Monster High Freaky Fusion Dolls

It wasn't until last weekend that I realized how vast the Freaky Fusion line really is. I know, I know, where have I been? I'm sure I saw something at some point but it must have slipped my mind because when I saw the Save Frankie dolls I was surprised. Good surprise, we did happen to find a Jackson doll, yay. Anyway I just wanted to break down the Freaky Fusion line for a better view.
First we have the Hybrids, the children of two different monster species. These are the four new characters that everyone has been excited about:
Avea Trotter- part Harpy part Centaur
Bonita Femur- part moth man, part skeleton 
Sirena Von Boo- part mermaid, part ghost
Neighthan Rot- part zombie, part unicorn

Then you have the Fusion doll, the ones that are combinations of two characters
Cleolei- Cleo and Toralei
Dracubecca- Draculaura and Robecca
Lagoonafire- Lagoona and Jinafire
Clawvenus-Clawdeen and Venus

Next are the ghouls dressed as other ghouls, pretending to be fused, and channeling an aspect of that characters personality:
Ghoulia as Draculaura 
Frankie as Clawdeen
Operetta as Frankie
Scarah as Toralei

Finally you have the Save Frankie dolls:

Oh and don't forget about the Frankie Recharge Chamber ( that I haven't seen yet) that comes with an exclusive Frankie doll.
So the grand total is fifteen dolls and one play set with a doll. That's a large line, I'm not complaining I really am enjoying this line I was just surprised by the amount of dolls in it.
Of the dolls in the line which are your favorites? least favorites? Any other combinations you would have come up with?

Ever After High Thronecoming

I have to admit that I'm really drawn to the Ever After High dolls. It took awhile at first because the large, round heads took a little getting use to, but now I'm hooked. I finally saw the Thronecoming set with Briar Beauty in it, and she might be the prettiest version of this doll to date (I need a really close look first though). The Thronecoming line includes Blondie, Raven, Cupid, Apple and the Briar play set. The play set folds into a book shape and Beiar fits into the spine of the book, the only downfall is that her dress is not as elaborate as the others in this line.
Which Thronecoming doll is your favorite?

Flea Market Sightings

Over the weekend a county near where I live held their annual county wide yard sale/flea market. I found a few treasures that ended up coming home with me. Over the course of finding these treasures I came across many other interesting dolls and items that I wanted to share with you. These items didn't come home with me but i will be sharing the ones that did at a later time. If you happen to know any information about these I would love for you to share it with us.

12/23 Update: American Girl of the Year 2015

American Girl had posted stock photos of Grace and her items on the website but removed them. You can however see them at the site below
I really like her collection so far, what do you think of Grace and her collection?

An image of the Grace mini doll has surfaced ( I'm not posting the photo because AG has asked others to remove the photo from their sites). We finally know what she will look like, she has dark brown or black hair with bangs, blue eyes, and appears to have freckles. She does not appear to have the classic face mold but either the Josefina or Marie Grace mold.
I find the mini doll to be very cute and can't wait to see what her 18 inch counterpart looks like. I know the mini doll will be making her way to my house.

The Grace mini doll is now available for preorder from Barnes and Noble.

We now have the descriptions for the two other books in Grace's collection
Grace Stirs It Up

Grace Makes It Great

What do you think of the books?

We can now confirm that the Girl of the Year for 2015 will be named Grace.

This information was in Library of Congress catalog and the description matched the description available on Amazon.

A third book description is now available on amazon, with a release date of late May 2015.
We now know that "Coco's" grandparents own a bakery that might have to close. "Coco" and her friends intend on using their culinary skills to help keep it open. 
I'm really excited to see what this doll looks like and I'm glad they chose something a little different with one of her talents being baking.
The book descriptions have been added to Amazon and are a little different from the movie description.
Book 1:
Book 2:

The books are written by Mary Casanova who wrote the books for GOTY Jess, Chrissa, and McKenna and illustrated by Sarah Davis who illustrated Kanani's and Saige's books. According to the book summaries GoTY 2015 is a nine year old from Massachusetts and has relatives in France whom she goes to visit. She has an interest in starting a business with her friends.
We now have a tiny bit of information on the upcoming GoTY for 2015. According to there is a movie about to go into production about a girl (code name Coco) who is trying to save her grandparents ice cream shop from being shut down.
We will continue to update as we get more information.
