I’ve recently discovered the joys of Toys Far Too Expensive For Anyone with Children to Afford. I wandered into the field in the name of research and came out with a very long wish list:
I got lost in two types of fancy dolls:
1) Ball-jointed dolls (like these). These are hundreds of dollars each and have very delicate, fully-moveable features. They’re produced in limited runs, and you can paint them, give them wigs, switch out their eyes, and buy outfits for them. They’re like Super Designer Barbies.
2) One-of-a-kind art dolls. Every artist has a different style. Accordingly, they’re all different prices, sizes, materials, subjects, and ranges of motion.
I was thinking it’d be fun to support independent artists and have bizarre art dolls throughout the house in cloches. You know, become “that lady.”
Then I remembered: I several friends with daughters who, as they get older, will definitely jack and break them.
I don’t even have children and I know my stuff’s on the verge of being shattered.
Sigh. I can always dream.
