Lately I’ve been thinking of expanding the doll family, little bit more seriously than usual (which you might have noticed from the recent That New Doll Itch). But I’m also living life with a budget because responsible adulting is a thing (and that’s how I’m saving up for a car). With my new job, I can put aside a bit more than $10-15 a month towards the dolly hobby and I do have a new doll in mind (sort of).
I would love to add a new-to-me Kenner to the family (because a Kenner collection like Becca/Blythetastic! would be the dream!), but then I’ve also wanted to add a BL to my doll family for literally years. My ‘dream’ BL is still either a Mondrian (Mondie) or Dottie Dot, Sunday Best, or Aztec Arrival. While I adore Goldie and Kozy, I don’t think that they’re quit attainable for me at this time because their prices have gone up so much over the years. Clearly I should have scooped up all the BLs when I first started collecting in 2009! Of course, this was the time when really well-made customs were $300-500 and I thought that was a lot of money to spend on a doll…
Essentially, I have four doll on my ‘wish list’/saving-up-for-list right now. I might even forgo in the quantities that I’ve been buying lately until I get that new dolly in my hands.
Which do you think will look best as the newest addition to my doll family?
