News from my Doll World

European Soccer Championship 2024

We are in the middle of the European Soccer Championship that is taking place in Germany this year. The German national team has reached the quarter finals and will play agains Spain on Friday. The dolls are very excited about this.

Some have put on typical outfits.

Others are even playing and trying to score a goal.

The fans all hope that Germany will win. „Go team!“

Meet the Enchantimals

In spring, when nature comes to life after a long, cold winter, the Enchantimals also wake up. After some spring cleaning I think their house is ready to be shown to everyone. They live on a shelf in my Dollroom in a self- made house – and I think they are quite happy there. I do not often play with them, so they live a quiet life. I hope they don’t feel neglected.

Here is their house – it has got different floors with different rooms and it even has a roof top terrace that they can use in summer. Of course the house is full of plants because the like living in the middle of nature.

On the ground floor there is Pettia Pig’s cafè and a little shop run by Bree Bunny where the Enchantimals can buy all the things they need.

On the first floor there is the living-room – they even have a fireplace for cold winter time.

There is also a balcony.

On the top floor there is the bedroom.

They have got a small garden, too.

And of course there is a bathroom.

In summer they can use the terrace.

Now meet my Enchantimals collection. I stopped collecting after some time because the house was full although there are still some other interesting characters .

Happy Easter 2024

It’s Easter time again and the girls were very excited. Most of all the Liv Dolls – they are big Easter fans. So, a week before Easter they started decorating their room in the doll house.

And they started looking for the Easter bunny in the garden.

I think they found him.

Bunny was very busy because she had to hide all the eggs for the Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday.

And then finally it was time – Happy Easter !

Luckily on Easter Sunday the weather was OK – not sunny, but at least it didn’t rain. So the girls could go on an Egg hunt.

On Easter Monday it rained almost all the time, so we spent all the time indoors eating chocolate eggs.

Someone jumped out of the Easter basket. Marilyn, my first Barbie Looks doll joined the collection.

Happy New Year 2023

We made a little trip to Augsburg over New Year – so there were no big parties in Dollietown this time, but we had two little companions with us – Lucy and Beverley- I think they quite enjoyed the trip.

On the first evening we went to Winterland – there we enjoyed spiced wine and country potatoes.

On the second day we went on a tour of the town. Behind the girls there is the „Kälberhalle“ – the restaurant where we celebrated New Years‘ Eve.

As the girls didn’t go with us to the party, they insisted on having some champagne before.

On the first of January we enjoyed a long walk along the river Lech. The weather was dry and sunny although quite windy.

It’s Christmas time in Dollietown

Like every year Christmas is a big thing in Dollietown. The preparations normally start two weeks before the 1st of Advent in order to get everything ready in time. During these two weeks the doll room is in a terrible disorder as it is a lot of work to put up the Christmas market and dress all the girls and boys in suitable outfits. Every year I realize that I don’t have enough outfits and have to order or sew new ones.

But then, when everything is ready, Dollietown is magical.

Now let’s look at some details.

There is a big stage, where the dolls can perform Christmas songs.

Some prefer to perform off stage.

There is a Christmas circus where you can see magical performances.

And of course there are Carol singers.

Have you ever heard Christmas carols sung by a cat choir? Well. it’s quite an experience.

You can go on sleigh rides.

Or go ice skating.

And of yourse you can buy Christmas trees.

Quinn is having a lot of fun. Let’s scooter towards Christmas!

While Harley bough a snow globe.

The two new Draculauras are having fun,too. It’s their first time at the Christmas market as they joined my collection this year. They got new outfits suitable for the cold weather.

The kids are having fun in the snow – there is always snow at Christmas in Dollietown.

There are lots of things going on inside the doll house, too.

There is a toy store ready for the kids at Christmas.

The shop assistants put on suitable outfits.

Poppy also got a new outfit, which is more suited for indoors and looks great under the Christmas tree.

Cookies are very important.

