More new releases: BJDs and Fairy Tales

by Alison Rasmussen


Continuing on from Saturday's open house, we were able to see some gorgeous candids of the new Tonner ball-jointed dolls. Two are already on sale. Above, Tyler is available through Angelic Dreamz (this place often has great specials) and Cherished Friends (I've shopped from them before, and their service is fantastic). According to the blog, Tyler is showing off the new RTW Floral Truffle Boutique seperates. I just love her hands!
Next on the BJD list is Ashleigh, who is exclusive to Two Daydreamers. (I'm shopped with them before and had a good experience with them as well.) Ashleigh is also modeling seperates from the Floral Truffle Boutique collection. I love the pockets on this coatdress.
Available to pre-order now (exclusively through Bearzabout), this BJD Sydney Chase prototype seems to have maintained her almost haughty pout. I can't wait to see more images of this doll.
My two girls were most excited by this doll--a limited edition FAO Schwarz exclusive Rapunzel. She will be featured in the Fall/Holiday catalog this year, and she features the Breathless sculpt. I'm sure she'll make a great addition to our fairy tale characters this Christmas! (I'm excited to see that she isn't blonde, actually.)
From Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale The Snow Queen, Tonner Doll's Tess sculpt takes on a wintery ethereal look as the evil Snow Queen of this fairy tale. It was one of my favorite tales as a child--because it is the girl who rescues the boy, and a triumph of love over greed. Plus this doll would be great friends with the White Witch of Narnia.
