About the Out of the Box series of books:
The Out of the Box series is a casual visual reference for doll collectors and fans of the Fashion Doll Review blog. An affordable paperback collection, this series examines specific doll styles, sculpts, and collections in 90 pages of color photographs and descriptions. Fashion dolls are styled and dressed according to the book's theme. Resources and references are included.
Why should you care? Well, first I just about killed myself to finish the book before Barbie Convention. I should have a few copies for sale, if I can get them in time--look for Kathie's Fashion Dolls and the girl with short pink hair if you're interested in an autographed copy. (I just don't know what I was thinking with planning to finish the book after school was out for summer, LOL!)

Second, the retail price of the book is $20. From now through July 31, you can buy the book for just $15. Use coupon code PTUB5SGH when you check out, and you will save $5 off the cover price. That's less than the cost of a basic doll! (The coupon only works through CreateSpace.)

This book is now also available from Amazon. If you have prime shipping or if you are in Europe, this might be a better deal for you, so just hold tight. Plus, I'm hoping to provide a Look Inside preview of this book on there as well.

These books are printed and shipped on demand from CreateSpace--this allows me to print just the copies I need and not have a garage full of them. It's a really affordable way to go in the printing business. In fact, if you have a book you'd like to write, I can highly recommend their services!

Third, you'll know you're supporting this doll blog when you buy a copy of this book. I think you'll like it. In fact--I think you'll like it so much you might want to recommend it to a friend!


  1. Wow! This book is a must. Can't wait to read it.

  2. Will you be at the Barbie convention? If so, come and see me! :) I'd love to chat!

  3. Congrats on the double publication! I am TOTALLY green with envy. Both books are on next month's must have list - this month's budget, has gone, sigh, where else?

  4. Wow, I'd like to buy one from you at convention. Should I buy it now and pick up at convention?

  5. @Alison, I not coming this year. :( But I'll be there next year! :D My husband promised me we'll have a late honey moon so I can go to the Barbie Convention in New Orleans. Yey! But maybe you can come to the Paris convention or the Italian one. :)

    I'm writing now about this book on my blog. Thank you again for writing it!

  6. Great! I'll have some at convention. You can find me with short pink hair, or look for Kathie's Fashion Dolls in the sales room. I'll make sure she has some available. :)

  7. @Ada, I'll try to make it to New Orleans, then! Did you meet Kathie at the Italian Fashion Doll Show this past year? She and her husband were there--selling vintage Barbie. She is a regular contributor to this blog, too. I met Kathy Moreau at Tonner Doll, and should see her again at Barbie!


    If you are allowed, as soon as my book is posted on Amazon, you should post an affiliate link to it from your blog--I think you can then get paid a little to sell it, if you like. It will be available in Amazon (US) and Amazon (Europe) as well.

    Email me if you'd like! alison@fashiondollreview.com

  8. Yes, we met. They actually sat at my table with my husband and I. I stil have to email her and ask her for our pictures together. She's such a grat lady! And her husband also. :)

    I'll email you today about the book. Thank you! Kiss.

  9. I constantly spent my half an hour to read this webpage's posts every day along with a cup of coffee.
