Spring Photo Shoot

For Easter I dressed up all my dolls in nice, springy outfits and took them outside for a photo shoot. I did a group picture, but also single pictures of each doll. I am going to use these as profile pictures because the place where I used to take profile pictures no longer exists.

Alishdollish

Group picture!

This was really fun to take. I had to arrange all fifteen dolls. (Count them!) Most of the dolls are positioned well. A couple of them I don’t like so much, such as Gabi, Jenny, and Faith. Overall though, I really like this picture.

I am going to try to use it as a header image. I don’t know how well that will work…

Review My Twin Blooming Flower Doll And Girl Dress

For Easter I got the My Twin Blooming Flower Dress and girl dress plus some shoes. I am going to review those things in this post. I put the dress on to model it, and it was a lot of fun, even though I am going to have to take it off here in a minute. I decided not to wear it for Easter, but it is a nice dress, and I am going to wear it a lot. DSCN7993[1] Here is Lea in the whole outfit. She is also wearing a pink pearl bracelet and pink hair clip.  The dress is made of white satiny cloth, with a pink sash made of the same material. DSCN7994[1]       The front has embroidered hearts and stems, like a garden. The skirt is nicely gathered, there is a lot of cloth. DSCN7995[1]   The sleeves are puffy, with a band. DSCN7998[1]   The sash doesn’t go all the way to the back, but a bow of the same cloth is sewn onto the back. DSCN7999[1]   The dress opens all the way to the skirt, but it was extremely hard to get on. It took me awhile. Girls the age the products are directed at would not be able to get the dress on without help. DSCN8004[1]     The dress has a slip, and mesh on top of that. It is sewn in place but to have it as a slip might be nice.DSCN8006[1]   Lea can sit well in the dress.DSCN8000[1]    The shoes are pink leather like material with a pink ribbon bow on each shoe. They are slip on shoes, very easy to get on, but they stay on. DSCN8002[1]   The sole is white, with a bit of heal. DSCN8007[1]  Here is me in my dress and lea in hers. Nether the dress nor sash is the same cloth or color. The girls dress isn’t shiny, but it will hold up better. DSCN8008[1]    The heart garden is the same, still embroidered. DSCN8010[1]     In the girls dress the sash goes all the way around and ties.

All of the things were less than 20$ all together, a great deal for the quality of the items. They are well made, and I am glad I got them.

Review My Twin Cook Set And Comparison

For Easter my parents gave me the My Twin cook set, which they got on sale when My Twin went out of business. I also have a kitchen set from the dollar store which I am going to compare it with. First the Dollar store set. DSCN7947[1]  Here is the whole set. It is fully made of plastic. DSCN7948[1]    The pan is red on the outside, and black on the inside. DSCN7949[1]    The utensils include a spaghetti strainer, a spaghetti spoon, and a spatula. The handles are molded red plastic.

Now for the My twin set. DSCN7950[1]     The set comes in this box.DSCN7951[1]  This is the entire set. Two pots, a pan, and some utensils. A funny story about the utensils, The pots and pans were in the box with Styrofoam in between them, and I didn’t see the utensils. It wasn’t until I was looking at my catalog that I saw the there should have been utensils. I looked, and there they were!DSCN7952[1]   This pan has blue enamel on the outside, and white on the inside with a metal rim. The handle is wood. DSCN7953[1]   The pots have handles on either side, and on the lid. The lid is blue enamel with a metal rim, and a handle on the top. The lids just sit on the pots, but they fit well.DSCN7954[1]      There are three utensils, each has a folded piece of wire glued on to the end as a handle.

And here is the comparison.DSCN7955[1]  The dollar store pan is deeper, but the My Twin one is well made. They both are the right size. DSCN7956[1]     On this one I would say that the dollar store one is better. It looks more realistic, and would actually be able to strain spaghetti. (If it was doll sized.) DSCN7957[1]  The spatula parts look the same, but the handle is different. The angle of the handle is different on each. DSCN7958[1]   And then we have a ladle, and a spaghetti spoon, both good things for making spaghetti. DSCN7959[1]  With both set together you would be able to make spaghetti, sauce, meatballs, and garlic bread.

 

Both sets are nice, even better together. They are a great addition to my doll kitchen, especially if they want to make spaghetti.
