CuriOzer and curiOzer!

To be perfectly honest, Momma has not paid too much attention to Madame Alexander dolls since she was a girl. She thinks she has two packed away and my Big Sister has one of their 18 inch dolls, but the childish faces have not appealed to Momma in years.

So we were both Pleasantly Shocked when Doll Diaries posted a photo on Facebook of Steam Punk Dorothy from the 2014 Toy Fair.


After hastily digging around we discovered not only their Steam Punk Oz line, but a Steam Punk Wonderland line, too!

NEW Commemorative The Wizard of Oz™ 75th Anniversary Dolls Designed by the Iconic Madame Alexander Doll Company!

February 7, 2014 (New York, NY) - From the time Dorothy™ landed in Munchkinland™, Madame Alexander has created exclusive dolls based on the classic film.
