Meet the Mini Dolls!

Hello!

I hope you all had a good Mother’s Day, last Sunday! Remember to honor your mother (and father!) for all that they do for you!

 

Clara is going to take over now. 🙂

Hi Everyone! Guess what I get to show you today?

DSCN1960

The mini dolls!!! It’s about time you met them, I think. 🙂

DSCN1955

Gracie’s planning to add a link to this post on the “Meet the Dolls” page, and she added a little bit to our profiles, too, so be sure to check it out!

Now, let’s get in to actually meeting the minis!

DSCN2006

Let’s start with Julie’s, the oldest’s, doll and then proceed from the minis owned by the oldest to the youngest.

This is Cecile! She and Marie-Grace, who are pre-Beforever historicals, were our first minis!

DSCN2018

Cecile is eight years old, the oldest of the minis, and likes to cook. She’s fun, sometimes stubborn, and likes to goof off with her sisters, though she is also good at standing up when things are getting too out of hand.

Any words for the readers, Cecile?

Hello! *waves*

Ok… That’s all?

Um, thanks for reading!!

DSCN1962

Next up we have Molly, a first edition, glass-eyed mini, and one of Caroline’s dolls!

Um, Molly?

I’m adjusting my glasses… 

Ok… They look fine to me…

Ok… but if you had glasses you would understand how they get uncomf–

DSCN1963

Hey! I have glasses!

Well… you aren’t wearing them…

I’m NOT?

DSCN1964

OOF! Hey…!

Where in the world could they be??

DSCN1965

AHA! Here they are!!

Ok…

DSCN1967

Alright! Much better! Now, where were we?

You were introducing me and then you dropped me…

Oh, right. Sorry Molly!

DSCN1971

Molly is six years old. She is a bit shy and reserved, and likes reading. She can be a little mischievous sometimes, and she doesn’t like being the center of attention.

Any extra words, Molly?

I don’t think so… 

Ok. Thanks for joining us, Molly.

You’re welcome.*shy smile*

DSCN1974

This here is Samantha, also glass-eyed, and also Caroline’s!

DSCN1983

Mini Sam is six years old, and the youngest of the minis. She likes to joke around, play, and try to get Molly to go on mischievous adventures with her and Kit.

Any words, Sammy?

I saw cake in the fridge, may I have some? 

Um, sure, but do you have any words for our readers?

Oh! Um… I love cake! And playing outside with Kit!

DSCN2023

Speaking of Kit, Kit is up next! She is–

DSCN2021

Kit!!

What?

Why is your hair a wreck? And you don’t have your shoes on? You know you’re in a post!

Sorry, I was climbing trees outside.

Alright, well, go get yourself cleaned up, ok? Then come on back.

*Scampers off*

Just a minute please. Sorry for the delay.

DSCN2025

*Scampers back* Better? 

Much! So anyways, this is Kit! She is one of the Beforever minis, and is Grace’s doll.

DSCN2026

Kit is seven years old. She and Samantha get along really well, as they both like playing outside and being silly. Samantha looks up to Kit, and thinks she’s hilarious and fun. Kit’s mischief sometimes gets out of hand, but she tries to be a good example and big sister to Sam.

Do you have anything to say to the readers?

Out of hand? I don’t get out of hand! Oh… well, I guess, there was that one time… 

And some other times…

Ok, maybe I do get a little out of hand sometimes… 

DSCN1989

This here is Marie-Grace! She is one of my dolls!

DSCN1990

Marie-Grace is eight years old. She has the sweetest personality of the mini dolls. Marie-Grace is a pretty quiet girl, and very thoughtful. She likes being around her family or in her room reading. Cecile is her best friend.

Anything to say, Marie-Grace?

It was nice meeting you all!

DSCN1997

Before we go, just check out her HAIR! It’s so long and shiny and soft! XD I love it.

DSCN1985

Last but not least, we have Rebecca, another pre-Beforever mini! Um… Rebecca?

