Seen in Stores: Bits and Bobs

Hello friends.  I was at Michaels (craft store) recently and saw a few items that I thought could work for Logan.  I know many Logan-owners eagerly waiting for a bigger wardrobe for this fellow.

I thought the nature lover/dragonfly outfit was particularly cute.  The soccer uniform is blue on top and black on the bottom.  Xyra recently had some dye transfer issues with another brand of doll clothing, so do beware.

If you are looking to see the American Girl new releases with commentary from someone who was there in person, check out The Mouse Lair.  I noted that her close up picture of the hotel’s guide to local restaurants includes Grace’s cafe,  a 50s diner, AG cafe, and a pizzeria.  Could a pizzeria be in the pipeline?

Are you familiar with The Queen’s Treasures?  The make high quality 18″ doll items and also have a line of Little House of the Prairie 18″ doll items.  This weekend they are having a sale amounting to 50% off most everything.  To see the prices you need to create an account.  This fall they are also coming out with a 2-story, foldable 18″ doll house (sturdy wood construction) which will be terrific I think.  I’m ordering a few things for Christmas (for me – insert blushing emoji here!).

Final thought – this week a doll enthusiast found that the AG doll hospital no longer can offer a new head for Lindsey.  If you have an old GOTY and have been waiting for the right time to get her repaired, now may be that time.  This will certainly impact the eBay business for some of the earlier dolls.

Hope your Sunday is terrific and you have time to play today!

Little House Laura

imageDoll friends, have you been over to The Queen’s Treasures to see the reveal of the Laura Ingalls Wilder doll?

I think she has a sweet face and expressive brown eyes.  Excellent value… For 99.00 you have Laura, her sleeping gown and cap, a quilt and pillow, her doll, and the world’s most adorable log cabin box.  I think I already forgot about Melody.

I love the respect that The Queen’s Treasures gives to kids and families.  Already have a doll who wants to be Laura?  You can just buy her clothing, including her “meet” outfit, for a reasonable $16.00.  Instead of bundling the cooking and home care items into a massive package, they are sold in smaller, more affordable bundles.

The must-have item:  Jack the Brindle Bulldog.  His muzzle is even pinkish just like a real bulldog.  It appears his nose is heavy vinyl and his eyes are plastic, not embroidered.

So glad there is now a quality play set that honors the Little House legacy.  Will we get Mary eventually?

Laura ships at the start of July.  Skip a trip to Starbucks every week and you’ll have money for Laura in plenty of time to welcome her in July!
