She is cute!  Love the Silkie face on this collection as well.  Beautifully done Mr. Greening.

Next up is the annual installment of Mattel’s Wizard of Oz obsession.  I never thought of WOZ dolls as “cash cows” but apparently they are.  If you ever missed out on these no worries, just wait until next year’s installment.  Don’t get me wrong, I like the Wizard of OZ….just not THIS much.  That being said, this one I would put in the higher end as far as concept and design.  She is very nice.

She is pretty…just don’t know if she is $100 pretty.  If I collected fantasy dolls…I might be considering this one.

It looks like Mr. Best and Lars(set designer for Mattel) are channeling their inner Dior with this set.  How Fabulous!!  I ask again…can we please, please, please get these little chairs in production for purchase?!!

Ahhhh….so very Dior.  I want to see the sketches on the table.  Any clues to what is coming out this year??

{SWOON}  You had me at the hat people…at the hat.  I have to admit though, the little side chignon is making me do the happy dance too.   Here is another thing making me do the happy dance, the new box design.

Rogier over at one of my favorite doll blogs, Dutch Barbie World, reported this morning with these pictures from European Amazon sites.  If you want information on the Silkstone world first…sign up for his blog posts.  I have to say…I like the IRL photos even better.  And that pale pink liner?!!! {Swoon…again}  Now how am I supposed to debox that?!  Rogier laughed and said “Easy, get two”  Wise words Mr. Corbeau.

The new logo is very reminiscent of the vintage Dior logo.

Owning a Silkstone has never been more affordable with this $50.00 price tag.  What are you waiting for collectors?  I will be running to get this one…may even get two Winking smile
