First Dolls of the Year -- California Products

The first new dolls of 2009 arrived Friday, January 2, 2009. Esther and Noah from the Tales of Glory Messengers series by One2Believe and Lindsay Lohan from the My Scene Goes Hollywood series by Mattel rode in a box from K B Toys. They were on sale for $9.99 each.

I wanted the accessories included with Ms. Lohan. I'm not a fan, but I don't hate the actress. Some of the reviews on the K B website left me shaking my head. They seemed pretty harsh. But that's not a reason to take against the doll. Shrug.

Esther and Noah are novel to me. I had never seen or known of any Biblical characters that were Barbie scale. Another collector mentioned having a 12" Jesus. Other dolls in this series were Mary, Samson, and David. Those were dolls that K B Toys had for sale. (I missed out on Mary -- I didn't put my order through soon enough to get her.) I'm not sure how they will fit in -- partly because they are slightly larger scaled than Barbie and my usual 1:6 figures -- but they are now East Philadelphians.

Guess with a donkey and a goat in my collection, Biblical figures were bound to follow. I don't know why I made that connection ....

For those interested in the Biblical dolls, there is a website for the company that produced them:

And both Mattel and One2Believe are California companies.

Photos to be posted later today or tomorrow.

What a weird juxtaposition...Biblical dolls and Lindsey Lohan. You know what? You should take some pictures of the Mixis next to your action fems and compare their posability and such and post it over on Men With Dolls... I think people would be interested in a detailed review, and I can't get a good idea of their size [bigger than 11.5"??] and posability from the pictures I have seen.

Hi E.A. aka ModernWizard!

Thanks for visiting my blog. Yes, the Biblical dolls and Lindsay Lohan made a weird juxtaposition; and the trio ALL came from California. I'd almost do a skit on the conversation en route of the odd trio only I would have to read up on La Lohan and read up a bit on Noah and Esther. Not ruling that out though :-D

That's a great idea about doing a review of the Mixis dolls. I posted some comparison photos on Men With Dolls. I have posted some photos tonight to MWD; will do a fuller review later this week.

Thanks for providing such great ideas!
