Integrity Toys and their  WClub just announced the first release of 2016.  It’s a capsule collection entitled “In The Mix” and it will certainly stir many collectors’ imaginations and open quite a few wallets and/or break bank accounts.  According to IT’s marketing director, Alain Trembley, this Color Infusion offering was inspired by today’s music industry.  It’s a smart, sexy street style of a capsule collection with lots of opportunities to mix and match within this or other collections.

Again, love the accessories on this one.  The intricate bustier with leather strapping top and hairstyle work well here.  Then, they soften the look with soft floral printed on “leather”.  Nice mixture indeed.

Two things….two….pink jacket and thigh high black leather boots.  Enough said.

For those of you not familiar with the Color Infusion line of dolls from Integrity Toys, they are 1/6 scale 12.5 inch fashion dolls.  They differ from FR2, Nu.Face and Poppy in that their body type has different proportions and the foot size is larger.  I am clarifying this because some of the clothing can be used on other 1/6 body types and some cannot.  Their shoes are generally too big for other 1/6 dolls. 

WHERE TO BUY: List of Integrity Toys dealers is here.  WClub members had this information a full day ahead of this posting so if you are at all interested, I suggest you contact a dealer sooner rather than later.  These items will be hot sellers.

Honestly, this collection has floored me.  I am  not and have not been a Color Infusion collector.  I have seen this product line since it’s inception and it never really appealed to me….until now.  It feels like they have taken this product line and elevated it about 5 levels.  This is the hip urban street style that the Nu.Face line used to have.  This is, I feel,  the sassy fashion profile that collectors had been wanting to see but had not seen lately from Integrity.  Thank you for listening I.T.!!!  For the first time ever, I am contemplating dipping a toe in Color Infusion products.  Vaughn Sawyer led the design team on this one.  Mr. Sawyer, I tip my hat  to you.

  1. I like Dree HIll and Fan Xi outfit. I don’t collect AA dolls. Mostly cause I have never found ones I truly love. I only have Kwanzaa Barbie because I liked her outfit. But I love Dree HIll. But I already have Water Sprite and the Poppy Parker in the works. So I may not be getting these. But they are fabulous looking dolls.

    Maybe a silly question. But are there supposed to be holes in the ears of ‘Problem Child’ for her earrings? There doesn’t seem to be any, but maybe a faint outline, however I don’t want to try and force anything in case I damage something. She’s my first Integrity Toy doll so im not sure if this is normal or not, haha. Thank you!

    • Not a silly question at all Berri. Sometimes dolls come without holes for the earrings. If you want this doll to wear earrings, you will have to make your own holes. Everybody does this…believe me. Sometimes a pin works fine to make the hole but you may have better luck using a push pin. Alain, the marketing director at Integrity Toys did a youtube video about this very thing. You may want to take a look https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6ZTn6AApyE
