When I first started collecting and reading blogs, I didn't understand why some people left their dolls in boxes. I know some do it because they're buying for resale. It was the ones that fully intend to keep the item but wont open it I didn't get. I was all, "How can you not want to play with it?" Cue to a year later and look who's got a few dolls still in boxes.
Ms. Leo did a great post where she imitated an advertisement. I finally found an ad that I wanted to try this with and the lady it features is Asian. I have a boxed Asian lady who would be perfect but when I picked up the box I really didn't want to open it.
I only have 20 fashion dolls on display because that's as many as I want out at one time. It's kind of a way of policing myself (it doesn't work very well though). Dolls that are purchased for parts, clothes or rebodying go straight to the spare parts box. But others that I intend to feature at some point, stay boxed. Except, now that I have one to feature, I refuse to take it out, lol. I just like how the boxes look together. It's as though I have my own cool little toy section.
Hi, I'm Muff. I like to keep my dolls in their boxes.
