The Integrity Toys The Industry Dolls:
Come Thru! Tulabelle True
Blogger and fashion influencer Tulabelle True is well known by every fashion enthusiast in the world. Not only is she the grand-daughter of famous 60’s teenage model Poppy Parker, but her fashion blog, TRUE STYLE, now followed by millions across the world, sets the tone for everything that’s considered cool by a new generation of fashionistas always looking for the next hot thing to wear and do. Very much sought after by industry insiders, Tulabelle has become a major front row presence at fashion shows across the globe and since she became involved with hot fashion designer Tate Tanaka (grand-son of Poppy’s friend Tina Tanaka!), Tulabelle’s name is on every “who’s who” list!
I love Tulabelle’s wild red hair, and she has a cute face. Not totally bowled over… but the DOLLFACE purse is to die for!
Style Savior Liu Liu Ling
Fashion stylist Liu Liu Ling is popular with designers and has collaborated with every big name in the industry, helping to finalize collections and add that final polish needed to make every new style shine and jump out, whether on the runway or on the red carpet! Since meeting through designer Tate Tanaka, Liu Liu has become fast friends with Tulabelle and the pair is always seen about town, shopping for the perfect accessories!
This is the only doll I ordered. She reminds me of a rich man’s LA Girl Barbie Fashionista. I’m intrigued to see the new articulated flat foot she comes with. She has cool accessories too.
Zine Queen Binx Barone
Fashion Editor Binx Barone works for one of the top fashion publications in the world: CLASS. With her no-nonsense attitude, Binx has been known to make or break designers and has never shied away from really expressing her feelings about new collections. Invited to attend Tate Tanaka’s big debut on the runway, everyone on Tate’s team is a little nervous about the “dragon editor’s” feedback, but Tulabelle has Binx’s ear and since they both loved what they saw, Tate is sure to get glowing reviews!
My least favourite of the girls in the line. However, as with all the dolls in this collection, she does come with some awesome accessories. I really need an iPad for the girls!
Believe the Hype Tate Tanaka
Grandson of famed 60’s TV actress Tina Tanaka, young Tate Tanaka discovered his passion for fashion while admiring all of the cool costumes his grandmother wore on the set of the hit TV series THE GIRL FROM I.N.T.E.G.R.I.T.Y! Deciding to become a designer was a natural choice for him and he’s now ready to take his first steps under the tents of fashion week, alongside his sweetheart Tulabelle True, whom he met at a cast reunion while visiting his grandmother and her best friend, Poppy Parker!
Beauty Boss Cabot Clark
Cabot Clark is the most sought-after hair and makeup artist and is one of the top members of the go-to celebrity “glam squad”! Known to invent new techniques on the spot to maximize the look of any model, Cabot only uses the best products available, including cutting-edge offerings from W Cosmetics, Missima and a few others that he never speaks about; that’s his real secret… Our guy has stuff in his arsenal that would make anyone look amazing under any light! Tate Tanaka’s go to style guy, Cabot is an integral part of Tate’s newfound success!
I won’t be buying this guy… but I really need his make-up accessories! I do hope IT release some separate accessory packs at some point.
All the dolls retail at $125, which is not bad for all the bits and pieces they come with.
