New this year will be "Tiny Totes", an eclectic and fun collection of miniature purses. Because these little fashion handbags will be key chain sized, they will work as accessories for both for 12" and 16" dolls. Each collectible tote will contain two surprise accessories like hair clips, charms, eyeglasses or mini-wallets. There are 24 different totes in the 4 series that have been announced. They all have clever names as well to increase the fun and collectability.
Four miniature Madame Alexander key chain dolls will also debut. Alice in Wonderland, Spring Bouquet Ballerina, Happy Birthday and Tinkerbell will be lovingly detailed with open/close eyes and fabric trimmings. A miniature doll box with classic Madame Alexander pink and blue stripes will add to the appeal of these little gals.
Fans of Mattel’s Diva Stars will be thrilled to see them in miniature key chain size. The tiny versions of Summer, Nikki, Alexa and Tia will all have rooted hair and detailed fashion outfits. And just like the full-sized dolls, they talk! Push the flowers on their shoes and each Diva will say her name and giggle.
The Barbie key chains will make a comeback in 2002 and be represented with mini versions of #1 Swim Suit Barbie, Ballerina Barbie, Solo in the Spotlight Barbie and Birthday Barbie. All will have articulated arms and come with a miniature stand.
New mini classic games include Parcheesi, Aggravation, Mr. Mouth and Don’t Spill the Beans. Also new are miniature craft sets including a really cool mini Spin Art set.
