Let’s Do a Pick — on a rainy day, under a covered porch with Francie #DoApick #vintageDollCollector


Today’s “Do a Pick” game features the following:

My #DoApick shorts on My YouTube Channel  let you choose from retro dolls and their clothing items and/or accessories, while imagining a fun playtime adventure from a bygone era.

Join the fun! Leave your “pick” in the comments!

At the end of today’s Do-a-Pick #Shorts video, I mentioned my new class on the Creative Spark Online Learning Platform. To learn how you can design your own doll pants, leggings, jeans, and overalls, please click here.

Wondering where the idea for #DoApick games came from? When I was a kid, whenever it was playtime with dolls, my playmates and I would lay out all our dolls and their clothing items. Then we would “do a pick.”

That’s where you take turns picking which doll or dolls you’ll play with and which outfits or accessories you’ll get to play with. Your playtime companion would take a turn picking her dolls, clothes, and accessories too.

From this happy childhood memory, I created my #DoApick Shorts. Feel free to play along by leaving your “pick” in the comments!

  1. I’d pick Long on Leather because it is super stylish and the most water repellent compared to wet fur or knits.

  2. Long on leather… Pleather .. rainproof colorful fun … Barbie needs an umbrella ☔. I once found a talking Commander GI Joe. All he ever did was bark orders when his tag was pulled so he and Barbie never hit it off very well and no wedding!
