Another Christmas has come and gone. As we approach 2014, I wanted to give you a peek at what dolly related things were on my birthday table and under the tree! Come 2014, I will spotlight these each in a little more detail, but for now, here’s a sneak peek!!!
The majority of the Christmas shopping is done by myself and my mother, which means that we both receive a good number of dolls or doll related items! My birthday happens to be a few days before Christmas. This year was a bit of a ‘big’ birthday for me– 30! I’m in good company, though, with the Cabbage Patch Kids also turning the big 3-0!
I know these gifts don’t really resemble what others get for ‘big’ birthdays, but honestly? I love that! I can’t wait to display the puzzles and I love the uncut paper doll books! Surprising was the MiWorld set I received, as I didn’t expect that at all! And of course, there’s the My Pet Monster puzzle. For those who don’t know, I wanted a My Pet Monster so bad when they first came out. Unfortunately, I never received one. To this day, I think it would be neat to own my own My Pet Monster. Having a puzzle with the little guy is one step closer!
My favorite part of Christmas is the giving. I was lucky enough to snag two really affordable Taeyang’s for my mom (Wizard of Oz Tin Man and Scarecrow) to complete her Wizard of Oz set. I also gifted her a Disney Princess Prince doll, Flynn Rider, a plush Cabbage Patch Kid and a Cutie Pop (amongst a few non dolly related items). That being said, it’s always fun opening presents. Here’s a few that I received!
As always, my family picked up a nice variety of dolls for under the Christmas tree! I received the Lalaloopsy I’ve been bugging my mother about, Haley Galaxy, as well as the Kawaii Crush set I’ve been looking at, the PB and J set!
Also under the tree was a Terri Lee from their release in 2012 and a Madame Alexander Smurfette, Picture Day Lagoona, the Barbie: A Pony Tale Sisters set with no bangs Skipper, and my personal favorite, a Kurhn Christmas doll!!! Last, but not least, I opened up two MiWorld rooms, DQ and Opi.
My C3P0 collection grew a lot this Christmas with two C3P0 themed dog toys, some vintage soap, a tiny Micro Machine playset and a snazzy uncut key!
I’ll be showcasing most of these items in their own post come January, so keep your eyes open! For those who would like to see the video reveal (featuring my mom and her gifts, too!), check out the video below!

Have a safe and happy New Year. See you in 2014!
