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.
