FAD Dolls

Sababa Toys Fashion Attitude FAD Dolls

Sababa Toys, a subsidary of Grand Toys International, was a Manhattan-based merchandising company specialising in licensed products. They released a series of nine FAD - Fashion Attitude Dolls in 2001. The dolls stood nine inches tall and had oversized heads with molded plastic hair.

Their selling point was tie-ins with popular fashion brands (Dollhouse, Jordache, Nick & Nora) meaning the dolls and their owners could be wearing the same kind of looks. They came packaged with shoes and an extra outfit, and a branded shopping bag which doubled as a 1:1 scale keyring. A further two Claire's dolls were released later in the year.

Sababa also released at least some of the fashions in the set as separate packs to fit Barbie sized dolls.

The dolls came in a wide variety of hair / skin / eye types, and you can find examples of each for every release.

Dark skin + cropped black hair / bobbed black hair / long black hair.
Dark skin + cropped white hair.
Mid skin + cropped black hair / bobbed black hair / long black hair.
Mid skin + cropped brown hair / bobbed brown hair / long brown hair.
Light skin + cropped brown hair / bobbed brown hair / long brown hair.
Light skin + bobbed blonde hair / long blonde hair.

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
