Dolly Finds!


Unfortunately my Barbie Shrinky Dinks are still sitting here next to me. They are all colored, ready to be baked however, every night last week and this week the oven has been used for something so I have not been able to run them in. (LOTS of zucchini bread is the culprit....) So before I bring you the post about them, I have some fabulous dolly finds where you get to participate and help me ID them! 

I honestly am NO good at ID, have you realized that? :)

While I was at the thrift store picking up some maternity clothes (because I'm cheap frugal thrifty) I found this little (big!) gem sitting naked in the toy bin. 

Um, yes please! Steffie head mold anyone?

I rummaged around in the bin and luckily I found a dress to put on her. Kind of looks like it matches her jewelry but not sure if it's the right dress as it doesn't stay up that well.

I'm thinking that this is a collector doll. She has the twist in her torso which pushes out one hip and the one bent arm which matches up perfectly with her head and/or hip. 

Toenail polish is all intact.

Fingernail polish could use a little touching up. But overall not in bad shape. 

Maybe a close up of her hair would give a little more of a better ID. It's mostly still there but would need some curl redo. And the reason why I have her arm the way I do is because this one curl kept falling down over her face. 

The dress does state "Barbie Collector" so friends, who is she? 

I also picked up this adorable little Kelly. 

Poor thing. I tried to look for her bottoms but no avail. I have mega tons of naked Kelly dolls, I need to score some clothes for them on Ebay. ;)

And this little McDonalds toy. A little ratted, but nothing a shampoo and boil dip can't fix up!

And then my mom and dad picked me up some other dolls! I won't post them all. A lot of them were generic playline and Fashionista most with jointed legs, arms or both. But here are some dollys and fashions that I need some help with!

I love this one, it reminds me of a superstar or hollywood hair fashion. Gotta love the orange boots! (kids) :)

The jacket is a multi-color sparkle velvet flocked type and the "dress" is actually a halter bodysuit/swimsuit with a skirt that is a separate piece. None say Genuine Barbie. 

And a classic ponytail with Totally Hair Barbie's scrunchie. 

This newer body type cutie has some adorable pajamas. No tags.

But maybe we can ID her from her earrings! Anyone know?

Next we have a beautiful old body ballerina. 

And parts of her hair are "holiday Barbie" hard. Most of the curls are intact except the little piece in the back. I'd like to restore her hair if anyone knows who she is.

Next we have this fabulous Teresa bride doll with a long sleeve lace wedding dress. This dress does have a Genuine Barbie tag. 

Jointed arm Barbie with also some cute jammies! Both the shorts and tank are sewed together into one bodysuit and it has trouble velcroing all the way in the back. Maybe it's for a Skipper? 

But this Barbie is unique. She has the cutest freckles! 

Lastly we have this beautiful doll wearing a purple and pink princess style dress. No tags but it fits her good so I'm guessing this is the dress that she came with. 

She is not a Mattel doll but she has just a genuine pretty face and her hair is in good condition. I'm thinking she may have to go on the shelf!

Well friends, are you able to help me ID? Or maybe you have these dolls in your collection? Let me know in the comments!

Next up, Shrinky Dinks, Barbie feature from my personal collection, and the Ever After High comic! (I didn't win by the way but oh well, it was fun to do!)

Until next time!

I think the barbie with freckles is "tickle me Elmo" barbie. Great finds! I can never find barbies at my local thrift stores.

Teresa Brown said...

Wow, Tickle Me Elmo Barbie, did not even know it existed! But you know, you are right! Freckles are identical and it did look like her hair was once in pigtails. Thanks so much!

You know, it took me a while to find Barbies at the thrift stores here. Honestly, there is only one that has a consistent supply of dolls (the one I go to!) And it usually goes in spurts. I found a lot at the end of spring which I attribute to spring cleaning :) But maybe another thrift store would have some? Keep checking, i'm sure some will pop up for you!

Great Scores! Especially the first one. She is one of the Birthstone Beauties, most likely Miss Pearl.

The doll with the pink earrings should be 2007 Surf's Up Barbie and her Nighty is from a 2008 Candy Glam closet # M9384 which contained several PJs and a robe.

I think Tickle Me Elmo Barbie's fashion is from a newer Skipper, may be the one with the bathroom.

The last doll is a Defa Lucy doll made in China. She's a cheap doll, with very tiny body, but I like her face too.

Your beautiful Steffie is a Birthstone Beauties doll. The white dress makes me think she's Miss Diamond or Miss Pearl. I have a bunch of dolls from the series. I love them!

The doll in the wedding dress is Pretty In Plaid. I have one, too. I used to have the redhead -- she was stunning.

Teresa Brown said...

Thanks Everyone for your fabulous help!

Andrea: I just looked up the Birthstone Beauties and she probably is Miss Pearl. Hard to tell because all the necklaces are the same. Dress doesn't stay up that well, I may have to devise a plan. And I might have a little bolero jacket to go with it.

And I have a Skipper that needs an outfit. :) Yay!

Bambuc - thanks for the help on the non-Mattel doll! She is definitely growing on me, I love getting these unique ones!

Saturday Sequins - I must have missed these dolls when they came out. I love birthstone dolls, I have a lot that I've gotten through the years but never these ones. But they sure are pretty with the Steffie mold.

Thanks for the help with the Teresa doll. I have the Barbie, wonder if I can pick up her outfit so she has a buddy :)
