I went online to view all the Animator dolls to pick one for myself so I could have it at my house to use to fit clothing patterns to... and fell in love with what I thought was the Mulan doll... sigh... no, it was a Paola Reina Liu doll in her summer dress... but at $80 bucks... I just don't know how I can hit the "buy it now" button and not regret spending that kind of money--- on a doll. But I want it... swoon. Anyway-- back to the Disney dolls. I was determined to get one... I planned on going to the Disney store and shell out the almost $30 bucks for one-- but decided to hit a thrift store on the way. Wouldn't you know it? I found one! What? Yep. I introduce you to Merida. Her original price was $7.99 and it was half off day. When I got to the register the gal said, "That's to much for this doll." And said, "How about $2.00?" Well, of course I said, "Ok." I ended up bringing her home for $1.00-- it was half off day after all. *wink*
I love my little red headed sassy looking girl... albeit she is naked... it doesn't seem to bother her one bit. This past weekend I brought home a second Animator doll. Rapunzel. Rapunzel was a $2.00 find and came with her outfit and her pet lizard. She looks a little bit leery of Merida.... I'm sure they'll be fast friends soon.
I have a huge tote bag of American girl doll clothing... and of course none of it fits the smaller 15" Animator dolls.... as you can see in the photo before. The American girl doll clothing is to big and baggy. The only thing that fit were the glasses... so for now, Elsa wears glasses.
