Showing Some Kelly Love

I know somewhere in the beginning of this blog I talked about my Kelly collecting. I have been a collector of a Barbie's little sister since her inception back in '95. Kelly & friends are the cutest things. Her friends include Tommy, Tamika, Deidre, Jenny, Nia, Kerstie and more. You can find all the info on Kelly at L'il Friends of Kelly .  Mattel decided in 2011 to change Kelly to Chelsea for some made up reason. Here is a small glimpse of my collection. 

These are all classic Kelly & friends I consider my play kids. Forgive the naked kids I have to redress a few. Some of the empty spaces had doubles I pared down.












These are some of the OOAK's (one of a kind) I've collected over the years. I have many more that I've received as gifts over the years. I will have to inventory them all one day.




I've also picked up some Japanese versions of  kids. These are what they called Licca Kindergarteners

    1. You know that is so true. This is not even close to them all. I have about 25 more containers of Kelly & friends. I had to have my afro kids :O)

  3. Thanks so much for sharing your Kelly collection. I remember being envious when you went to the Kelly convention. I have my fair share, but nothing like this. They're adorable.

  6. So adorable! One of them is blue, like a little mini monster doll. Do you know if that was her original color?

    1. Hey Muff, she's actually green. I call her Emerald Jade :O) She is from the Wizard of Oz Witches set they had out a few years ago. I had her repainted by Loanne of Tabloach Productions

  7. Beautiful collection! I love your OOAKs!! I have a ton as well too, but mine are still in the box. I really like the clear containers. They appear to take up little space.

    1. GG Thank you :O) The Plano containers are easier for me. They hold 12 dolls and I can stack them in a corner when they aren't in use. The boxes started taking up too much space. I still have some in boxes but most are in containers.

  8. Such beautiful dolls. I have a few but not nearly as many as you do. I like all the different hairstyles and faces. Mattel has had great sucess with this doll. I love the cases. What a great idea. I know my dolls get a little dirty from time to time. The case would really help with that.
