For Alberto ... Mattel So in Style Baby Phat Kara

I've finally found the Mattel So in Style Baby Phat. She is lovely. I can see why she seemed to be the first doll to sell. She has lovely coloring - her streaked hair and her face.

Glad you were able to add her to your collection. They did a great job on the new girls.

Hi DBG, Vanessa, Jewel Snake, and Chicovintage!

@DBG - yes, she is lovely. Felt great to find her. I'd seen the others but not Kara.

@Vanessa - yes, they did a GREAT job on this set of the SiS dolls. Alas, I got this doll for someone else though so she will not be staying with us long.

(Course, I will likely find her again for myself. Very likely indeed ;-D)

@Jewel Snake - very cute - yes. And the sweater is gorgeous. Just the right "weight" for her. (Sometimes, the manufacturers make oversized knitted things. This sweater is doll-sized.) And the sunglasses look great. They look like real people's glasses.

@Chicovintage - aw, you are very welcome. I'll be getting back to you about the others soon.

These girls are really lovely XD

It's annoying our local Target doesn't stock them.

I almost got her at Target today. Her sign said $8.99 but when I scanned her it was $12.99. I put her back.

Nice! She really does have lovely colors. When I find one with good eye paint, I will snatch her up. I like all four BP SIS dolls.

Congrats on getting her. They are still very scarce in my area.

Hi Heather, Muff, MissSpottyJane, and Vicki! Yes, I was glad to find her although I want the roller skating Kara for my collection (this one wears the better fashion though.) Luckier still to find one with good eyes, too.

Let me know if you any of you want me to find an extra Baby Phat Kara for you; I know it's fun to choose the "right" one in "brick" stores, but just in case ;-)

And that $12.99 cost is the same in Target Philadelphia. I think the $8.99 price is for the animal-print dressed dolls.
