Silkstone Francie- Dealers Exclusive
Looks like the much anticipated Silkstone Francie doll due out August 2011 has been deemed a ‘Dealers Exclusive’ doll and will only be available to purchase via Mattel Dealers. To tell you the truth, I’m not sure how exactly that will limit the quantity of the doll. I’ve done a google search and quite a few shops now have it available to pre-order. The prices vary, but most have it set at $80.00. One website went so far as say this is the first in a series of Francie’s being released in the Silkstone line…
The best price I’ve seen thus far is from Cheryl’s Dolls and Collectable’s where it is currently on sale for twenty bucks less than most online stores. I’ve never shopped with them before, but the price is (at the moment) much better than most dealers! UPDATE: Cheryl’s Dolls have been beat in the price game. Check out DreamHouseDolls. They have the doll at (currently) $60. (I’ve never ordered from them, but the price is nice!)
Are you excited about this doll? Do you think this is the first of many Francie’s we’ll see in the future? And what other dolls would you like to see in the Silkstone line? Leave a comment!
