The World Doll Day Challenge

As I mentioned yesterday June 13th is World Doll Day and to celebrate this I’m taking part in a World Doll Day Challenge. Thank you to Barbielea of Barbiebeauties for tagging me.

To participate I have to carry out three tasks. Here we go.

1). Post three of my favourite dolls from this year
I have been very lucky this year because my sister gave me two vintage dolls that had been on my wish list for some time; a swirl ponytail Barbie and a vintage Ken. Technically I suppose Barbie was from last year as I got her for Christmas but close enough. Ken was a birthday present.
My other favourite doll from this year is my Divergent Tris who I bought a couple of months ago. I love her face and her short hair which I think makes her more interesting than the first edition doll. I’m not really a fan of tattoos usually but I don’t mind hers because it is small and presumably has some meaning to the character. I’m not a follower of the films so I don’t know.

2. Let you know about three dolls on my wish list
I still have a few dolls on my vintage fashion doll wish list. I would love to get a Francie and an American Girl Barbie. Nice vintage ones don’t come cheap so I may have to settle for reproductions but I will probably wait until just the right vintage ones come along at a price I can afford.

I have also long wanted a 16 inch fashion doll. I haven’t a particular favourite at present but this was the first one I saw that I really liked. Tyler Wentworth.

I have chosen five bloggers I follow. If someone else has tagged you or you don’t want to play that’s fine. It’s just a game after all.

  1. Thanks for sharing Taswegian. An original Francie has been on my wish list for a long time too, and I think American Girl is one of my favourite vintage Barbies.

    I haven’t watched the films either, but recently I read that Tris’ bird tattoo symbolises her lost family.
