Agnes is Merveilleuse!!

I don’t think you need a translator to realize that this says Agnes is marvelous.  For quite a while now, it has been an Integrity Toy’s WClub custom to offer up an “event doll” made available to members when they hold a webinar.  It’s a nice little perk for members and it’s always in addition to the club dolls offered up as part of the WClub membership.  You get the right to purchase this doll just for being a WClub member.  Many collectors take advantage of this deal.  The doll offered up for this years 2017 Nu.Face and Fashion Royalty collections was very special.  Designed by Jessy Ayala again and according to his explanation was inspired by one of his favorite designers.

2017 Fashion Royalty Collection Revealed!!

©2017 Integrity Toys Inc. Fashion Royalty La Femme Collection

Yep…you see it in the logo above, this years collection is about the woman.    As an added treat for collectors, Integrity Toys gave Jessy Ayala the drivers seat in this years FR collection.  The theme seems to have been set with the initial WClub offering earlier this year of Riviera Drama Agnes.  While Jessy may be taking the theme of bold colors and super chic from the Riviera, there are some definite detours.   He has taken the theme and used it to celebrate femininity…in it’s romantic iterations as well as it’s strength.  He ends with the power suit to end all power suits.  Let’s dive into the collection shall we?

Well bring on La Dolce Vita!  I am getting a very strong Dolce and Gabbana vibe with this one.  A perfect ensemble for relaxing on the Riviera.  Sadly we don’t have an image of the back of this blouse but it looks to be amazing too.    Adore the pink head scarf here.  Perfect touch with the dark hair.  She needed a glamorous pair of sunglasses to complete this look.  The facial screening is reminiscent of Going Public Eugenia and me loves!!  This is cool classic elegance.  Time for a chilled glass of prosecco on the patio overlooking the Mediterranean.

Ohhhh so chic!  I love that Jessy stuck with the rich Riviera colors here.  And come one…Jordan in these honey tresses?!!…YUM!  Jessy commented that he kept the facial screening soft and fresh on this one.  I love that he paired these emerald sandals with the softer blue, turqoise and green tones.  Adore the peach jewelry.  And…Jordan has a last name now too!

There is a Fendi feel to that purse Winking smile

©2017 Net-A-Porter Fendi ruffle purse from net a porter

I love the doll on this one…let me just put that out there.  Beautiful auburn hair on cream skin tone with soft facial screening and a Vanessa 3.0 sculpt.  What is not to love about that.  The outfit…well..it’s not my favorite..and not really getting a Riviera vibe either.  I adore the accessories.  The shirt with the bow detailing…love.  I am not sure I would pair it with the black lace skirt and I for sure would not throw an animal print wrap over the top of it.  This outfit was the weakest showing IMO of the entire line.  I like the components, just not together.  The sweatheart topstitch on the shirt gives it almost a western feel so not sure where that fits into this high glamour Riviera feel Jessy has going.

Holy flippin’ Zorro people!!  I believe I fainted when I saw this one…then recovered quickly and put this doll as #1 on my buy list.  What do I start with…That color on Adele…brilliant!!  The scarf with the hat…inspired!  The belted suit….sublime!!  The accessories…perfection!!  The facial screening…sultry and strong….LOVE!!  This was IMO the strongest look of this collection.  My only complaint is not sure how this fits in with a Riviera theme.  It’s definitely showcases strong and feminine but not necessarily Riviera chic.  Doesn’t change the fact that I am buying it though

Too much fashion

My poor, poor wallet!!!

But wait folks…there is more!  What collection is worth their salt without a lottery item.  Yes…another lottery.  I admit, kind of feeling the lottery fatigue with this one.

Oh my!!  A tanned Elyse!!  Again I hope the lottery Gods are kind.  There is a high edition size on this one so that’s at least comforting.  Now this lady is definitely on theme for the Riviera.  She just needs a Pucci scarf to tie around the swimsuit.  Love this duel bottom leg concept too.  Makes it very versatile.  Another point that I didn’t make in this or the previous blog post about Nu.Face was the fact that these bodies don’t have the waist joint so there is this very smooth waist on them and it allows to show off the midriff without that pesky joint.  Very nice. 

I am so happy to see the uber talents of Jessy Ayala displayed in not one but two different collections this year.  I feel his strongest showing was definitely in the Nu.Face line but the young man has some serious fashionista styling when it comes to the FR big hitters.  While the cohesiveness might not have been as strong in the FR line as Nu.Face it still packed a punch with some really stellar moments.  This collection’s Adele will be talked about for years and years.  I would also like to give Integrity Toys and it’s design team a big thumbs up for the improved diversity in this line.

