Since this blog has been growing (I just reached 2 million hits), it’s no longer fair to call it a personal journal. Lately I think of it as a small business.

I’ve never pretended to be a toy reviewer, but I certainly appreciate those who take the time to mention articulation in their doll reviews. An articulated doll is so much easier to design and sew clothes for than a doll with limited movement. So rather than calling this a toy review, I’m considering my brief video more of a sewing tip.
