2017 Barbie shoe packs


I saw these and grabbed them up.  I don't think Mattel has packaged shoes this way since the Fashion Avenue days.  I don't have any complaints, aside from not wanting another pair of those fringed sandals.  I understand there is another assortment of non-shoe accessories, but I've only seen these ones.

Saw the new 2017 Beauty and the Beast dolls.


I don't care for the Emma Watson head.  Like many celebrity dolls, it's not very attractive, but it's not as bad as some have been.  I think the clothes should also be a lot better, considering the retail prices.  The ballroom pair are $50, the prince set is $40, the singing doll is $30, the basic ballgown Belle is $20, and the peasant Belle is $15.


I do like the prince.  I think he's got a nice generic face, and could be redressed in something better.  His hair is molded on, but I don't mind so much, 18th century heads are a rarity.  I'd like to get one if they go on clearance.







The rest of the photos.  I believe each Belle head has a slightly different paint color selection.  The singing doll has pinker blush, and a mole.
