18" Dolls do Social Distancing

Bored with being at home, the 18" dolls decided to have a meeting of the "We are 18" and Love Dolls" Doll Club via video-conference. It was decided unanimously that the dress code would be pajamas.

Sadie attended in her new PJs and with her new sleeping bag. 

She showed off her Disney Aulani Turtle, Olu, to her friends. Her parents brought it back to her as a souvenir of their recent Hawaii trip. She is excited that he matches her pajamas.

Her PJ outfit consists of a flared top, long pant bottoms, fuzzy slippers, and a sleep mask.

Her sleeping bag looked so comfy that she decided to take a nap after the virtual meeting.

It was Harmony's turn to give the doll presentation.

So, wearing her UFDC Doll Dialogues button, she talked about her growing collection of dolls.

Her outfit has fluffy bunny slippers, shorts, a top, and a soft and warm purple robe.

Julie checked in from her funky playroom. Isn't it groovy?


She wore her new purple satin pajamas and white slippers.

Melody set up her workstation in the family room, after kicking her brother out of it.

She wore leopard print pants, a matching sleeveless top, and a matching robe and slippers with pink accents.

After Harmony's presentation, Melody showed the other girls her favorite baby doll.

While the girls were happy to get together virtually, they hope that the pandemic ends soon so they can get together and have a real, in-person doll club meeting and slumber party together.

The outfits for the dolls are all from My Doll's Life by Sophia's, an on-line doll clothing store. I won the outfits from a Facebook drawing.

The outfits are of exceptional quality and fit the dolls beautifully. The shorts are a little tight on Harmony, but that is because her bottom is fuller than the other dolls.

Stay safe and stay at home. Protect yourself and others.

Supergirl to the Rescue

In times like these it would be awesome if the superheroes from comic books, TV shows, and movies were real and could save us from the scary things.

So today I decided to open up this 8" Madame Alexander Supergirl from 2015.

Batman and Catwoman were also released in this line, but are not shown on the back of the box.

I was happy to find out that she is jointed at the elbows and knees for super-heroic posing options.

With the flash on, I can see that her eyes are a dark blue.

The illusion of flying.

Supergirl would never hoard toilet paper and always remembers to wash her hands.

You should too, so that Supergirl doesn't need to come to your rescue.

The No School Blues

As in many states, schools have been closed here to help stop the spread of Covid 19. This means that I am at home, instead of at the middle school I work at. It has only been a week, but I already miss it. So today I decided to set up a school photo shoot.

I don't have any desks or school backdrops, but I could dress up the Licca dolls in school uniforms.

Ren is even carrying some school books home.

This Licca is wearing a school outfit from about 2 years ago. It came with eyeglasses, unlike the older outfit.

Ren is wearing the outfit he came in and carrying some of the books that came with the older outfit.

This doll is wearing the older school outfit from around 2012. The light blue bag holds her indoor school shoes - something that all students should have.

The three students are walking home after a rigorous day at school.

They got sidetracked on their way home from school and decided to browse at a second hand store.

They were so surprised to see these beautiful antique dolls.

Licca really wanted one, but couldn't decide which one to get.

Ren was no help. He kept telling her that the cat was the cutest. 

In the end, she decided to get both.
