The dolly shelves have gotten a little crowded and some girls have to go. These three Joy dolls from my personal collection are going on eBay tonight, starting at 6:45 PT. I hope that they find fun adventures and appreciative homes. Check out some more pictures…..
It had to happen. Wilde Imagination’s latest incarnations of cute made their way to my home and I had to share it with the web world. They may not be for you if you have an issue with eyes following you across the room, but if you appreciate dolls with big eyes (check), dolls with eyes that move (check), dolls with sweet faces (check), and dolls with highly articulated bodies (check), this may be something you’ll want to look into…..

I say, no, it’s not. More is more!” So I’ve been selling off my SBLs, my RBLs, my EBLs, and I’m about to sell off a BL, so that I can finally enjoy the elusive Kenner! Here she is, soaking off the vintage dirt, in all her glory!
