchange for a Php50.00 coupon per toy.  I didn’t choose TK just because of the coupon, I thought for a change.  Is it still a donation when you where given something in return?

Anyway, I hope my dolls will make some kids happy and vice versa!

I dressed the 3 fashion dolls, I don’t want them to travel nude.

20161130_110705These 2 vintage dolls has a complete outfit.  While taking their photos I was contemplating on replacing their clothes, they’ve got nice costumes.  But of course, I didn’t, like with the past dolls I donated, they should go with the dress they were born with.  Did I say born with?  It’s a pity if I rob them of their belongings and then give them away.

Happy trip my babies!

 

 

ANTEPRIMA DOLL CACOCUCO

Another thrift store find (Desibel) that I hold dear is an Anteprima Doll named CACOCUCO.  She looked different from the usual fashion dolls you see with long legs, slim figure with well-made up face like Barbie.  This one is chubby and maybe an inch shorter than Licca Chan.  Her body (jointed) is made of good quality hard plastic (Anteprima stamped on her back) and her head is of hard rubber not like the cheap ones.

Anteprima is not a toy company, check them out here.  There were 2 dolls actually.  Twins called Caco and Cuco.  So whether I got Caco or Cuco, does not matter coz they are identical twins LOL!  They were created for the 15th anniversary of Anteprima in 2008.  These dolls are not for sale.  They are given away as gifts only to close friends and clients of Anteprima.  I found this blog about the magical Twins.  See some of them here.
