It’s been two years since I attended New York Toy Fair and while I didn’t miss it much last year, I definitely miss it this year. Few bloggers cover all the dolls that I saw. There are so many emerging market dolls or dolls that aren’t so mainstream.
Like My Ballerina Dolls. I LOVED meeting those guys in 2015. Did you know they came out with with that prince doll? Yeah! And they also released a Snow Queen doll last year, too! This year at Toy Fair they announced THE MOST ADORABLE DOLL ever. Look at her:
This is the Dew Drop Fairy. I have no idea how tall she is in comparison to the other dolls (they are huge!) If you want more information, you’ll have to head to the @myballerinadolls Instagram, because I haven’t seen anyone covering these awesome dolls.
I’ll add more Toy Fair coverage as I hear from other sources or find information via social media from the companies themselves, but I’m interested to hear from you guys about this new My Ballerina Doll. Will she be on your watch list?
Information about this doll was very scarce, but I had heard rumors of a Collector’s Edition Skelita doll earlier this year. Turns out, those rumors were true and Amazon now has a pre-order for this doll available in August 2016. I’ve already made my pre-order purchase! I can’t wait to see more of this doll! There are a few images of her circling from Toy Fair, but she wasn’t shown in the main Mattel hall, she was only shown in the backroom, which I still don’t know how to access, even after going last year. I have no idea if she is larger like the Collector’s Edition Draculaura was, but she is priced more reasonably at $29.99. (Amazon lists the product dimensions at 2.5 x 9 x 12.8 inches)
Will you be adding this Special Edition doll to your collection?
Have you heard the news?! Barbie has a new body! Well, there are actually 3 new body styles now, with a 4th being called “Original”. Mattel has added Curvy, Petite, and Tall Barbie to the lineup.
This is such a big deal that Time Magazine has even done an article about it!
Want to see more?? Continue reading
The image above popped up on tumblr today with the caption: “2016 Hasbro Disney Princess Fashion dolls”
I have no further information, but thought I would share. What do you think? Do you like the new look of the Disney Princess dolls? Or do you like the Mattel version better?
Have you seen these “First Chapter” dolls that Amazon is posting? They are a collection of Apple White, Raven Queen, and Madeline Hatter. The only new thing about them, though, is their facial mold is different. They are smiling!
The dolls can be found on Amazon here: Apple White, Raven Queen, and Madeline Hatter.
I’ve ordered the Apple White doll to see if they really do have these facial molds, or if this is a change that might be coming. She is expected to arrive on Saturday, so I’ll let you know what I get!
