Tokidoki Barbie 2015: Purple Doll Hunt

I was not one of the lucky few that was able to purchase a Purple/Platinum version of the 10th Anniversary Tokidoki Barbie.  I missed out on her not once, but twice.

At the Barbie Collection site, I wasn't fast enough for the treasure hunt. It definitely hurt my chances.  A week later, she went on sale at the Toys R Us website. I had the page up for days, refreshing and checking. Even signed up for an email notification that never came. Sadly, I wasn't available when she went live around 3-4PM est. 
There's still some faint hope though. A few of them might be floating around retail stores, randomly placed in shipments of the "Pink" dolls. It's a long shot though. 
Another option is eBay, where the doll is currently selling for between $1000-$1300. (Let me go shake down my money tree...)

This is the first platinum doll I tried for and didn't get. I really loved this doll and wanted her for that reason only. Not the edition size. It has been very disappointing.…

Momoko 10th Anniversary Dolls

2015 is the 10th Anniversary of Momoko Doll.  To celebrate, several anniversary dolls are being produced. Sekiguchi released Deep Violet Momoko, Petworks will release 2 CCS dolls: MFC (Momoko Fan Club) China and Korea editions. I broke my dolly bank account to pre-order Deep Violet Momoko and Today's momoko China MFC 10th AN.  I'm very excited for them both. 
Deep Violet is, in my opinion, a re-interpretation of Pure Violet Momoko; she was one of the first Sekiguchi Momoko dolls produced. I haven't been lucky enough to add her to my collection. DV has a new, center-eyed face screening; that sold me on her as well. 

Deep Violet Momoko is still available on petworks global site, which offers international shipping:   See also additional photos:
Fabric & Friends and Cherished Friends (both USA) have her on their websites also.

TD's Momoko China MFC is just stunning. She has some of my favorite features: ra…
