Mostly I scour ebay and amazon. Lately I've fallen in love with one of my customs and she's basically my OC at this point. She's the daughter of Slimer from Ghostbusters and I bought a doll-sized toaster for her recently since GB2 has a 'dancing' toaster scene. I like to think she adopted the dancing toaster. So now she gets to have her little toaster friend.

Other than that I just enjoy seeing what accessories there are for dolls. I don't have dolls in scale with American girl or Our Generation dolls but I just like looking at the cool stuff you can get for them anyways.

A dancing toaster? That's a fantastic idea for a "pet!" Not to go off topic, but does the Daughter of Slimer have a name?

I love looking at American Girl and Our Generation accessories, too. I have over ten AG dolls, so I do own a bunch of goodies for them! I like that their pieces are bigger than 1:6 scale dolls', so they're harder to lose. I think some of my favorites have to be these little milkshakes I got from AG. They're super realistic looking!
I named her Oozie :) Also for doll accessories the brand that makes the 5 surprise balls has made 'mini brands' and they're perfectly sized for AG dolls and some accessories are in a good  scale with other dolls too.

Ooh! I'll have to check them out, then.

Also, Oozie. Perfect name! I love it!  :)

EDIT: Just realized I accidentally posted this in the Off Topic section. :blush: Mods, feel free to move to the Other Dolls section!

I think we had a topic like this once a long time ago, but with the Arena being so quiet, it couldn't hurt to make a new one! :)

I'm always looking for new props for my dolls. Whenever I'm in Target, I always check out their dollar section to see if If they're any cool items. I remember last Halloween I found a fashion doll-sized tombstone. Earlier this year, I picked up a mini plastic succulent to use for my American Girl dolls' dollhouse. Also, Hobby Lobby has a entire section of fairy tale themed charms that are perfect to use as decor for EAH dolls!

So, what are some cool things you guys have found for your dolls?

It might also be something wrong with the peg if it's an older part on an older doll.  I have a basic Cleo who keeps losing one hand.  No idea why, because it's her actual hand, but it's always falling out.

I have a Basic Robecca just like that. Her upper arm never stays on!

My Nonna just had knee replacement surgery, and since its springtime, I got some craft supplies to make an Easter-themed wreath for her. Also got myself a phone case and a mouse pad.

A Eiffel tower shaped pillow for my 18" dolls from Etsy and two Barbie fashion packs from Walmart. Also stick on labels to help me organize so I can find things easily.

That's so weird! My Lagoona from the same line also had two right hands! Luckily I had an extra Lagoona lying around so they swapped hands. I wonder if all of the We R Monster High Lagoonas were released the same way? :wonder:

No, I just checked mine and it has regular left and right hands. So I guess it was a batch, maybe?

Ah, okay. It was probably was just a batch, then. :)

My signature ghoulia and signature spectra. Wonderful quality hair. So soft and smooth

I totally forgot about Signature Spectra! But you're right, I was combing her hair the other day and it's really soft and completely glue-free.

Zombie Belle is going to try to help non-zombie Belle and the Beast with reviving this thread!



I love Zombie Belle's hair! What a beautiful shade of red! Non-zombie Belle and the Beast are sitting next to me as I type this. They told me to say thank you! ;)

Has anyone been finding anything good recently at Tuesday Morning? I've been really wanting to go to one, but the closest one to me is an hour away. I don't want to waste a trip! :)


I found collectibles Barbies last week: Glam Gown silkstone and Hair Fair repro, and both locations near me still have several Sorcha.  I also still see Homecoming Queen, Alazne, and Golden Dream repro from time to time.

My locations also have had some DC Madame Alexander collector dolls for a while.  I had been waiting for the 16" Penguin to go on clearance, and yay, I got her for $28 on Friday. 

Other nifty finds recent and older, but still available at my locations: Funko Rock Candy Marvel figures (female versions); MH Garden Ghouls and budget Comic/Emoji dolls, MH Mega Bloks (older series), DC Superhero Girls - dolls and Lego sets; several playline Barbies, Star Wars Black Series figures, LPS, Bratz.

However, it is hit or miss, depends on what your looking for, and the prices aren't always deeply discounted or consistent. Examples: older Fashionistas are usually still $6.99 and while most Sorcha are priced at $50, one of my locations has one marked at $70 in the clearance section.  I also exchanged the original Golden Dream Barbie I bought because it was $50 where I purchased it, but the other location had several marked $50, but one marked $30. Needless to say, I returned the $50 one and bought the $30 one.  Just something to be aware of as you look around even though I haven't noticed these discrepancies on anything other than the collectible Barbies.

Hope you find some goodies if you go!

Awesome! I've been trying to get my hands on some collector Barbies and older Fashionistas, so it's good to know they carry them. But, wow! I'm shocked that your location still had MH! Now I really have to make a trip there! Thank you! I hope I find some goodies, too. ;)

People have been finding the Fantasy line dolls now at TM. (Mine didn't have any, but it had a few "new" Silkstones that I hadn't seen there before.

Oh, cool! Thank you for the info! :)

I'd have to say Dead Tired Ghoulia, or at least my Ghoulia. I got her back when I was ten or eleven-ish. Recently, I redid her hair out of pure necessity (it had become super messy from years of play), and it bounced back beautifully! I washed and conditioned her hair, then gave it a quick dunk in near-boiling water and voila! Ghoulia's hair is silkier, softer, and shinier than it had even been, ever brand new. The only downside was that the boil-wash made her hair go completely straight, but I think it suits her and it's easier to maintain now.

One thing I noticed while combing her out during the conditioning process is that she hardly lost any hair, so she's well rooted. And although her hair is thinner than some other dolls, I actually prefer it that way because it easier to manage.

Thank you to you both. I really love her already and she has settled in nicely with the gang.  I can't stop brushing her hair and moving her around on the shelf. 

Thanks for the Etsy link!!

No problem! And I know what you mean about brushing her hair. It's so soft!

Not a MH doll, but I bought a Beast doll from the Disney store on Tuesday and one of his legs is longer than the other!

I got the Classic Beast and Prince Eric doll at the Disney Store. Then a pair of earrings and some rings at Icing. Also got a phone case there, but I accidentally got the wrong size and it doesn't fit my phone. :|

I've been doing a lot of shopping! ^^;

If anyone is looking for the super dark skinned MTM Barbie, I suggest checking your local Target. Mine had three of her. They also had a lot of Barbie stuff on sale, but unfortunately the Fashionistas, fashion packs, and MTM dolls weren't a part of it.
