Welcome to our second look at the Holiday Barbie series of dolls that are celebrating their 25th anniversary as a collectors’ festive favourite. Yesterday we covered the dolls for years 1993-1995, so yes you guessed it, today we will be looking at the remaining 2 years, plus a tantalising hint of what to expect from Holiday Barbie 2013.

This last Saturday at the Italian Doll Convention in Milan I had the pleasure of spending some time with Charles and Desmond from Superdoll Collectables. I was further sent into overdrive when they very kindly allowed me to photograph a prototype doll. Shame I only had my iPhone to hand! I am not allowed to give away too many details, but amusingly Charles said that this doll’s look reminded him “of a macaroon”!
Well whatever she looks like, I’m sure you will agree she is…Read More

The Saturday just gone saw the first online unveiling of Integrity Toys 2013 Doll lines exclusively for their W Club members. In a break with tradition, and in response to member feedback, the online unveiling is being broken down into 4 unveiling a spread over the year. By doing it this way the hope is that there isn’t a ‘peaking too soon’ effect with all the new dolls for the year being revealed at once. Also, and perhaps more importantly, it gives the fans a chance to…Read More

Yesterday saw the second of the Superdoll Collectables Ultra Vicious Dolls, Cadenza, go on sale. However within a couple of hours she was sold out and it must be said that I am glad The Boys are keeping dolls online for a couple of days rather than removing them as soon as all the girls are sold… So helpful for those of us who miss seeing what all the fuss is about!
Cadenza is a Voltaire sculpt “Wearing a figure hugging dropneck sequined dress. Rose coloured eyeshadow with black…Read More
