Beatrice, Pippi and No Name Yet

My intention was to exclusively buy 1/6 dolls and action figures for my doll story this year. It's February and already I slipped :-D. And not once, but 3 times! I really should block Ebay and online doll stores  (of course I won't, ha!).

But I couldn't help it, I wanted these dolls very much and pushed the "buy" button... And I'm not sorry ;-D.

So who are my newcomers? They are all on the way, so these are pictures I took from the internet.

The first one is Beatrice from Bonnie & Pearl. With purchasing her, I broke another rule: "I will only own all vinyl dolls." Beatrice has a soft body. She's 50 cm (20 inch) tall.

Bonnie & Pearl is a company located in the U.K. There are 7 dolls to choose from, all so very cute :-). But Beatrice was my favourite from the first time I discovered Bonnie & Pearl. I love her red hair!

The next doll is another redhead: Pippi Longstocking from Zanini & Zambelli, Italy. She was produced in the seventies. My Pippi doesn't have her original outfit, but will look very cute in other clothes too. She has adorable freckles and visible front teeth (not very clear in this picture).

This Pippi is 33 cm (ca. 12 inch) tall. I already have a Toyse Pippi, I think she's taller. I can't check because she's in a box right now.

And the last one: a new version of 1970s Sintra from Berjusa. These dolls are made by Folk Artesania in Spain. I bought her undressed on Ebay. I'll have to give her a name, but don't have inspiration at the moment.

The Folk doll has a body very similar to vintage Nancy dolls from Famosa. Sintra had a modern wardrobe but the Folk dolls are dressed in beautiful regional Spanish costumes. She will make a great friend for my Nancy :-).

So... I sold many large dolls last year to make room for 1/6 dolls... Hmmm... ;-D.

  1. Hahahaha, I know what you mean. I didn't want to buy any old Barbie and now I'm wainting for two. ;D

    Your new dolls are adorable, but my number one is Pippi. She's cute!

    1. Hi Kamelia, I have a soft spot for Pippi, maybe because she was my hero when I was little, along with Emil :-).
      Oh, I'm curious which Barbies you bought! I can't wait to see them :-).
      My problem is that I want a nice small collection with similar Barbie sized dolls, but then I see all those lovely big dolls for sale and I can't resist :-D!

  5. beatrice is very cute. pippi is definitely the pippi from the tv series! and the third one doesn't only need a name, but also some clothes, otherwise she'll be cold. ;)
    amazon is very tempting to me when it comes to old records by bands i like that are not available in music stores.

    1. Hello Chema, hahaha! She certainly does need clothes, shoes and underpants alone won't give her warmth ;-D.
      It's true, online stores are so tempting! Do you also look on todocoleccion? I buy there too, although rarely, but I also like to look only there, to discover unknown dolls :-).

  7. Ja, ja, ja, Millicent! You got caught by the magic of Spanish dolls!!! That is what happens to me all the time, I have to stop but I can't!!
    The three of them are absolutely gorgeous but I really love the two last ones. That Pippi is wonderful!! and Sintra is marvellous too. I have a Sintra in my storage room in the attic, I have to let her come down!
    Best wishes from Spain!

    1. Hi Rosana, oh yes, I really like Spanish dolls, especially from Famosa and Paola Reina. I would love to own a Pierina some day :-).
      I'm very happy that Pippi is on her way. She's adorable!
      Sintra is a perfect friend for my only Nancy, they will look so cute together! I would love to see your Sintra, mine is a new version.
      Big hugs! x

  9. Cute dolls and I'm not surprised you changed your mind. I remember your earlier dolls, which you probably sold. They were just beautiful and probably sometimes it's a pity that they left <3 Hugs :)

    1. Hi Urszula, I'm glad you like them :-). I've sold dolls that I probably never will find again, some were very rare... Luckily there are always other dolls :-). Thank you for your sweet comment :-). Hugs back <3
