Madame Alexander Special Edition Neiman Marcus

Lil Find: Madame Alexander Special Edition

I have to admit that when my daughter was gifted a Madame Alexander doll, I had no idea that they were a big deal. I opened it up and thanked the giver for the cute doll. It wasn't until my mom and mother–in–law made a fuss about it that I realized what a sweet and generous gift it had been.

Apparently, the renowned Madame Alexander dolls are the cream of the crop, which is why it's not surprising that Neiman Marcus has its own special edition Madame Alexander doll tagged at a steep $150. But for people who collect these lil figurines, they might find this fashionista worth the price. Dressed up in silk and taffeta, this Jackie O. look–alike carries the commemorative 100th anniversary Neiman Marcus bag on her little plastic arm.

Would you buy one of these pretty lil things?

I am so asking my aunt to get this for me. She started giving me collectable dolls for my birthday when my sister was born. They are a fun way for little girls to decorate and then have fond memories later on when you pass them on to a new generation (which is what I have started to do but this one is waaayyy to cute for me to give up!!) FYI this aunt will not buy me anything that is for a adult so if she is going to keep on buying me dolls that cost too much I might as well get one I like!

Ok dolls creep me out. When I was growing up I HATED staying the night at my friend's house...her mom had a doll collection...all over the living room...and it always seemed like they were STARING at me...I couldn't ever sleep cause I'd have nightmares with those dolls!*shudder*

we had them as kids all the different country ones, but i wouldnt collect them now. Where do you put these things without looking like a complete cuckoo

My mother collected them as a child, and then I started collecting them when I was around 6 years old - I got one every year for a birthday. They still sit on a shelf at my parents' house and they are beautiful to look at (I collected the fairy tale collection). But the price of this one is crazy!! If you are ever in NYC, the Madame Alexander Doll Factory in Harlem offers tours (even birthday parties for kids) and I hear it is a great!

These dolls have never been appealing to me. But if my daughter is ever into these, I'd get her one (although not the $150 special edition version!!)

Oh, and FYI, the dolls I collected were not nearly as expensive as this special edition doll. I think this doll is gorgeous, though.

I've heard of kids getting them when a new baby is welcomed into the family. I think that's a nice tradition.

I grew up getting a new Madame Alexander doll for holidays and birthdays each year. The 8 inch dolls. It started out with just the figure skating dolls (since I skated), but soon I also received the different country and fairy tale dolls. My mom started a collection in her doll case and at last count, we had something like 50 or 60 or them. It was a fantastic and fun tradition for me and although it stopped years ago, I now have a nice collection to display or pass on. Yeah, not terribly practical for playing, but I still really liked it. Someday I'll move them to my house.

I don't really get why people would collect dolls let alone ones that kids can't play with.
