Christmas Action Figures 2013

For Christmas, I was able to find the Kenya male dolls.  Like  http://blackdollcollecting.blogspot.com, I wanted them for Christmas.  I could not find them in Walmart or in any other store.  So, I went to the Kenya doll website hoping to find them.  I was able to purchase the dolls from the website.  I think TJ may come in two different shades.  The other figures are Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock and Idris Elba as Heimdall.

Remembering Nelson Mandela

We lost a Great Man today. He became South Africa's first black president. He dedicated his life for freedom for his people and fought against Apartheid. His legacy will live on.

November is Native American Heritage Month

Celebrate Native American Heritage Month

I have several Native American Dolls and Action Figures in my collection.

Kocoum from Pocahantas, Geronimo, Discount Doll, Chief Powhatan-Pochantas Father, Totsy, Totsy, Sitting Bull

When the movie Pochantas came out, many companies created Native American dolls.  There were several male dolls that were created by Mattel (Kocoum), Applause (Chief Powhatan) and Totsy.  The male dolls from Totsy came with  wives and children.

Sitting Bull and Geronimo were created in the action figure line.

Enjoying a Fall Day with the Bratz

The teenagers are hanging outside during lunch.

Last year, the Bratz girls would say hello and they were ignored.

The bratz girls grew over the summer and things have changed.

We are taller  and we love it.

After reading different blogs, I went  to Walmart, Target, Toys R Us, and The Disney Store.  I went looking for the different male dolls that was talked about on the blogs.   I could not find the African American male cheerleading doll,  Kenya's boyfriend or G.I. Joe Roadblock.   I did find a new Steven -swimming series and the Disney Store's Lu Shang dolls.
