New dollies!

I usually stalk Amazon Warehouse Deals for reduced doll prices.  Sometimes, I get lucky and sometimes I lose out, if I wait too long to place the order.

I was so happy to see DC Super Hero girls 12" doll prices close to US$10.00.  I already have Poison Ivy and Bumble Bee and wanted to get a different doll, mostly for her body (I was waiting for the WWE Superstars Fashion dolls to drop in price, but their prices aren't going down low enough for me).  I chose Katana because I didn't have her skin tone.

When she got here, I fell in love with her face and hair, even thought I don't like her mask.  I thought I might be able to remove the mask and searched online and found this photo from Bubbles C. on Flickr.  So, it can be done and I will be trying it.

I don’t know why it took me so long to decide on which Disney Moana I wanted.  I'm so glad I got the Hasbro one, even though she has no wrist joint. She has knee joints!  She's so cute!  I think I want another one.

I love tiny dollies and wanted to try one of the Barbie On The Go mini dolls. There are single dolls and dolls with motorised accessories, a horse, a car and a scooter. The singles cost much more on Amazon, than on Mattel's website, so I was happy to see this one with the scooter on Amazon at nearly the same price as the singles on Amazon. Plus, I love bikes and scooters.

I was a little concerned when taking her out of the package that her head looked loose and was knocking against the plastic.  When I took a closer look, I realised that she has a bobble head!

While doing a 'doll' search on Amazon, I came across The Kruselings dolls.  I searched online and found these links:
In addition to being cute, they’re articulated!  Amazon only had the boy, Michael, as a single doll, and Luna and Chloe in separate clothing sets.

The doll and clothing combination sets cost a lot more than the single doll.  I really only wanted the singles - Michael, Luna and Sofia.  The single dolls were all available from a marketplace seller, but I prefer to purchase from Amazon, so I decided to take the Luna set and the single Michael from Amazon.

I'm looking forward to photographing outdoor adventures with these cuties.
