Kelly Club: Birthday Party 2006
Yet a new box design.
The rounded top and slanted sides are the same as before, but this box is
enclosed in a sort of bag type upper part, with a handle, as well as
cardboard sides, inherited from the Kelly Club 5 Bunch boxes. All of the
girls originates in that set (more below).
The Birthday Party girls come carrying a heart shaped balloon each to
celebrate a birthday. Each box have the doll inside as the main person of
the event as illustration at the top. The dolls are Kelly/Shelly, Tori and
Deidre in this group. I had to get Tori, for her red hair, brown eyes and
freckles, but more to it, her name, as she is a new character. Sadly, I
never bought Shelly or Deidre when they were in stores, but have found them
loose and very played with condition later. Not sure what happened to
Deidre's balloon. Looks like it has been close to a heat source or
something. It's just discolored on one side and of course I forgot to turn
the balloon, but that's of no concern for ID purpose :)
This set matches the Birthday Bunch from last
year (©2005) and Kelly and Deidre is exactly the same doll, with the same
screening and hairdo, but Deidre is wearing the outfit Kerstie has in that
set. Tori here, is the same doll as the
Bunch Melody with a small change of name and a simpler cut dress. The back of the box shows the Melody version from the bunch, as well
as the round balloons the bunch dolls came with, as opposed to these girls' heart
Erica provided the photo of her dolls to show further down.

Dolls and photos all belong to me, unless otherwise noted.
