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.
