New Doll

Review: Our Generation Rafael

This week I'm really happy to be reviewing Target's Our Generation new boy doll Rafael!

Rafael is pretty special because he's the first ever Our Generation boy doll. He's not, however, the first boy from Battat, the company who makes Our Generation dolls. In the 1990s, Battat had another 18" doll collection called Collector's Lane Kids, which included one boy doll and four girl dolls. Read more about Review: Our Generation Rafael

Review: My Life As School Boy (Blond)

Last year's debut of My Life As School Boy dolls by CItyToy stirred up the 18" boy doll market with their two school boys, giving AG's Logan Everett a run for his money. I reviewed them here.

This year My Life As has two more School Boys, this time in a bookish or preppy theme, as opposed to the sporty/ urban theme of last year's boys. I was able to pick up the blond boy this week to review. Read more about Review: My Life As School Boy (Blond)

Yes or No?

My latest treasure hunt has been for boy dolls! With Valentines Day coming up and some super cute ideas for V-Day dresses and outfits, I wanted a little boyfriend romance for some of my girls. Admittedly though, I have been lacking in the boy department. Now, there have been a few boy dolls offered by the different doll companies over the years, but sadly not nearly enough. There are of course girl dolls who have been remade into boy dolls by some creative doll fans. . . Read more about Yes or No?

Hannah and her Dog!

I can't believe Hannah of Hannah's World | Hannah and her Dog fame popped in on eBay and I can't believe no one nabbed her the first time around. I didn't have the funds so I watched her go by-by with a sigh and a tear. But sure enough, she came back around at a lower price, and up to the last minute no one bid on her again, so I was able to get her! I'm so happy!

She's the 2014 version (there's a new Hannah and her Dog every year) called "Gold Dust Hannah." This doll, no matter the version. . . Read more about Hannah and her Dog!

Did That Really Just Happen?!

Did I just buy what I think is a MAG #26 on eBay for somewhere in the $20 range?!

I have been admiring this little beauty with her bouncy brown curls and amber eyes since, well, forever! Well let's face it, my budget is pretty limited and I haven't bought that many American Girl dolls in general; I usually stick to the lower end dolls for my clothing models. I definitely didn't have any AGs who looked like this girl. . . Read more about Did That Really Just Happen?!

I Just Got a Hannoid!

No I don't require medical attention lol. Let me explain.

So I splurged (a little) and just got myself a Gotz Hannah at long last! Well, she's really more of a Anna than a Hannah, more like Hannah-oid, but it all works out to about the same in the end since they are essentially the same model.

Hannahs are a bit pricey for me, but Anna the Hannah twin popped up on eBay for significantly less than Hannah tends to go for, and I. . . Read more about I Just Got a Hannoid!
