Doll Size Props - Resource

https://www.etsy.com/shop/BlinkydollsBoutique


I love the details in this etsy shop. You will be sure to find something unique for your dollhouse and dioramas.

About this shop:
 As an adult fashion doll collector, I would like to imagine that if fashion dolls were living in today's world they would be urban recyclers, using natural fibers and reclaimed timbers in their environment. They would be adventurous and eclectic in designing living environments, settings would be harmonious, with natural light and subtle textures, similar to what we use in our own homes.

I believe today's fashion dolls would shop wisely at small business owner boutiques and thrift stores. Tiny boutiques owned by friendly people, are where you find the best prices, especially for fashion doll necessities.

Mini Dolls by Brand - 7.5" Moni Doll (1979)


Moni dolls were produced by a Swiss company called Uranium in 1979. Like Sasha dolls they have tan skin and closed mouth expression. They were a copy of the Sasha doll which caused Sasha Morgenthaler family to file a complaint which put a stop to production.


Both boy and girl dolls were made, blonde and brunette along with several extra outfits.




You can find these dolls and clothing on ebay form tie to time.

BEFOREVER New Mini Dolls - Thoughts

We have been waiting for the new AG minis and they're finally here!

 2003

All vinyl bodies. At least there is no question - these dolls can be submerged in water without damaging rooted hair, painted faces and vinyl bodies.

Compared to my Samantha and the acrylic eyed Samantha - this looks like an imposter.



I'm not a fan of these minis. I know with the vinyl body they appear slimmer, but OG minis look slimmer and have cloth bodies.




I can not tell you how much I dislike Caroline's mini. This face doesn't do her justice as beautiful as she is.



I love Kit's hair and I think the clothing is made very well on these minis. Do you know who difficult it is to make this size clothing? (Auntie Robin is a pro) I would lose my mind!




Rebecca has the most pretty face, but I'm curious if her hair can actually stay this pretty. Out of all the minis I would buy Rebecca.



April who has Addy said the 25th anniversary dress fits the new BF Addy with ease, the new BF meet dress is a little snug on the cloth body, but did fully close.  One big difference is the narrow shoulders of the new BF dolls.  Most outfits do cover them well though.



This doesn't even look like Kaya. It looks like a generic Native American Indian mini doll.



I guess I'm old school when it comes to AG minis. Will you be buying any new BF minis?