So, as I have said before, if you are at all interested in these lovely’s, contact your IT authorized dealer sooner rather than later.


2017 Integrity Toys Nu.Face Collection Revealed!!

©2017 Integrity Toys, Inc. 2017 NuFace Heirloom collection image

This collection marks Jessy Ayala’s second season as lead designer for the Nu.Face line and he has not disappointed.  He has provided a collection rich in color and nostalgia while keeping it edgy and current.  This collection seems to draw inspiration from the 2016 Louis Vuitton fashion shows as well as the accessories.   Let’s take a moment to talk about the accessories.  They are BEYOND people.  Jessy’s attention to every minute detail in this line amazes and astounds.  If you love Louis Vuitton bags…you will love this line.  Jessy explained in the webinar that his basic inspiration for this line drew on objects of value..heirlooms.  He explained there are romantic notes with rich jewel tone colors and a definite haunted mansion feel.   Therefore, each doll has some kind of heirloom in her set.  Also important to note, all of the characters have last names now!   So enough of my blathering…let’s get to the dolls.

How cute are those freckles?!!!  From the titian hair to the combat boots…LOVE!!  The back of the shirt is MAJOR and that purse…don’t even get me started with the purse.  I love that the shirt is a body suit because they just fit better when dressing the doll IMO.  Let’s also take a moment to appreciate the thigh high fish nets!  The facial screening , according to Jessy, on this Imogen is an homage to Going Public Eugenia, a clear collector favorite…and again he brings in the heirloom nostalgia vibe with the facial screenings.  Nicely done Mr. Ayala.

And again…the accessories are slaying me.  Wait…is that a spider ring?!!  Sign me up!  For this doll, Jessy offered that the little travel case is the heirloom…and what an heirloom.  That case put this doll in the my shopping cart.  The shoes helped it along and that spider ring clinched it.  That jacket with it’s split sleeves intrigue me and the skirt has a LOT of mix and match potential.  The screening on this gorgeous Latino skin toned Erin is an homage to Paparazzi Bait Adele.  Vibrant and sultry.  Stunning.

Wow!!  while this is not the style I collect ( the high cut legs on the bodysuit have the Mom in me saying “ nope “ ), I can appreciate the styling.  The accessories are beyond again.  The heirloom of this look is the bracelet.  Those tassel earrings are all that and a bag of chips too.  The glasses add to the overall motocross vibe with the pants.  I am again amazed at the details of this ensemble.  Look at all those topstitched seams in those pants!  Holy Cow!  The facial screening on this lady is flat out gorgeous and I considered getting this one just for the doll.  Will most likely regret it later but I passed.  I love how that mulberry stripe in the pants is brought forward by the lip color.  I also appreciate the two tones of soft greyish blue Jessy has paired with the rich black and vibrant berry color.  Yummmmmm!

Fierce!!  Too fierce for words almost.  From that soft petal shrug to the antique heirloom mirror, this woman owns it.  She is also an homage to Paparazzi Bait Adele in facial screening.  For me, this lady is all about that silver hair and sulrty eyes.  I’m not super excited about the lavender hued lips but that can be tweaked some.  In the early days of Integrity Toy’s collections, there were offerings of lingerie dolls and Jessy is bringing that bag around with this heirloom theme.  Love that.

If Nadja was the sultry, then this Erin is the soft romantic antithesis..well..until you get to those leather boot spats!!  Wow!!  Love!!  And they are like textured snakeskin leather like too.  Oh…my…word.  My heart can’t take much more LOL!  The heirloom in this set is the brush.  The baby blonde tresses and softened facial screening bring out the romance in this set. 

If you are interested at all about these offerings, run don’t walk to your IT dealers for these dolls people.  They are selling out fast.

And now for the set everyone wants but only a few lucky ducks will be able to get.  Time for a lottery folks and this time the twins are the coveted want and need for many collectors.

This set has me all gooey inside.  LOVE!!  All the accessories alone would have me buying but the twins ( especially Lilith) are my favorites.  That leather crossover vest on Eden…Dying!  Lilith’s entire outfit has me fainting.  Add in the LV bags and I’m a goner.  Oh lottery Gods, may you shine favorably on me…or…in the event I miss out on this one…may you give me sharp elbows with which to battle in the secondary market for this set. 

So that is the Nu.Face collection for this year.  Wow!!  Don’t you feel like you have eaten a really good meal at a Michelin starred restaurant?!!  There were so many highlights of this collection that I can’t pick a favorite doll.  I would have to give the win to the detailed accessories though and the general cohesiveness and feel of the collection.  There was something for everyone I think.  If you wanted soft romantic, you got it…if you wanted edgy fierce…you got that too.  I also think Mr. Ayala has given the market that youthful fashion forward vibe that many collectors have been wanting to return to Nu.Face.  This look is current.  It is now and extremely marketable.  Excellent job done by the young rising talent of Jessy Ayala and smart of Integrity Toys to bring him on board.


