2014 doll

Pay attention, 2014 Mad Men: This little girl is holding a LEGO set. The LEGOs are not pink or “made for girls.” She isn’t even wearing pink. The copy is about “younger children” who “build for fun.” Not just “girls” who build. ALL KIDS.

Okay, so this is mostly gonna be a feeler post. I don’t have anywhere else to post this.

I’m wanting to sell this beautiful creation up there. At the time of obtaining her she was one of a kind- I believe she still is. Made by Twigling, she is the Elf Ingenue and was obtained at L-Doll 2014 (I believe). Her joints are all still fine and the blushing was done by Dr. Krow. All work can be removed at request, including her tusks. The only thing I can’t undo is her ear piercings.

If anyone has interest- or can indeed tell me a better place to post this- don’t hesitate to shoot a PM!
