Dolls, Pokemon and Pink for Pink Saturday

Welcome to Pink Saturday sponsored by Beverly at How Sweet The Sound

I decided to again feature some of my Vogue dolls this week.  They too have been afflicted with Pokemon fever.  (You can click on the photos to enlarge them.)
You'll notice the Vogue vintage reproduction Ginny is wearing pink!  Her outfit was a surprise made by a doll friend.  I bought a couple of dolls from Susan and when they arrived Ginny's cute little outfit was in the box.  Susan knew that I had a trailer for my doll scenes and Ginny's shirt has a trailer on the front.  I was thrilled.
When I was looking at these pictures I realized that Susan had also made the little train outfit for the vintage reproduction AA boy doll.  There's a train on the front of his overalls which can't been seen in this particular photo.
They're finding Pokemon all over the place!  Even kitty found one.
A modern Vogue Jill doll is keeping her eye on things.
I made their cell phones and bought the pokeballs and pokemon online.

Here are some photos where you can see the dolls and their outfits more clearly.  This is a Vogue reproduction AA Ginny wearing an outfit that I've had since childhood. It's from 1955.  For any Vogue collectors out there it's the Ginny Gym Kids outfit #32. It also came with a chartreuse felt hat, but I decided it was too hot for a hat.
In this photo you can see the train on the vintage reproduction AA boy doll's overalls.  Next to him is the vintage reproduction Ginny in her trailer outfit, the vintage reproduction Ginny in the 1955 Gym Kids outfit, and another vintage reproduction AA Ginny wearing an outfit that I made some years ago.  She's wearing a cute pair of moccasins but I can no longer remember who made them.
In the photo below next to the AA reproduction Ginny is a 1954 painted lash walker Ginny.  Collectors call them the PLW Ginnys.  The walkers were only made for one year with painted eyelashes.  After that they had molded eye lashes.  She's wearing glasses because Vogue used some paint that contained copper and the eye brows and lashes on some dolls turn slightly green to an almost florescent green with time.  It comes from being exposed to light.  Her lashes and brows aren't too bad, but when I took her out for this photo I thought they had gotten worse.  I keep her in a dark cabinet 99% of the time.  She's wearing an outfit from 1955.  For any collectors it's the Ginny Gym Kids #28.  It also came with a hat that she's not wearing.  The doll on the end is a vintage reproduction boy doll that I've turned into my version of JJ Watt as a child.  JJ is a Houston Texans defensive end.  I thought I'd add that information for the non-football fans out there.
 I've said before how sad it is to me that Vogue is no longer making any dolls.  I really liked the reproduction dolls they were making.  I kept hoping they'd come out with some more since the web site is still up, but there haven't been any in a number of years.

Now please head over to Beverly's blog for a list of this week's participants.  Thanks for visiting...


  1. THe yellow dress reminds me of me wearing similar dresses, according to photos of myself when I was 3 or 4. I love that striped jumpsuit.

  2. Gosh you know a lot about dolls. Very interesting. I have one old doll and I am trying to keep her nice, but......
    I love the trailer and the matching outfit - cool. And the train outfit.
    You are a hoot too with the Pokemon.
    The dog almost looks like Disco - but the colors are reversed. But that is the kind of dog he is. Have fun and stay cool!

  3. So cute!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!


  4. Wow! You did a lot of work, all fun I'm sure, here, Betty. I like the idea of them all having cell phones so they could play Pokémon. I still like the holiday trailer best though.
    Thanks too for pointing out that the boy doll with the Texan helmet is JJ Watt. My Omaha cousin's son who works for the Round Rock and Corpus Christi teams is call "J.J." Our then six-year-old granddaughter doesn't know him nor of him. So when Mrs. Jim said on day in the GD's presence that she was going to call J.J. the GD almost flipped with excitement. "You know J.J!"

    1. p.s. You were doing great in the Falcon Convertible! You had a lot of Fords too. Thank you for peeking in on my blog and for your nice comment.
      I will be sure to let you know when I post my Mom's Campbell Soup doll collection. I still have most of them but have given a few away and my sister has several. They won't compare with your Ginny work, mine are just dolls sitting on the top of a couch.

  5. I sure love seeing your cute dolls here! You have so much fun setting up these cuties with all their wonderful accessories. I just love it! HPS to you! I try to participate but so many over there won't visit or comment so I feel slighted. I loved Sally, she never missed anyone. What a gem she was. Jeanne does a nice job hosting Blue Monday. Hard shoes to fill that Sally was a positively beautiful ray of sunshine! xo
