I just wanted to give you a quick update on a few projects that are going on in the doll world! First off, I have launched (kind of) another website, this one themed around Disney Toys, for About.com. If you have a moment, check it out. I’m still writing here, of course, so don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere.
Second, A Girl for All Time announced a new line recently, Your Modern Girl. This line “will be wonderfully unique and reflect the world that today’s girls live in – a world more ethnically, socially, and economically diverse than at any other time this century with girls who are strong, confident, and comfortable in their own skin.” They’re going to raise funds for this new line via a Kickstarter. A Girl for All Time is reaching out to fans ages 8-14 to voice their opinion on the Your Modern Girl range via video submission. I don’t know when the deadline for this is, but it was announced mid-October, so get your submissions in as soon as possible. Details on how fans ages 8-14 can share their opinion and have a chance to be featured on the kickstarter’s page can be found here. (On the same note, check out the rest of Frances blog posts. They’re always fun to read!)
Third, you may have heard that Makies are going through a bit of a transformation at the moment. The bodies are no longer being 3D printed like they were before. The heads, though, are still being 3D printed. The biggest bit of news at the moment is that the boy dolls are being re-worked and will not be available to order from the website starting November 9th. That is a few days from now, so get your orders in now if you have a boy in your Makies account you can’t live without.
Fourth, my PO box is going way. It was a failed experiment, so please delete the PO box from your address books. (Do people even keep address books anymore? Am I showing my age?)
That’s about it, I think, for housekeeping at the moment. Stay tuned for the usual reviews and a special Q and A with Christina from Makielabs. Cheers!
Exciting times are hitting Confessions of a Doll Collectors Daughter!
First off, we now have a Facebook page! Feel free to ‘like’ this blog. For those who don’t like to subscribe to blogs via e-mail, this is the perfect way to stay up to date with updates! Consider the first month of ‘Confessions’ on Facebook like a beta test! I’m still learning what it takes to have a ‘fan page’ on the social networking site.
Secondly, I have a few events planned for a ‘belated 2 year anniversary’ celebration! No details now, but I’ll give you a hint… I may or may not have gone shopping for a giveaway or two…
So, stay tuned and ‘like’ us on Facebook!
In honor of those who have fought bravely protecting our country, I thought I’d post my most patriotic doll photo.
Have a safe and happy Memorial Day!
