second chance Lagoona Blue 2: review

another doll I missed out on the first time around is the second line basic Lagoona Blue doll. it seems like she was drastically underproduced the first time around. I never saw her in stores here, and it sounded like not very many other people found her either. she is in abundance now, almost to the point of becoming a shelf-warmer.

The Bottom Line:

The Good: lovely Lagoona doll, unique accessories

The Bad: small parts, unpleasant pink/turquoise color scheme (in my opinion)

The Verdict: if you like her look and accessories, this Lagoona Blue will be sure to thrill. but if you're just after the shaka hand, I would advise getting Roller Maze Lagoona instead. she's cheaper and has a different look from all the other Lagoona's out there.

not again

have you ever had the opportunity to buy a doll that you have been really wanting for a while... and then just... not buy it? this is a recurring issue for me.

last night I found a doll I had been really wanting, on ebay, for the price I was willing to pay, which is much lower than the going rate. I hemmed and hawed, and someone else bought it 3 hours after I went to sleep.

while I am disappointed that I didn't get the doll, I am more disappointed in myself. I feel like my low sense of self-worth is an unsurmountable obstacle.

I Love Fashion Abbey, Toys'R'Us exclusive: review

as you well know, I love Abbey Bominable the most out of all the Monster High characters. so I was thrilled to see that she was getting her own fashion giftset. less thrilled when I saw it is a Toys'R'Us exclusive.

The Bottom Line:

The Good: new Abbey doll, 3 complete fashions!

The Bad: no brush or stand, small parts, Toys'R'Us exclusive will make it difficult to find

The Verdict: if you are an Abbey lover or enjoy redressing your dolls, you will love this giftset!
