Trailer Trash Dolls

Trailer Trash Dolls

Arsenic and Apple Pie unleashed their first three creations on the world in 1999. In 2004 the company attracted a lot of media attention for their upcoming release 'Trash Talkin' Turleen' which lead to the re-release of earlier doll Trailer Trash, and another talking addition in Jer Wayne Junior.

Here's the 'About' blurb from their website in 2005:

Arsenic & Apple Pie has enjoyed an established track-record of excellent support and service from our loyal customers and accounts since 1998. Our story begins in December 1996, doctored dolls made by a famous doll toy maker began to show up in the store windows of retailer Injeanious, based in San Francisco, California. It was here that the first Trailer Trash Doll was introduced and formulated. The dolls were an instant hit and in time the store offices were flooded by phone calls from all over the world. To make a long story short, a major toy maker caught wind of this due to media coverage on a national and local level and took legal action to stop the production of the dolls. 
In 1999 Arsenic & Apple Pie was formed and we began the process of designing our own dolls, having them manufactured for us to our specifications. The First Edition Trailer Trash Doll was introduced to rave reviews worldwide along with the ever popular blonde and red head Drag Queen Dolls. This was followed in August, 1999 with the development of our website and on-line catalogue, www.trailertrashdoll.com. In May 2003, our Second Edition Trailer Trash Doll was introduced with a positive response. 
Fast forward to 2004 as Arsenic and Apple Pie rolls out our exciting new website and catalogue featuring new games, pictures, accessories, and T-shirts. In November 2004, our new talking, pregnant Trailer Trash Doll, Trash Talkin' Turleen finally arrived with an overwhelming response! Check her out now on the Doll pages and send a postcard to your friends! In 2005 we expect things to be as exciting as ever as we introduce new novelty items and new dolls!  This includes two new talking bottle openers featuring the voices of Turleen and her son Bubba Jr.  This summer we will welcome our long anticipated new talking, male, mullet Trailer Trash Doll Bubba Jr. in his first edition!  We welcome you back home to the place on the "web" for all that is "trashy" and fun!

 - "Taint' nohtin' sadder than a double-wide with no beer!"
 - "Honest, I'm not lyin' through my tooth!"

Comments

  1. absolutely hilarious! Today on Facebook I commented that Ebay had sent me a message to tell me (a beardy bloke) that I could get 15% off a Barbie Princess. I observed that they had clearly got their targeting algorithm fine tuned, and a friend said maybe it knew me better than they did, to which another added a link to one of these Trailer Trash Dolls on Ebay. Never come across them before, but a quick search brought up your blog.

    We never stop learning. Absolutely hilarious that someone put so much effort into these, not least of all because of the objections of a major doll manufacturer :)

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

Guide to Sindy Houses

As far as 1/6 scale doll houses go, Sindy's Super Home is fairly ubiquitous. It's a good size, it isn't made out of pink plastic, and you can pick one up on eBay for under £50. But the Super Home wasn't Sindy's only foray into property ownership. In fact she had numerous different houses, caravans, stables, and other buildings... 1970 Sindy's Town House Though this was advertised in the 1970 brochure, it doesn't seem to have ever made it into production. 1973 Sindy's House This one apparently made it into limited production, but was flimsy and was soon replaced. According to the Sindy Museum , it had four rooms, decorated as a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. You can see part of the house used for photos in the 1974 catalogue . 1974 Sindy's House Existing examples appear to have been competition wins, so it is unlikely this house was ever on general sale. You can read more about it HERE . 1975
