That Holiday Feeling

I did manage to take a few photos here recently that I have been waiting to share.  Hope everyone is maintaining an even strength this holiday season.  Recently the Integrity Toys WClub held another lottery for a much coveted Poppy Parker Doll.  Her name is “That Holiday Feeling”

While her edition size was a whopping 800, it still wasn’t enough to satisfy demand for this popular brand.  There were many left wanting a chance to buy this pretty lady.  I was lucky enough to be picked this time around but I am sad about it because I wish ,à la Oprah, there were “Poppy’s for everyone!”  It got me to thinking about all the fabulous Poppy’s that are already out there and I decided to do a holiday photo shoot with one of my recent favorites.  I know it doesn’t bring “That Holiday Feeling” home to everyone but maybe it will bring a little bit of Holiday Poppy into your home.

Poppy Sizzles in Vegas

This year is Poppy Parker’s 5th anniversary and Integrity Toys is certainly showing up to celebrate it.  I shared a photo earlier today of the first exclusive Poppy Parker for IFDC (International Fashion Doll Convention).  Tonight, two additional Poppy Parker dolls were unveiled to much applause.  These were the convention doll and a companion doll that was given to all attendees.  If you are a Poppy Parker fan and chose this year to go to IFDC, you scored a jackpot in Vegas!

The WClub has set aside a very few of these for a lottery so if you are a WClub member, look to your emails for information on how to enter.  I predict these beauties will be hot tickets on the secondary markets.  There is a huge demand for Poppy Parker and quite a few collectors have expressed interest in this newer and more sophisticated Poppy Parker look.  As for me, I may be tempted to enter for the brunette and the redhead.  Adorable!


Poppy Parker 2014 Reveal

The theme for this years very popular Poppy Parker line is “The Girl from I.N.T.E.G.R.I.T.Y.”  Poppy and her friends are spies for this collection.  The accessory of the collection is a gun.  Each doll comes with one.  Gun control issues aside for a moment, it is kind of a cute accessory for this theme…if one can call a gun “cute”.  There were some big surprises with the reveal this year.  The biggest one was the addition of the quick switch head feature in the Poppy Parker line.  This means Poppy’s head can be popped off ( yes…pun intended) and switched to another head.  In this case, it is the villain ( Loni Lawrence who is called Sebina in this collection) who can quickly disguise herself as Poppy…or evil Poppy as she is being called.  COOL!!!  Second surprise of the collection was the addition of two spy agent friends Penelope Chase (Collette face mold) and Kimiko Gunn(Ayumi face mold).  This is brilliant in my opinion.  It is a great way to bring back some favorite collector face molds in new and fresh ways.  The designers at I.T. never fail to impress me with their creativity in this.  Nice work David!

Wow!!  Poppy Parker in a cat suit with a gun holster.  Guess she is all grown up now.  I love the look of this one and I really like the black gloved hands she comes with.  Will most definitely be using those on other Poppy’s as well.  I adore my 60’s  Poppy “The Happpening” from last year so I am liking this cinnamon haired version.  Boots should have been just a touch taller…IMO.

A spy in gold lamé!  She is not a low profile spy.  Gold lamé has never been my thing but it screams 60’s .  I love that David Buttry paired it with this mint green.  Goldfinger has got nothing on this girl….if you want gold…it’s here.

How adorable is she?!!  Nothing this sweet could keep a gun in her purse…come on…even if it is pink.  I guess that is why she will make a very good spy.  Nobody would expect it.

I was on the fence about getting this Loni version because I adore the streak in her hair but then I.T. threw in the quick switch silver haired Poppy head ….Game Over…I’m buying.  Brilliant idea to try out the quick switch head model with this collection.  We needed an evil Poppy to go with this theme and it’s a perfect way to do it.  This is also a very satisfying way to honor Poppy’s 5th anniversary for collectors.  Thank you David and Integrity Toys!

Does this guy come off as looking like a ferret to you?  He does to me.  I guess it is appropriate for an evil spy.  I see this one and all I can hear in my head is the sprocket theme from SNL and the German accented phrase “ Would you like to pet my monkey?”  He is very cool and I love the Euro chic black leather jacket.  I can’t get past the ferret face though.

Does she carry the gun in her handbag?  Will it fit?  These are the insane questions that keep me up at night LOL!  Perhaps she can hide it under the shoulder bow.  Okay, okay…I digress.  I love the soft updo with this one.  The pink gown with black stitching and beading is beautifully feminine.  The jewelry is fabulous as well.  I am not feeling the “Mayhem” but I can definitely see this one going to the casino in search of the ferret faced Lex.

Arm candy indeed!!!  This one is worth it for the jacket alone.  I mean come on…the portrait just oooozes the phrase “Bond….James Bond”.  Don’t they make the perfect couple?!  He needed to have secret spy documents in the briefcase or at least a grenade or something right.  Does the watch cut through a door?  Probably. 

There was also some information and a picture released about a Poppy Parker shoe pack coming in August/September.  It was listed as another IT direct release which most likely means….lottery.  Picture is available to WClub members on the Vimeo release of the Webinar.  Members should have received info with instructions on how to access it. 

This was a really fun collection.  I am not a big fan of the 60’s fashions but I found myself ordering quite a few of these because they were just so dang fun and cute.  Excellent work David and I.T. 

Information on the other two lines, Jem and Fashion Teen Poppy coming up later today.
