Well, this was a disappointing doll show for me. I had money to spend, and found almost nothing I really really wanted, and very little of that could I afford anyway.
|The glass case on the right is mine, complete with my sparkly skull with the flashing light up eyes.I made the tiny dolls and furniture inside the case.|
small vintage Asian doll from Doll-A-Day 247, and the Karito Kids Ling from Doll-A-Day 221.),a vintage snowsuit for 14" dolls, and a miniature fishing creel.(And my dolls don't even fish! They're all vegetarians!) Oh, and today's doll.We'll get to him in a minute.
I made a few purchases that I will end up selling, but those were the only things I bought for me. I bought these two girls to help me finance some dolls on my wish list.
|I already have several BFC Addisons, (On the right.), and this outfit.|
They're both just about mint.
I also bought this BFC Ink Yuko doll.
Anyway, I also really want BFC Gianna, so maybe I'll pay for her with Yuko...if I can part with her!
As for today's doll, he's Lil Penny!
|"Yo Tyra! I saved you a seat! Just park it right here next to me baby!"|
|I used to annoy my kids a lot by singing his song from the commercial. "I'm shootin' basketball..."|
He was the 'mini me' for basketball player Penny Hardaway...
|Big Penny and Lil Penny.Penny Hardaway played for the Orlando Magic at the time.His real name is Anfernee Hardaway.|
|Lil Penny looks more like Chris Rock than Penny Hardaway.|
|"What do you mean, 'butting in'?!"|
|...and yes, I own it.|
|"Hike!" These aren't his clothes. For some reason his previous owner has dressed him in what looks like football pants instead of basketball clothes.I wonder if a Barbie basketball uniform would fit him...|
|I think he's punting.|
Apparently Nike brought Lil Penny back earlier this year, to advertise their shoe, the Lil Penny Posite. I can no way see spending hundreds of dollars on a pair of shoes.
|His hand has a peg to snap on the basketball he originally came with.|
|"Nine inches of total pumpedness! Check me out ladies!"|
|"Look at these abs! Punch me in the stomach! Go ahead! Punch me! No, wait...never mind..."|
I always really wanted the 14" talking Lil Penny doll, but I'm still waiting to find a used one...that isn't being sold by someone who uses offensive words to ask their husband how much he is charging.
|"What do you mean DOLL?! I am an ACTION FIGURE!"|
|"I am OUTTA HERE until you learn some respect for me!"|
Tomorrow we'll take a look at another doll.
