Can anyone recommend a website or other resource that provides reviews/discussions of fashion doll lines?
I've found some good blogs that discuss new dolls as they become available (The Doll Observer, Collecting Fashion Dolls, Dolldom, Dolly Daily, DollyPanic!, The Fashion Doll Chronicles, Fashion Doll Review, et al.), and they are very enjoyable. However, what I would like to read is something that discusses an entire line of fashion dolls (Sybarites, Fashion Royalty, Numina, Ficon, JAMIEshow, Alexandria Fairchild Ford, Barbie, Urban Vita, the various Tonner and Doug James doll lines, etc.), and preferably compare/contrast with other lines.
The objective is to learn what lines are available, their strengths and weaknesses, recommended dolls from each line, and what to look out for.
I'm new to the "other than Barbie" world of collecting dolls and have managed to pick up a few of the different dolls, but I'd still benefit from a more general education on them all. Any tips would be appreciated.
