New Integrity 2016- The Industry Preview

Not sure about this one.  I just don't think I have the mental bandwidth to deal with another body type at this point in time.  I think it is an interesting concept and I might be tempted by it later...but for now I am resisting. Lots of folks seem excited that this doll will be able to wear the older shoes and possibly Barbie doll shoes.

Integrity 2016- Poppy Bon Bon Collection

They already got me to order the super cute W Club Oh La La Exclusive Poppy set a couple of weeks ago. Now we get to see the rest of David Butry's newest Poppy Parker Bon Bon Collection and it is equally tempting.  This super cute grouping and has great mix and match potential.  I am resisting all but one...I had to get Springtime in Paris mostly because of the wicker purse, the purple glove hands, and the poodle. Even though most of integrity's dogs look like horrible fur experiments...I still find them cute and irresistible. Plus that dress is adorable! I think it will look sweet on the Lilac Mood Changers Poppy. I like this high pony tail on the doll proper but  I already have a raven poppy (Mood Changers) so we will see which one stays and which one goes. I am trying to keep the collection from getting too huge again...a lofty goal what with convention coming in October.  I recently widdled the Poppy girls down: (Mood Changers Raven & Lilac, Girl from Integrity, and O…

Integrity 2016 New Releases- Jem and the Holograms On Stage Collection

Well, I thought I was going to be strong. After finally breaking the "completion curse" and selling off some of my least favorite Jem dolls (Astral, Anthony, Broadway Magic, Craig Phillips, Raya), I now feel free to ONLY get the must haves. However, this collection was too tempting to resist. There was a nice deal for Club members to get an extra $25 off if you pre-ordered the whole jam. Riot, the doll I am most jazzed for, is already in stock and I was able to combine the shipping with the twins set.  What can I say...I'm a pushover.
The boxes are super neat. I might just have to get a second Detolf cabinet in order to display all my Jem dolls and one or two of these cases. I have the original Hasbro Rockin' Backstager as well and I will be interested to see how they look next to each other. Though perhaps I will just send it to my office for display with my vintage Jem and Pizzazz. I have been slowly letting my doll collection infiltrate my office (because THAT&#…
