A Skipper Christmas

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

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!

Did you receive any new items for your collection this holiday season?  Why not share the news with a comment or two!

    Wow, you got some great Skippers there. I love your Sun Jewel in particular, she has beautiful eyes. And the big eyed AA Skippers are gorgeous, unfortunately you never really see them in the UK 😦

    I got some Monster Highs for Christmas, and some Disney Designer Villains. Whoever got your gifts must know your collection very well!

      Most of these were purchased by my mom who was outfitted with a list of dolls I didn’t have in my collection yet well before Christmas. 😉 Congrats on your Disney Designer dolls! Those were really hard to get here and some of them are really kind of neat!

      I’m so jealous of your Matilda! What a great gift! If she’s anything like Amelia, then you have a fine doll!!!
