Dolly Days 2017: Swinging London Poppy Parker Collection Round Two

I can't be the only one experiencing some Poppy fatigue this year. I believe we are currently at 20 dolls (and counting) revealed so far in 2017. Oye. Now lucky for me, I have only bought a few for the clothing and sent them on their nekkid merry little way. I think only the ash blonde Style Lab convention poppy has remained in my house (Rainbow has not left her box yet...still haven't decided on her) and the British Invasion will stick around too. I skipped the latest Christmas (but not in time for Christmas) Golden Holdiday Poppy club doll and was feeling pretty confident in my willpower to ignore this second round. But of course, the latest offering is killer once again. I'm a monkey on crack.

Poppy outshines the top British celebrities at one of London's most affluent clubs, where the entire "who's who" of the time would go to be "seen". It's so easy when you are Poppy Parker to outshine every star!
Poppy Parker is a 12-inch fully articulated fashion doll with perfectly rooted hair and hand applied eyelashes. She wears a stylish knee-length satin overcoat over a perfectly tailored little black dress. With her sleek hair styled in a swanky braided ponytail and the rest of her look accessorized "just right", she fits right in with the top British models and celebs of her time! For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

Nice but I am passing. I try to avoid black when possible. Collectors have pointed out that she is similar to the recent Rapunzel AA Poppy from the convention in hair and screening. And the Frug is a dance...in case you were not a theatre Fosse nerd.

As part of her stint in London, Poppy was invited to perform top hits from Bonbon, her French album, on British TV. For the appearances, she hand-picked the absolute grooviest looks! Everyone remembers her TV performances fondly even today, as the videos are still being shared all over the world several generations later!

Poppy is a fully articulated 12-inch fashion doll with groovy rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes. This giftset includes two complete outfits, a guitar, jewelry and two pairs of shoes, everything Poppy needed for her costume changes! For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

Um yup. Ordered! I adore these fashions...but more for Tulabelle and the Industry gals. This is going to be adorable on them! Not sure I will keep Poppy though. I like the hair color but she is not screaming KEEP ME. Such a cute set. I'm going to need some striped or polka dot trousers to go with this set.

Poppy's tour of London included a lot of sight-seeing and as the expression says, when in London... Do like a Londoner would!
For her last days in town, Poppy opted for a stylish plaid ensemble to protect herself from the chilly autumn breeze, a chic look that made her feel right at home as she explored the marvels of London one last time!
Poppy Parker is a 12-inch fully articulated doll with luscious, fully rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes. She comes dressed in a scrumptious plaid ensemble, composed of a lovely cape, a skirt and a matching beret. She completes the look with a modern turtleneck shirt, fishnet stockings and tall electric blue boots. Poppy also comes with her groovy necklace, a pair of painted on "gloved hands", a purse and earrings. Truly the perfect look for the season! For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

This one is adorable. I will definitely try for her. I'm intensely in love with that sweater and medallion. I'm sad that the lottery for her is not until next year since I currently have three memberships this year (don't ask) and would have had better odds. I will likely get two for next year and hope the odds are still in my favor. The outfit is so cute and I really like the hair and screening. I think it might get a bit cutthroat when it comes to lottery time for this girl but since the edition size is TBA...that might mean a massive edition size.

Poppy decided to go full groovy in this absolutely adorable and fun look! She's ready to party and have fun at one of London's most modern clubs and show her wild side!

This fantastic Poppy Parker doll is 12-inch tall and fully articulated and features hand-applied eyelashes. Her stylish totally MOD hair is perfectly trimmed in a short, sleek bob and Poppy wears a fun tiger print mini-dress under a bright pink fur coat that absolutely makes an impression at first sight! Shoes, handbag and jewelry complete the look for even more pop! For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

So cute. Ordered! Again this outfit is going to look awesome on the Industry gals and be fun paired with the You better Work Tulabelle set from the Supermodel Convention. I like this short hair AA Poppy. I might like her better than Just My Style Poppy from last year. I think this doll is also convincing me to keep Big Eyes Poppy from last year as well. They will pair so nicely together. The Jem collector in me sees this print and thinks it looks just like a Jem fashion too...hmmmm.

Well the saving grace is that these dolls aren't due to ship until the spring. But then of course there will be another onslaught of Poppies for next year. One collector likened Poppy collecting to "drinking from a fire hose". Agreed.  I am considering a NUCLEAR option for next year and going on a Poppy hunger strike...and maybe skipping the mainline dolls altogether and just going for outfits if I love them. We shall see. It is so hard to be strong when they are always so cute. But I currently have a nice solid collection with a variety of Poppy "flavors"...and when I get too many then I can't even see them in the case let alone have time to redress and photo them. The dolly struggle is real y'all.
