Mattel has a collection series called Princesses of the World and this year they came out with a Russian Princess

It reminds me of this pic of Olga



I was hoping the Princess of Russia would have a more ..how should I say "Romanov" court style to it, but oh, well I'll still buy it. I have been waiting for it for some time now

Mattel also does a "Women of Royalty™ Collection". They only have 2 dolls so far. One is Marie Antoinette and 1 is Elizabeth I.

I would love them to do one of Alix. They are expensive!
$250 each!
My husband would kill me then have a heart attack!
ROFL!
But the detail on these 2 dolls is so great! And I gotta say the face on that 1st Tsarina doll is ugly!
:P

Here's another Anastasia doll by The House of Faberge and The Franklin Mint.


Don't knock on Death's door....ring the doorbell and run. He hates that.:D

Unfortunately this picture isn't very big but it's all I could find right now.

The Madame Alexander 'Anastasia' is as sweet as I imagined.  Let's see, Papa and 4 more children to go....

Thank you 'Anastasia Fan'!  :)

Not yet, I tried looking for it too.

It will be released next year, or at least that is what the lady at the store said.

I took a picture of the Alexandra doll by the Hamilton Collection, out of all the pictures of her dolls I still like this one the best, I will post it very soon if someone reminds me, I am sure that all of you will enjoy it.  :)
Blow a kiss I run through air
Leave the past, find nowhere
Floating forests in the air
Clowns all around you

Alll this black and cruel despair
This is an emergency
Don't you hide your eyes from me
Open them and see me now

Thanks for the link.  Am glad to read this. I have never been one to collect dolls, but dragged a friend of mine all over town last weekend looking for this one. She was amused to see me tearing through toy stores and departments.  ;)

Thank you!

:D Welcome  :D
I hate going store to store to try and find something! I do most of my Christmas shopping online now. I figure the money I would spend on gas going from store to store I can spend on the shipping and handling

I do the same thing.  I have 2 children under 3, so I like to shop online after they are in bed.  No worries about them seeing the toy aisle and wanting the toys.  And the online coupons and discounts more than compensate for the S&H costs.

But I keep trying to figure out how to keep my soon to be 3 year old away from any dolls I buy.  Presents a whole new problem...  Husband is hard enough!!  :o

Your posting was removed as we do not permit links to ebay items for sale. We do not want to turn this educational site into a commercial one. Also, the link would simply become null 30 days after the sale ended so would just be useless as an archive.
Thanks.

Oh, sorry I just thought the doll was pretty.

There is a doll from Faberge called Natalia the Spring Bride, along with Katya the Summer Bride and Katerina the Holiday bride these are part of a collection, I think  which also includes the Aleksandra Winter Bride

Hi All,

A doll costumer sold a lovely version of Alexandra that can be seen here in her archive: http://www.wardrobesecrets.com/alexandra.htm
and the Franklin Mint has a doll of Alexandra with wardrobe choices and another of Anastasia.  I won't post the link since it is a commercial site but if you search on the FM site you will find them.

Best,

Sarah
