Following Monster High's great success, Mattel has come up with a similarly sized line of dolls called Ever After High. The characters are the children of fairy tale parents with their own painful, teenage high school issues
Quoting from the SDCC Unofficial Blog:
The premise of the show is similar to Monster High, where the kids of famous fairytale parents attend high school and face a dilemma. Instead of the notion of fitting in like in Monster High, the fairytale tweens are faced with the burden of either following or not following their famous parents footsteps. So are you a Royal or a Rebel (We’re suddenly having flashbacks of West Side Story)? Whichever side you favor, this should provide an interesting twist as most will associate anything fairytale related with a Disney storyline.
I think these dolls will capture the hearts of MH lovers everywhere.

Press Release 30 May 2013
During their marriage, Alexandra introduced Sidney to collecting dolls, an interest inspired by her love of design, color and whimsy. The couple acquired an impressive collection over several decades, which graced their Paul R. Williams-designed Hombly Hills estate. Bonhams will offer the entire collection of well over 450 dolls on June 24.
A variety of esteemed international dolls makers are represented, including fine examples from the Italian maker Lenci. Made in the early 20th century, Lenci dolls were constructed of felt and renowned for their unusually large size and beautiful craftsmanship. The company had many celebrity fans in its heyday, including Josephine Baker and Queen Elena of Savoy.
An extremely rare Lenci felt doll of Rudolph Valentino, as seen in his film The Son of the Sheik, is the auction's top lot (est. $6,000-8,000). Standing over two feet high, examples of the Valentino doll are scarce as it was discontinued only one year into production after the 1929 stock market crash. Lenci incarnations of famous fictional and historic figures will also be up for auction, including Madame de Pompadour (est. $800-1,200), Mozart (est. $1,200-1,600), Columbina (est. $1,800-2,000) and Madame Butterfly (est. $2,000-3,000).
Two Lenci felt "boudoir dolls" on offer are sure to raise eyebrows (est. $800-1,200 each), as are the "opium smoker" dolls from 1921, one of which comes with a pipe (est. $1000-1,500). Lenci dolls in traditional dress from Asia, Europe and the Middle East are also represented.
Other highly collectable makers on offer include R. John Wright dolls, Skookum dolls from the 1920s-1940s, Kewpie dolls, and German bisque-head dolls.
"We're so pleased to offer the exceptional doll collection of Alexandra and Sidney Sheldon," said Dana Hawkes, Bonhams Entertainment Memorabilia Consultant, and specialist in charge of the auction. "It's an excellent opportunity for a new generation of collectors."
Bonhams auction of the doll collection of Alexandra and Sidney Sheldon will take place on June 24 in Los Angeles. The auction will preview in Los Angeles from June 21-23.
A fully illustrated catalog is available at now www.bonhams.com/auctions/21322.

Sales are also held in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Carmel, New York and Connecticut in the USA; and Germany, France, Monaco, Hong Kong and Australia.

New tokidoki Plushies Now Available
I tried really hard to think of some way to write a hook connecting puppies and cupcakes, but they’re really not that similar, so I’m just going to roll with it. tokidoki have just released their Donutino and Donutina plushies along with the 22” Adios star cushion. The pups are $20 each and the giant pillow is $30 right here.

We had the pleasure of checking out QPop Shop’s tribute art show to Go Nagai in “Devil & Robots” over the weekend. Artists from all around the globe contributed pieces paying homage to characters from the series, such as Devilman, Mazinger Z, and Cutie Honey. The show drew a huge...
Thanks to TFLAMB we have some news and images of what appears to be now familiar E7 Black Operations vehicles that we have seen in the past Transformers movies. A couple images have been taken the flat black painted vehicles that represent the government forces in the move. One of which one has possibly been identified as one of the Hummers from the Revenge Of The Fallen. Not much to go on other than that right now. Should be more news and images before long sorting this out.
With my third baby just about to turn one year old I keep thinking about my pregnancies. Each one of them was so different, I loved the little person inside me and now I can’t imagine my life without each one of them. I have to say my last pregnancy I really enjoyed. I just... [Continue Reading]

Toys promoting gun violence? How bout toys promoting drugs? (TVFT does not condone drug use. They’re bad people.)
Patrick Wong shares with us a custom piece he had done for the "Dream in Plastic Custom Toy Show" (exhibiting at 177 Main Street, Beacon, New York), with this pudgy gang member being a custom 7" Dude figure, wielding a hockey stick entitled "Alastair of the Dominators"! This piece is available through the Dream in Plastic Custom Toy Show opening June 8, 2013 for US$250.
"The character Alastair hails from a street gang, the Dominators and they defend their turf with their signature style: orange monkey jackets, brown hats, and sneakers. The vinyl figure is partly inspired by Sol Yurick's 1965 novel "The Warriors" about New York City street gangs, retold from the original greek text "Anabasis" from the 4th century."
Along with the custom paint, the designer toy has sculpted additions and modified elements. "I began cutting the eyes out of my recent pieces to emphasize the emptiness inside the rotocast figures, maybe the emptiness of the stories that are so pervasive in our culture," said Patrick Wong. "I paint the inside black and when you're in front one of them, you lean in when you notice that the interior space is visible - it's like a black hole." ~added Patrick.
From Jaein Park comes a new Mad Rabbit, with this being made from a custom Qee 8". Wearing a red cape, this Pink Rabbit seems pretty angry …. check out more images via neon7.com.
"Sending some pics of my latest custom which I started at Kidrobot SF last week. A dunny-munny ha 4" munny head on 3"dunny body. Titled "The High Flyer", this lil guy is my take on the very recognizable paint schemes of WWII fighter planes."… mentioned JRAD (@ratedrad / www.facebook.com/ratedrad) of this particularly adorable custom piece, which reminds me so much of "chibi" / Super-Deformed characters with huge heads and smaller bodies, which I reckon works extremely well with this concept … now all it needs is a baby cannon somewhere, and this danger dude will be rocking the battlefield! I really like this dude, and you could explore more in this notion, methinks! LOL
I'm most excited to be able to give you an update on the latest and greatest on my new product Smart Do...
These are sturdy little toys that travel everywhere with our daughter - from kitchen table to bathtub to travel bag. She loves them. They seem quite durable, although we've only had them since Christmas so they haven't truly been put to the test. They're just what we needed. -- By C. Parry
Disney: Finding Nemo Figurines Boxed Set - This Nemo set is so much fun !! Our granddaughter loved it so much we bought the larger set of Nemo movie figurines to add to this set. They are colorful and fun to play with. The figurines are large enough that the kids are not tempted to put them in their mouth. The perfect size to take in a small backpack and play with in the car. The fish disconnect from the "rock" perches. -- By twosweet4
