New Doll Items in Stores

I was out shopping over the weekend and of course had to take pictures of some of the new things I saw.
Monster High Scarnival Draculaura

Monster High Scarnival Skelita (love how she looks in orange)

Monster High Boo York Frightseeers Draculaura

Monster High Gore-geous Ghoul (and I thought Gooliope was large)

Bratz BFF ( not quite as tall as Gore-geous Ghoul but still fairly large)

Those were the only new things I saw on my shopping trip. Have you see anything new or interesting in stores lately?

Mattel removes Monster High from Transfer Page

Yesterday I was browsing Mattel's website and decided to check and see if Finnegan Wake was still available on the shop site. When the transfer screen came up I noticed that there were no representatives from Monster High or Ever After High present like there had previously been. There was however a representative for American Girl, Julie who had not been present before.

Create Your Own Wilde Doll

I received an email earlier in the week from Wilde Imagination (one of Robert Tonner's divisions) about the new create a doll.
According to the email you can purchase a blank body and customize a resin Ellowyne or Evangeline doll. The resin bodies cost $250 for a blank Ellowyne or $295 for a blank Evangeline, each blank doll comes with a set of brown eyes and a set of blue eyes. 
I wonder if they will eventually do this with the vinyl bodies as well.

Possible Doll Line For Upcoming Disney Movie

In a press release today Disney announced that they will be releasing a new movie next November titled Moana. The title character is a determined teenage girl, (likely) from Hawaii who sets out on an adventure. I think it would be very safe to say that we will see lots of toys including dolls for this upcoming movie.

Doll Pet Size Comparison Our Generation vs. My Life As

There are all sorts of pet options available for dolls in the 18 inch size family. I wanted to review two of the more well known brands today Our Generation and My Life As. The Our Generation brand is exclusive to Target and the My Life As brand is exclusive to Wal-Mart. The Our Generation pup retails for around $3 and the My Life As pup sells for $5. Both have stuffed bodies that are not posable and are made well for their price. The OG dog has features that are stitched while the MLA dog has plastic "button" features. Both dogs have a tag, a pink og tag on the OG dog and a shiny,bone shaped tag on the MLA. The biggest difference is size,
the OG dog is significantly smaller than the MLA dog. When compared to an American Girl doll
the OG dog looks like a very small puppy, while the MLA dog resembles a smaller size dog. I enjoy having both of these pups in my collection and am glad that there is a size difference and variety between the lines.
