Glitter Girls and Little Darlings

Today I finally opened up the Glitter Girls doll I purchased over a year ago (and it is not even raining today).

I decided to take her out of her box today, since I found her outfits and accessories on sale at Ollie's today. I purchased two sets. 

A travel set

And an outfit.

Meet Poppy. She is 14 inches tall, vinyl, and has long red hair. She is Battat's answer to the Wellie Wishers by American Girl.

The first thing I did was try on her new outfit. I love it. She looks great in it.

Though I probably would have her wear her original blue shoes with the outfit, instead of the yellow shoes.

Next, I wanted to compare Poppy to my Dianna Effner Little Darling doll, Merry. Poppy is a little larger, and her head is huge compared to Merry, but they are pretty close in size.

Merry could wear Poppy's outfit, 

 But the shoes were a bit too large for her.

 She looked much better in the overall outfit.

And Poppy could wear Merry's dress, but it is a little tight on her and doesn't fasten in the back.

I redressed Poppy in her original outfit, and the two girls played with the items from the travel pack. Poppy has on the glasses (too big for Merry's head), the travel bag, and the passport and passport-
holder. Merry has the camera and map of the U.S. (She is also wearing her own shoes and socks.)

I could not figure how to get them to hold the balloons, so I held them for this photo of the two dolls.

I'm glad that I saw the outfits and accessories on sale today. And I am extra happy that the outfits (not the shoes) fit the Little Darling dolls.

  1. The Glitter Girls doll and Poppy are cute. The size comparison is helpful and better illustrates the GG doll's oversized head. I don't have an Ollie's here, but I will share the GG doll's clothing sale info with others who do.

    Thanks for sharing.
