We’ve spent the week getting ready for my son’s graduation party with his friends this week so there was no time to play with dolls 🙁
As perhaps you could tell, I did some online shopping though 🙂
Suyin arrived yesterday. The outfit I ordered did not. Another one arrived in its place. I chatted with Ross at Target online (he was awesome) letting him know so they could avoid continuing to send out the wrong product if it was a shelving issue. Now, we all know about Target shipping out the wrong OG item all the time. He very diplomatically informed me it was a warehouse issue and there was no need for me to return the outfit I did receive and he was putting in a request to send the one I had wanted (& hoped it would be correct this time). The “free” outfit I got was not one I have either.
Everything is it’s box but we can still see some fun stuff.
Suyin arrived in a loose fit but sealed plastic covering with an open store-type box (as opposed to the windowless boxes frequently used on shipped items).
Happy to be out of the Target box, Suyin gives us a wink. (She regularly gives winks but maybe her eye will loosen up).
Debagged, she looks like any other OG doll you’d see in the store. Her skirt is fine. I didn’t realize it was hung up until I was done with photos (oops).
Tilting the camera, we see the pretty little blue shoes.
Suyin has such a lovely face.
I stopped at Wally World on the way home to see if they had anything new. They had ONE TRIKE so, naturally, I grabbed it. The check out clerk was impressed and said, “I hope she loves it!” It’s so cute to me when they assume a child will end up with my doll stuff. I just thanked her as she was ringing the little bell and playing with the doors. Yes, the bell really rings. This is one I can’t wait to unbox. (I’ll likely be setting up my summer street scene around the winter holidays though so no one should hold their breath!).
This is the outfit I received. I think it will look cute on Suyin.
This is the outfit I ordered. Hopefully, take two will be correct but if not, I’ll return it (as I had intended to do before the other one was free) if it isn’t something else new (or free) and keep my eyes open at the local store.
There was very little else at this Wal-Mart but they did have the living room set. I had hoped to catch some swimsuits (I never did find the last release outfits) and see the boy dolls. Oh, well.
Excitingly, the Lori dolls have left the end cap at this Target and are now in the isle with the other Our Generation dolls. There are spaces for the new products. The Lori items I had been able to order online are in a ship on the 10th status so we’ll see what happens there. I’ll try to remain optimistic.
Suyin will get a real write up in the future but I thought you all might like to say hello too. She’s pretty cool. We hung out and washed MASH last night. She loves Nurse Kellye too.
