This Week Around the Doll World 10/20

Lots going on in the doll world this week!

A lot of people are asking about less expensive alternatives to the American Girl Doll, dolls that can still fit our Emily Rose Doll Clothes. Here is a list of some dolls that we found that can fit our clothes:

Our Generation at Target
Madame Alexander at Toys R Us and Costco (but they are not online right now)
B-Girlz at Sam's Club

Newly Discovered Doll Artist - Wendy Frank - My friend Nay let me know about a doll artist from Australia. She makes the most unique dolls! Here is a picture of the one that Nay got:

Isn't she sweet? You can read more about her and how she was made here!

Did you know that Disney has a new princess on the block??? Tiana from Disney's The Princess and the Frog is now on toy store shelves and she is a beauty! There are several versions but here are my favorites:

Just One Kiss

Picture rights belong to Disney

The "regular Princess Tiana

Picture rights belong to Disney.

And the Toddler Princess Tiana

Picture rights belongs to Disney.

She is just too sweet for words!

My daughter and I are excited to see the movie when it comes out later this year!

Jailbreak Toys just released a new doll of the first lady Michelle Obama. I don't like it at all, it's too cartoonish! Anyway if you would like to read one of the articles about the doll, here is a link to the New York Times. I like the one at Danbury Mint much better!
