Poppy Goes to Paris!!

Poppy Goes to Paris

And I wish I was going with her!  When David Buttry announced this theme for Poppy Parker last year at convention, I thought I would faint of pure happiness.  Just the thought of this theme and I was dreaming of all kinds of fabulous Poppy Parker Parisian style.  What David Buttry and Integrity Toys gave collectors yesterday were those dreams realized and a confection in pink that has this collector claiming she has seen nirvana…and her name is “Miss Amour”.  You will see what I mean.   The following dolls will be available at Integrity Toys Dealers.  If you are at all interested, you should contact IT dealers NOW.  WClub members had 24 hours ahead of you to order.  Some of these babies are already sold out.

Well Bonjour!  The train case alone had me saying “ Oh yes please”.  Added to it, the adorable houndstooth coat and gloved hands made me happy too.  David Buttry explained to WClub members that there is a range of different facial screenings in this collection so you will see older makeup and newer facial screenings all within this offering.

What’s the first thing a girl is going to do in Paris?  SHOP!  And you won’t just throw on a pair of jeans to go shopping in Paris…you need to do it in style.  This black, yellow and white suit with hat and gloves ensures that Miss Poppy will indeed be shopping in style.  The little bag ( reminiscent of an Hérmes Kelly bag) adds that fabulous finishing touch.  I love the french twist hairstyle on her too.  I am also noticing that there will be plenty of mix and match opportunities within this collection and the doll offered up as the Poppy Parker club doll.  Thank you for that David!

I adore the color here!  This Poppy showcases the newer facial screening this year..gorgeous!  I love the little clutch and open toed shoes.  Miss Poppy is off to L’Opera Garnier in style.

Translated..”This is so good”.  Indeed she is!  Poppy is ready for a night on the town in this adorable little polka dot confection.  I already have her pictured at a little table at Laduree for a future photo shoot.  If I am already thinking about the photos I am going to take of a doll…she is already in my shopping cart…no question.

They had to throw in the poodle!  Game over…I’m buyin’.  Other irresistible items with this gorgeous Poppy are her  lilac/pink gloved hands and that straw purse!!  Adorable!  The poodle’s name is Phoebe.

The color palette of this collection definitely points to the fact that Poppy is traveling to Paris in the springtime.  David Buttry confirmed this in a webcast about the collection.  I adore this lavender on the strawberry blonde tresses of this Poppy.  I also love the new updated facial screening on this one.  It looks like we are getting some new and more sophisticated jewelry for Miss Poppy.  NICE!  I also love that the “Paris in Springtime” outfit will go nicely with the facial screening of this doll and vica versa. 

This collection is an out of the park home run in my opinion.  This is exactly what I enjoy collecting.  I was happy with the base collection but the upcoming lottery offerings are what have me and many other Poppy Parker collectors salivating.

Oh my word!!  She comes with a teddy bear and diary….too cute!!  Why oh why does she have to be a lottery doll?!!!  Here is hoping that the lottery Gods are kind to me.  Looks like the lottery tickets will be sold sometime in late summer.  The verbiage says IT direct so not just WClub offering on this one.  That makes the low 700 edition size even more alarming.  Many more fish in the pond to vie for the right to purchase this beauty.  Good luck to all!

And…finally…the pièce de résistance so to speak of this collection in my opinion….

If David Buttry came up to me and said “Hey Rebecca…if I could design the perfect Poppy for you, what would she look like?”,  my response would be this doll.  1) She is pink 2) She has pink jewelry 3) she has an updo 4) She has soft facial screening 4) She is wearing a high couture ball gown ( I feel Dior here) and 5) She comes with an adorable mini perfume bottle.  I am just going to say it right now…if I don’t get the chance to purchase this one…there will be a sulk fest like no other before it then an immediate grouping of funds to purchase this baby on the secondary market.  This one is a must have for me.  It looks like this is another IT direct so not just WClub members going after this one.  Good Luck to everyone and I may see you in the mud pit of secondary market purchasing after on this one.  I need to go work out now.

Next blog post up in 30 minutes talking about the debut doll from The Industry doll collection.

  1. I am also so overwhelmed!! Mr Buttry pulled out ALL of the stops with this Bon Bons collection of Poppy 💐💐💐. This is my favorite Ingenue period of fashion that I adore for Poppy, and in Paris to boot !! I will be add ring most of these girls to my collection 😍😍😍

    • 🙂 It does not surprise me that you are a huge fan of this collection too. It’s Christmas in May!! ( well…really October since these won’t be hitting doorsteps until early fall)

      May 25, 2016 at 12:44 pm

  2. I love them all but my favorites are Bonjour Mademoiselle, Miss Amour and my absolute favorite is Paris in Springtime. I need a part time job to support this habit of mine. I can’t wait to see everyone’s IRLs of them.

    May 25, 2016 at 9:54 am

    • Heehee…yes we will all feel the bite in the pocketbook with this collection.

      May 25, 2016 at 12:44 pm

  3. How does the lottery work?

    May 25, 2016 at 9:55 am

    • Like any lottery really. You get a ticket and if your number is called, you win the right to purchase the doll. Since this is open to everyone ( or at least that is how they phrased it…IT direct and not WClub lottery) I am not exactly sure if there will be a limit on how many times you can enter.

    I love the fluffy pink Poppy too! Too bad she is so dang popular and a relatively small edition- I think a lot of people are going to be disappointed.

    May 25, 2016 at 10:07 am

    • Yes, I believe you are right….another Poppygate on the horizon. 😉

      May 25, 2016 at 12:46 pm

  5. I love your sense of humor!

    May 25, 2016 at 11:51 am

    • Was it the gif that tipped it over LOL! I am glad you get me. 🙂

      May 25, 2016 at 12:47 pm

  6. I thought usually the lotteries were open to W Club members first, then the general public if there are any left, which there won’t be for these two. Fabulous collection, looking all very Haute Couture.

    OMG Rebecca, I laughed so hard at the last GIF. That was my feeling for the ENTIRE collection. I thought I had died and gone to fluffy Dior pink heaven with bon bons. I even dreamt about these dolls last night. Such sophistication and femininity and elegance. Just amazing. I keep drooling over these images and just like you, if I do not win these lottery girls, I am going to not only be gutted but really mad. I have no clue why they made them lottery dolls. Makes no sense. My elation and happiness of this collection’s reveal is overshadowed by that looming lottery and the anticipated disappointment (I’m a glass half empty type of person).

    I really hope they keep Poppy this sophisticated for years to come. People want to see all sorts of absurd things done to her per the video (skin head Poppy? bald Poppy with tattoos?? whhhaaaat?) and I’m glad David Buttry made it clear that this doll is staying in the 1962-1972 period. Still it worries me looking at some of the tacky and terrible ideas some people on the W club seem to have about what she needs to look like. Mortified is more like it. I hope Mr. Buttry and IT in general take note of the popularity of this line and understand why it is so popular and stick with it.

    Thanks for your wonderful review and sharing your thoughts.

    • Perfect time frame for our girl 🌷🌷🌷

      May 26, 2016 at 3:23 am

  8. *whew* I think I can pass on these, I do really love a few of them and their accessories… but I’m going for “One Poppy of every hair color” and I don’t think I’ve got a chance at the yellow haired lovely… and I already own black and brown… and while I want a red head, these ones aren’t “THE ONE” for me XD

    I’ll be so excited to see the ones you order when they come in though!
