The Most Wonderful Time of the Year: Toy Fair 2013

No, I haven't made a mistake there: Toy Fair is the MOST wonderful time of the year for this collector/enthusiast. Mid-late February is when many new dolls are previewed. What could be more fun than that? Okay, yes, the winter holiday sales ... and close-outs ... but ... (hushed tone) Toy Fair ....

First blog with news that I noticed is Ada's site. In addition to some 2013 Barbies, Ada has news about Integrity Toys' Jem line.

Paul of Idle Hands shows new dolls for Mezco Living Dead fans, Monster High fans, and others.

One of my favorite preview sites, Asmzine shares their photos of those creepy two-faced dolls, the Mystixx by Playhut. Playhut is expanding the Mystixx line with Zombies and Grimm figures. Shudder, shudder.

Then there is a new Arklu offering, Lottie, who might appeal to Licca fans. You may remember Arklu as the makers of that amusing Duchess of Cambridge doll.

Finally, there is a series based on the World Wildlife Fund - imagine that! They are called the Zeenies.

So there are a lot of new fashion doll series out. Enjoy!
