Bummers and a Giveaway

Okay, bad news first:
I decided I wanted to try dyeing a dolls hair. I wanted an 18" doll with glow in the dark pink hair, so I go out to buy a Springfield doll. My local Michaels doesn't have a blond one... So I go to a different Michaels and discover that Springfield has decided to update their dolls, they have new eyes, they come in a box, they come with a dress and for some reason they have less hair! I bought one but when I got her home and out of the box, she was going bald! She actually had three spots where hair hadn’t been rooted and the places with hair didn’t have much. So I returned her to yet another Michaels and looked at their other dolls, they had blond ones and red heads, all of the dolls seemed to have this same radiation poisoning or something. It’s unbelievable! I mean I knew Springfield was a cheap doll, but I didn’t know they were that cheap!
I have a Springfield doll, I got her about a year or so ago, she has a full head of hair, very thick in comparison with the blond one I had for a short while. So I think the older Springfield dolls are of better quality than the new ones, maybe they’re spending too much money on the dresses and boxes and not enough on the doll. I would rather have a naked doll in a bag, with a full head of hair, than a balding doll in a box, that comes with a crappy dress.
So anyway, I wanted her for her hair in the first place! A bald doll wouldn't do me any good.... So I'm disappointed, mad and a little bit sad.....

But I have this giveaway to cheer me up;
Fishing and Wishing has a gift card to Toastory, they have some awesome stuff so check it out!
