Christina Articulates: Top Non-Monster High Dolls of 2013!

Well, my Monster High favourites list got kind of out of control, so I decided to make a second post with my favourite dolls from other lines! I really branched out from Monster High more than I have in the past, and I think it's safe to say that I'm a doll collector now, and no longer just a Monster High collector!

This list is much shorter than my Monster High list, but I love the dolls on it just as much. Let's get to it!

Christina Articulates: Top Monster High Dolls of 2013!

It's that time of year when everything is lists, and I'm going to go right along with that trend! I thought I'd make a quick list of my favourite dolls that were released this past year, but it turned out to not be that quick. I had a lot of favourites!

I couldn't just include Monster High dolls, because a few others really stole my heart this year, so I'm going to break it up a little. I put together a list of my favourite Monster High dolls, which will be featured in this post, and I'm also going to do a second post featuring my favourite dolls from other lines. Even still, it was a hard task to narrow everything down! So...I didn't. I set out to make a Top 10 list and just couldn't force myself to leave some dolls out. Instead, I've got a list of my 20 favourite Monster High dolls of the year, and even that was a challenge! I'm not going to go into detail on all 20 dolls, but I did take pictures of everything, which was quite an endeavour!

As for what was considered eligible, I'm only including dolls that were officially scheduled to be released in 2013, not everything that hits shelves in 2013. That means I'll be including Scaris which hit shelves at the end of 2012, and not including Frights, Camera, Action which hit shelves at the end of 2013. It pains me to leave the gorgeous Miss Honey Swamp off this list, but it just means that the 2014 list is already off to a promising start!

So who made the list? Click through to find out! (Beware, this is a very photo heavy post!)

Who's afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? Ever After High: Cerise Hood

For someone who wasn't sure how she felt about Ever After High, I'm sure giving a lot of the dolls a try! Next up, I picked up Cerise Hood, the daughter of Red Riding Hood (and the Big Bad Wolf, but shhh, that's a secret!) I liked her a lot in pictures, and once I got my hands on her...well, I took nearly 100 pictures of her!

I tried something new with some of the pictures as well since I finally got my tabletop lightbox situation, so let me know what you think!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, fellow doll lovers! I hope everyone found something they'd been wanting waiting for them under the tree. I know I did!

I'll definitely be reviewing Clawdia, and maybe the others too if anyone is interested. I also picked up Scaremester Jinafire and Cerise Hood from Ever After High just before Christmas, and I'm working on reviews of those as well! Lots of good stuff coming up soon on the blog, AND I got some gift cards too, so there may be even more! Very merry doll-mas to me!

Hope everyone is having a great day with their friends and families! What did you find under the tree this year?

Once Upon a Zombie: Rapunzel

I've got one more Once Upon a Zombie doll to review for now, and that's Rapunzel! She was one of the ones I was most drawn to, thanks to her lovely hair colour and the purple of her dress. Once I got her out of the box, I was not disappointed!

Once Upon a Zombie: Sleeping Beauty

As soon as I reviewed Belle from the Once Upon a Zombie line, I knew that she wouldn't be the last zombie to swarm my home. Just a few days ago I got a big box from ThinkGeek containing Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel, and today we're going to look at Sleeping Beauty!

Uh oh...I'm outnumbered...

Chainsaw Abbey!

A few days ago, I posted my review of Art Class today, and today, it's Abbey's turn! I knew I needed this doll as soon as I saw that she comes with a chainsaw, because that's basically the coolest thing ever. 

She has more going for her than just a chainsaw though, so let's dig in! There's not as many words as usual in this post because I feel like Abbey's face kind of does most of the talking for me. She's just so gorgeous, I didn't know what else to say!

Art Class: Skelita Calaveras!

Just the other day, I posted on my Tumblr, I asked which of the two Art Class ghouls I have should be reviewed first, Abbey or Skelita. 

And the votes were unanimous! Everyone wanted to see more of Skelita, and that's a good pick since this is, after all, only her second doll! Let's jump right in and get a closer look at this beauty, because she IS a beauty!
