Barbie for big girls.

16 inch Poppy Parker

Tulabelle 2014

I.T. and David Buttry gave us another fabulous Tulabelle collection to pour over.  Just to remind people who this lady is…she is Poppy Parker’s granddaughter so some of the pieces she has in her wardrobe are vintage pieces from her grandmother’s fashion career.  Note: Gold lame coat on “Front Row” is same coat Poppy wears in “Spy-A-Go-Go”.  Cool continuity David!

Available at all Integrity Toys Dealers

Christmas In July Take 1

Integrity Toys announced 4 new mini collections to it’s WClub members on Thursday and titled it “Christmas in July”.  A word to the wise…when you talk up an event and label it “Christmas”, you better be sure to deliver.  I’m not sure Integrity Toys hit their mark on that one.  I know I was expecting something in the Nu.Face lineup and possibly something from the Homme line as well. Integrity offered nothing from either line and that has left many die hard Fashion Royalty fans feeling like they got up Christmas morning  with high expectations only to receive Ralphie’s infamous pink bunny suit from “A Christmas Story”.  Not a good thing.

For collectors who love 16 inch Poppy, Poppy Parker , Jem and the Holograms and Victoire Roux, this was worth the time you took off work to incessantly check and recheck your emails.

First up was a new set of lovelies from the 16 inch Poppy Parker Fashion Teen line.  Per Alain Tremblay of Integrity Toys, each doll in this mini collection was inspired by a season.

I don’t collect the larger scale dolls simply because I barely have enough room for the 1/6 scale ladies as it is but  I am sorely tempted by these fabulous 16 inch Poppys.  Also, confirmed by Alain, Tulabelle’s and Poppy’s clothing is interchangeable.  In other words, they can wear each others clothing so lots and mix and match options for this larger scale offerings from Integrity.

If you are interested in purchasing any one of these beautiful ladies, go to an Integrity Toys Dealer.


Tulabelle Makes An Entrance

I am a self proclaimed 1/6 fashion doll collector.  That does not mean that I don’t appreciate the artistry and grace of the larger scale fashion dolls.  Normally, I keep my blog within the 1/6 fashion doll arena.  Integrity Toys is introducing a new larger scale Poppy line and I just had to report about it.  Her name is Tulabelle…okay the name is cool enough to get me to want to talk about it.  The story about her is that she is Poppy Parker’s granddaughter.  She is more modern and hipper than the 1950’s-60’s fashion model that defines the 1/6 scale Poppy Parker.  The name alone makes me want to sit on the porch with a mint julep and talk about the fashion forwardness of this new Integrity Toys venture. 

This new line is designed by the talented David Buttry  and will be unveiled to the 2013 W Club later this month during their first upcoming 2013 online event!   If you want info on how to join the WClub for 2013 go here.  Your window of opportunity to join the WClub ends on January 16th.

IDEX 2012 Reveal–Poppy is a Big Girl Now.

One of the most surprising reveals from Integrity Toys at IDEX was the announcement of a 16 inch line of Poppy Parkers.  They will have the name Poppy Parker Fashion Teen to differentiate them from just plain Poppy Parker who is a 12 inch gal.    They are absolutely gorgeous and I really wished that I collected the larger scale ladies.  Alas…there is no room in the inn for those ladies and even though I am sorely tempted….I must resist.
