Saying Good-Bye + NEW BLOG HEADER!

Saying good-bye is never easy. I thought long and hard about the fate of Snickerdoodle Street. It's been fun and challenging. I have found that there were MORE mini dolls in the doll world than I ever thought or heard about. I also discovered that not everyone enjoys the play value of mini sized dolls.

Barbie is a cultural icon and VIP to many doll collectors and to this blog. Even though her journey has gone a little off path from time to time, Barbie will always be VIP.

What's challenging about smaller scale dolls are their "worlds". Finding items or making items that in the full size 15" - 22" doll world we find so easy to obtain. You would think such small worlds would be easier to contain and manage, but in my experience it just isn't the case. There are countless small sized pieces (donuts, forks, socks, eye glasses, books) that can be easily lost or fall perilously in a trash bin unknown. 

At it's busiest Snickerdoodle Street had five main structures with eleven smaller structures sustaining Liberty Towne. Space was becoming a serious issue.

Rest assured the AG minis - Molly, Kit, Samantha, Nellie, Kirsten, Felicity, Saige, Nicki and Isabelle will reside in their homes. Nurse Katherine will live with 18" Molly in her bedroom, while the OG minis will live displayed on their shelf.

Mini Grace will be debuting Jan. 1st, and I will leave TWO posts open - Jan. 1 and 2 - for her review. Then Snickerdoodle Street will be taking a break. Any NEW and immediate mini doll news will be updated on LADL, however I have decided to make QUARTERLY posts and updates on what my AG minis and Barbies are doing. You can check back or sign up for email updates to stay connected.

My gift to Snickerdoodle Street loyal readers is a new blog header!

Meanwhile, as promised Snickerdoodle Street will leave a street light on for those of you who happen to stroll by and want to pay Liberty Towne a visit.

*Review* OG Mini Sienna & BF Rebecca - Comparison

Mini Rebecca and mini Sienna side by side show us the differences between the AG and OG minis.

*Review* AG GOTY 2014 Isabelle & BF Julie - Comparison

How cute are these two girls??

Here is a quick comparison between BF Julie and GOTY 2014  Isabelle.

Look at the differences in size of the paper back books!

Because of the knit fabric Izzy can wear Julie's clothes pretty easy, while Isabelle's t-shirt is very loose on Julie. 
Both look like sisters or BFFs.

*Opening* BEFOREVER Mini Doll Rebecca

Rebecca looks most like my full size 18" Rebecca!

Her clothes are all one piece, the skirt is sewn onto the jacket.

Her hair is silky smooth and as long as I don't "touch" it I'm sure it will maintain it's curl and luster.

Rebecca is a very pretty doll.

*NEWS* Mini GOTY 2015 Grace on Amazon

Amazon now has an image of the mini GOTY 2015 Grace doll where there was a blank place holder before. ORDER yours today Link provided!

*Opening* BEFOREVER Mini Doll Julie

To me she has a softer, prettier face than the classic AG version.

I dislike the peace sign on the t-shirt and don't understand the purple Dr. Scholls. The paperback book is smaller, thinner and without illustrations BOO!

Her hair is REALLY long! It's equal to the 18" version of Julie, soft and manageable.

I put her in a dress that fits Little Orphan Annie, who is a thinner doll, and it fit just fine.

Julie is a cute doll!

"Hey guys, Merry Christmas!"

"Hi ya Ken! Come help me put the lights on Skipper's tree will ya?"

*Vintage Barbie Holiday* Part One

Last minute shopping, Francie bought the last 3 foot Christmas tree at the tree lot!

"Do you think the tree will stay put?"

"Hey no problem, the tree is okay."

"Now let's get all of the presents inside."

Ken can't believe his eyes! The car is covered in Christmas gifts!

He begins loading all of the presents into the back seat and trunk. 

"Gee whiz Barbie, you sure did buy a lot of gifts!"

"Don't be silly Ken! I just bought a gift for everyone!"

("Oh my back.....")
