Yesterday was a very big mail day ....
First some Takara stock clothes arrived - I've been buying some of the older stock outfits for my girls as the quality was really good back then! (and I must apologise for the low quality of these photos, my digital camera died and I'm using the phone camera now.)
My girls got a very nearly complete set of the stock for "I Love You It's True" (yep, Takara does do some odd names!) Lots of pretty items in shades of blue plus sandals, funny pink socks and pretty undies (we like pretty undies!). Also, most of the red evening outfit from "Love Mission" - evening dress, bustier, shawl and red shoes.
While Audrey and Imogen were trying on the new outfits another parcel arrived!
|Audrey: "Can you do my dress up Imi? I can't reach."|
Audrey: "Uh, now I can't bend, quick Imi, do up my shoe then we'll help Meerkat with the new parcel."
Meerkat: "I don't think this is yet more clothes ... it looks like a box here."
Imogen: "What, another sister! Nah, that's quite small."
Imogen: "Ooooo nice cheese."
Audrey: "Hmmm, a shopping trolley, I guess that'll be useful for grocery shopping! Nice red apple though."
Meerkat: "Bread - and it smells so good."
From inside the box, very muffled: "Hello there - can anyone hear me ... Hello ..."
Some time later ...
Julia: "I guess this is why our Mummy Giant bought the extra crochet dress, wondered why she bought 4 sets when there were 3 of us."
Hilda: "Yes - there are matching bloomers too ..."
Meerkat - very quietly: "Lah dee dah - this baguette is going to be yummy with my new tapenade ..."
Zucchini Flower: "She has a nice dress already - but I think she likes pink things."
Julia (in the middle): "Looks like she's been in that box for Ages and Ages."
Annabella, still in the box: "A whole 9 years girls - I'm a 2005 release. And I really want to be released ... please hurry!"
|Zucchini: "Annabella, you are like me - you've 2tone hair too and pretty coloured eyes like me."|
Meanwhile, Julia and Hilda have found Annabella's pet / backpack ...
Julia: "Is it a rabbit or a kangaroo?"
Hilda: "hmmm, very confusing, the ears could be either and she has a pouch ... but no tail at all!! We'll have to ask Auntie Bunny, she'll know."
(ed: Bunny is a Neo Blythe "Welcome Winter" and very knowledgeable about all the different breeds of rabbits)
And we'll leave this post with a portrait of Annabella. She is a Takara Petite "Tatianna Black" released in November 2005, so she has been exactly 9yrs in her packaging.
Her stock dress and bonnet are really pretty, as is her pet / backpack BunnyRoo.
She has lovely violet coloured eyes and 2tone blond hair that curls.
