Don't Ever Move With a Doll Collection

 The move and 3 months later.

We survived. This house is smaller than the last as we intended but the property is about 4 times larger. Possibly a mistake there because Bob can't do as much as he used to.

The huge basement scares me. There are 4 "rooms." The windows are awful. Dust comes in. It's a very old house. That's enough about the house. We love the area. I love looking out the windows and seeing trees. That is a joy. 

The doll room. OMG. First of all, I wasn't physically well for two months. That seriously sucked! Can you imagine that I have two new Kingdom Dolls that are still in their boxes? There will probably be three more before the end of September. 

I have begun unpacking my Tonner dolls. After all these years, I still love Tyler and Co. Many will go in the doll cabinet I have placed in our dining room.  I packed most of them dressed or partly dressed which was a big time saver and they looked too beautiful to change.

The following photos are from the first few days we lived here. It's better now but not much.

All the moving boxes are unpacked now. I'm still trying to figure out how and where to locate the small and medium cases. My Ikea showcases are mostly along one wall but I'm thinking of moving them. Of course I am. Are we ever finished rearranging our doll rooms?

I made what I thought was a little video but when I tried to upload it, the app told me it exceeded permitted size. I'll try again.  I'm not familiar with converting video clips to stills or with making the file sizes smaller on videos. I'm sure there is an app on my Mac to do it but I have never gone there.

More, soon. 


We're Moving!

How to Manage These 4 Common Moving Day Mistakes

 Finally, after so many years of wanting to move, we found a house in the area I wanted to be in. 

The dolls and their clothing and accessories are packed. 

That was a nightmare. 

If you want me to reserve something for you until I unpack fully,

(in April) please let me know.

Fang Vote JINAFIRE LONG Doll, a new Monster High product...ENDS TODAY!

 I have to admit that when I saw this doll it stopped me in its tracks. A few years ago, I had a small Monster High collection. They were adorable but did not have the attraction for me that would make me continue to buy them. Jinafire Long is one I would have added. 

The details are so much fun and the total package is so creative.

       Monster High 2024 Fang Vote Jinafire Long Doll $ 90.00  Pre-Order

Fang Club members helped design this doll for all Monster High fans! You’d expect some serious drip from a Fanghai fashion designer, and Jinafire Long doll brings it just in time for the Year of the Dragon. She appears as if she’s rising from the water in this absolutely ghoul-amorous gown inspired by her unique scaritage. Members submitted thousands of votes for her hairstyle, makeup, jewelry, nails, purse, shoes, and doll stand. The final creation is one you’ll crave for your collection.

  • Monster High 2024 Fang Vote Jinafire Long Doll 
  • 11 inches tall 
  • Articulated for maximum posablility 
  • Includes ornate headpiece, coordinated jewelry, and purse 
  • Package artwork shows her rising from the sea, displaying her dress’s full train 
  • Doll box design features golden embellishments and textured embossing 
  • Includes Certificate of Authenticity 

Orders for the made-to-order item will be taken from 2/9/24 at 12:01AM PT until 2/23/24 at 11:59 PM, PT (the “sale window”), with no purchase limits. Mattel may shorten or extend the sale window at its sole discretion. A charge will be placed on your payment account and will be processed on the date you place your order. You may cancel your order during the sale window by calling Customer Service. After the sale window ends, all orders are final.    

The made-to-order item’s expected ship date will be displayed on the item’s product page in our online shop, and may be up to a year from your order date. You will be notified before your order ships, and provided with instructions if you need to update your shipping address.
