Those of you that follow me on other social media may know that I am waiting on a new doll after selling off some others in my collection recently. The doll in question is a Dollstown Ganga on the 7 years body (the new version) in Pure Oriental Skin. When I ordered she was in stock, she’s been shipped and is now awaiting sorting after arriving at Heathrow Airport in London on Saturday evening! I am so excited to meet her but I suspect she will be stuck in customs for a while before being released to me; and then when she arrives I will have to send her away for a faceup as unfortunately Dollstown do not offer faceups at the moment.
I have been preparing for her arrival by ordering her some clothes that will fit which has been a difficult task as I have had problems finding things in the style I like for her size; but I have a couple of things on the way and something else on order that should work out OK. I am waiting for a couple of wigs to arrive too so hopefully one of those will be suitable.
Also, I have been busy finding little props and things that will work for her and thought I might share some of them with you. I already have some things here that will work but I’ve also enjoyed keeping an eye out for new things too. The first thing I found was this Snow White puzzle. It was in Tesco (a supermarket here in the UK) and was only £1 so I snapped it up straight away as the box and pieces should be the perfect size for her. They had all the other Disney princesses too so I’m sure I’ll end up getting a couple more at some point.
The next items were all found at local car boot sales, the first being this picnic basket that I got for 50p. It may be a little large but as she is a child, it won’t matter. Now I need to sort some things for her to take on a picnic!
And lastly, I was thrilled to get these old style Winnie the Pooh toys for just 20p each! They will probably work out as quite big plushies for her but I think they should be just fine 🙂 With any luck, she will be home this week or next week and I’ll do a quick box opening shoot before sending her off to get her faceup done so keep an eye out for that 😉
