You are not going to believe what I found while surfing the internet yesterday! I feel so behind in just finding out that Jason Wu, the designer, has a line of collector dolls on the market called Fashion Royalty Dolls. Please understand that I’m a loyal fan to Barbie, I really am. When I was a little girl, I had way too many Barbie dolls to count and I still get excited till this day when I see one of my little nieces’ playing with one. But these Fashion Royalty Dolls are no joke! We’re talking about some serious designs these dolls are wearing!
Apparently, Jason Wu conceptualized the idea of starting a line of collector dolls back in the year 2000 while living in Europe. His plan was create a line of dolls that are meant to celebrate the glamour and excitement of the Fashion Industry. With the help of the Integrity Toys design team, Wu was able to turn his idea into a reality by 2001 after receiving a warm welcome at Toy Fair that year. This line of dolls is definitely a step up, and are certainly not for the novice collector as they carry a pretty hefty price (from $100 up). You won’t find these dolls in Toys ‘R’ Us either people…you’ll have to find a serious doll retailer to get one of these. You can imagine what the clothing they wear looks like, after all, this is Jason Wu we’re talking about. I’ve never been so envious of a doll’s wardrobe in my life!
