David Buttry gave us a sneak peak and a couple tastes of where he was going with his 2017 Poppy Parker collection at the 2016 Integrity Toys Convention last year.   Here were some of the slides he shared.

It’s a Poppy giftset!!  So per the write-up for this doll, Poppy has left  Paris of last year ( blue polka dot outfit) and has gotten a makeover on Carnaby street in London.  Her new look is the blond bob and white mini.  Wow!!  From prim and proper to hip and mod.  Very nicely done!!  Now I am the first one to say the 60’s are not my favorite fashion era but David Buttry has really put time and effort into the story and detail on these.  This doll is worth it for the  blond bob makeover doll alone.  Add in the adorable  brunette and the amazingly detailed accessories…total buy.  I’m in.

Another giftset!! ..but not with dolls…this time with clothing.  According the write-up on this one, Poppy is debuting her new clothing line of “Poppy Gear”.  This set comes with all the clothing and accessories pictured.  I ADORE the facial screening on this one.  There is quite the treasure trove of shoes in this pack as well.  These fashions are straight off of Carnaby street.  Love the blue dress with the orange striped tie the best.  The color combination is perfect on this doll….and I don’t even like mod clothing…but I enjoy this.  Thank you Mr. Buttry for helping me to see the appeal of the 60’s again.

How adorable is she?!!  I absolutely adore the accessories in this one.  Can we all remember ( well all of us in a certain age bracket) the clear plastic umbrellas we toted to school every day?!  Love the little collared sleeveless dress.  Surprisingly enough though..I did not get this one.  The overly bright pink lips, while totally accurate for the swinging 60’s were just too vivid for me.  While I didn’t purchase this one, I can still appreciate her adorableness.  She is just plain fun!

Okay…so this was the first doll in my shopping cart for this collection and I will give you one guess as to why.  Do you need a hint?  It’s in the accessories picture. Come on..I’m a photographer!  Yep, that little camera had me all gooey inside.  The watch and pink gloved hands also added to the appeal along with the soft facial screening and pastel tweed of this suit.  But the camera…this is all about the camera for me.  By the 1960’s the 35mm camera had all but taken over.  What is that?…is it an old Halina 35x…could be an Spotmatix.  Yes, I am THAT much of a camera geek.  Anywhoo…Thank you David for this one.  Love her and absolutely ADORE her accessories.

David Buttry and the Integrity Team also added a nice little dessert into this collection.  The WClub offered up an event exclusive doll…not a lottery doll but a doll available to all club members.  As popular as Poppy Parker is this is an especially nice perk.  As a club member, I say “Thank You!!!”  for that one.  She is actually my favorite of this entire collection too.

Love the facial screening on this one.  Very reminiscent of Out of this World Poppy Parker and I adore that one too.  For this design, David explained that she is acting in a spooking TV show called “Misty Hollows” hence the candle stick accessory.  Nicely done Mr. Buttry.

As a whole, I found the first wave of this collection, from the initial offerings at last years convention to the new dolls just revealed this Friday, entirely cohesive and spot on for the time period it advertised.  There was some diversity as far as skin tones and their was range within the line.  What I mean by that is there were some more refined looks along with fun, flirty and hip.  For those not entirely excited by the fashions of the 1960’s there were stellar accessories and beautiful facial screenings to admire and act as an enticement to buy.  A well thought out and cohesive lineup in my opinion.  Mr. Buttry stayed true to his vision as expressed at the 2016 convention while trying to appeal to the very diverse collecting tastes of the Poppy Parker collector community.  Not an easy thing to do.  It’s a very fine needle to thread but I feel David Buttry has successfully done it with this collection. 

To David …I raise my glass…job well done!

For those of you who are reading this and  and wanting to get any of these dolls ( except for Misty Hollows..she is only available to club members) , you might want to call an Integrity Toys Dealer sooner rather than later.  These Poppy’s are going fast.

Riviera Drama Revealed!!

Back in February, one of the WClub membership dolls was revealed in sketch form.  Yesterday, her promo shots were revealed and it had many WClub members clapping their hands with joy.  You can read about the how this doll came to be here.  It’s an interesting way to decide on a club doll.  This doll was only available to WClub 2017 members as an optional upgrade with their membership purchase.

I am feeling an Elie Saab vibe here…the picture below is from his 2017 Resort collection.  The fact that he used wedge shoes also with this look makes me think this was one of the inspirations for this look.

