China Girl Doll from Oz The Great and Powerful

Even before I saw Oz the Great and Powerful last night (which we thoroughly enjoyed!), she had caught my eye. I think I go a little gaga for ball joints. Now, now, I’m talking about the elbows, the wrists, the knees, and the ankles of this adorable little doll. The China Girl from the movie is my favorite part of the entire film. Not just for her look, which is classic and adorable, but for her personality too. I swear, some of her posturing and inflections are straight out of my little Birdie’s playbook.

In fact, I think I’m going to head out today and buy a China Girl Doll for myself. I’m a toy designer, it gives me leeway in these things! It looks like the Target Doll is selling out fast. And, since I won’t be splurging on the limited edition doll, which is selling for $629, I think $19.99 feels very affordable. Do you think I’ll be able to keep Birdie’s hands off of her? Yeah, I don’t think so either.

O, we loved her too (and Finley the monkey:)! I definitely enjoyed the movie as much as the kids. Did you know her voice was done by the same girl who was in the wheelchair at the beginning of the movie?

Finley was great comic relief! How old are your kiddos? I think it would be a little too scary for my 4 year old, but I can’t wait until she can watch it too.
And yes, the actress did a great job, didn’t she?

Oh! My husband brought the kids to see the movie while I was in NYC and he said I would have loved the porcelain doll. He thought they should produce it! Well I’m going to have to a make a trip to the closest Target across the border and hope they still have it there- and keep her to myself!

yay! I’m so glad you feel the same way I do!
If I have good luck, and you’re not finding one, let me know, maybe I can send one your way!

I found one! There was one other doll left at that store, I’ll see if I can get there this weekend and nab it! :)
