Les Bonbons Circus/Picka-berry Circus Dolls
« on: Wednesday 11 August 2010, 08:45 am »
A friend of mine is searching informations about the dolls Bonbons Circus, which look like to SCC dolls...  ???





It seems that it exists a US version of the French ones... Someone to help me please ?  ;)

What cute clown dolls! Apparently they were by Fishel Toys Limited: http://trade.mar.cx/US73350639 (ignore that logo, I think it's a linking boo-boo). And the French ones are by Delavennat.

I've seen this one:

BattySparkles spotted one in this auction: Picka-berry Circus

Then there's this one:

Strawberrys for Everyone is the name of the forum. It should be the first result in a Google search for its name.

You know, I've registered for that Forum and never get accepted. Could you ask them about it? I registered as Zuse. I dunno... maybe it's similar to a spam name or something and gets rejected?

I let one of the Admin's know:

There are some people on a toy ID forum that are also fans of SSC. One of them tried to sign up before but never got accepted for some reason.

http://ghostofthedoll.co.uk/Forum/index.php?topic=830.0

These people are okay especially Zuse who is also a member at several other forums I visit.

Thanks for letting me know. We get over 200 spammers each and everyday, so it's hard to know if someone is real if their ID isn't Strawberry related, etc.  I hate that we've missed some people. Can you send my apologies? And perhaps let me know the user names they'll sign on with so Di and I can be on the lookout for them?

Are you going to use the same user names you use here? If so I'll just let her know that is what you will be using.

I understand completely! I help with the Kenner LPS forum and the spammers are ridiculous. I've accidentally deleted some people and I don't think that they every came back to retry. :(

There was a forum that used to be Strawberryland Town Square and switched over to a private forum for some reason. I signed up right away and was sent an email that I was rejected because no one knew me. I thought it was rude.  Anyway, hope this place accepts me.

No, I'm sure it's nothing like that there. Me and Serena go back and I still can't get in. :-P

Update from the Admin on SFE:

Quote from: Orange Blossom
hi, over a week ago I activated Zuse and Angel Bear. They haven't logged on yet, so I thought I'd let you know to maybe mention it to them as they may not have realized they were activated.  But actually I just checked now and Angel Bear was accidentally deleted again. But please encourage Zuse to sign on and Angel Bear to sign up I will activate him/her right away.

thanks!
