How Many Kelly/Chelsea-Sized Dolls Do I Have?

Muff had asked how many Kelly-sized dolls I had. As we all know, Kelly/Chelsea dolls are like the doll equivalents of Tribbles. Kelly/Chelsea dolls multiply the minute you turn away. Impossible, you say? Ha, I reply. Yes, I would actually say something like that. So counts of these notoriously tricky dolls can be off at times. When I counted the Kelly/Chelsea dolls seen in the DAF Room and in my bedroom, I found 33 of them.

I will be selling an additional 18 boxed Kelly/Chelsea dolls and 9 "loose" Kelly/Chelsea dolls. (Loose = out of their boxes; I am not discussing doll morals.) So there are presently at least 60 Kelly/Chelsea dolls in East Philly. How does that compare to my Barbie Barbies? Last count: 38 keeper Barbies, 25 boxed Barbies up for sale, and 9 loose Barbies for sale. So that's 60 Kelly/Chelsea to 72 Barbie Barbies. Sigh. Okay, I'll say it - no body out numbers Barbie Barbies.

Yes, I have some serious selling to do. And that's just the Mattel dolls. My other manufacturers will be next. They might be easier than the Barbies though. Or maybe that is just wishful thinking on my part.

Note: after checking some of the completed listings on eBay, some of the boxed dolls might get opened and sold separate from their outfits. In some cases, I the seller would get more for doing that. Who would have thought the outfits would be worth more? Oh wait, those comparing the current fashions with the fashions from the Fashion Fever period. Shrug.
