Heidi Plusczok Receives Jone's Publishing Lifetime Achievement Award

We were very pleased to hear the announcement that Heidi Plusczok is going to be presented the Jone's Publishing Lifetime Achievement Award at this year's IDEX, which will be held in April.

Heidi has been creating her magnificent dolls for more than 22 years now.  Her dolls are even more special in 2013 as Heidi has decided to make her vinyl limited editions even smaller in number this year.  This will allow her to hand-paint each and every doll herself.  She will not let any doll go on to a collector unless the finished design is perfect.

As most of you probably know, this is the first year that Beacon's Glow Collectibles has carried Heidi's dolls.  We are carrying only the 4 special 10-1/2 inch vinyl dolls at this time.  (Heidi calls these dolls the "Little Ones".  But if a doll collector would like one of Heidi's larger dolls, just contact us and we will get one special ordered for you.

Heidi's 2013 collection is called "Celebration".  Each vinyl doll is emblamatic of a certain celebration - Oktoberfest, Easter, wedding, and the First day of school.

Anyway, we are very pleased that Heidi is being recognized for her incredible artistic talent by being awarded this very special lifetime achievement award.

Thought you might find this interesting regarding Heidi Plusczok Dolls that we are now carrying -

(By the way, we sold out of the Linette dolls and have more on backorder.  They are expected to ship towards the end of April).

Heidi's dolls are exquisite and the detailed outfits that they come dressed in are quite incredible.
