Although I have said some harsh things about Mattel's distribution and marketing strategy for the So In Style dolls, I like the face mold. Thanks to a sale at Family Dollar that knocked 50% off every toy priced $10 and up, Kara and Trichelle became my last two doll purchases of 2012.
Once I got them out of their boxes, I saw that in truth, they were only worth $5 a piece because they have unbend-able hard plastic legs. Fortunately I had some click knee bodies that were good complexion matches. Once the body transplants were complete, Kara and Trichelle spent the afternoon in the natural hair salon getting all the tacky tracks and glue removed from their heads. Now they are ready to ring in the New Year!
Kara is on her way to a formal ball.
We discovered that she can wear many different hair colors but settled on these blonde-streaked locks.
Trichelle is headed for the club where she plans to dance the night away.
She asked for long braids that would flow with her dress.
Grace was happy to see her homegirls from Chicago...
