Well that really got me thinking and therefore here are my very own “Top 10 Fashion Doll Wants”! 1. I love an ... »

Reporting From Paris Fashion Doll Festival Part 2

The main event on the Saturday of Paris Fashion Doll Festival weekend is the banquet luncheon and the silent auction that precedes it. However, the day was getting off to a rather shaky start what with all festivities of the previous night at ‘Disco 3000’ and we were running, or rather shuffling, somewhat late. We needn’t have worried, of course, as according to custom the Luncheon was running eve... »

The Paris Doll Expo site has been updated with an itinerary of the weekend’s events. Needless to say I am getting most excited at the prospect of the Superfrock “Disco 3000” event on Friday evening.

Tonner Reveals Antoinette at IDEX

At the 2009 IDEX Doll Show in Florida Tonner Dolls unveiled a brand new fashion doll to their already swollen roster called Antoinette. She is 16″ tall and has 15 points of articulation. I must say I am a little disappointed mostly because when I saw the name Antoinette announced on the Tonner website at the end of January I rather imagined Marie Antoinette the rudely deceased Queen of Franc... »
