Amazing Doll Sized Pinatas By Friendly Frog's Pinatas!

My friend Teanna is a Pinata Artist who runs a great business through her Facebook fan page called Friendly Frog's Pinata's
Her work is so much fun, part of the reason why this busy mom started creating pinata's in the first place.
Teanna makes customer requests reality and parties so personal. I love this Red Bird, Angry Bird pinata.
Teanna got started making pinata's 2 years ago. Her son wanted a pinata for his 8th birthday and Teanna didn't have the funds to buy a commercial one, so she made her first Angry Bird Pinata. Then when her daughter wanted one for her birthday a month later, she made another, and another and another and well you get the idea...

" One of the neighbor kids saw me making it and told her mom. She called me to see if I could make them one and it took off them there."

 Doll sized Pinata's range from $10-$15 plus shipping. Regular sizes ones range from $30 and up, plus shipping. Teanna made me this pinata as a doll swap in one of my groups. I just love it! Click here to read the post.

Teanna's Motto is "I can make anything"

Old 6 Inch American Girl Dolls Vs New

Madelon and I were talking recently about the original 6 inch American Girl Dolls and she kindly shared some photos with me of her 6 inch dolls.
The original 6 inch dolls had eyes that were glass. Today's dolls eyes have been painted on just like a Barbie Doll's
I am curious what everyone thinks about the differences in the dolls features. I would love to hear your comments!
In this photo you can see that the hair is much different in style and color. I wonder if the original dolls hair is rooted or a wig?
Here they are from behind. The newer doll seems to have more highlights to her hair.
I would love to know what you think, are the Original ones better? Do you like the way the new dolls look?
