Modern Girls by Creatology made their first appearance at Michaels craft stores sometime in late 2015.  They were originally brought in as a seasonal item and sold alongside the Springfield Collection dolls that had been previously sold there. Since then, Modern Girl dolls have continued to be sold through Michaels.

LRC Custom Dolls

Two random dolls, because reasons. . .

Today my two random dolls were randomly selected from my list of custom dolls, LRC Charmers and The Cool Ones. They dont have names; they're both prototypes for future dolls.

Both the dolls use face sculpts by Pat Secrist (I adore Secrist faces!): Annette on the left, and Punkin the little princess on the right.

Springfield Collection Dolls

The Springfield Collection by Fibre Craft describes itself as "a brand of fun, fashionable and affordable 18-inch dolls, clothing, accessories and furniture." Their modestly priced 18" dolls have have been a popular alternative to the costlier American Girl dolls, but the current Springfield Collection dolls are the result of a long evolution, beginning in the mid 1990s.

My Twinn 18" Pearl and Kim

Two random dolls, because reasons. . .
So today my two random dolls are not so random. They're 18" My Twinn Pearl and Kim. I've been on a mission for these girls for awhile; they're a bit harder to find. I missed one or two eBay auctions in that time but was finally able to get both of them!

My bigger quest is to get all four 18" Asian molds, Pearl, Kim, Berkeley, and Cai. I've collected three of them in the last year and hopefully I'm zeroing in on the last.

My Life As Dolls

My Life As dolls first appeared in 2012 when Madame Alexander introduced a new 18" play doll collection which featured dolls in different life roles, and were sold exclusively through Walmart. MA had been partnered with Walmart the year before for their 2011 Friends Boutique collection but replaced them with the new My Life As dolls. Read more about My Life As Dolls

New Adventures Dolls

New Adventures LLC Toys, founded in 2001 by siblings Beth and Joseph Reiling, has focused on offering innovative quality "girls' toys and dolls" at value prices. They've had several 18" dolls collections: Good Kids, B. Girlz, Style Girls, and more recently, Play Zone Style Girls.

Not a great deal of information exists today about these separate collections, so it's difficult to know anything for sure. But Good Kids may have been the first. . . Read more about New Adventures Dolls

Meritus Dolls

Meritus Industries, popular in the 1980s for their version of the Ginny doll line, sold a number of 18" dolls under various collections during the 1990s. Some of their more prodigious were the Elite/ LIfetime Dolls and Girls on the Go collections. In late 1999 they merged with DSI Toys and sold Disney Sweethearts dolls before closing up shop in 2003.
