Oldie but much loved goodie.

Post by Annette » Wed Jan 09, 2019 8:24 pm

Haven’t shared my sweet, silicone baby, Kayla in a while. She’s been relegated to the back of the bassinet, and needs a cuddle to make up for that. :)
So I thought I’d share some photos of this sweetie.
She was gifted to me by a very dear and special friend, who used to be a member here, but is now only on Facebook, and deeply involved in animal rescue. She has a heart of gold and has helped save so many dogs and pups and found them all homes. She’s a hero of mine. :)

Would love to see some of your oldie but goodies, whatever the medium. :)

Anyway, here’s Kayla...

:heart: I love her, Annette! She is gorgeous. I don't remember who her artist is, but she is a treasure. My oldest dolls are my Melissa Helland and some of my OOAKs. Here are a few pics:


My beloved Melissa Helland

I also love my Eva Wakolbinger OOAKs. They are from the very early 2000's. Their sweet faces always make me laugh.

Linchen Himstedt is one of my oldies and forever dolls, got her back in 2006 😊 She is needing to be changed out of her Christmas attire when I have a moment..

Ladies, I am drooling seeing all your beautiful babies. Kaylah is by Wendy Dickinson, I remember cause I love her to Annette, she is such a chubby whubba sweetheart to me.

Dion, your Eva baby is such a beauty, and your Walkolbingers are precious.

Gina I love Himstedt’s, there hasn’t been one I haven’t wanted, but I don’t have any, and now I have no room sadly.

Oh my, that little face is so adorable. I love her chubby little cheeks. I can see why she is a favorite. She looks like the perfect cuddle baby.

Yes! Your memory is better than mine!! :lol: I just couldn’t think. :oops:

I love seeing the older babies. Remember when OOAKS were the big thing? Are there any artists still making them? Seems that silicones have taken over. As much as I love them, it’s getting so that they’re way out of a lot of people’s budgets. :( I’d like to see more cloth body silicones. But that’s just my preference. Not that I can afford the new ones anyway. :roll:
I just keep my eyes open for the older sili’s.....the firmer Dragon Skin ones. I know that, eventually, one that I’ve dreamed of, will come on the secondary market and I may be able to afford it. :)

Well, keep the photos coming! I know there are a lot more “Oldies” out there. :wink: Dolls, not ladies (well, those too. :wink: ). :lol:
Hugs Annette

I think most of us have regretted selling some of our babies. I could kick myself for selling 4 of mine. You almost never see them anymore, so not quite so likely to get them again, but I keep looking!!

:foryou: Hugs, Dion