Be out in a minute! I’m fixing my hair!

Oh, um, ok… Just try to hurry! We have people waiting!

DSCN2033

Here I am! I need to look my best for the readers, don’t you think?

Ok. So here is Rebecca, she is my second doll, and the last of our minis.

DSCN2046

Rebecca is our fashionista; though, you may have already figured that out. She is seven years old. Rebecca likes to spend her time styling her and her sisters’ hair and begging us to let her try out a little makeup. She can be a little bossy sometimes, but can be kind, as well.

Anything to say, Rebecca?

So… can I wear makeup? 

*chuckles* No, Rebecca. You don’t need any at your age, anyways. I don’t wear it, either. Anything else?

Goodbye, readers!

Well, I guess that concludes our meet and greet! I hope you enjoyed meeting all the minis! And be sure to go check out the “Meet the Dolls” page to check out the update!!

Bye!


 

Before I go,

What did you think of the pictures in this post?

I took them in my closet where my dollhouse/bookshelf is, so it was kind of like an experiment, and lighting was a challenge. Some of them are better than others, because I figured out new methods as I went. I edited these, too 🙂 . Feedback is appreciated!

Also, I plan to post the winner of Caption It! #3 very soon! So go ahead and vote, here, if you haven’t yet!

 

Bye!

American Girl at Costco

I saw Samantha at Costco as well! Super neat! My Caroline actually came from Costco, last year!

(Yes, I know, I’m still on break for another week, but I thought I’d reblog this for you all 😉 )

I was at Costco today with my mom, and I saw a huge American Girl display in the toy section! Of course, I had to take pictures. Sorry for the bad quality — they were taken on my mom’s …

My Package Arrived…!!!

GUYS!!!! I’M EXCITED! GUESS WHAT ARRIVED TODAY! 😀 😉

*squeals*

Emhem. Today I received something in the mail that I am quite excited to show you!

Can you guess…?

CAM00955

 

CAM00963

 

CAM00961

Do you know what it is?

Tired of dashes yet? 🙂

If you guessed a mini glass-eyed Samantha doll, then you were correct!

CAM00969

Meet Samantha! I bought her off of Ebay for about 13 dollars, including shipping. She was a GREAT Bargain, I’d say! She is in great condition, too!

CAM00992

I had wanted to buy a mini doll for Caroline, since all my other dolls have one. So I got Samantha!

CAM01021[1]

She came with her mini book and a doll stand. The stand is from Knickerbocker Plastic Co. or Standard Doll Co. or something. It says both names on it.

CAM00977

I am really happy to have her in my mini doll collection! And I love that she is the old (I think first) edition of mini dolls, that have the glass eyes. She is SO cute!

CAM00975

Her HAIR! I love it 🙂 . It isn’t really wavy like you would think of Samantha’s hair being today, but it does flip and kind of wave-ish. But maybe that’s just how they used to make the mini? It is really long (as you can see in the picture) and quite thick. (I’m holding it down so you can see the length because it poofs out a little bit [and flips like I mentioned earlier])

CAM00981

CAM00976

CAM00980

Also, She came with her dress, black tights, little white panties, two little black plastic shoes, and her hair bow. Her dress and shoes feel kind of flimsy, and the velcro is also tough to take off. Her panties are not tight around the waist. They fit okay over the tights, though. I think the elastic on them might have worn from age-after all, she is an old mini!

CAM00965

Her arms can move up and down and around of course, but they can’t really go out, if you know what I mean.

CAM00968

CAM00985

Caroline is very excited to have her (And Samantha is excited to be Caroline’s).

CAM00986

CAM00990

 

*sigh* Isn’t she adorable 🙂 . I’m very happy with my purchase of this mini doll, and am excited with her great condition!

I hope you enjoyed reading about my new doll addition! Have you ever made an exciting Ebay (or other) American Girl purchase?
