Walmart In Store Report!!

Hi Doll Friends!!

Just some quick photos of the 'new' My Life As items I am beginning to see in my various Walmart stores locally... I know I get a kick out of seeing them and so figure you might too. 


Here are some of the new season dolls. I love the one in the footy PJ's. I already got the Soccer Player and the Ballerina... Teehee. Maybe someday I'll get the new boy doll but I have loads of blonde boys in the doll house so... Maybe not? What trips me out is that on the My Life As Doll website they don't show any of the new stuff? Weird right?



Here is the kitchen in the new colors.


These three sets are all new. 


There is a store... Walmart actually. I think it's cute but again, I could create a store with items on hand and not have one more item to store...


This plant stand is the same as the older Ice Cream stands they used to sell... I already own two of them and have been making my own plants and so I am not really tempted to get this at all. 


This is really cute. Not sure I ever need to get it because, again, I feel like I could pull off making something similar for less money. But who knows, if it goes on clearance someday maybe?



Because it is pretty cute.


New boy clothes!! I didn't buy any because I honestly think you could get boy clothes off Etsy for about the same money made by some little granny somewhere and support a small business too. Still, cute!


Accessories galore!


There is the new loft bed and laundry room set...


This is did like! They improved the carrier bag for the dolls. I have the older version and I really do think it's top notch...


But I love that they added this handle on the side. Maybe I'll get another one sometime..? Cos I am always traveling with dollies! LOL


These are new! Much like last years clothes sets for the large dolls, these were three outfit sets for the mini dolls they sell. Very cute styles! I actually picked one up because I have two American Girl Doll Mini Dolls and they are in need of clothes!


They also released furniture for the mini dolls. Very cute. I am NOT going there. I have enough doll stuff with just my 18inch dolls! Hahaha.


Still, pretty doggone cute!



I saw these charm bracelets on clearance but... Didn't buy one. 


It's hit and miss for sure. A lot of Walmarts still look like they had a fire sale. 


This set is cute.... I love the marshmellow roasting sticks!

In one store they had a TON of these dolls on clearance for $13... Tempting!! But with that many left I am going to bide my time and check back in a week or so and see if they've been marked down again... Haha.

Better run if I am going to get to church on time!

Shuri Goes To Target and Hobby Lobby!

Greetings and Salutations Doll Friends!! 

Last Wednesday night when I went into town for church at Flatland, I went in a little early so I could take a few doll photos. I decided to take Shuri, since she'd recently gotten a makeover. She is the second oldest doll in the Doll House and I figured she would enjoy the outing. 


Here she is outside Target. Isn't she pretty in the sunshine?


She was excited to pick out a new accessories set! So many cute ones to choose from!


I love both of these dolls mostly for their outfits and accessories... I wish you could buy just their accessories and not the doll! They have released accessory/book sets from the premium dolls in the past though so maybe they will at some point or other. 


Look! They have larger dogs that are poseable! Very cute!


More dolls...


It's the new "Healthy Pet Vet Clinic"! I hadn't seen it in person before. It is really cute but it's HUGE and so I don't even know I ever want to get one? Not to mention it's $90.00 and I honestly think I could 'make' a vet clinic with accessory sets and 'found' furniture items for much much less. So I think this one isn't even ever going to be on my wish list. Still, cute!


The diner is so fun! I won't lie, I mostly love it for the accessories. Perhaps if I had a HUGE doll room with endless space expand the Doll House, I'd want the whole thing but as it is, I can play 'diner' with the doll items I already own. You know what I mean? American Girl Ideas blog made printables to help you make the accessories so I full plan to make a diner for the dolls at some point or another. Becasue I love greasy spoon diners! They are my favorite places to eat out!


This boat set is really cute but... Again... I don't think I really want one. I am not even sure where or when I'd use it? It'd make some great photos out by a lake or something but how often do I go out by lakes? Still, if I were a girl who did live by a body of water and/or liked to boat, it'd be a great set!



The Ice Cream truck is pretty adorable too... But one more thing I don't think I'll ever need to own. I have the Sweet Shoppe if my Dollies want to go out for some ice cream after all. 


It's the Camper!! s you may know if you read my blog, I recently got the camper for a song at Goodwill! So, while I may never have wanted one if I had to pay full price for it, I certainly am glad to have it. Of all the larger OG accessories they make, outside of the car that I also recently got as a gift, the camper is likely the one I would've chosen. So... like I say, so glad to have it!


This year they released it in pink! How cute!!


Here is the Jeep. It's cute but I wish they'd have made it like the car, wehre two dolls can fit in. 


Shuri had to sit in the pink car since they had one there. 


Here she about to ring up at the cash register. 


Since it was right in the same shopping center, we decided to visit Hobby Lobby. I love that store! If for no other reason than they are a Christian company who closes on Sunday so their employees can go to church and spend time with family. They also play Christian music on their sound system so I feel right at home there! Not to mention they have nifty items!


Here is Shuri by the huge display of scarecrows!



She's certainly safe from crows sitting there! Hahaha.


Here she is in the pretty aisle of fall colors...


We rounded the corner and found Christmas stuff! I am sure that a lot of people think it's way too early for Christmas stuff to be released but I can kind of undertand it in a craft store. If you're going to make crafts for Christmas craft shows, you need to be buying the stuff and making it now. So that makes sense. Don't get me started about Christmas stuff being out way too early at standard stores. If you have 'Christmas' around for two or three months, it kind of dilutes the specialness of it, eh? I digress.


Such pretty ornaments!!


These little trays of cookies and macaroons almost tempted me to buy them. They were 40% off... But I decided to hold off. Still, so cute!

And here are some newer styled gingerbread house ornaments! I got some last year on clearance and they are perfect for 18inch dolls! 


Here is Shuri with the Springfield Dolls. I have a few of them in the Doll House although they've long since been customized... Kevin Doll was made from an Olivia doll. I also have a Maria (not pictured here) that I gave a new wig and freckles to. They really are pretty decent dolls considering the price point of $21.99 and that you can get them at 40% off with a coupon nearly all the time. 



Shuri found this cute cowboy hat and had to try it on...


There were several kinds and sizes available. 


Here she is by the clothes!! They really have cute stuff.


I love the jewelry making stuff...! I wish I was better at knowing how to make doll jewelry... Someday I'll learn!


We had to take a photo of Shuri by this pretty mannequin... So fancy!


I love all the retro 'old signs' they sell...

These air fresheners always catch my eye because they look like doll sized scented candles... But they are like $6 and so I've never bought one... Yet.... Haha.

These photos of Shuri in the mirror aisle! They are probably my favorites of the day! So pretty!


So it was fun taking her out on a little adventure. Will have to come back sometime soon and show you which accessories set we picked out!

Till next time!
