On the case

I call this gal my Beckett Barbie because she reminds me of Stana Katic, the actress who plays Kate Beckett on "Castle." She is Jeans Basics Model 14. I kept her in her issue jeans (which are my favorite in the line) and black halter top. Everything else is borrowed from Barbie On Location Monte Carlo.

Abbey Bominable: Review

After a looooong wait, my Monster High Abbey Bominable Doll is finally here! I am in love.

The Bottom Line:

The Good: cute and creative. nice details.

The Bad: some small parts.

The Verdict: Currently the Monster High Abbey Bominable Doll is still very hard to find, so if you are interested in her and stumble across one in the stores, I urge you to buy her without delay. Unless Mattel churns out a lot of stock between now and then, I expect she will remain scarce until after Christmas. I think she is a must-have for any Monster High enthusiast.

Abbey on Order

This morning I was able to order Abbey Bominable.

Tuesday evening she showed as in stock, but by the time I was able to try to order her she sold out. Today she went from in stock, to order soon!, to estimated stock date Oct 9, to sold out in an hour. I don't think any previous Monster High doll has been this popular, not even Ghoulia. I am thrilled to finally have one secured for myself, since I have not seen one here in the wild yet. Of course now that I have ordered one I will find dozens of her in stores this weekend!

Once she gets here she will be the top of the debox list, so hopefully I'll have a review of her up within a week. I am still working on a couple of other reviews, so they should be up soon as well. Some dolls are terribly hard to photograph!
