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.



  1. Rhonda, thank you so much for this blog. I follow both your blogs daily, but I especially love the minis because they give children a chance to explore the historical AG worlds without taking up too much space or money. This blog has given me wonderful resources and inspiration, and I'm sure I'll look back to reference things from time to time. Thanks for leaving the archives available. I'll continue to follow LADL, and I wish you good luck in all you do.

    1. Thank you Suzanne. Next year you can catch up on mini Grace and the AG minis adventures in quarterly posts. Any requests are welcome.

  2. *From Julie's doll mom:*

    That's too bad. I've only just started w/ the AG minis, and have just gotten into Snickerdoodle Street a few months ago. But as much fun as dolls are, they can also be a lot of work, so farewell little Snickerdoodles! We'll miss you!

  3. Rhonda, a little sad to see this blog go as my interest is more in the minis since I collect Barbie and other 1:6 scale action figures and fashion dolls. The minis are a perfect size to be kids for my Barbies. I also follow LADL, so will continue to watch for any news you have and read about your doll's adventures!

    1. Thank you Phyllis. No worries, with quarterly updates I will have fun news, crafts and the like for both AG minis and Barbies (because I love both). We will hit popular holidays with fun features too.
