New items at FAO Schwarz

by Alison Rasmussen


In my regular browsing today, I discovered a few new items at FAO. (Nope, Rapunzel isn't listed yet!)
  • Scarlett O'Hara. She's dressed in the famous gown she crafted out of her green drapes. She's listed at $350, LE 100, which stunned me at first glance. But she's apparently a larger doll, standing at 22". She's currently listed on backorder status, expected to ship by 11/11/08.
  • Dorothy Gale. A beloved character from the Wizard of Oz, she stands 15" tall (which is taller than the other 12" Dorothy from the standard Tonner collection) with 15 points of articulated movement. This doll is based on actress Judy Garland. She's listed at $140, LE 500, also scheduled to ship on 11/11/08.
  • Ellowyne Wilde Purple Rain. LE 350, this 16" doll is listed at $150 and is in stock. This doll has actually gotten rave reviews (5 out of 5 from 19 purchasers, which is fairly unusual), too.
Note: You can save 6% cash back when you shop at FAO Schwarz when you shop through Ebates.com. You just need to sign up with an account the Ebates site first, and then do a quick search for FAO. It will pop right up, along with any special coupons or promotions they are running. Then, with 24-48 hours of placing your order, Ebates will credit you 6% of your order subtotal back (not including shipping or sales tax). It's a great way to save a little bit here and there on all your internet shopping!
