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!


Last December I was able to restrain myself from buying dolls.  I shun away from warehouse sales, clearance sales, midnight sales, holiday offers, etc…!  But there’s one sale I wasn’t able to ignore, not because the sale items are too good to resist, but because I was so stressed out with my office work that I have to relieve it somehow.  Anyway, I dropped by TRU (Toy’s R Us) and found a Silkstone Barbie clone!

I don’t really like clones because they are usually made of cheap materials, the design or artwork are not really that attractive, mostly made without quality control.  But this one tickled my fancy, I can’t afford a real Silkstone Barbie, they costs a month’s salary.  So, this one will do, she’s only Php200.00 or about almost $4.00 and she’s not really cheap looking. 

She’s Ardana…

Ardana has her own Tiara and stand!
The back of her box has a different doll in the picture with a typical Barbie face (good thing they didn’t use this facemold)
I always wanted to capture a doll’s face up close, but since I don’t have a digicam, my T700 cellfone will do for the meantime.
