8 things I'd love to see from Mattel in 2019

Hi again!

I know I should be editing my “How to make a doll TV” video, but instead of that, I feel more like writing. To be honest, this post isn’t what I had in mind when I said I’d like to write some opinion post, but thanks to Barb The Evil Genious’ latest post, I came up with this idea.



I know it’s too early to start making Christmas wishes, but anyway, here’s a list of the things I’d love to see from Mattel in 2019. Spoiler alert, several of them have to do with articulation.

How to make a doll TV that "works"

Hi again! It's just taken me over a month to write a new post. I've been keeping myself busy: I'm doing an online marketing course, Mr. Monster and I are trying to do some sport, so I can't quite find time in my spare time for blogging. Also, my laptop crashed again and I have to borrow Mr. Monster's.

The other reason why it took me so long is that I wanted to bring you something more creative than another doll review. So, if I can't find the time to sit down and write, I even have less time to craft.

How to make a doll tv that works for Barbie and Monster High

So, as you may have guessed by the title, today I'm going to show you how to do a doll TV in which you can change what's on the screen. I actually came up with this idea a couple of years ago and I was inspired by I toy that I had as a child. However, I never found the time or the patience to work on it until now. So, if you are curious to see how I did it, just keep reading.

Sorry, I dissappeared

Hi everyone! 
It's been almost a year since I last posted. I know I pretty much dissapeared without saying anything and I feel a little bit bad about it. Truth is that, when I wrote my last post, I thought that I'll write again, but I didn't feel in the mood for it and also life stuff got in the middle. I was kind of frustrated with the blog and also I was starting to feel like this was my job and that I HAD TO post every week. I wasn't having fun with it anymore, so I dediced to stop. I thought on writting a "see you later" post, but I kind of let time pass by and didn't do so.

In all honesty, the thing I feel a little bit more sorry about is not saying thank you to Phyllis from A day in the life of my dolls for the great stuff she sent me. I don't know if you remember it, but a while ago she had a giveaway and I won second place in the International giveaway. I did say thank you personally to Phyllis when I sent her my delivery adress, but I also wanted to share it with you. Here's all the stuff she sent me:

Doll Review: Barbie Fashionistas Curvy "Platinum Pop"

Hi everyone! How are you? Lately, I haven't been in the mood for blogging or even posting on my social media. I've been having problems at my job with a new schedule that is horrible and my coworker's bad mood. Besides that, we've been busy with some family appointments that we had, so that left me with less time for blogging. But nevermind, I don't want to bore you with my problems, so let's talk about something more fun: dolls!


Today I'm going to review Barbie Fashionista #63 "Platinum Pop" , from this year's Fashionistas collection. This doll has the new curvy body and, since the first time I saw her, I new I wanted her in my collection.

Doll Review: Barbie Fashionista "Fancy in Flowers"

Hello everyone! I swear I try to blog almost everyday, but stuff and life happen and I never find the time. I still have a few dolls to review before the new semester starts and, as usual, a ton of crafts projects that I haven't even started. Today I finally have found some time to write this review, even though I took the photos over a week ago.


The doll in today's review is Barbie Fashionista "Fancy in Flowers". I liked this doll because of her big hair and her really dark skin, but a couple of things could be better. Let's start.

Mini Review: Funko Pop! Princess Leia and Faye Valentine

Hi everyone! How are you? No, I haven't made up my mind yet about those dolly names that I'm supposed to choose. Mr. Monster and I have been assembling some Ikea furniture and re-organizing the doll/craft/study room. I have some doll reviews to do before the new course stars, and also I have a new sewing machine that I haven't used yet. I'd love to do a doll couch, so I can display my Barbie dolls in their new shelves. 


Today I'm just going to do a quick review of two of my last Funko Pop! figurines: Faye Valentine and Princess Leia. I bought them a while ago and Mr. Monster was a little very impacient to open them, so we can display them with the rest of our Funko collection. So here we go.

Name that doll

Hello everyone! How are you? July is about to end and I wonder what I have done with my time. I still have lots of things to do before the new course starts!


Today's post is a little bit different. If you have been reading this blog for a while, you may have noticed that, at the end of my posts, I usually ask for name suggesstions for my dolls. So, I've decided to put all my unamed dolls together in this post and try to find a name for them. Some I have already a name or two in mind, but some I have no ideas. Let's start!
