Hot Links to New Mattel Doll Photos

Much gnashing of teeth and pulling of hair - kidding, joking, but darn there are photos of new dolls popping up. Bam, bam, bam! Here are links to some of them. Remember, don't shoot the messenger?

I glanced at a few pages on eBay. I had to see this beauty, the Brunette Stardoll in an actual photo. Can't wait to see an actual doll to the Black doll in the purple dress. Sigh.

From Facebook member Sandra B, frequent contributor to doll news, especially at The Doll Cafe. Two Barbie I Can Be doll sets that include KEN as part of the series. What? I While I want to ignore these sets because they have Barbie with Smarmy Ken, I am torn about them. So far, I have avoided buying Smarmy Ken. But these sets are too cute. Firefighter Ken and Police Barbie. Doctors Ken and Barbie in ONE set. Yes, for Ken's 50th birthday, Barbie is allowing him to work alongside her as either a firefighter OR as a doctor. Hmmm ... what do you think about that?

Moving along, let's see photos of the upcoming Dancing with Stars Barbies on Red Carpet Dolls blog.

New S.i.S. Marisa. As Tiffany Tran notes in the comments, this adult Marisa resembles the AKA Centennial Barbie. (My one who got away, lol.)

Just to keep you glued to your computer chairs. I know - wicked, wicked enabler am I!

Thank you for the links. I'm soo psyched about the Stardolls I can hardly wait until they're available at a decent price somewhere (this is never going to happen).
Here's more cool upcoming playline dolls! Ballerinas, including a super cute asian girl this is interesting to me mostly because of the body. Reminds me of Get Real girls, I hope they use it on more dolls in the future.

Thanks for all the links. It was interesting to see what's coming. Although I won't be buying the Ken and Barbie sets, I think it is great that they did that. I think the little girls will love having the two dolls. The SIS Marisa doll is interesting. I would buy here. Those discussions got a little heated on that site. That's always fun.

You're welcome, Alrunia and Vanessa!

The Stardolls are my biggest want of the dolls shown to date. That swim Barbie with joints did resemble the Get Real Girls in the joints and because she looked a little bit better fed than most jointed Barbies.

Oh, and thanks for the links to MORE playline dolls, Alrunia. Sigh. I appreciate, I do, I do ;-D

Vanessa, I am still pondering those Barbie-Ken career sets. On one hand, I like the novelty of them. But then again, I am grown-up (sometimes) so I remember limited space, limited funds, now do I really, really want/need that set or is it something I would want, should my world lack limits?

SiS Marisa reminds me of the AKA Centennial Barbie - minus the garish glitter on the eyelids.

Heated conversation? Oh, I missed that. Will need to go back. I seldom get into heated online conversations - way too tiresome for a lazy one like me, lol. But they can be interesting to follow ;-D
