Today's post is not about the late 80s Who's The Boss spin-off, Living Dolls. Maybe I'll save that for another day. Today I'd like to talk to you all about one of my dorky hobbies. Celeb dolls! I don't know what it is, but I love celebrity dolls. Call me a big 'ol homo if you will...but I just love them!
I guess what started my thoughts on today's topic is that when I was in high school I had 2 Beverly Hills 90210 dolls. In particular these two:
Being the fool that I am I decided to give them away to my best friend. Years later I found out he doesn't even have them anymore because his mom gave them away! WTF. So now that I am an adult and am allowed to spend money on such foolish things I purchased a brand new Donna Martin doll on ebay for only $10! Woo hoo! Now I just need to replace my Shannen Doherty doll and I'm all good :)
So what other dolls do I have? I have 3 RuPaul dolls, some Spice Girls dolls, a few Britney Spears dolls (I don't even like her, but people bought them for me), a Christina Aguilera doll and a Hilary Duff doll!
OMG I think this qualifies is my gayest post ever! Are there any other celeb dolls that I should add to my collection. Maybe I'll track down those old Saved By The Bell dolls. I can recreate my own version of this...
I had to come back and write the reason why I started this post in the first place! For those of you who grew up in the 80s do you remember this doll???
As a kid I always wanted a Brooke Shields doll! I remember my grandfather would take me to Toys-R-Us w/ him (he had a grocery store and he would buy diapers there and resell them at his store) and he would let me get something small. I had a Ken doll so I would buy outfits for him (I know I know...what a fag) and I always remember that damn Brooke Shields doll sitting on the store shelf! I wonder how much they go for on ebay? I guess this is where my celeb doll fascination began.
Hey shouldn't the RBD and new Cher dolls be out by now?
