Greetings Doll Friends!
As you may realize, I am always on the lookout for 14-20" dolls. Second hand, new, vintage or modern, I am always on look out out for good candidates for the Doll House to tell you about. So, as I was reading a doll blog one day, a writer mentioned she had purchased one of her dolls at Kohl's. Kohl's! There is a Kohl's five minutes from my house! So I drove over there one day to check it out. Not a thing! I mean, toys to be sure but only preschool ones mostly... So, I scratched them off my mental list as a 'source' and didn't think much more about it.
Fast forward to my dear husband needing socks and underwear. We ran out to Kohl's to pick some up and low and behold the clerk said "such and such a sale is also good ONLINE" *light bulb goes off* So we go home and I go check their website for 18" dolls... First all I saw was Madame Alexander variety. Don't get me wrong, I love me some Madame Alexander and that is probably the sort of doll I was reading about in original blog that made me realize Kohl's may have dolls. However, I have several already and don't need another (unless one finds me at a Thrift Store and then all bets are off!) However, scrolling down, I came across this little lady:
"Huh? Who are you?!" Cute outfit! Pretty face! 18" inches... #GirlsLife Doll? Never heard of them?!
See her sister dolls? How have I missed these before now? There are four of them!
This one was my second favorite... I think. I still can't decide!
I love her glasses and cute style!
This one is pretty too except for her unfortunate choice in lip color. If I got her, she would have new shade as soon as possible. Then she would be drop dead gorgeous!
I mean look at that hair!
Then there is the blonde one. As most of you know (maybe?) I generally always chose dolls that are not blonde haired and blue eyed. Why? Well, one, that is what I look like. Boring! I've been looking at that color combo my whole life. Second? Nearly every doll ever made when I was a kid had that exact coloring and again, boring. So... Sorry blonde dolls of world. Unless I find you really cheap, you'll not be joining Doll House. I digress...
She is pretty though, I'll give her that.
So... Then I realize she is on sale, no less. AND the sale the clerk told me about would make her 15% off that. So, you guessed it. Harper is on her way. She will be here between October 1st and 6th! I HAD to buy her! As a public service to the doll community! Because I can not find one WORD of information about these dolls ANYWHERE. It's like they don't exist other than in the depths of Kohl's website?! So... Let's check them out. Pretty sure if I like the way they're made, that pretty girl in glasses will be coming home at some point too. Ha! They seem to be similar in body type to BFC Ink and Disney Princess and Me dolls. We shall see... We shall see...
Till next time!
PS I just found this photo of the dolls with the little girl who modeled for their packaging. I can't find any other information or even these photos in her Instagram but it showed a photo of the doll in the box!
