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.
