I'm sure everyone realizes that, if we all went out and bought all the dolls that we thought were pretty, we'd go broke so bad that we would have to start having AA meetings for dolls. So what guidelines do you have for yourself before you commit yourself to a good 4-5 months or so worth of paying off something? I haven't bought my first yet, so to remedy that I made a wishlist. At one point it was 61 dolls, and I only remembered about 20 or so of them. So I started making myself go through these steps: 1. Is it pretty? Do I like the facial structure? 2. Do I actually want it? 3. Is there another doll on my wishlist that I like more and kind of looks like this one? 4. Can I see myself actually playing with it and changing its clothes? Is it actually a doll that I'll carry around and interact with? Is it a doll that I'll never let sit and collect dust? 5. Do I want it enough to spend [insert huge amount of money into here]? And thus my wishlist slowly went down to 30, then 20, then 11. It was hard, but generally the dolls got kicked off the list by step 4 and 5. So I wanted to ask everyone: how do you decide on which dolls to buy? How do you choose which dolls to sacrifice, and which dolls to keep? Doll standards? Personal criteria? What?
