Watching the Smart Dolls do chores is much more fun than actually doing chores ourselves, I agree!

I'm sure they make the chores more fun though. It's just such a fun series of photos when you put them all together.

Yes, for 1/6 scale (Barbie size) "action figures" aka dolls.  Laughing

25 July - Mister Bear in a Rocking Chair
.
davidd's A DOLL A DAY 2022: - Page 5 July25b
.
Today is my grandma's birthday. Or, it would be her birthday, if, well, you know. Anyway, this little rocking chair belonged to my grandma. She used to enjoy telling the story about her parents purchasing this chair for her when she was only three months old.

I'm not sure when Mister Bear's exact birthday is, but since he is a Dan Dee "100th Anniversary Teddy Bear" he was manufactured born in 2002, so that makes him twenty years old this year! Mister Bear was a "dump rescue" a few years ago. I found him sleeping in a dumpster at the local refuse disposal center. I brought him home, cleaned him up, and he spent a couple of years standing guard duty in the storage shed before being promoted to the position of greeter in a vacation rental cabin. Now Mister Bear spends his days in a rocking chair swapping stories with guests from around the country and around the world.

A sad little fact I read today about the popularity of Teddy Bears is that the first two significant Teddy Bear Museums that opened in the mid-1980s when Teddy Bears became something of a fad -- one in the U.S. and one in England -- closed around 2005-2006 and their collections were auctioned off. That would have been shortly after the 100th anniversary (2002-2003) of the creation of the Teddy Bear.

Another sad little fact that I noticed several weeks ago is that a recent television biography of former U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt, after whom the iconic Teddy Bear was named, did not mention the Teddy Bear, nor use it as an example to illustrate Roosevelt's popularity. The narration told the viewer that Roosevelt was popular, but, c'mon, man, it's television! The "Show Don't Tell" rule applies! It would have taken only a line or two to mention the plush toy inspired by a Roosevelt hunting incident.

One additional fact I learned today; or rather, a new vocabulary word: deaccessioning. Apparently that is what rich people do with their unwanted old stuff. They don't "sell" it. They "deaccession" it. I learned that fun fact in an article about the current state of the vintage Teddy Bear market:

https://auctiondaily.com/news/4-trends-in-fine-teddy-bear-collecting-during-lockdown/

I wonder where the price cut-off is that determines whether an item has been "sold" or "deaccessioned."

27 July - Magic Mermaids... except the Name has Changed!

I first encountered mermaids like this nearly ten years ago, back in 2013. At that time they were marketed as Magic Mermaid Sea Party.

I saw this set today in the peg toy aisle at a grocery market, under the name My Mermaid Play Set.

Way back when, a set of three mermaids included three hairbrushes and one sea plant. The new set of two mermaids includes two hairbrushes, two sea plants, and a turtle and a cuttlefish!

I think the new version is the better deal, because cuttlefish!

But I didn't buy it.

Indeed, it is so much work, Addie wants you to know, that she worked the soles right off of her boots:

More cheers over here for your Ambearssador Wink Somewhere I have a pic of Sunsette with a bear in a chair, of similar size, on one of our trips.

As hard as those girls have worked, I think Mr Grumpy Overseer needs to mind his own business.
Or is he cracking the whip on YOU?  Laughing

31 July - Maudlynne Feels Annoyed and Disgusted

Well, Maudlynne often feels annoyed and disgusted. At the moment, though, the primary causes for her annoyance and disgust are that her eyeglasses frames are broken, she has a discolored scuff on the toe of one of her shoes, and the storage shed has devolved in to utter chaos.