The Millennial Chanel

Many fashion collections are targeting the rich pocket of the Millennial generation right now.  I was interested in styling one of the most recent NuFace girls to embody that plus stay true to the original theme of IT and Jessy Ayala’s Reckless collection…the movie “Clueless”.  It all started with this fabulous jacket from the Etsy shop ElenPriv.  It continued with the amazing necklace from Etsy shop IsabelleParisJewels.  The rest just came into place after that.

Recklessness in the Studio!

I received the lovely dolls I ordered from the “Reckless” collection from my fabulous Integrity Toy’s dealer  this past week and I have to say…I am not disappointed at all.  The facial screenings are delightful and the fashions and accessories exceed expectations on most levels.  My only complaint is that the choker necklaces on both Ayumi and Erin needed to have adjustments.  On mine at least the choker was too tight a fit and I ended up adding another bigger jump ring so it would close around the neck.  I know some people are just popping the heads off and putting the necklace on but that seemed like too much work to me given how often I redress these models…so the jump ring was a good solution for me.

The braids were a surprise to me and apparently a lot of other collectors.  They didn’t show these in the promo shots so I made sure to showcase them in these pictures.  Definitely a Moschino influence with the burned edge bow.

Jessy Ayala did a marvelous job with the modern day “Clueless” inspired collection.  It’s young, its hip, it’s edgy and it also manages to be fun.  I am looking forward to photographing different looks.

I also ordered the Erin but did not get individual shots of her so I went ahead and did a group shot of the girls I did order.  I will be adding Lilith and hope upon all hope that I can add the Eden to.  Please shine down on me oh Lottery Gods.

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.

©2016 Integrity Toys, Inc. Trouble Eden

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.

Yes indeedy.  Integrity Toys has obtained licensing through Hasbro to bring you a collection inspired by favorite My Little Pony characters.  Now…I am going to admit right off the bat… I was never a collector of my little pony.  They were after my time.  My daughter, however, was a huge fan.  Even though I may not be in the market to collect or purchase this collection, I can appreciate the time and though that went into it.  Jessy Ayala is a new designer with Integrity Toys and this is his first full collection with the company.  As I listened to the thought and attention he brought to each and every item, I was extremely impressed.  Well done Jessy!

Things you need to know if you want to buy:

1) This is IT direct product which means you go directly to Integrity Toys to purchase

2) Super limited edition sizes of 500 per doll.  WClubbers will have first dibs on these then they will be offered up to general public.  See each doll for approximate release date

Now that is a colorful collection that embodies the fun of these ever popular toys.


2016 Fashion Royalty Collection–A Delicate Bloom

©2016 Integrity Toys, Inc.

Better late than never right?!  Some collectors were beginning to wonder if we were going to get a new release or not.  Granted, the reveal is a bit later than we have had in years past.  One thing I was not remembering, however, was the fact that the WClub 2016 did not start until February of this year.  Some have pointed out that this reveal halfway into the “club” year is about right.  Time and collector sales numbers will finish the thoughts and stories on that one.  In my opinion, revealing this collection 6 months into the club year is a bit late.  That fact does not stop me from appreciating the product nor making purchases so there you go.  If I am not totally satisfied with the delay in the reveal, I am satisfied with the delivery time on these babies.  They are all available within the next couple of months so no long wait times.  On the downside…They are all coming DUE FOR PAYMENT in the next couple of months.  This is not good for the wallet. 

Note:  “Eye Decals”  I have marked which of these dolls are using the new eye decal application method under doll tech specs for those who are interested.  For me, this new method is ok for now.  Some collectors are very averse to this technique being used and I wanted to make sure everyone had the information before they purchase.  For me, I am willing to give this technique a chance.  I also respect people’s consumer choice and for many this is important information to have before they purchase.

For those readers who are not WClub members, you can find most of these dolls on Integrity Toys dealers sites.  Be aware, WClub members had this information days ago so if you want any of these, contact dealers ASAP.  Some may already be sold out.

Important note from Integrity Toys:  The dolls pictured in this release are prototypes. Final fabrics, colors and textures may vary slightly.  Images of dolls used in this post are property of Integrity Toys, Inc. and under their copyright.

