I noticed that the adorable Madame Alexander 18" dolls from Costco are on the website:
Be sure to click the links below each doll to see them closer and get more details. These dolls have the same face mold as the "My Life As" dolls from Walmart before their face mold change this year. They also do NOT have those (in my opinion) annoying bendable arms and legs, so they'll be a lot sturdier and easier to play with.
If you have a Costco in your area, you might want to check there first, because these dolls are on sale for $19.99 at my local Costco, but they cost $24.99 online (plus $7.99 shipping).
I also noticed that Costco.com has a line of Disney Princess and Me dolls available for a really great price. For $38.99 (plus $8.99 shipping), you get a doll in her traditional outfit, plus an extra outfit and (in some cases) accessories. These haven't made an appearance at my local store yet, but I wish they would. ;)
Here are the four dolls:
Rapunzel with an extra Ballet Oufit
(Interestingly enough, on Costo.com it lists this as Rapunzel with an "Ice Skating Outfit". ;)
Ariel and Sleepover Accessories
Cinderella and Tea Party Accessories
Belle and Picnic Accessories
My favorites are Cinderella and Belle because of the fun accessories included with them. :) I have not seen these sets in person, so I don't know about the quality or anything. I have had both a DP&M Belle and a DP&M Rapunzel in the past, though, and thought the dolls were sweet. Their hair isn't the greatest quality (I would DEFINITELY recommend braiding Rapunzel's hair right away!), but with careful maintenance should do okay. ;) Their faces are really sweet, too. They don't fit AG clothing, but they can share clothing with BFC Ink dolls. You can see my earlier review of the DP&M Rapunzel doll HERE.
I hope this helps some of you with your Christmas lists. ;) Happy Shopping!
