Sending Christmas Cheer 51865 Madame Alexander Doll Re-released

Today we received in our Sending Christmas Cheer Doll from the Madame Alexander Doll Company.  This cute Christmas-themed Wendy doll has been re-released to coincide with the 2013 holiday introduction of Hallmark's ornament

This collectible doll was originally debuted back in 2011, and is as cute as ever.  She has dark brown hair in braids and freckles across her cheeks.  Her traditional Christmas outfit is comprised of a green and red plaid Christmas dress, and red flocked coat.

We think that it would be adorable to display both the Wendy doll and Hallmark ornment next to each other.  What do you think?

Brutus Charlie Bear On His Way from the UK

Just got word from our wonderful Charlie Bears rep that Brutus is on his long journey from the UK to Texas.  We expect that he will be arriving mid-week.

Several customers have expressed interest in this massive teddy bear and we can certainly see why. He is 23 inches tall and has a very serious look on his teddy bear face.  His plush fur is a beautiful brown color and the fur around his nose and eyes is just a bit shorter with a touch of darker airbrushing to add to his realistic look.

We are sure that this Charlie Bear will sell out quickly, so please either email us or give us a call if you would like for us to put one to the side for you when he arrives.  As is the case with most of these collectible teddybears, once they are sold out, they can no longer be ordered.

Just In time for Halloween Decorating - Scary Cat by Steiff, EAN 682513

We were very impressed that Steiff overnighted the Scary Cat EAN 682513 Halloween cats so there would be plenty of time for customers to receive them by Halloween.

This black mohair cat stands 13 inches to the tips of his ears and measures 17 inches to the top of his tail and is collectible in every way.  His green cat eyes make him a tad spooly, and his orange ribbon highlights his black Schulte mohair perfectly.

This collectible cat was brought back into Steiff production exactly 111 years from the original.

Why not add him to your Halloween Collection?

Lorella Falconi Violet Skye Doll Has Finally Arrived!

Lorella Falconi's 2013 Violet Skye doll has finally arrived.  She is quite amazing and even more stunning in person (and we thought that her photos were really nice) :). 

She stands 15-1/2 inches tall and has hand-blown German violet glass eyes and light brown human hair wig.  Her hair is styled in pigtails. 

We were very fortunate to get edition #6 out of an edition size of 50.  Please email us or give us a call if you would like more information.

And of course, please remember that we offer layaway plans and can customize one to suit your specific needs.

Helen Kish Piper Big Sis and Peyton Are Here!

The long-awaited 2013 Collection of dolls from Helen Kish Dolls are finally starting to arrive.

Last Friday we received in both Peyton and Piper Big Sis.  Both are excellent and they are so very different. It is definitely Helen's hand-painted eyes that set these dolls apart from other limited edition dolls.

Piper Big Sis is a platinum blonde-haired beauty while Peyton has carrot-top red hair.  They really make a cute couple.

Please stay tuned for the arrival of Bethany Falling Leaves and Tatum Gotta Dance.  Hopefully, they will be arriving shortly.
