What Do You Do With Your Doll Diaries?
« on: August 24, 2017, 05:13:07 AM »
I love the doll diaries, but I wish I had a better way to store them. Right now, I keep them in a plastic ziplock bag, but then I purchased an EAH diary lot of 29 and the bag just isn't going to cut it. Also, when I first started collecting, I'd put the diaries together, then misplace them, so sometimes I discover random clusters of diaries around my room. Anyone else do that?


How do you store your diaries? I have no idea, but I don't want to throw them out because I consider them works of art that give the dolls depth and soul beyond being just a piece of pretty plastic  (not that dolls without diaries are soul-less).

Actually, i do the exact same thing... maybe you could switch a bigger freezer bag?

I 100% agree about the diaries giving life and depth to the dolls. I love them!

I love the dairies, they were always my favorite canon.  I've thinned some of mine out, but a plastic shoe box, which you can get at a dollar store, is a good way to go, especially if you have a lot.

Expandable recipe file. It's the perfect size!
I make the dolls Mattel won't.

Great ideas, especially love the recipe file idea!

I keep what I have in ziplocs, have several ziplocs stashed away. A central storage option sounds good.

In thinking about the question, what also occurred to me was a 'book slipcover' (a box open on one side, to display book spines yet keep the books protected). Would be a good way to re-use the cardboard from MH packaging!

Mine are just in stacks on a shelf. I ought to bag them; they'd be less likely to fall behind the bookcase that way.  :P

I've got a Monster High themed box that came with kids' art supplies, which I store the diaries & old McDonald's MH toys in.

The few I have are just in the small box I keep accessories in, but the European ones are fairly useless and I don't really like them overall. I mean, I should, I love the idea of the stories and the canon they provide, but the diaries themselves somehow irritate me because they require storage to prevent them being crumpled. And the European ones lack so much that the US ones have, and I feel like that's seriously unfair by Mattel, so basically I just don't like them much. So I probably am not storing them properly.

Like quite a few other people, I keep mine in ziplock bags for the most part. I actually need to go through and see if I'm missing any, though. I know that I want to get a few of the "poster" cards from releases that I'm missing (or which got damaged, thanks, babbycat, for eating Honey's Circ poster), and I know I've misplaced a few diaries over time.

Add me to the ziplock baggie crew.  I use the quart size.

Thank you for getting the 'Paw Patrol' theme song stuck in my head.  :P
