Tips for Getting Disney Limited Edition Dolls

I've noticed recently that people are interested in knowing how I manage to get my limited edition dolls from Disney, so I figured I'd put together a post on what I do. Ever since the first Frozen limited edition dolls have been released in November, it seems more and more people are becoming interested in collecting them.

American Girl Cookbooks Reveiw

So I've been meaning to do this review for almost two months now and I've had the pictures for it sitting on my computer for just as long. I finally actually tried a recipe from one of these cookbooks last night, so waiting so long at least has let me include pictures of that in here.

Last Christmas I had asked my parents to get me the American Girl cookbooks for a gift when they were looking for gift ideas. I had Felicity's growing up because she was my favorite and that's it. When American Girl was still owned by Pleasant Company, during the 90's they put out a series of books for each of their historical characters and one of the series included cookbooks. Each book gives recipes for different meals of what might have been eaten during the girls' day. They also included historical facts about cooking and party planning tips. These books have been out of print for awhile and only included the first six historical characters; Felicity, Josefina, Kirsten, Addy, Samantha, and Molly. I believe they've released some newer cookbooks for other characters but are in a different format than the ones I'm talking about today.

Ignore the sandy rug,

Monster High Art Class: Abbey Bominable

A few weeks ago I went to see Frozen again in theaters and stopped at Target afterwards so my mom could pick up some food. So of course I had to look at the dolls while I was there. Luckily they had just restocked and I found Art Class Abbey, a doll that had been on my wishlist. I had a gift card from Christmas, and after enduring some awkward flirting from the cashier, I was able to bring Abbey home with me.

I also apologize for not being around lately. I haven't felt very inspired to write and I've been binge watching Sailor Moon in preparation for the 20th Anniversary reboot this summer. :p

Abbey was not amused by the flirting, and like me wanted to get out of that line quicker.

Isabelle at American Girl Boston

So yesterday I ventured out to Natick to use an American Girl gift card and some Christmas money that was burning a hole in my pocket. I figured it would be a good time to take some pictures of the new Girl of the Year, Isabelle Palmer, because it was a slow Monday after Christmas break at the AG store.

Monster High Frights Camera Action: Black Carpet Lagoona Blue

So I recently packed up my Monster High dolls to go in storage for when I get around to moving, but yesterday I ended up buying two more! I bought 13 Wishes Haunt the Casbah Abbey, who I'll review soon, and Fright Camera Action Black Carpet Lagoona. Now in my defense I had a gift card to Wal-Mart and have been searching for Abbey around here for ages, and Lagoona was on sale at Target for only $9.99! And she's from a new line. I can't pass up brand new and on sale. ;)

American Girl: Caroline Abbott Doll and Accessories

I recently got back into collecting American Girl dolls and their things last July. It was a little strange to see new historical dolls that replaced my beloved childhood characters like Felicity and Kirsten. I quickly got over that though and started to love the new characters. Caroline was one of the new girls that caught my eye right away. I love her time period and the nautical theme to her collection. I read all of her available books that are out right now, and I fell in love with her character even more.

For Christmas this year, I had asked my mother to get me a gift card from American Girl so I could go pick out Caroline at the store. Instead my mom decided to buy her for me so I'd be more surprised. A couple of weeks ago my mom and brother had stopped at the store on the way home from a doctor's appointment in Boston so she could pick her out for me. Much to my brother's dismay, she had about five Carolines spread out on the floor so she could find one with the best face and wig for me. I think she did a pretty good job myself and I love my new doll!

What I've Been Up To

I apologize that I haven't been writing much lately, but the thing is I haven't really bought any new dolls lately. I've been actually trying to pack up my old Monster High dolls to leave at my parents house for when I move out soon. I also made the tough decision of which Lagoona and Abbey doll I want to bring to Florida with me since I don't really want my room to be over crowded with dolls since I'll be living in someone else's house for a little while.

In other new though, the Disney Store has recently released a toddler doll for Kristoff from Frozen and also Tinker Bell, so expect to see reviews of them soon once I get my hands on them. I'd also like to get the singing Anna and Elsa dolls eventually too. I also will be getting a new American Girl doll soon, either on Christmas or soon after. So I will have things to review again soon!

I have been taking pictures of my American Girl dolls over the last month, so I'll be sharing some of those today.
