Kelly Christmas Scene

Christmas is only a few days away! The past few days I've been setting up a Christmas scene to photograph with most of my Christmas themed Kellys and some of the Nutcracker dolls are in there too :). Here's the overall scene:

Back to School Melody is dressed up in a knitted winter dress, hat, and scarf my mom made and playing in the snow with Snowman Tommy and Winter Treat Becky. Winter Treat Becky is trying to put more snow onto Snowman Tommy. 

Skater Kelly and Holiday Bunch Deidre are skating and enjoying the ice rink!

Barbie's New Baby Sister Kelly

I received my first Kelly doll from my parents in 1994 when I was 5 years old! She was also the first Kelly made by Mattel in this body mold. (There was a Stacie sized doll before her named Kelly made by Mattel). Here she is!

Who is Kelly?

Welcome to my Kelly blog! Kelly is a doll made by Mattel and she was first advertised as "Barbie's baby sister," which was later changed to "Barbie's little sister."  Mattel no longer makes Kelly dolls; they have changed Kelly to Chelsea, and now she has a completely different look.  I fell in love with Kelly dolls when I was a little girl and I've been collecting them for quite some time now.  They have a cuteness to them that I haven't seen in many other dolls.

In this blog I plan to post "profile pictures" of all my Kelly dolls and her friends. I also plan to post what I call "scene pictures" of my Kellys- set ups as if they were playing. My long term goals are to write stories based on what I played when I was younger and perhaps write and draw a manga series :). Enjoy them ^.^
