Friends as you know I’m a big fan of Mudpuppy products and have been fortunate to be able to work with them. You might remember my finger puppet princesses and flip-draw ballerinas from a little while ago.
And now they just came out with their new fall line which debuts my I Heart NYC Magnetic figures. I’m a paper doll fanatic (have been all my life) and have loved Mudpuppy’s series of magnetic figures for sometime so I was thrilled to work on these. Oh and not to mention I love fashion and NYC is one of my favorite places on earth (Jon and I lived there the first three years of our marriage) so this was loads of fun.
I had such a fun time coming up with various NYC personalites: uptown, downtown, east side, west side, business, punk rocker, fashionista, art ball, Greenwich village, Brooklyn, etc. and the clothing to go along with.
When these showed up in the mail, I have to admit that I had to sneak away for, oh about a half an hour, to play with these gals. I felt like I was transported back to my own childhood where my sisters and I would draw countless numbers of paper dolls, create lives and personalties for them, and then play with them for hours and hours. I would dream of creating these for other’s to enjoy when I grew up and now that dream has come true!
