Surprise Saturdays: Fashion Doll Bonanza – A BIG Week!



For fashion doll collectors, this has been quite the week! Biggest news came from Kingdom Doll and their new doll, Brighton, which sold out of its tiny edition in seconds. But not to worry, Robert Tonner unveiled his 2014 Mainline Collection and new offerings for 22inch American Models, Tiny Kitty Collier, Deja Vu and Cami & Jon collections.


Tonner’s Deja Vu

But the biggest news hands-down was JAMIEshow’s release of two new dolls in the Gene Marshall line – Madra Lord and Violet Waters! Violet is already sold out, but as of this writing, Madra was still available – this is the only time Violet & Madra will be released – so grab Madra while you still can! Congrats to the lucky few who secured their favorites during this fashion doll windfall!
