Manufactured Pop Bands... Literally

Posted on November 15, 2012 at 7:00 AM Comments comments (0)

So it seems that the ranks of manufactured plastic pop artistes Justin Bieber, JLS and One Direction will be joined on the shelves by new mini Little Mix lookalikes...

Well, though I say 'lookalikes', the concensus seems to be that the dolls don't really do their namesakes justice.  Little Mix themselves look happy enough with them, though, but that may be due to the rumoured six-figure sum they received to have their likenesses used ;D

A New Look for the Site

Unless your eyemech is jammed you will have noticed that the site has a new look, I hope that you approve :)

This is just a quick note to say that there is more to me than dolls, although dolls play a very central role of course!

I am planning to branch out a little bit and include posts on subjects that aren't strictly doll related as well as adding some more general vintage and handmade items to the store.

Please stay tuned for more... (well check back rather than stay tun...

The Thinking Doll Has a New Mascot

Posted on March 3, 2012 at 5:05 AM Comments comments (0)

She is a Mattel Liddle Kiddle 'Tracy Trikediddle' from between 1968 and 1970, which makes her even older than I am (though she has aged better!)

She is very excited about her new job as dolly ambassador and looks forward to making man...

I really hope that they do our girl justice, but I do have my doubts considering the quality of some of the other toy/animation tie ins of the past.  I'm also not convinced of the ethical merits of this sort of di...
