New Ever After High Dolls seen on Amazon :)


While I was browsing the new Monster High gang on Amazon tonight, I also noticed a bunch of Ever After High Dolls and characters I hadn't seen yet.
As you guys probably know, they just released two new characters (were there just two??)  Ever After High Kitty Cheshire Doll and Ever After High Duchess Swan Doll as well as three new lines: Spring Unsprung, Through the Woods and Mirror Beach.

So many dolls..so many DOLLS EVERYWHERE.
Now there also seems to be an Alice and Wonderland Theme as well as new "siblings" to previously released characters.
Like the new MH dolls, these ones are also being listed at very high prices as it seems they haven't been officially released.

*UPDATED:  10/9/15 with better photos and prices!*

Here are the new ones I came across tonight:




Bunny Blanc

I also noticed a new Spring Unspring doll:


Spring Unsprung Kitty Cheshire 
Daughter of the Cheshire Cat
Ever After High Spring Unsprung Kitty Chesire Doll :D
Still pricey on Amazon.


So what do you guys think?  Again, as I mentioned in my Monster High post, I really hope the real release (when they end up in stores) is gradual as I like so many of these and would love to add more to my collection.  I feel a bit overwhelmed just looking at all of the new ones that are already here. 

I currently only own 2 EAH dolls (reviews coming, but I may as well call they "throwbacks" as they are not new ones..haha) so I guess I have a long way to go.  :}

I wasn't even aware of this doll line until this summer as my girls are too little to be playing with these sort of dolls and they really weren't on my radar until I started reading doll blogs.  
To be honest, it wasn't until I started watching the Ever After High webisodes on Netflix that I really fell in love with the characters and the reference to all of the fairy tales I grew up with. 
I won't be purchasing any of these newbies for a while though, as I like to wait until they come down in price to around the $12-14 range.  Frugal Frances. :)

I would have to say though, my top 3 favorites are Bunny Blanc, Rosabelle Beauty and Ginger.  
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today and I hope you enjoyed the post. 
I am sooo happy that tomorrow is Friday.  It's been a wonderful, but looooong week. 
See you soon.

New Monster High Dolls seen on Amazon :)

Hey guys :)
I wanted to do a quick post regarding some new Monster High dolls I noticed tonight on Amazon.
I haven't seen them in stores yet, but it looks like they are already being sold (at double the price) so I just wanted to share which ones I happened to come across in my browsing. 
*UPDATED on 10/10/15 with better photos and current prices*

The first one that caught my eye as a newbie was this beauty:


Amanita Nightshade 
Currently on sale for $16.99
Monster High Amanita Nightshade Doll


According to Monster High Wiki, "she is a plant monster, born from the seed of the Corpse Flower, an extremely rare flower which only blooms every 1300 years, and is about to bloom near Monster High.."
When I read the rest of her bio, I thought she kind of sounds like a conceited jerk, lol...but she definitely is a pretty doll and I'm really interested in seeing her in person when she hits stores.

Next I saw a bunch in a new lined called "Freak Du Chic" including some new and old characters:

Freak Du Chic Gooliope Jellington
Daughter of The Blob (?)
She's an extra tall ghoul standing at 17inches!
Currently $19.99 Monster High Freak du Chic Gooliope Jellington Doll





Freak Du Chic Honey Swamp
Currently she's $14.99 here: Monster High Freak du Chic Honey Swamp Doll



Freak Du Chic Jinafire Long



 Freak Du Chic Toralei Strip
Currently she's $15.99 here: Monster High Freak du Chic Toralei Doll



Freak Du Chic Frankie Stein

And some from the new Monster High Boo York line (I'm in LOVE with these ones!):


Boo York Luna Motthews
Daughter of the Mothman (?)
Currently on sale for $17.95 here: Monster High Boo York, Boo York Gala Ghoulfriends Luna Mothews Doll LOVE HER!



Boo York Elle Eedee
Daughter of a Robot (apparently!)
Currently $11.99 here (normal price is $19.99):
Monster High Boo York, Boo York Gala Ghoulfriends Elle Eedee Doll

  Monster High Boo York, Boo York City Schemes Nefera de Nile Doll



Boo York Mousecedees King
Daughter of The Rat King
Currently here for $11.99 (on sale!)
  Monster High Boo York, Boo York Gala Ghoulfriends Mouscedes King Doll
A mouse?!  I love it.


Boo York 2 pack Deuce Gorgon and Cleo De Nile

Oh My Ra.  

I just can't keep up with all of these new Monster High releases! 
I can't get over how beautiful all of the new dolls are.  I am especially in love with the Boo York line (as I am a New Yorker and I love New York City!  ;)  

I am curious to know when they are all going to be released in stores and I am hoping it is gradual.  Since I am new to collecting and I really enjoy the Monster High line, I have so many still on my wish list from previous releases. 

I think my favorites from the Freak Du Chic line are Toralei and Jinafire.  I think those are my favorite versions of both of those characters and since I don't own any previous versions of them, they are definitely going up on my wishlist. 

As for the Boo York line, I think my favorites are Luna Motthews and the Cleo/Deuce 2 pack.  Although I really like all of them. 

What do you guys think?  Do you know any inside info? :}  Which ones will you be adding to your collection??

Flashback-A Summer Hike

Sorry for the un-seasonal photos, but I am still catching up from summer!  Eek!  I never thought I would get so behind in my blogging, but life just seems so busy around here and my photos have a mind of their own.  

Looking at this lush, late summer greenery is making me so excited for Spring (which is no where near coming to my neck of the woods) and the irony of what is actually going on outside now (blizzard) is just making me smile.  ;}



On this particular day, hubby and I were celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary.  Originally we were going to take a 2 day camping trip to a beach state park in Connecticut, but with our recent move to the Farm and getting our old house rent-ready, we had to cancel at the last minute.



Fortunately my mom was able to watch the girls so we could take a little day hike trip to one of our favorite places, the Huyck Preserve and Biological Station.



It was a gorgeous, warm, sunny day.  We had such a nice hike.  The last time I had been here, I was about 36 weeks pregnant with Little Button, so not too much hiking was taking place!




It's always so beautiful to reach the top of the falls and look down.  It's a perspective that you don't see often and I always like to take a few minutes to take it in.



The water was a bit low so there were big piles of smooth and mossy rocks everywhere. 



This is usually a stream right here.
At the end of the hike, we reached a calm, serene lake.
I did some jumps for joy :)


No kids!!!



We were the only people around.  So good. 




After two solid months of winter weather I am so longing for the blues and greens of summer. I hope you enjoyed this quick flashback to a late August outing.  Nothing too glamorous over here! ;)

Right now there is a HUGE winter storm going on my our area.   I'm pretty sure school will be canceled, so hoping for a bit of a sleep in for us all.  I am just so thankful to work from home.

I'm not going to lie..I was in my pajama's all day today and probably will be again tomorrow, too.
Stay warm!  xo
