Santa's Gifts

This Christmas I received and bought some dolls and action figures. The stores lacked action figures and I ran out of time to order from the internet.  I will always have next year.

I was able to get the Disney Collectible Princess Tiana and Prince  Naveen.  I saw that the Disney store was offering different sets each week.  I had gone in during the 3rd week and had missed Tiana and Naveen since they were out the first week.  I found it on ebay for the same cost that the Disney store had it.  

I also got Groot- since he is played by Vin Diesel,  Gamora played by Zoe Saldana.  I am still debating about the 12" Gamora because of the cost.  I was able to finally get Dr. J from Shindana.  He was my favorite basketball player for the low bid of $49.00.   

This figure includes a part of the body to make a bigger Groot. There is a total of six characters.

So in style dolls

Daren was part of the welcoming committee for the new Day 2 Nite Trichelle and Grace.
He was wondering what happened to the dolls. Their faces are different. Their eyes are wider. They seem to be much younger looking.
