DC Superhero Girls: Starfire

DC Superhero Girls - Starfire was released from her package today.


Introduced in 1980, her real name is Koriand'r and she is from the planet, Tamaran. Once a princess, she was enslaved to another race for a time. Eventually she escaped and came to Earth, where she joined the Teen Titans.





Taking advantage of her exotic looks, Kory found work as a fashion model when she wasn't fighting villains.







This Starfire looks forward to fighting evil with the other DC Superhero Girls.

Prettie Girls

I decided to take a mental health day today and to unbox my Prettie Girls dolls.


Up first is Lena, a Prettie Girls Tween Scene doll by One World Doll Project, a joint project between Robert Tonner and Stacey McBride-Irby.


Lena is prettie because she is smart, according to her box. On the Prettie Girls Website her description is expanded - she loves math and enjoys reading and laughing aloud.


She is about 15" tall and plastic/vinyl.


She shares the body that Tonner's Maudlynn Macabre and LittleMissMatched use, with a different head sculpt. This means that she poses nicely and is capable of standing on her own. Hooray!


She came with a bag and an extra shirt.


Maudlynn and Lena hit it off as soon as they met.



They are already telling each other their secrets. I'm glad, Maudlynn has been a little sad since learning that her line wasn't being continued. Now she finally has a friend.


The other Prettie Girls doll I am sharing today is Kimani from the 12" fashion doll line.


I love how the colors in her outfit coordinate with Lena's. Kimani is a gorgeous doll, but she is a very awkward sitter.


It is a shame that the One World Doll Project ended so quickly, according to their outdated Website, they had two other doll lines in the works, including a baby doll line. Maybe someday they will continue the company.


For me, I am happy to have these two in my collection.

Olympic Fever (OK, just Doll Fever)

In honor of the 2018 Winter Olympics taking place in South Korea this month, I thought I would share some of the dolls I purchased during my two trips to South Korea.





You can see my previous Korea posts here, here, here, and here.

I would gladly visit again (and buy more dolls).

Pepper and Pete

I recently won Ideal's Pepper and Pos'n Pete in a doll club raffle. I wasn't sure of them, but they seem to fit in just fine. 

Here they are in the Liv Doll room. I think they may stay for a while.


Pepper, 1963.


Pos'n Pete, 1964.


Now, I guess I may need to add their big sister, Tammy, to the collection.

E,F,G,H

E is for Eegee/Goldberger's Honey Lamb



F is for Fujiya's Poko Chan


G is for George Harrison by Applause



H is for Horsman's Denton Baby



Baby Denton

This is a 1989 Baby Denton by Horsman.


She is 17" tall and vinyl. She has sleep eyes, drinks and wets, and is washable.


She is adorably dressed in a pink Dr. Denton sleeper.


It even has the drop panel.


She is one of the dolls I purchased, hoping that she would be my beloved childhood doll. She isn't quite right, but really, really close.

And D is for Ddung, from Korea.


I'm having a lot of fun with this thread.
