Integrity Toys or more specifically their designers are really stepping up their game.  The accessories are just getting more and more detailed with each collection.  That purse with the tassels…I DIE!

From boots to bag, this one has it all for me.  The glasses were a nice detail add and the thing that pushed me over the edge and got me to add this one to my wish list from my dealer.  For me, the added value was that he is sooooo Pacific Northwest.  Had to try and buy.

So that wraps up the images from The Industry Lovesick Collection.  While it is not what I collect, I loved the vibrant color combos and nod to recent Gucci runway shows.  I also loved all the additional little details Mr Buttry added in…particularly the glasses.  I don’t know about other collectors but for THIS collector, it’s those little “value adds” that push me from a “ well I like it” to an “I have to have it”.  As a collector, it makes me so happy…as a business person, it makes sense as a business move.  All around good!

Also, it was really nice to see David bringing back some favorite characters from discontinued lines.  It shows he is listening to the collectors and that is always a good thing.

Ok, so if you are interested in any of these dolls and you are not part of the WClub and already contacted your dealers, you need to act fast.  These dolls are going quickly and some may already be sold out.  If you don’t know where to check for dealers go to the link below.

    I only ordered Bellamy, to many accessories not too. The others, well, I appreciate the forward thinking but just to much of a departure from my collecting taste.

    Dear Rebecca,
    First, it’s wonderful to see you are back blogging. It means everything is back to normal and you are in my prayers always.
    Second, we both collect the exact same things so I am glad to literally read my thoughts exactly.
    I ordered him. He is so cute and irresistible for all that you have expressed. Then, I had to order Janay. I named my second cat after her. And I love an AA beautiful woman. I may redress her and give the clothes to Poppy.
    Great review as always. Talk to you soon.

  3. It is nice to see these old names back again and the dolls and outfits are very nice. May I ask how tall they are?

      Slightly taller than 12 inches. They kind of shrunk the head of Janay and Alyssa to better fit the Industry body.

      • So 12.5 like the Poppy Parkers and other Integrity dolls. Thanks. I thought that would be the case.
