Greetings and Salutations Doll Friends!
As I mentioned in a recent post, I was lucky enough to find some My Life As Doll Mini Dolls for only $2.50 each recently! So I bought four! Why four? Well, two for here at the Doll House because I have a lot of dolls who need doll friends! Then of course I bought one for my sister friend Frann because she and I love to have twinsy things. The fourth? Well, to give away in a drawing here on the blog!!
That's right! The little School Girl Mini Doll will be given away in a drawing! How do you enter drawing? Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy!! You just go and 'like' the PCR American Doll House Facebook Page and share the post there about the contest on your own Facebook page. That's it, super easy!
I will draw the name of the contest winner on Sunday September 3, 2017 at 6PM Central Standard Time.*Contest only open to people in the United States or APO addresses due to postage costs!!*
(Sorry international readers, I only have so much money to devote to my little blog here)
One other reason I bought two of the mini dolls for the Doll House was that I wanted to be able to change clothes between them and the two American Girl Doll Mini Dolls I own. I don't need a ton of clothes for them but an outfit change here and there might be fun. I actually bought one of the new My Life As Doll Mini Doll clothing sets the same day I got the mini dolls for same reason.
This is the set I picked. I love the little horse shirt and the boots! So cute!
Here are my two American Girl Doll Mini's alongside one of the two Mini's I bought for the Doll House. One thing I've never really understood about the MLA Mini's is why they decided to make them an inch taller than the American Girl Mini's and the Our Generation Minis? It's one of the reasons I never bought one before. I've decided to think of them like Karito Kids of which I have one in my own collection. They are a smidge taller than 18inches so it makes total sense. Right? Hahaha. I am such a dork sometimes. How I have to have 'stories' for all my Doll House residents. Teehee.
However, even though they are a smidge taller, I thought they would likely still be able to share clothes.
So I went to changing the clothes one of the new dolls I'd opened (the second will be opened by Heather Doll in an upcoming blog post!) and the American Girl Mini's.
Not before I took a bunch of photos of the four Mini Dolls. They are just so cute!
Here is the back of the boxes.
And here are the dolls all changed into different clothes. I was super sad to realize that the red shirt my Julie Mini had been wearing had stained her arms red. Boohoo. I hate it when that happens. The clothes fit pretty well despite them being a bit different in height. However, the shoes were not a perfect fit fot the American Girl Minis. The MLA Doll Mini shoes are too big. As you can see, I put the boots on Julie anyway and they look pretty cute and you can't tell they are too big. The slip on shoes though won't work at all for the AG Mini's. Bummer! Oh well... The good news being that the school girlie I am having the drawing for comes with black boots! So, if you have an AG mini and are the winner, you'll be able to share the boots on that doll with your AG Mini. How fun! One of my favorite parts of doll collecting is the fun of having them share clothes and accessories. So it'll be fun to make a scene of Heather Doll and Frann Doll playing dolls and changing out their dollies outfits. Of course that'll be a future blog post...
Well, I better run. Good luck in the drawing!
Have a great week!
