Target Sales - Barbie in Uniforms and Others

Yesterday, I noticed these dolls on sale at Target:

Career Barbies for about $28 each and Liv dolls for about $13 each.






There were other dolls on sale like the H2O dolls, but these dolls struck me as the best buys. Poseable Liv dolls whose bodies could be used with Barbie heads; the astronaut Barbie outfit kept for another Barbie ... yes.

(Late) Happy Birthday to Me!

Yesterday was my birthday ... next year, I'll share a blow-out anniversary with Ken, but I am acknowledging the day now. Gives me an excuse to share some of my birthday-themed dolls, ha!

Here are two Takara Jenny Calendar Girls:



The one in the navy Schoolgirl uniform is Tamaki, an Art student; the other in the Reggae inspired-outfit is Reggae Jenny. I will write more about Jennys in future posts, but these are two of my favorites.


Next, are two Mattel Barbies, Birthstone Beauty for July and Zodiac Cancer:



I like these although poor Birthstone Beauty July looks starved. Model muse body. What can I say?

Ty Li'l Ones: New Friends for the Kellys & SiS Girls

Saw these cuties in a Shop-Rite supermarket: they are called Li'l Ones. Aside from the deliberately "cute" name - Li'l for Little - I can see adding them to my collection. They seem to be Kelly-sized. Really cute although the face seems to be the same for them all. Most of them have dogs, but there's at least one with a cat.

Kellys and SiS girls can have new friends.