©2017 Vogue 41-elie-saab-resort-17

So…how do I feel about this reveal?  I love the facial screening!  Green eyes on a pale skinned raven Agnes…yummm!  Also kind of happy they went with the nude lip.  It feels very on trend for right now.  This also makes her infinitely more re-dressable.   I am thrilled that the jumpsuit isn’t black.  I think jewel tones definitely fit with the “Riviera” theme. I adore the jewelry!  What concerns me is the fabric shown.  I don’t know if it flows like the original design does.  It looks kind of stiff to me but then…that could just be the image and how the model is posed.  Also…what is with this purse?  Did they want to go for Christmas colors?  I don’t think I would have chosen red.  I may be in a minority here but I like the wedge shoes.  It’s more casual and we don’t have shoes like this so if I want to dress this outfit up, I can certainly find a pair of black strappy sandals in my IT box.  Also, I am hoping the hair isn’t too “crunchy” as in…stiff.  It looks like it might be though.  It does help with those annoying flyaways that I end up editing out in PS later anyway Winking smile

Meet You at East 59th!

Wow!!  Wow, Wow, Wow is all I can say of Integrity Toys newest product line.  For those of us who have been waiting for the return of our beloved Victoire Roux…the waiting just got a little sweeter.  While we did not get a new Victoire, we did receive some of her friends and this new world that IT has created looks to be amazing!  The director of this yumminess is the uber talented Chris Stoeckel.  While we did not get Victoire in this new release, we did get word that she is coming.  {That sound in the background is Rebecca squealing with happiness}.  The story behind this line is 1950’s Hollywood and a possible feud between competing divas..I’m thinking Joan Crawford/Betty Davis.  With all that drama, you need killer fashions and who better to do that than Chris.  We have loved his 1950s inspired couture in the Victoires of the past.  It looks like his future designs will take us to a whole other level.  Soooooo excited!

{FAINT!!!}  Oh…my…word.  I am traveling as I write this blog post and I was sitting at a restaurant yesterday morning when these pictures came into the WClub members inboxes.  I am absolutely sure I embarassed myself when I squealed with delight on this one.  Where to start with the love…..hmmmm.  Ok, first is the color combinations.  Adore this red and black with the raven hair.  New face sculpt on these characters and I love them.  I don’t advocate smoking ( Constance..you need to rethink that one) but the props are so appropriate for the 1950’s.  It’s the attention to detail and the playability that I love the most I think.  Chris has given us two separate looks on every doll.  Bonus!!!  Love it!!!

{FAINT…AGAIN}.  Chris, next time give us collectors some warning before you unleash this kind of gorgeousness on us  My heart cant take it Winking smile

A redhead in electric blue!  Adore.  Love, love, love the silhouette on the gown.  Also love the embroidered pants look.  the accessories are spot on…except…for the plastic shoes.  Nope…no at this pricepoint people  I am hoping IT rethinks this one.  I and many collectors concur…this is a misplaced note in the middle of a beautiful symphony.  Apparently Evelyn likes the makeup because she comes with a full set.  Adorable!  Head to ankle gorgeous…plastic shoes need an upgrade.

{Rebecca now has a concussion from fainting}

OK, so this might be my favorite.  The two separate looks are to die for..evening to day perfection.  The accessories are spot on.  I adore the floral headpiece.  The plastic shoes have to go but everything else is a huge thumbs up.  Also adore the facial screening on her.

{Rebecca is now on her way to hospital…too many faints and now has concussion}

Cocktails indeed!  I know I will need a few after this collection to lament my poor, poor wallet.  I have a think for well tailored suits.  This one is perfection  I love both sets of gloves with these looks  The driving gloves in particular!  Simple jewelry is perfect here as the suit s the star.  The shoes..oh why oh why with the plastic.  I’m sound like a broken record…I know.  The facial screening on her is my least favorite of this collection but not a deal breaker.  I’m still buying. 

The big questions from me and many collectors is…what is the body on this lady?  Is it FR2, Victoire…enquiring minds want to know.  I am sure we will get answers soon.  At the time this goes to print there will be a live chat with the designer Chris Stoeckel.  I am sure he will give us this info. 

I hate the write and run but I am on he road driving a bunch of orchestra instruments and luggage back from L.A.  Will hopefully have more information to share with you tomorrow.

If you want to purchase these beauties find your local Integrity Toys Authorized Dealer  I would run not walk as many of these have already sold out to WClub members.


I Believe in Fairytales!

©2017 Integrity Toys, Inc

If you were a W Club member this past weekend and attempted to get a coveted ticket into the Integrity Toys 2017 convention…you were definitely hoping for happy endings.  The event sold out even faster than last year…in just an hour to be precise.  Since spots were limited to 500, many were a little nervous about whether or not they would get in.  I know I was.  I am happy to report that this collector had a happy ending to her quest for a golden ticket.  Adding to the excitement of this event is the fact that it will be held in fairytale land itself…right next to Disneyland in Orlando, FL.  Double win in my book!  This event will take place October 18-21, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando.  Registration fee is  $550.  If you are interested in attending, you can add your name to the waiting list here.

