Sneak Peak- April Mystery Boxes

Here is a sneak peak at April's Mystery Boxes. I plan to launch the Etsy listing on February 27th, 2015. There is a very limited quantity of boxes so make sure to order ASAP when the listing goes live. I am very excited for this months featured item and I hope you guys are too!

One Frozen Mystery Mini vinyl figure featured in every box, plus all of the other mystery goodies.

Because of the Easter holiday, there will most likely be some fun non-religious Easter themed items as well.

NEW Our Generation Minis

Available at Target for $9.99. These adorable mini dolls are starting to show up at Targets nationwide. These are very well made and comparable to the beloved AG mini dolls. I prefer the look of the Our Generation dolls. The glass-like eyes are so sweet and innocent looking. American Girl is currently painting the eyes on, which I have never been a huge fan of. 

I love having new options of dolls to choose from for my Mini Doll line. These modern and stylish dolls are adorable and well made. The only down side is they can be fairly difficult to find. I am hoping that they will be better stocked when it gets closer to the holidays.

If you guys want one of these beautiful dolls I suggest calling around to the Targets nearest to you. I am not sure about International viewers. 

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have fun collecting!

Isabelle Hair Extensions Poorly Done

Love the Doll; Hate the hair extensions- I have yet to hear of anyone who likes the hair extensions.  There is not just one reason either.  Here is a list of reasons that I see come up most frequently:

1. Doesn't stay in.
2. Different blond coloring than Isabelle's hair.
3. Only fits on Isabelle
4. Tacky for the age.
5. You can't see it.
6. When you move it so you can see it, it sticks out of the hair like a soar thumb.

I would think that AG would have thought about these hair extensions a bit more before putting them up for sale.  It is disappointing that Isabelle's most "unique" feature doesn't look or work well with her and it increases her price by $10.00.  From what I have heard from buyers so far, I would not buy this doll unless they change the hair piece.  

All you have to do is read some of the reviews posted on the American Girl site to see that I am not the only one that is noticing a problem with the extensions.
