New Silver Cross Dolls Pram.


A photo posted by Nancy Farrell (@nancyrowina) on

I got a new silver Cross Dolls Pram, I think it's from the 80's, currently using it to display several porcelain dolls and a plastic doll I got in my living room. 

Still trying to identify the plastic doll at the front, I shall do a more detailed post about her in the future. She is very articulated and has no markings. if you recognise the doll please comment.

New Additions To My Collection, Seymour Mann Vinyl Blonde Angel Doll by Doris Lee, And Wicker Dolls Pram.





I got her quite by chance from a local selling site for the wicker pram she came with, to display my porcelain dolls. She was listed as porcelain though she is actually vinyl.
It tuns out she seems to actually be quite rare as the company makes porcelain dolls normally and these vinyl dolls by them were only made for a short time. 
She came with her original dress which is very pretty, but not the trousers so you can see the soft bodied part of her legs. I have dressed her in this pink newborn baby grow for now. She is in the Baby Born Car seat in the photo she fits it well. She has jointed legs and arms and is meant to be displayed sitting and is 12" high when sitting.
She is very cute looking with good eyes and eye lashes, but her body is very stiff, and the cable ties used to put her head and limbs on are too wide and have sharp edges. I'm going to replace them with thinner ones, quite worrying since this doll was meant for children.




And here is the wicker Dolls pram displaying my two Alberon dolls Molly And Sally. 

I'll be taking better photo's of them all and making videos over the next few days, so stay tuned.

Vintage Meritus Fasion Mansion from the 1980's.


I found this fashion doll house in a charity shop and bought it thinking it might be a Sindy house. I soon found out it wasn't and after many hours of searching finally managed to find out it is the Meritus Fashion mansion from about 1984. And this is how it is supposed to be assembled.

Meritus are toy company that also made accessories for Barbie dolls in the 80's too.

I made this video of it to help other people who may have one unassembled and want to know what it is supposed to look like. It also shows some of my Sindy collection as they fit it so well.

I will eventually be listing it on eBay as it's too big for me to keep.

Check Out My Doll Collecting Youtube Channel.

I've started a youtube channel where I'm showing my doll collection, I'm waiting for a better camera I've ordered to arrive as the one I have is rubbish for detail. The format the videos record in don't work with my editing software and aren't HD to begin with so by the time the video gets to youtube it's hard to see any fine detail.

I've got all my dolls organised and accessible now and intend to do a new video about each type once I have the HD camera. You can see what I've recorded so far below, I have all my Doll collection videos in one playlist if you go and look at my channel. And please like the videos and subscribe if you have a youtube account.
