Notice Anything?


Sorry for the delay. Things have been hectic as of late. It's been crazy actually! Also been having fun playing with my little babes. He's 6 months already. Can you believe it? 

So, here is a picture of my doll shelf. Notice anything? (Besides the pile of laundry on the table :)

Not seeing it? Let me zoom in a little closer.

Now do you see it? 

Yep, there HE is!

Among my fabulous Wonderlandians is the newest member of my EAH clan and he is THE ultimate Wonderlandian.

Alistair Wonderland! Son of Alice in Wonderland!

The box says "Son of Alice." I guess "Alice in Wonderland" is kind of redundant. But I walked into my local Target to grab some baby essentials and as always, I cruse through the doll aisle. I saw a Faybelle Thorn doll for $15. Then I looked behind her and I saw Alistair and Bunny Blanc. Choices choices....but there needs to be more men so in the group so I chose him!

Hubby gave me the raised eyebrow look when I walked back to the car with him. I told him it was cheaper than I get them on Amazon, I had a 10% off coupon plus a gift card to use. He said they have me hooked. I admit, they do!

Alistair is your typical male EAH doll meaning they all have "Holiday Barbie Hard" hair. Not sure what is up with that so I thought about washing it. But the style holds true to his webisode counterpart so that's good. I like his look!

He wears an overshirt that has swirls on it. The undershirt and overshirt are sewn together with a velcro up the back. 

My husband commented on his little canteen. It's cute and a different twist on the bag or packs that came with the other two male dolls. Alistair is the ultimate explorer so he has a little compass on his canteen to help him get around!

As always, Mattel did a number with these shoes. They are so perfect I just can't even describe. Buckles, buttons up the side and wing tips fit him and look perfect with this outift. 

So much detail!

I like his hair. I really do. But what made me laugh is that his pants are capri length. But it does make it easier for us to put his boots on!

So as I mentioned I'm torn about whether or not to wash his hair since the style does match webisode Alistair. But there is one gal who I wanted to restyle.

Poppy O'Hair.

She also had "Holiday Barbie Hard" hair. Not sure why but this is what it looked like.

Not really liking this "fake" look. So I gave her a fabulous shampoo. 

How do you feel now Poppy?

I am impressed! It is so much shiner without all that goop in it. I also brushed it out and trimmed up some stray ends. I might fix up the front of the purple part, it still looks a little wonky to me. But it's fine for now. 

So pretty!

Poppy with her sister Holly. I think I might give Holly a boil dip to tame those stray ends but that's for another day. 

Well, that's it for today. Do you want to add Alistair to your collection? Let me know in the comments! 

Until next time!

Before I got to the pics, where Alistair was shown behind, I wondered are those boots removable. :)
One of my dolls has got huge hair problem. I bought her from second hand store and she had something red and very sticky in her hair. At first I thought it won't be a problem to remove it. After few times of washing it is still there and it turned out to be red lipstick. Have you got any ideas, how to remove lipstick from Barbie's hair?

Your baby is so big! Are you finally getting any sleep now?

Hey, it looks like you weren't tagged for the Liebster Award! Why don't you give it a try?

Hello All4 Barbie! Thanks for visiting the blog! I'm glad you like it. I'll be sure to check yours out as well. I love finding new blogs and fellow dolly lovers!

Hi Riina! Gosh, I'm not sure about the red lipstick. Yikes. I saw your post a while ago and it's been in the back of my mind but nothing seems to come to mind for how to remove it. I would think the only other way would be to color barbie's hair or maybe a mild bleach solution to bleach it (I have not tried this however.) Other than that, if you like the body you could do a head swap with another doll or the more time/labor intensive method: a re-root. Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

Hi BlackKitty! I am actually getting sleep. Babes has been sleeping through the night from about 8 weeks. He wakes up once a night after about 8 hours, I feed him then put him back down for another 2. It's really nice, we are so lucky!

I did the Liebster Award a while ago, I guess I could always do it again and update my answers! Things change after a year!

Hello! First of all, congratulations with your adorable baby!

I like your new doll, especially his accessories, love the boots and bag!

I would also like to invite you to my doll blog, I collect all kinds of dolls and sew clothes for some of them.

Many greetings from Belgium!

How time flies, Jacob has grown so much. I love how alert and curious he looks into the camera.

Alistair is beautiful. I wonder if he will ever make it to toy shelves in my area. EAH are not very present here. I finally managed to get some of the first dolls, when a store in the next town got them for a promotional sale. Still looking for Dexter in vain.

Hi Linda! Thanks for stopping by! I will definitely check out your blog. I'm new to sewing doll clothes so I'm sure I can pick up some pointers.

Hi Andrea! That is strange that some of these are not hitting the shelves, especially Dexter since he's been out for quite some time. For my area it's kind of hit and miss what I'll find. I've been seeing the School Spirit 2 pack but not much else. I've reverted to buying them online. I hate waiting but the prices are better.

I've been telling Jacob to stop growing, he's not listening. HA!
