A Skipper Christmas

My Skipper collection is loving 2013!  Why?  Because this Christmas brought many new Skippers into my collection!

Skippers, Birthday/Christmas 2012

You’ll see Sun Jewel Skipper, Bathtime Fun, Splash and Color, Wet n Wild, Pet Pals, Beach Blast, and Cool Tops.  Opening the MIB dolls reminded me yet again that dolls were a lot easier to open back in the day.  No annoying plugs in their head or plastic tabs everywhere!

I received two MIB Sun Jewel Skippers and when I took a moment to compare the boxes, I noticed something odd.  It’s like day and night in terms of differences.  Poses are different, jewel placement is different, even the time of day in the shots is different!

Take a close look at the boxes and you'll see many differences!

Of all the new arrivals, I think AA Cool Tops Skipper is my favorite.  I’ve always loved her outfit and this AA version has some great facepaint!

Ta-daa!

Ta-daa!
