Bern Nadette (Good Times) Stannis Fans? Doll Alert

Okay, some of you might be ready to scream if you read the words, "Prettie Girls" at this blog one more time.

I sympathize. I do. But I want to slip in one last bit of news. Promise. This will end the Prettie Girls post for this week. This being Sunday, ha ha.

Angelic Dreamz alerts readers that One World Doll Project, creators of the new Prettie Girls dolls, will have a new Celebrity Collectors doll based on actress Bern Nadette Stanis who played Thelma, the smart-mouthed daughter, on 1970's sitcom "Good Times." You can check for this new doll in December 2013. And the price will probably be higher than the basic Prettie Girls dolls as the other Celebrity Collectors Cynthia Bailey doll is at $69.95.

So celebrity doll fans or "Good Times" fans or Bern Nadette Stanis fans rejoice. Another new celebrity doll will be available. How close the likeness is, though, cannot be determined. Wouldn't a personalized face sculpt be nice? Guess we will see next month.

I really hope that they do a different face sculpt for Bern Nadette. I would love to have a doll that actually looks like her. I will not pay a higher price for the same doll just because of different styling and attaching a celebrity's name to the product.

Hi Roxanne! Yes, me, too. If the face sculpt is personalized, I'll consider it.

Vanessa said...

Well this is very interesting. Hope it looks like her.

Hi Vanessa! Me, too.

I think that the Cynthia Bailey doll looks pretty, but I don't see a strong resemblance to the celebrity.

Now this will be an interesting doll to see. I will admit though that I would be more enthused if it was a doll based on Themla and not on the actress herself. Also, will it be based on her age now or will she be a teenager/young adult doll?

Hi Muff! I hadn't considered that aspect. I would hope for the actress in the Thelma role as a young woman. Not because I prefer teen dolls, but because that is why I imagine they used the "Good Times" reference. Shrug. I would also like the doll to resemble the young actress and not be a Prettie Girl doll with a light complexion ;-(
