A Girl For All Time: Your Modern Girl Kickstarter Campaign

  In case some of you haven't heard, A Girl For All Time is in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign to finance a couple of new dolls. The new line is called "Your Modern Girl", and includes Maya,a member of the Marchmont family, like the previous dolls made by the company...

...and Maya's friend, Nisha. Nisha is the first doll produced by A Girl For All Time who is not a member of the Marchmont family.

  Maya looks to be made from the Matilda head sculpt,and is practically identical except for her hair style.

Nisha seems to be made from the Lydia sculpt, but doesn't resemble Lydia nearly as much as Maya resembles Matilda, due to her darker skin tone and brown eyes.

...And Lydia's.
There will be a whole line of clothes and accessories made available to go along with the new line. You can check out the Kickstarter campaign HERE.The campaign offers a few goodies in exchange for your pledge, which add up as the amount of your pledge goes up.
  Some of you will remember that I bought a Clementine doll from A Girl For All Time a while back. (You can read her review HERE.)

 I love Clementine and would love to eventually add other dolls from the line to my collection. I think they are beautiful play dolls, made from a wonderful smooth vinyl, and their clothes feature quality fabrics and construction.

 I also like the fact that the dolls have a backstory. There is a book to accompany each doll, telling her story. The books have gorgeous colour covers,and black and white illustrations.
  For those of you interested in the process that takes a doll from idea to design to completion, there are pictures and details on Maya and Nisha's creation on the Kickstarter page. The campaign ends on April 16th, so you have almost 3 weeks if you're interested in taking part. For those of you who aren't familiar with Kickstarter, if the goal of the fundraiser isn't met the dolls will not be produced, at least not at this time. So if you've fallen in love with the photos of Maya and/or Nisha, you'd better hop on it and pledge!
