World Doll Day Tag

I got tagged by Jaye at Jaye's Doll Space and Farrah Lily at Cozy Comforts and Dolls. I had never heard of this before, but, thanks to Jaye for her research, I now know what it is! 

For this tag, you are requested to:

  1. List 3 favorite dolls from the ones you got last year
  2. List 3 dolls currently on your wish list
  3. Tag 5 people to do the same thing
So for my favorite dolls, this was difficult to make the choices since I did get so many in 2014. Let's face it, I went a little crazy! Here is what I have narrowed it down to these 3 selections:

The Dhoom:3 dolls which I was able to purchase from a seller in India. This guy was such pleasure to do business with. I wish I had taken pictures of the packaging, because it was amazing! And the shipping was free to, so I was so very happy!



Tenzin and Ayumi from the FR 2014 Convention (purchased on the secondary market). These 2 are a power couple!



Last, but not at all least, I purchased this Wildflower doll. She is named after my sister Margie who passed away in 1969 of leukemia. This doll is very special!


Now for my wish list. I actually have rather large wish list, but these are definitely my top 3 on my list.  

  1. Any Ruruko doll! This little girl doll is so full of cuteness, I just have to have one! She is Momoko's little sister.
  2. A tall, dark and hadsome male Wildflower doll
  3. Any OOAK creation (male or female) from Emmajude or Doll Anatomy.

Here are the friends I am tagging. If you have been tagged before, you only need to do it once! Have fun!

  2. Which seller from India did you purchase the Dhoom 3 dolls from? They've been on my wishlist for quite some time. Thanks.

    1. I first saw the Aliya Katrina Kaif doll on eBay from indiasoldesttoystore-rcs (note: I do see he still has her listed on eBay for $81 USD, free shipping). I used eBay messaging to contact him and asked if he also had the Mattel version of Aamir which he did. He sold him to me for the same price as Aliya and they were shipped together. I corresponded with him via email after that. His email address is: rcstoys@gmail.com.

  3. Emmajude's dolls are really good looking. I just recently saw Dhoom dolls somewhere online. They look like a great addition to any collection.

  7. I see you snuck in two extra dolls by showing couples...pure genius; ) I tagged you, too before I saw that you'd been tagged by Jaye. I'm glad you were feeling well enough to join in the fun. That Dhoom guy looks like the ultimate bad boy. I'll keep him in mind if I need one for a future storyline.

    1. Thanks -- It was hard to narrow it down to just 3, so I guess I cheated a little by posting couples!

  11. Tenzin appears startled by plaudits; Ayumi takes it for granted that she's a favorite.

  12. Piękne lalki kupiłaś w 2014 roku! Gratuluję! Dzięki Tobie wyszukałam też w internecie lalki Ruruko, Wildflower i Emmajude. Są naprawdę wspaniałe!
    To miłe, że masz teraz lalkę Wildflower, która przypomina Ci Margie.
    Wszystkiego dobrego, Phyllis !

  14. Great choices, I especially love Margie, the artist is very talented, I love her work! I've been tempted many times in the past to buy one of her dolls :-). Tenzin and Ayumi look fabulous together. The Dhoom 3 dolls look great too, I've never seen them before! Hugs Linda

  15. Congrats on getting the Dhoom Barbie and Ken. They look gorgeous. A friend sent me photos of that Barbie. She's breathtaking.

    The Wildflower doll is cute. Hope you can get one of those males and the other dolls on your Wish List ;-)
