Immortalised on Wikipedia!

The relevant article uses a post I made about the Barbie Basic range a while back and is even entered as the number one reference for the article. Cool! The entry is a pretty comprehensive account of those wonderful Barbie Basic Little Black Dress (LBD) dolls and I am only too happy to have been of assistance! You ... »

My Top 10 Fashion Doll Wants!

My Top 10 Fashion Doll Wants!

I’ve had a severe case of writers block these last few weeks and in order to stir the creative juices decided to make a plea via Twitter for some inspirational suggestions. One very helpful Twitter-er, Mothdoll, suggested writing about the dolly things I’d like to see but aren’t yet true.

Mattel’s Mad Hatter!

Although I am not exactly a fan of Tim Burton I am a fan of the Alice in Wonderland story. So I must say my first look at this photo of Mattel’s Johnny Depp‘s Mad Hatter have rather impressed me. The sculpt looks amazingly accurate and the outfit has great attention to detail. Here is the Mattel blurb: “Tim Burton brings his unique take on a favorite story to the Disney film, Ali... »
