Well to be honest I got the Christmas wish book in the middle of August, I love getting this book, I love this time of year and highlighting and dog eared pages of the wish book are a time honored tradition on my side of the family my sister Bre-Anne got hers first three days before me in Montreal where she lives and here I am seeing the photos from the catalog over Skype. So I could find out what my Niece Trinity wanted for her birthday in December.
Sears now has a line of 18 inch dolls that look much better then the line they had this time last year though two of the "new" dolls look like they have been repackaged and dressed from last year.
These new NEWBERRY dolls are Katie, Allie, Lily, Emma, Brooklyn and Noelle.
They have the price point of $29.99 and are stylishly dressed. To be honest with you I like the look of them better then the Our Generation ones Zellers in Canada (Target in the USA) sell. These dolls remind me of the Journey Girl dolls. Especially Emma who really looks like Meredeth I am not actually convinced they are not the same doll.
The line sears carries also offers the "Clip on Chair" which looks very much like the sweet treat chair fir $29.99 and their own version of the hair styling chair also $29.99. The best deal and the item my niece is getting for her birthday is the "Mini Scooter" that looks very similar to the AG one, as it is only $19.99 and Sears offers a ship a gift option I ordered it and had it shipped to my sister in Montreal to avoid the delay or the disappointment of them being sold out.
and the Newberry Scooter.
The most beautiful item in their collection has to be the Newberry Horse and Sleigh, for $129.00 you get the holiday sleigh complete with with sliver sleigh bells, that any girl would love and the most beautiful black horse the brush and a blanket for the horse are included. I am so kicking myself for not buying the one from Toys R Us that was white and on sale for only $49.99 when I was in Palm Springs. If I had room I would have loved to have this set.
I really like that there is a line of affordable 18 inch dolls in Canada, however having both American Girl Dolls and a Maplelea Doll I know that there is no way that the quality of the dolls hair would be comparable but I do think this would make a very nice starter 18 inch doll. To order these dolls you can shop on line at www.sears.ca or you can call 1-800-267-3277. You can find the dolls on pages 740 and 741 in the 2011 Christmas Wish Book from Sears.
