Mini Mart: Happy Doll Studio

Happy Doll Studio 1/12 Scale

Supplier: Happy Doll Studio
Website: Happy Doll Studio

Happy Doll Studio

Products:

High quality miniature knitting and crochet for dolls. I bought a crochet dress ($17) and a knitted sweater ($17), both sized for the 1/12 scale Picco Neemo. They are really beautifully made and fit perfectly. I'd wanted to get something from them for ages so I took the opportunity when they had a sale on which more or less absorbed the extra VAT charge.

Post and Packing:  $6 from Russia, plus 20% VAT.

Welsh UFO Sightings 1935

Welsh UFO Sightings

Welsh UFO sightings from 1935. For sightings from other years please click HERE.



1935, afternoon
Freystop, Pembrokeshire

Warren Davies and his sister were walking home from school one evening to their home in Freystrop, where they lived with their grandparents. They had to cross a field and then a wood on their way, and had been taking this route for some time. As they neared the end of the wood, they saw a bright yellow object, about the size of a bicycle wheel, which they thought at first was a balloon. It was floating amongst the trees and was moving backwards and forwards like a pendulum, about six feet each way. The children were scared and ran home. Although they continued to use the same route to school they were usually accompanied through the wood by their grandfather after this episode.

5ive Dolls

5ive Five Boyband

5ive were a British boyband formed in 1997 by the same team who assembled The Spice Girls. Sean left in early 2001, with the rest of the band breaking up that September. 5ive were my favourite boyband at the time - their debut album was probably the first CD I ever owned - but though I had plenty of posters on my walls I never had any of the dolls or other merch.

Yaboom / Vivid Imaginations released two doll lines in 2000, a basic set of fashion dolls and a more deluxe set of singing dolls.



5ive Five Fashion Dolls
