Madame Alexander McDonald's Collection

It took a bit of web surfing and shopping before I was able to complete this set. Unfortunately I'm missing Toto and Oz. I have a feeling that unless I find them at a tag sale, I'm going to be paying dearly to complete this collection. I started the collection with the Guard and Cowardly Lion that I got with Happy Meals. The rest I bought off of E-bay and Amazon. It actually turned out cheaper than making the 12 mile trip to our closest McDonalds and buying the meals.

I should stick to doing just one thing at a time. Writing about the collection brought me back to E-bay. I just purchased Toto, The Winged Monkey, and Kitty Doll to add to the collection. It looks like I'm going to be ordering more stands.

Here's the collection as it stands now(no pun intended) in their 5-1/2" glory! I was thrilled to find doll stands to fit them.

Thank you for stopping by. I've collected a couple of Liv dolls and accessories that I'll post in the next few days. Wait til you see what fun I've been having!
Enjoy and have a blessed day!

Christopher Robin N Friends

Another can't live without!

When I first saw Christopher Robin at the Madame Alexander Museum during my visit, I fell in love with him. He looks just like my oldest grandson Gabe. My budget wouldn't handle him that day as I was buying other dolls as gifts. I was telling a friend about him today and decided to do a search on e-bay. What a find!  I couldn't pass it up. He is currently selling at the Madame Alexander Museum store for $139.99. I got this little one for $39.99 plus shipping.

Aren't they beautiful!  Gabe - Christopher Robin, just in case you couldn't tell.

I can't wait for the dolls to arrive! Hubby is going to have to get my display case out of storage, or I'm going to be forced to pack up my holiday dishes and put my dolls on display there. Decisions, decisions.

Thanks for stopping in.
Stay safe! God Bless
