Of course, Naomi and I gave each other toy-related presents. She will be showing you hers in a future post. Here is mine
First of all, we have Ginny Weasley from the Harry Potter series. I said that I would like to get Ginny when Naomi bought me Hermione, while she was in Adelaide so I was very happy to find her under the tree.
I was also keen to add to my small collection of vintage Barbie outfits. As I like to put them on my dolls I don’t really mind whether I get vintage or reproduction. With vintage, you often have to collect all the pieces of an outfit over time so it’s quite satisfying to complete an outfit but with repro, you have the whole thing right away and can enjoy playing with it. You also don’t have to worry quite as much about handling fragile old material so either is good.
This set is a reproduction of “Winter Holiday” #975 made from 1959-63. I think that it wouldn’t look out of place today. I am looking forward to trying this on some of the vintage girls if Jan does not get her hands on it first.
Finally, a book of Doctor Who paper dolls featuring the first 12 Doctors and several of the Companions with costumes they wore in various episodes.
I intend to show all of these things in a bit more detail in future posts. I hope that if you were celebrating Christmas Santa (or your family) was kind to you. We’d love to see what was under your tree too.
