LIV's Alexis with Dark Hair

On a recent trip to Toys R Us to return some items, I purchased "It's My Nature Alexis."  Instead of providing a credit to my CC or giving me a cash refund for the returned online-purchased items, I received a TRU gift card.  What nerve of TRU to think I would want something from their store.  :-)

I "forced" myself to browse the doll section where the shelves still looked pretty bare from the recent attack of Christmas shoppers.  There I found the lone Alexis marked down from $19.99 to $9.99.  "Her funky outfit is worth $9.99," I thought.  Plus, she seemed to beg me to bring her home.

In comparing this dark brunnette version with my first Alexis, I've determined she looks much better with darker hair (even if her eyes still look a little crossed). Maybe she needs corrective lenses... hmmmm...

She'll be deboxed soon and paired up with Alexis #1.

  2. I just bought this doll from walmart.com. They have a LIV sale for $10 for most of the older dolls. I love the outfits. The leggings that they wear fit my Only Heart dolls. Goodness knows those girls need more clothes.

  3. Hi Vanessa,

    I look at this doll's box everyday and everyday I tell myself I am going to free her. I am going to get around to doing that soon.

    I purchased her because of her funky fashions and because of her reduced price! I need to enjoy her and discard the box.

    Congratulations on finding yours, reduced.

  4. Did you notice that the latest Alexis, the dancing one, is actually brown skinned? instead of just "thinking about being brown"?
    I took a pic with my phone.

  5. Yes, Kristl, I did. I saw Alexis this week at Target and I believe, if I'm not mistaken, that the doll is on sale in the store and online for $10. I'll double-check when I return.

    I almost purchased her "because" of her brown skin, but I'm getting a little bit tired of dolls with the big-head syndrome. They're cool for girls, however.

  6. I think the new dancing doll is darker than the other Alexis dolls.
    I think this is the one Kristl was talking about.

  7. Thanks, Vanessa. This is my first time seeing this one, but I can't tell from her online pictures if she's darker. Maybe she'll make it to the stores here soon just for me to see her up close and personal.

    Her big hair appears to mask her big head.

  8. Someone recently did a blog post comparing the pictures of both and she is more brown skinned than the first one. I can't remember who did the post unfortunately.

    By the way, I thought we discussed you NOT being such an enabler. I am going to start referring to you as Ms. Target. You know I was looking at those Formal LIV dolls, but my bank account said NO!!! Actually it said Hell No!, but I am not one to curse.

  9. LOL! When I see a doll sale, even if I don't plan on taking the plunge, I am compelled to share the good news.
