ITBE Dolls: Are they here to stay or in the way?

The ITBE (Integrity Toys Basic Editions) dolls made their debut in the spring of 2009, this is integrity first affordable doll line for collectors who may not want to spend so much on the other very pricy girls that integrity has to offer! In each collection there is always a group of 5 or 6 girls who are ready to have their picture taken! So for the 2010 integrity line the 2nd waves of the ITBE dolls theme is the Rome edition with 5 new friends but, are the ITBE girls here to stay or in the way!

To be honesty with you; I am not a fan of the ITBE line! This is very funny because I’m always trying to make room for anything new that is coming out! I took a photo of the first line back in February of 2009. At first I said to myself: OMG, I have to have these dolls” but as time went by I found nothing special about the IT girls!

Here are my reasons for not totally falling in love with these dolls!

1. After collecting The Dynamites girls, Fashion Royalty and now the ever so popular Barbie Fashionista; having a fully articulate doll is the in thing now! Yes, I still have some Barbie’s and other dolls that can not move to save my life but, I am looking for replacement bodies for almost all of them!

2. I’m not buying a doll for $25 dollars that does not come with a bag or an extra outfit and a pair of shoes! We all know that Barbie Basics are going for $19.99 but at least they have accessories packs!

3. There is no hype about these girls at all! Sure you may find a few pictures here and there but come on, do you see anybody making threads about them on dolly forums!

To any ITBE fans out there I’m not a totally bitch so please don’t leave mean comments on my blog! I just don’t find anybody making a fuss about these girls! When I went to the doll show in April I happen to see them in person again and did not bring even one girl home! I don’t totally dislike them but the only thing going is their clothes! Maybe one day I’ll give up and just buy one for the hell of it and see where my feelings go from there!



  1. Thank you for this honest review. You love Barbie as well as the other girls out there so I trust you. I keep trying to find good info about these girls but no dice. I keep looking at them going, "We'll, I guess that's a nice dress..."

  2. Anytime Dani

    With all my talking I just think the dolls are wack!

Dolls Do It Better: A Aaliyah tribute Vs Marisa

This is a special tribute to R&B singer and dancer Aaliyah, who died in a plane crash on August 25, 2001. Aaliyah had a few hits that include “Age Ain't Nothing But a Number”, “One in a Million” and “Rock the Boat”. Aaliyah’s styles was very Tomboy but still very girly at the same time. This picture is very cool and down to earth, that was the kind of person Aaliyah was.
Marisa is totally girly here and is not afaird to give it her all!What Marisa is wearing: Unknown top and 2008 Fashion Fever pants.

I'M COMING BACK.....................

I did not forget about any of you. I actually wrote a post back in July, but many things have happened that is completely out of my control. I found a job back in April and up until right now I've been working my butt off like crazy for six days a week and taking care of my mother. Let me just say, I think God for my job each day, but this has been the worst summer in my entire life. I'm hoping to get my six turn into five. My health and house are such a mess. The children are always crying out for me. I need to get my life back in check! Until then, please stay bless and cool. I'm praying for the fall to come fast!

Monster High: Cleo De Nile and Deuce Gorgon & What I think about the Monster Dolls

Here I am again with more photos of my new obsession Monster High dolls Cleo and Deuce. Being a person who was never into big headed dolls like Blythe (which are very cute) the Bratz, My Scene (even though I have a few), Liv dolls and Moxie girls this is really new for me! I think we all knew about these dolls for over a month now and I never thought I would become such a big fan. Mattel really has a hit on there hands and they don't need to mess this one up, HINT HINT FASHION FEVER! As I said on Monday's post you can watch Monster High on YouTube and there will be novels coming soon which I really can not wait for and maybe even a show on TV! This is really something to look forward to
