Vintage Wooden Doll Crib

This weekend, I helped friends move from one house to another. As a thank you gifts, I was given a vintage wooden doll crib.

This crib is larger than the doll crib I had as a child in the 1970s, and is all wood - no particle board in sight. The sides do not go up and down and the crib has wheels, so I am thinking this might be from the 50s. It also has a cute applique of rabbits on one end - I will see about getting a pic of it later.

Horsman Thirstee Walker looks on as some of the younger babies try out the new crib.

Vogue Ginny Baby, Ideal Rub-A-Dub Dolly,

Eugene "Not Suzy", and Kay Sam 4476.

I look forward to incorporating this fabulous crib into my doll displays.

Uta Brauser's Belinda

A doll friend gifted me this beautiful doll when she was making space in her home.

She is Belinda by Uta Brauser and marketed through Elite Dolls. (I am unsure of what year she is from, but most likely the 1990s.)

She is an impressive 20 inches tall.

Her delicate features are set off by an exquisitely beaded gown and abundance of rich, brown curls.

She would make an excellent Sofia from the book Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron.

Thank you, Sherry, for such a beautiful addition to my doll collection.

Tall Fashionistas Join the Family

 Since I recently unboxed Man-bun Fashionista Ken, I decided that today I would unbox the last two Fashionistas in the house that are still in their boxes.

Fashionista Tall - Doll 33 - Fab Fringe (2016)

and Fashionista Tall - Doll 80 (2018).

Doll 80 was a must buy for me, since she reminds me of P.J. Soles in Rock n Roll High School.

Can you see the resemblance? Uncanny, isn't it?

While I do appreciate the over-sized sweatshirt dress on her, I probably will eventually dress her as Rif Randall, P.J. Soles's character in the movie.

Fab Fringe is perfect as she is. One of the few female Fashionistas that is dressed decently.

The other Fashionistas decided a group photo was warranted.

Happy World Doll Day, I hope yours is filled with dolls.
