Last week, I took advantage of the incredible sale on the Integrity Toys website. I ordered Monsieur Z Jungle Fever and Boogie Beach Reese (2nd and 3rd from the right). Upon their arrival, I started to place them on the self with my other MIB Integrity dolls, but had second thoughts; These dolls are meant to be enjoyed - not just looked at! So instead of finding shelf space for them, I liberated them from their boxes! After doing so, I heard the not-so-faint cries of the other Integrity girls saying "Me too! Me too!" Before I knew what was happening, the ITBE doll in red and Electro Pop Dayle in pink were both running around singing "Free at last, free at last!" Nadja and Adele had been de-boxed long ago, but were still packed away from last summer's move.
I simply had to find them so that they could join their sisters in a little impromptu photo shoot.
I absolutely love Integrity dolls for a number of reasons - one of which is the fact that Jason Wu seems to have an infinite number of face sculpts! Unlike Mattel and MGA, each character has her own face sculpt! I have one other Adele - an early one that I have yet to unpack, but my Integrity/Fashion Royalty collection is small in comparison to most others. Even so, the diversity is apparent. I realize that the economy has many doll manufacturers scaling back, but I am hoping that the diversity that has been a mainstay of Integrity Toys continues....
