It’s just a week to the show! Despite my desire to do nothing but sit at the table and work, I am taking the day off to visit my mother, taking a nice lunch and anticipating a visit from the baby this afternoon.
On the work front I am amazed to say I have 16 new dolls. When I say 16 I really mean 16 new ranges. There’s no doubt about it, having limited time to work causes pent-up creativity, leading to doll explosions.
I have no photos because none are dressed yet but last night I did manage to assemble five flexible children under an inch high. They will actually fit in the Bespaq baby house, though they look a bit huge. This maybe means I am close to flexible 144th scale figures. Imagine that! Poseable 144th scale dolls. Crikey.
Meanwhile in existence a whole range of small 48th scale people that fit Jane Harrop’s houses. I shall dress them to fit in the three houses she does, so Irish rural, French commercial and 1920s anything.
There’s a new 12th scale 4 year old. Three new 24th scale ornaments, a 24th scale small flexible witch and an entire group of 2inch collectible ‘old’ dolls based on all our toys in the 50s and 60s.
