Dance Class Howleen Wolf was the first new doll to arrive at my house in months. There was another doll that I tried to buy first, but I had some difficulties (more on that in a future blog post).
I had wanted Howleen since she came out in a Target exclusive sister pack with her sister Clawdeen earlier this year. All of my local Target stores sold out, and that set was selling for outrageous (for me) prices on eBay. I just waited and hoped that Howleen would be popular enough to be released on her own. I'm glad that I waited.
I think that she's cute with her pink hair and attitude. Okay granted, I did have a failure to bond with Clawdeen, and it will probably be the same with this one, but I'm hoping to find a use for her. I had something specific in mind when I bought her, but I don't know if that's going to work out.
And the ears on this one... I had a puppy once that was a German Shepherd mix. She had floppy ears when she was very young, but gradually over time, her ears began to straighten out. Around the time of her first heat, she had one straight ear and one ear that was still a little floppy, just like Howleen. I'm a little grossed out that this doll with her human characteristics reminds me of my puppy. I'm kind of amused by it, also.
Awwwww, the happy family together at last. Clawd Wolf was freed from his cardboard prison the same day as Howleen, and Clawdeen's head was reunited with her body long enough to take a few family photos.
Howleen's body is shorter than Clawdeen's, and shaped a little differently.