Love the lace overlay and added beading to the lace!  I am also really loving the chunky jewelry design.    All in all a very elegant look.  For some reason, this Natalia left me without a clear “ must have” which is weird.  I totally go for the elegant and refined and this dress has it.  The doll just left me “meh” though and not sure if it was the simplistic hairstyle ( more on that later) or the pale skin tone on a character that I prefer as sultry Latino.  Love the jewelry though so may have to find that in the secondary market.  As I write this I also realize that some of my lack of excitement over this one may be the use of black.  I feel like IT overdosed on it’s use of black last year and here it is again…albeit as secondary colors but still…it’s black!

YAASSSSSSSS!  Now we are talkin’.  I saw this caramel tressed Kyori and felt the wallet open ( a chorus of angels may have struck a chord as well).  I love the soft pastel color pallet!!  Not a whiff of black here.  I love the embroidered leather ( ok not real leather but still) and the edgy refinement of it.  It feels forward and still elegant.  This feels like Jason influence to me and I like it.  Also, whoever is heading up the jewelry and accessory department at IT…HATS OFF!!  Here we have another new design in earrings and its fabulous!  Love the grey purse and sunglasses.  The lavender shoes are EVERYTHING!  Me likes.  I am hoping Dania’s grey gloved hands of last year’s club doll will match this one.

Ok…so I have to admit my first thought on this one came straight from the “I’m a Mom of a 16 year old girl” and it said “ That skirt does not satisfy the fingertip rule”.  Then I started paying attention to the details and felt better.  First I looked at the doll.  Gorgeous Dasha with beautiful smoky eyes pale blond hair.  Stunning.  The jacket is really quite detailed so I told the “mom” in me to sit down and reflect.  I think this one will be amazing redressed and I have plans for that jacket ( maybe not with the skirt Winking smile)

This one will be through IT Direct not dealers people.  What did I notice about this doll first?  The price!!  Alain explained that this was done as tribute to the “basic doll” that IT has done in years past.  I don’t know that there is anything really “basic” about this beauty.  The price alone certainly has many interested.  One pet peeve however…and this is the photographer in me but…the right eye on this lady is off ( left eye pupil is forward looking, right eye it is off to side).  I am expectant and hopeful that in production this item is fixed. WClubbers, look for emails on how to acquire this one sometime in October.

A redheaded Luchia?!!!  I’m in!!  And she has cream skin tone.  Me likes!  The dress is very interesting.  Feeling a little Valentino here but I have not researched so have no idea how close I am on that one.  The yellow purse is certainly a pop of color in this one but I may switch that out.  Also, while I love the industrial jewelry in this collection, I would go for something softer with this gown.  Grey pearls maybe?  Don’t know but will have fun trying things out.

Yes, yes…this gown is almost in retinal searage territory.  My first question was…”Is it yellow or green yellow?”  I am thinking it is more in the yellow category but photographs can be deceiving.  Either way, I find myself admiring this one which surprises me because I am NOT a yellow fan.  I ADORE the embroidery on this one and the fact that it is an homage to the house of Oscar de la Renta endears this one to me.  I am also loving the auburn haired Eugenia with the pink/coral  lips.

First of all…giftset with Elyse…no brainer for me. 1) Love, love, love the soft palette on this facial screening. I believe Jessy Ayala is in charge of all facial screenings now so..Jessy..LOVE!  2) How adorable is this lingerie set?!!…the bows…the bows..you had me at the bows 3) A Marchesa inspired gown!! 4) Another nod to the house of Oscar de la Renta.  Sign me up, I’m in.  I am not a huge fan of the high/low skirt with a suit but it’s not a deal breaker for me.  If they had just had a pencil skirt in the same fabric as the jacket, this set would have been close to perfect for me.  This was the first one in my shopping cart people…the very first.

But wait…there is more!  There is always more with Integrity Toys.  More, as in…event doll!

THUD!  Holy Cow collectors!  I don’t think my fingers hesitated one single moment before hitting the “BUY” button on this one..and from what I am seeing from other WClubbers…they feel the same way.  This one may be up there as one of the largest edition sizes in the history of the WClub.  Edition size will be driven by WClub members who order and I know many are ordering multiples of this one. ( one per membership and many members have multiple memberships).  Where do I start?!  The dress…oh my word the dress!  Pale peachy pink with beaded lace overlay.  Ahhhhhh!!! –another chorus of angels is singing here.  That adorable pink bow clutch!  I am even liking the industrial necklace with this gown.  I and many other WClubbers will be looking forward to the Winter ‘16’ delivery of this one.  Please oh please let it be before Christmas!!! ( not likely but a girl can dream).

One final note that needs to be made about this collection is the very paleness of it.  While I love that they gave us colors other than black in this collection ( yes, they really do listen to their collectors), they did not have any skin tone diversity in this collection.  The yellow gown alone would have been stunning on an Adele.  It left many collectors asking “where is the diversity?”  A very valid question and one I hope Integrity addresses.
