Dollar Tree Find!

Look what I found at the Dollar Tree for $1.00!!!!  I was totally surprised.  I picked him up and thought, this can't be true.  I heard children running in the store and I thought at any given moment some little kid would come to me and say "excuse me but that is my doll".  I picked up a few items that I went in there for and made my way to check out.  I held my breathe as the cashier scanned my items and then....the doll.  She stated "I didn't know that we had these in here".  I said, "I am so happy that you do.  Do you have any more?".  She said "no, but we will probably get some more in our next shipment".  Can you guys believe it...$1.00!  Wow!  I am not sure who he will be in my stories or who he will date.   Here is a mini photo shoot of TJ.  I am thinking of calling him Kyle.  What does he look like his name should be?


              

Of course I had to give him some facial hair.

              

              

His friend Mike came by to give him a welcome.


As he was leaving he spotted Nadja

                 

TJ (for now):  Hello, pretty lady.  My name is TJ.
Nadja:  silence...
TJ:  May I please have a moment with you.
Nadja:  No! (She kept walking without ever looking back).


It didn't take him long before he bumped into Nikki who had plenty of conversation for him.  Those FR girls can be some mean girls sometimes.  Lol!


Thanks for stopping by.

Be blessed!

    1. Hi LaDonna. I have gone to three Dollar Trees and have not had any more success. I have seen the little Kenya dolls there, but not the fashion dolls.

  6. Great find! He's very cute! Kyle sounds good, I also like Eriq (yes, after the actor who played my favorite doctor in E.R. Eriq La Salle :-D ).

  7. Hilarious. A brotha can't get no play from a tall girl? LOL!

    1. Hi Jaye. Thank you! :-) You have to check them all out. I am still looking for more. It is truly amazing that they were able to send them to the Dollar Tree. I remember back in the day, Big Lots had the surplus Mattel dolls. Now Big Lots prices are just as high as anyone else.

    2. Oh, I forgot to comment on "a brother can't get no play from a tall girl". Lol!! It is that the FR girls all have major attitude in my doll world. The M girls hold their own and are very secure especially since they out number the FR divas. Lol!

  8. Wow... what a find! I guess I need to head to Dollar Tree this weekend. I was just in that shopping complex two days ago, but needed nothing from there, so drove right past.

    I like the mustache and beard you gave Kyle and I like his name too. This head sculpt has always reminded me of an actor from back in the day, Calvin Lockheart as seen here.

    Congratulations on such a great buy!

    1. I am amazed that this company sold their leftovers to the Dollar Tree. I wonder if this means that they will not create new dolls. I hope you are able to find one.

      I agree Kyle or whatever his name will be does remind me of Calvin Lockheart as well.

  9. Congrats on that SUPER find. MEGA THANKS for sharing, too.

    FR and NuFace gals are recognized snobs; they're just created that way, lol.

    Eriq is a good name for him. Also Taye, Taj, Tiger, Tony, Tommy ....

    He has a cousin, too, Mr. T.J. Dwayne ;-)

  11. Wow! I wonder what happened with the company that these ended up at the Dollar Store?! Heck, not that I'm complaining, because that's a good deal for the clothes alone. Thanks for telling us!

    1. I am wondering the same thing! If they can sell this doll for $1.00, how much does it really cost to produce one. I hope you are able to find him.

  13. Cool! These dolls sell for $20 at least on ebay, great you could find him for only $1.00! I've been tempted to buy a few for the clothes, especially the men.

    1. Thanks Vanessa! I agree you never know what you will find at the Dollar Tree. I have seen the little Kenya dolls in there also. I wish they would bring back those chairs that they had once upon a time.

  17. Hi. I just found your blog. Great stuff! I'll be following you.
    I'm in Phila. and when I saw these dolls, I literally froze in my steps. I got all 6 of them! I've been collecting this line for years and I know how much they're worth. I went around the truth-state area looking in Dollsr trees and found more. I'll use them in my dioramas as twins, siblings and relatives. I, too, will give some facial hair using flocking. Looking forward to the story lines.
    If you get the chance, check out my blog @ BrenovaBlog.wordpress.com
