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.

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.

Review: My Life As School Boy

I couldn't wait to get my hands on CitiToy's My Life As School Boy, although I guess I'm a little late to the party. They debuted last year!

Actually, when I originally began this review, I only had the Caucasian doll. But I held off completing it until I tracked down the African American doll to get a more complete review in the end. Good things come to those who wait. Read more about Review: My Life As School Boy

American Boy Logan Everett Review

After years (probably decades) of American Girl fans asking for a boy doll, AG has released their first "American Boy," Logan Everett. It feels a bit like the old best friend doll days with Logan's debut, as his release accompanies AG rising country music star Tenney Grant, whose backup drummer happens to be--you guessed it: Logan Everett.

First-Borns Part II

Onto Part II of my First-Borns Project. (Again apologies for poor lighting. I had zero% natural sunlight as the skies rained for days!)

So I had fairly good success with my first two First-Borns, English Boy and Punkin Princess (for lack of better names). So I grabbed another four blank heads and got to work on them. Read more about First-Borns Part II

First-Born Customs Part I

Here's what been occupying me for the last couple of weeks: I had a whole lot of blank doll heads that needed some love and they weren't going away. Previously I had been focusing on cleaning up and restoring some TLC dolls I had picked up on eBay, listing them, selling, and trying to create some working space for myself!

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.
