There’s nothing sadder than a doll ‘collection’ filled with boxes. Even if you ignore the fact that those pristine boxes are coating the dolls within with acid and slowly destroying them, the true beauty and quality of a doll can only be appreciated when loose. Inside these pages you can see the good, the bad, and the downright weird things about the dolls I’ve deboxed. So come take a look, and remember- it’s what’s inside that counts.
I started these reviews in 1998 to share with the world the amazing and silly things I found when I deboxed my dolls. I taught myself the most basic html from online tutorials and laid the dolls directly on my scanner to get the images. Those first 54 Liberations have been brought over in their original low resolution glory. Starting with Liberation 55, you’ll notice an amazing difference in image quality. Going forward, I’ll continue to bring you reviews of both collectible and play line dolls in gorgeous high resolution.
I have been collecting and deboxing dolls since 1991. While my collecting habits continue to change and evolve, I’m still drawn to the beautiful as well as the weird, the whimsical, and the just plain silly. I hope you enjoy your visit!
