Obsession

Part of my doll shoes collection.
I have to admitt, I'm an obsessive type. Obsessed with rats, dolls and... doll shoes! My dolls have to have shoes, otherwise their look is incomplete. I used to buy dolls for their shoes as well as not buy some, because I didn't have shoes to fit them.
I've committed a few pairs for the dolls less provided by the producers, but I haven't mastered it yet.
Today, I want to show you my favourite factory-made little shoes.


Yesterday I decided that since I have to go to the hospital again, I might as well get some new dolly shoes. I got my hubby running around the city and in the end I got... Jelly Babies. They're almost as good. ;)
Toy shops already have Christmas expositions, but the only doll shoe pack my hubby found consisted of two pairs of pink strappy sandals. Bleh!


Barbie's Pretty Treasures 1995
I found Barbie's Pretty Treasures set sometime around 1995 in the biggest toy shop in the city, an exceptional place for a child raised in the gray reality of communism, and they shone like a true treasure. I didn't dare to ask my parents to buy me the set, it was so expensive! I've collected all money I got for a month or so and got back to the shop praying for the set to be there. And it was waiting there for me!
It has everything I love about doll shoes - real lace, working buckles and two colours.


Shoes good for kicking butts and saving Ken (from left: Hi Hi Puffy Ami, Barbie's shoes from a shoe pack, Generation Girl Chelsea, Hi Hi Puffy Yumi)
Since most of my dolls were at that time more of adventurers than princesses, I dreamt about proper shoes for them. The beige ones above were the first I got, the others are recent finds.

Poseable Barbie shoes

Of course, poseable Barbie was another story. I didn't like that type of body and didn't have one for a long time due to lack of shoes. Love for Mattel's Mulan helped me to overcome this aversion and set me out hunting for flat shoes.


MGA's Top Models' shoes - lovely!

TBC.

  1. Your kicking butt shoes are my kind of kicks! I like chunky, sturdy shoes. I used to wear jelly shoes as a kid but I've not seen them made for dollies.

    You have a wonderful collection.

    1. Thanks! Now that I think of it, I have 2 pairs of Barbie shoes that might go as jelly shoes. I'll need to look fr them.

  2. Doskonale rozumiem fascynację bucikami! Sama je uwielbiam i wciąż mam ich za mało!
    Też kiedyś miałam problem z butami dla płaskostopych lalek, ale na szczęście udało mi się zdobyć dla nich buciki - nawet takie same jak Twoje! :)

    1. Gdybym wypatrzyła jeszcze jakiś zestaw dla plaskaczków, na pewno bym chciała. Fajnych butów nigdy za dużo! ;)

  3. Nosz kurde, każda babka kocha buty! Czemu niby Baśki miałyby być inne!
    Sama chciałabym mieć szafę takich pantofelków. Albo trampków... chyba bardziej trampków :)

    1. Trampki najlepszym przyjacielem każdej dziewczyny! ;)

  4. A ja nie jestem maniakiem obuwia i mam niewiele par. Moje lalki są o niebo lepiej wyposażone niż ja, ale tymi butkami do kopania zadków, na grubej podeszwie, bym nie pogardziła ani ja, ani moje stado białogłowych :D

    1. Ja niewiele par mam z przyczyn technicznych - producenci rzadko o mnie myślą. Kiedyś lubiłam tylko butki do kopania zadków, teraz czasem lubię zasadzić komuś szpilę. ;)

  5. Hello from Spain: I agree with you because I also bought the dolls for the shoes they wear. I can not stand a doll without shoes. I have many shoes in my collection. I see you too. Keep in touch

    1. You take so much care about all the details, that I'm not surprised. :)

  6. Ja też jestem fanka butów wszelakiej maści, więc doskonale rozumiem tę obsesję :))) Fajne buciki mają Twoje panny !!!
    Pozdrawiam :)

    1. Fajnie mam też ja, bo uwielbiam grzebać w bucikach, dobierać do kreacji. Mężyk mówi, że chyba bardziej lubię szukać jakiejś pary bucików, niż ją założyć lalce. ;)

  7. A jak jest z butami, które kupujesz dla siebie? ;) Też masz na tym punkcie obsesję? ;)

    1. Trochę mam, bo jak już coś na mnie pasuje, to jest święto, więc chyba sobie odbijam, dopieszczając obuwniczo lalki. ;)

    2. Jest to jakaś metoda - chyba też tak zacznę, bo ani ubrań, ani butów... ;)

    3. No nie wiem, 3 koty po 4 nogi... Chcesz, żebym zbankrutowała??

      Delete
    4. To zależy ile jesteś skłonna zapłacić za widok kota w trampkach próbującego wskrobać się na drzewo. ;)