So are presents and drinking hot chocolate in front of the fire.

On Christmas Eve – Santa came to town with his two little helpers.

Now let’s have a look at the bigger 1/4 and 1/3 scale dolls. They like Christmas, too. Here are some of the new outfits they got this year. The Minifees like ugly sweaters, but always stylish ones.

While the Evangelines prefer more elegant outfits. They dressed as Victorian Carol singers.

Someone is always a Grinch.

Or at least wears a Grinch outfit.

The highlight is always the Christmas show underneath the tree on Christmas Eve. It’s become a tradition that the BJDs that joined the collection during the year have to perform in a little show. This year we had an elf choir singing „Five little Elves“, Brooklyn insisted on presenting a Dinosaur poem and we had the story of the Christmas Bunny.

After the show the new Christmas dolls come out.

On the left Pixie – she is a Lydia Studio head on a Minifee body – bought second hand. She needs another wig and the body is not in avery good condition, so she will need a new one. On the right is Daisy – a Myou doll.

Harley and Wondy on tour again

Harley had heard of the big pumpkin exhibition in a nearby town so she insisted on visiting it. We went there shortly before Halloween.

Harley was very happy … there were so many things to see.

There were huge piles of pumpkins.

They came in different sizes, forms and colours.

Some were already rotten… Harley was very curious.

Others you could use as seats.

There were different statues made completely out of pumpkins. Here are just some of them.

And there were scary faces.

Harley tried to smash some pumpkins ….

…. and she succeeded.

We had to buy the girls some pumpkins that they could paint for Halloween.

Which one is the scariest?

Happy Halloween

Well, it’s October again and as always there is a lot going on in Dollietown before Halloween.

The shops are decorated with typical things…

… there is a pumpkin patch where the girls are sure to find the right Halloween pumpkin …

… and there is a pop up store for Halloween costumes where every doll can find the suitable outfit.

The girls are very excited about their outfits and they all hope to look their best.

Here are just some of the outfits.

DC and Fiona – Day and Night

Lilith and Vivian – Steampunk

Mirwen, Nicki, Livia and Ellowyne – Travelling in Time

The Evangelines – Victorian Elegance – well, Elvira is always different, she didn’t want to wear a long skirt … the others were annoyed.

The Livs are ready for the Halloween party – the Motto is „Dress like your favourite Disney character“

Cami, Miette and Brooke decided to stay casual and only wear Halloween T-shirts.

There were lot’s of things going on at Halloween. Trick or Treating is a big thing – everyone hopes to get the most sweets.

Baby was very excited – she had put on her Pumpkin costume days before. Lunnula had to accompany her so that she didn’t eat up all the sweets at once.

In the evening there were many parties. The Livs celebrated indoors. They had decorated the room days before.

The Ghouls celebrated outdoors at the big annual Casta Fierce concert. As always Clawdia Wolf made a report for the DBC.

At Midnight … “ Double, double, toil and trouble/ Fire burn and caldron bubble“. I wonder what the three witches are brewing. Hopefully just a drink for the Halloween Party.

Now just some impressions from the human world. We like Halloween, too.

Welcome to Dollietown Zoo

Dollietown Zoo is a favourite place for the dolls. Every year there are new attractions. So, let’s go inside. There are many new tortoises.

The orangoutang has got a baby!

There are different habitats. First the desert:

The swan pond is very relaxing!

Some of the girl’s favourite animals are the red pandas.

They are some of my favourite animals, too.

There is also a pet zoo for the younger girls.

Harley’s little black holiday book – the fish party

Well, we are all back home again and as alwys Harley wanted to throw a party for her friends. She ordered lotl of different fish rolls ( which I had to make).

Of course there were also drinks and the girls had a lot of fun. Harley wanted to see if the fish tastes differently if you eat it upside down. Well, she always has funny ideas …

There was also a fish barbecue for the girls who wanted warm food. Harley 2 seemed to like that better. Or did she want the beer from under the table?
