Joyous Celebration Poppy Parker

My gorgeous Poppy Parker.

I haven't covered 12" dolls for a while, so I thought I should rectify that by showing you two of my newer Poppy Parkers.  I got them both this past year, but haven't put them on the blog yet. This beauty is Joyous Celebration Poppy Parker, who was a W Club offering celebrating the 5th anniversary of the Poppy Parker doll.  I think she's just lovely.  She'll definitely be staying.

She has the same eye screening as the Bergdorf Poppy, I Love How You Love Me, Ask Any Girl and Baby It's You (as well as a slew of other Poppys).

Her earrings are absolutely wonderful.  Her dress is done in a high-quality fabric, with a tiny zipper down the back.  Her shoes are pink to match the fluffy underskirt.  She has one of my favorite hair colors: That shade of brunette that's so dark brown it's almost black, but not quite.


And since it's Poppy week, I'll show you another I got last summer.  She's the silver-haired "Sebina Havoc: Mistress of Disguise" Poppy Parker.  This doll came with two heads and I had no interest in her other head, so I ended up selling it before I even got a picture.  This head is so pretty, but I've been planning to do a partial reroot on her to fill out her hair in the back.  Her hair came in a ponytail, and when I took it down, I discovered a pretty big bald spot in the back of her head.  Turns out she's a match for the "silver bullet" saran doll hair sold on dollyhair.com, so I ordered some of that for her.  I still haven't bothered to do the partial reroot yet, though.  (Sorry, but I don't know what the color saran is called on the Restore Doll site, since I don't use them.)

Here she is, looking sad that she still has a bald spot in back. She does look good in blue, though, doesn't she?


  1. Hi, they are both very beautiful, Well, Sebina doesn't look too happy but you'll do a great job with her hair, I'm sure of it.
    I love the closeup of joyouse Poppy, very intense!

  2. Both are gorgeous! I don't personally own any Polly Parker dolls (maybe someday!) but I just love their faces :)

  3. I love Joyous and Sebina. I have to find a body for Sebina's head. I can't wait to see how your reroot comes out. I'm leaving her ponytail for now ;O)

  4. The Joyous Celebration outfit stands out, and the only reason I haven't bought it yet is because I can't decide whether I want the doll herself. Sometimes when I look at her I really like her, and I don't think I have a FR doll with that hairstyle (although I generally don't like hair that is pulled back tightly). Other times, I wonder if I really want another Poppy.

    On the other hand, I did buy the Sebina Havoc/Loni Lawrence doll. I like the idea of being able to switch heads, similar to the Barbie Fashionista line. Fun! From your post, at least now I know not to take out the pony tail unless I'm prepared to do some work on her. Thanks for the heads up!
