Today we made a stop at Goodwill to drop off an entire trunkful of donations . . . and the store looked so nice we decided to take a quick look inside. Brianna and I headed for the toy section. My advice was, “Look for anything with long hair!” Saw a few OG dolls, but the one that stood out to us was this lovely lady:
This is Journey Girl Kyla. She has a black stain on her nose, and a mysterious sort of tire-tread type of mark on her forehead. Eyes are gorgeous! Like just about every “rehab” doll, she has painted fingers and toes. She was $2.99 and another 10% off, plus we had a gift card! She seemed like a good way to ease into doll rescue.
Kyla is JG’s Latina doll, and we’re kinda feeling a Brazilian identity for her. She is currently undergoing the benzoyl peroxide treatment for her stains. I was thrilled with the way her hair combed out. Do you like her “hospital gown”? That is a sleep sack Grandma made for a baby doll many years ago.
We will keep you posted on her beautification process. Any ideas for a name? What doll clothing lines fit JG other than the clothes at Toys r Us?
