Wondering about wild grapes

Wondering what my wife found at the flea market.

Yesterday, I told you what I found at the flea market.  To be fair, I suppose I should also show you what my wife got.  My wife used to collect dolls.  At one time I would conservatively estimate her collection way over a thousand.  One day, she just loaded them all up and took them to a resale shop and practically gave them away.  Every now and then, she buys herself another doll or two at garage and yard sells or at the flea market.  Yesterday, she found a couple she liked at the flea market.

First, let me show you a few that she has found lately:


Then yesterday, she found these two.
 

I don't know what they are called or if they do anything.  There is a place for a battery, so they must talk or something.  I am more than a little ignorant when it comes to dolls of all kinds.  My lovely wife is the only doll I need.  So now, you all have a great day, you hear?

  1. My Mom used to teach doll making, but they were porcelain. I don't recognize the face on these at all!

    I'll see if Mom knows anything about them!

  4. Now... wasn't Sparkle the daughter of B.O. Plenty and Gravel Gertie? (guess that's not socially correct these days, huh?)... who were "characters" (in more ways than one) in the Dick Tracy (and Sam Ketchum) comic strip? I'm jealous that I never had a Sparkle Plenty doll. I've never seen those Bratz... guess I missed out on that, too.

    1. The Odd Easy, my wife says she knew about all those and that one company sued another because they both made the same doll. I have no idea about all there is to know about dolls. They just ain't my thing. . .
