There's something wonderfully bizarre about squeezing an airplane and a cruise ship into one playset. Talk about compact living! I think I would have bought it just for the sound effects too, but the kitchen was a nice surprise, working lights and all. Although I feel a bit bad for poor Ms. Pasternak, forever stuck to her cart/dollstand... :D Hope you have fun at the doll show!
LOL, Anderson, I think that Ms. Pasternak has shown us that she will not be confined, lol. She likes to party too much to be hindered by that cart.
Wow! What a great find! Love the cart/dollstand, lol. Cute video :) Don't hit your head on the disco ball, Ms. Pasternak! ;)
Thanks, Farrah Lily! It was definitely a fun find.
Oh, that's MARVELOUS. An entire vacation in a box! I would be fascinated for days with stocking the galley kitchen, and that's before even getting to the question of accessorizing the cruise ship side. Little shelves and things that open!Looking forward to the show prep posts...
Smaller, I didn't even think of it that way! You are right, it is a vacation in a box.
Both were great finds!! Your videos are totally awesome. I can't wait to see what you do with them....future pics, dioramas. Oh, and that Ms Pasternak knows how to party! Lol!Your display has come along very nice. Please take pics of your display at the show. Many blessings on your sells.
Thanks, Georgia Girl! I bet when it was fully stocked, some kid had a grand time playing with it. I can just imagine the parties that were thrown.Thanks so much for the doll show blessings!
Great find! Not to shabby for $9.95! I loved Ms. Pasternak. She really knows how to let down her hair and party! Good luck at the doll show. Looking forward to seeing your displays and pics from the show!
Not shabby at all, Phyllis! Okay, it's a little scruffy, but I can buff that out, lol. Thanks for the good luck wishes!
Is that what is known as a vacation package? Flight and cruise. lol I love it all! I would have been playing with that for a while. This is perfect for a really cool doll story!
It sure is, Grandmommy! I use to cruise way, way back in the day. You'd book your airfare and cruise in one package and pay for your excursions while you were on the ship. I miss it and I don't, lol, because it was always fun, but always a hassle getting there and back. There's a cruise line right out of Jacksonville now, so I wouldn't have to fly to Miami anymore, but it's still not worth the hassle.
There is a port out of Charleston too now. I have not sailed out of it yet. Getting to Fla. first IS a hassle.
Hello from Spain: great job with the video. I like to see every detail. I like the hostess with the car. A great buy. I had not seen before this plane-boat. A great idea. Keep in touch
Thanks, Marta! It was my first time seeing such a play set too.
Great video! Mrs. Pasternak has a winning personality!
Ms. Pasternak is quite the pip, Limbe dolls!
What a great find!I've never seen that playset before, but what a brilliant concept!
jSarie, I like that it's so compact but still packs a punch.
Great find! I love the sounds, the reclining seat, the overhead compartment and the kitchen. I just looked on ebay to see what it looks like with more pieces. It comes with at least 3 chairs. This is the perfect set....you first fly to your destination then board the cruise ship. Good luck with your show!
Thanks, Vanessa! I sure am glad that I took a risk on it, but we know I'm always tempted by things I cant see inside, lol, I could probably outfit it with its original items through eBay, but that would cost more than what I paid for the whole unit.
Hi Muff, I love the video and Ms Pasternak! I want a super vacation package at 9.95 $ too!!!!Kisses Billa
LOL, Billa! If I could get a real vacation package for that amount, I'd sign up real quick!
Awesome find! I remember partying like that on my last cruise...disco ball and all. Best of luck at the doll show! I wish I could attend. I'm sure you will be showing and selling some fantastic goodies.
LOL, Jewell, I was always a total downer when I was cruising. I pretty much stayed in the room. By the time I would get my sea legs the trip would be over.
Hi Muff! Congrats on your new, cool playset. It'll probably be more fun to outfit it with stuff you have or make ;-)Go, Ms Pasternak! She's a party of one! "Shake your groove thing, yea, yea!" (Oh gosh, guess I am that old, lol.)Best wishes for fun at the Doll Show. We know your exhibit will rock. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks, D7ana! I remember that song so I must be just as old! Yea yea, lol. Thanks for the well wishes. From your mouth to people's pocket books.
That's a great find! It makes me miss my plane and boat I have for Barbie.
Awe, that's too bad, Brini. I hope you had some awesome fun with them while you had them.
What a great find, Muff!! That looks like so much fun!
Thanks, April, it sure is!
What an amazing playset. I'm sure you will have more fun kitting it out with things you find than if you had got it with all the pieces intact. I notice Ms. Pasternak's updated her outfit as the video progressed. I hope your show goes well and you sell lots.
LOL, Carrickters. Yes, she did seem to loose her clothing along with her inhibitions as the day wore on.
Hey Muff, I tagged you in this contest! Check it out and good luck! http://ateliernishasha.blogspot.com/2015/02/win-graphic-cropped-top-this-weekend.html?showComment=1423375383286#c3011040316638824321
Ohh, a contest?! *goes to check*Thanks, Grandmommy!
What a great set with clever accessories! Ms. Pasternak is a beautiful doll too, she seems to belong with the set! Great video! Night Owl
Thanks, Linda! She does fit right in with the set and she will only ever have one passenger on the plane to worry about, lol.
