Dress Me Up Before You Go-Go

26 May

Boohoo! I haven’t been able to locate my camera’s program CD. I’ve been looking for a few days now and I can’t find it in any of the logical hiding places around the room. It’s not in the closets, not underneath the bed, not in the camera bag, not in dresser, and not in the bedside table. I’m sure it’s just here somewhere; problem is, I can’t remember where I kept it or even where I saw it last. These senior moments have been happening more often now, as we move things around in an effort to hide things from Alphonse’s curious eyes and prying hands.  Instead of having a fixed place for our things, we play “musical spaces” (our version of “musical chairs”) with them. Just last week, it took us three days to locate the ear thermometer. By the time we found it stashed underneath A’s old shirts (this was where one of the nannies hid it but forgot about it until three days later), we no longer needed it. Alphonse’s fever was all gone.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that unless I can get the picture utility program in this laptop, many of my personal pictures will have to wait for when the desktop computer comes home. Consequently, many of my stories will simply be retelling of things I have found while surfing the Net. Have I looked for an online download of my program? Well, duh, of course I have but I haven’t met with success yet. So, as I give this desperate search mission a final chance, I guess I’ll have to content myself with sharing the things I have found interesting  on the Net.

Today, as I surfed my Multiply account, I was drawn to a contact’s pre-order page for Hello Kitty plushes. I haven’t gotten any new dolls lately (the last one is the most recent 35th anniversary Hello Kitty Build-A-Bear) but I do enjoy looking at albums of new arrivals. This, however, was what caught my attention. Did you know that you could own a Hello Kitty Dress Me Doll that comes in its own case? I didn’t even know that until today.

I would have preferred it if my own Dress Me dolls (I have three of them) came in cases. This way, I would not worry about keeping them clean and dust-free. The Dress Me dolls tend to get dirtier than BAB dolls, I’ve noticed, so I don’t play with them as often. The case also works as a wonderful storage for the doll’s clothes and shoes, and having them all in one place helps keep things tidy.

At PhP6899, however, this is a little too steep for me. The doll retails for only US$14; here in the country, most online sellers peg them from PhP1350 to around PhP1500. Add the value of the dress, say roughly another thousand bucks, and the value of the case, and I still don’t think PhP6899 is worth it. I do understand, however, that prices from where this doll and case come from may be highly inflated, thus, the corresponding increase in the cost for this item.

Still, were I awash with dough at this moment (not the edible one, silly), I probably would not have second thoughts about this. If you’re interested and would love to own this, head on to Smay168Fashion Onine Boutique. I love Hello Kitty Dress Me dolls and this seems like a perfect way to package it- doll and handy case in one so get one if you can afford it.

And while we’re at it, check out these outfits currently available at Sanrio.com.  Just think of these cool outfits hanging in that equally cool case and it just about makes me squeak in delight.  The clothes sell for US$20 at the Sanrio site. I think I’ll wait till the local Gift Gate carries these before I bust the Kitty bank again, though. 🙂 

In the meantime, I’m bringing out my dolls for a spell. Enjoy these Dress Me dolls, folks!

    They’re soooo cute. I’ve never seen them before.

    I have the anniversary edition of the Build a Bear Workshop Hello Kitty too. I have the original one as well, and she has been well loved. Her fur is now more of a grey colour, hehe.

    They recently re-released Hello Kitty’s cousin too, and I really want her 😥 But alas, no money!

      I guess that’s why Tropical BAB gets the most hugs (and also abuse) in this household. She’s brown and does not seem too affected by dust and dirt and grime. Speaking of which, there’s a new HK Tropical doll out. I know I shouldn’t think of adding another one to my brood of BAB Kitties, but she just looks so darn cute!

      P.S. What does her cousin look like?

        The tropical one in which you have referred to has been marketed here as being her cousin, hehe 🙂
