Webisode 3: Monster High

Here's a special treat, one week early! For October (and late September) you guys get a Webisode! We're sure all of you have seen Monster High dolls in the stores and online and in blogs, now you get to learn a little about them... more than a month ahead of Halloween. A dual purpose episode! Watch as Becca unboxes Elle Eedee, while Becca and Lindsey discuss the aesthetics, creation, evolution, and future of Mattel's Monster High franchise. Special thanks to MommyandGracieShow "The Doll Hunters" for being a primary source for their interview with Garrett Sander at NYCC 2013. Would you like more video episodes of Ningyo BINGO?

Episode 7: What's the Deal with Cerberus Project and Delf?

On November 16, 2011 there was a mild panic in the hobby, as the Luts Delf line of sculpts were discontinued.  As some of these sculpts had always been available as standard unlimited releases, what led to this?  Learn about Cerberus Project, Fairyland, Luts, Feeple and Delf in this episode!

Episode 6: I'm on the Inside, and Enjoying Coffee in the Dollhouse.

This is part two of two of a massive look into how dolls and doll collectors are portrayed in various forms of media.  This part focuses on how inside groups cover ABJD in the media, both for people inside and outside of the hobby.  Best enjoyed with part one, so get ready for a long ride!
