As the year draws to a close, April’s suitcase is packed to leave! Having her as the GOTY was fun, but didn’t quite work out quite how I’d planned. Then again, those plans were made in a fit of inspiration and optimism over last year’s winter break. There are so many unfinished projects/ideas on the back burner for her, it’s probable you’ll see April again next year.
I have little patience with doll props that are not in scale, and suitcases are one of my biggest pet peeves. The point of a suitcase is to put clothing and other items in it to be able to take them somewhere. When companies make doll suitcases that don’t actually fit doll shoes/clothes it significantly reduces their play value.
With the holidays coming up, many dolls will be traveling or possibly receiving a few new outfits. This quilted suitcase is the perfect accessory to keep a couple of outfits or a bunch of shoes shoes organized for travel, and would also make a clever wrapping for giving an outfit as a gift!
In other news, the doll room has reached critical mass and it’s become necessary to get rid of some dolls and toys before adding any more. 😦 The first to go is a lot of Ginny dolls which is listed on ebay right now here. Yep, starting bid is seriously $1, there’s no reserve and local pickup is free.
Appearing soon on ebay:
- Adora Kayla shown on right here
- MyTwinn 18″ – in blue dress here
- Madame Alexander 8″ Fancy Nancy (Posh Puppy)
- Some 18″ Heidi Ott Faithful Friends dolls
- Effanbee repro Patriciakins
I also have available for local pickup (shipping would be very expensive):