For this years convention, Integrity Toys continued a little perk they added last year for W Club members.  It’s a little taste of what will be coming to attendees in the convention collection.   Even if you are not attending the convention, you can participate in this opportunity.   This is a W Club exclusive.

Reckless Smoke and Mirrors

No…I’m not doing a current political climate op-ed.  WClub members woke up to some much anticipated and exciting news.  The highly anticipated lottery for Trouble Eden was announced.   That alone would have people anxious and excited.

This was to be the final installment of the NU.Face™ Reckless collection….or so we thought.   Integrity Toys and the WClub kicked up the heat however with their lottery announcement by adding the mother of all ginsu cutting knife moments.

But Wait There’s  More!!

Many collectors were lamenting the fact that this Eden would be a lottery.  It appears that the WClub was listening because they offered up a consolation prize to beat all consolation prizes for lovers of the twins.  Yep…you guessed it, the WClub members were given the option to purchase ( purchase not another lottery!) a companion Lilith doll to this Eden…and she has left this collector with her jaw on the floor.

Integrity Toy’s “The Industry” 2017 Revealed

©2017 Integrity Toys, Inc

Integrity Toy’s made their first collection reveal to the newly minted 2017 WClub the other day and all I can say is Wow!  it’s a doozy!  As Dolce and Gabbana and many other designers are going to the so called millennials for inspiration and a new ad campaigns, David Buttry appears to be pulling from the same pool…at least with the fashions and accessories.

Millennials = consisting of individuals born between 1982 and 2004.

There have been a lot of positives and negatives written about Millennials.  I will stick with the positive.  It has been noted that they grew up in an electronics-filled and increasingly online and socially-networked world.  This helps to explain some of the many new and fabulous accessories that come with this collection.  Hope you enjoy. 

Keep in mind that these offerings are available through Integrity Toys dealers and were announced to the WClub a few days a go.  If you want any of these …run don’t walk to try and get these.  Some may be sold out already.

Talk about updated hair!  This one is an early favorite for many collectors.  She comes with sandals and boots and while I love the accessories, I am not loving the dress on this one.  It seems way too dowdy for this doll.  She needs edgy and hip in my opinion not docile little school girl.  The doll though with half flocked and half pink tresses…fabulousness!  **note** This doll is articulated at the ankle. The other dolls are not.

These accessories!!!  A MUST have.  As to the question…”Will Rebecca buy a doll just for the accessories?”.  Well…yes she will.  I do also like the look of this doll but he is very similar to the Ace McFly doll they produced a couple of conventions ago.  I’m still getting him though as the girls and guys in my collection need their makeup artist .Winking smile

David Buttry and his team did an amazing job with this first full scale ‘The Industry” collection.  The accessories alone make this capsule collection worth a look-see.  My only complaint is that…there is a WHOLE lot of black going on here.  It would be nice to see more color coming in.  And also on the subject of black, there was also an absence of it…as in skin tone.  I would have liked to have seen an AA model in this lineup.  There are, however, a whole lot of mix and match pieces that will be fun to pair with other outfits in my collection and I look forward to being the mini stylist with those and sharing on the blog.  I can definitely see my Out of Sight Nadja in many of these outfits.

Again…these dolls are available through Integrity Toys dealers only.  Feel free to click on the link to find them.

So…this year Integrity Toys and the WClub did things a little differently.  They basically polled the 2016 WClub members to see what face mold, skin tone and hair color combination they would like to see in a club upgrade doll.  They gave members a little over 2 weeks to vote and here are the results.

It would appear that the majority of members voted for a cream skin toned, raven haired Agnes.  This was actually my vote so I’m kind of stoked to see the actual product.  I have to admit…I am a little nervous about ordering a doll that I have only seen a sketch of but it is what I voted for so I’m in.

As David Buttry told us at the last IT convention, Poppy is headed to London in the 60’s.  This lady certainly embodies that!  I love that she has this lovely brown hair.  While the 60’s are not a time period that I like to collect fashion wise, I can still appreciate the design and aesthetics of this Poppy.  Love her white gloved hands and jaunty hat.  Thumbs up David!

Oh…my…Word!!!  You had me at the Fabergé egg purse people!!!  Don’t even get me started on the shoes.  Modern day spats is what I am seeing…and me likes.  I love this look.  It is feminine and modern at the same time.  I love that the Integrity team has found fabrics and trims that fit in so beautifully in this scale.

But wait there is more!!!
