The first dolls shown this year were the Tulabelle girls. The storyline for this doll is that she is Poppy Parker's granddaughter. She is a fashion blogger! These dolls are 16 inches tall. The clothing for this line is phenomenal. Each doll retails for $140, will be released in late summer 2014, and were in an edition size of 300.
This season Tulabelle is taking off to Europe for Paris Fashion Week.

Last year I got sucked into this line. I purchased two dolls - both below retail. If these dolls go on sale, I'm sure I will be in trouble. I don't have a lot of space for bigger dolls and have limited myself to only a handful. If 16" was the focus of my collection, I would've purchased all four dolls. I love the story line and the design of the collection. Excellent job IT!
Next we got "The Girl from I.N.T.E.G.R.I.T.Y. "- I hope IT has a contest for filling out this acronym. I think it would be great fun! I may even start a thread on this on the W Club.
Let's start with the actual Poppy dolls. There were three Poppy Parker dolls plus one Chip. All four dolls retail for $120. The girls will be released in and edition size of 800, whereas there will be 100 less of Chip.

I loved how IT made the story lines connect this time around. The fourth doll was Spy-A-Go-Go and the ensemble features the coat that was later given to Tulabelle!
JEM fans got four new dolls. As I have mentioned before, the JEM series came along after I graduated from college and had started my "grown up life". I was too busy dating, clubbing, finding work, moving, etc. to get involved with JEM. I know the followers are ecstatic, but I miss this one completely. (Thank goodness for my budget!) They are all due to be released in June.
Three of the dolls will be released in an edition size of 500. Left: Video Montgomery ($119), Middle: Danse Dvorak gift set ($125 with two outfits), Right: Regine Cesaire ($119)
4 Tulabelle Dolls - $560
8 Poppy Parker Dolls - $960
4 Jem Dolls - $490
How much did I, personally, spend: $0. However, I'm not sure how I'm going to fare on resisting the silver-haired Poppy head!
