Designer Dolls Today  
Well here in Toronto things were pretty civilized. Although i wasn't told the correct door to enter at 5am I was about 20 something in the line. What pissed me off was that this family of Chinese ppl all wanted 5 of each the dolls. The daughter (26) had to keep telling her parents what to ask for. In the confusion they thought they were getting all 5 each which burned me for a Pocahontas so I just got Rapunzel and Tiana. Turns out they misunderstood and the father only got 4 of the 5. They were obviously going to resell them. Anyways I will try online tomorrow for a Pocahontas.

I understand that you're frustrated, and I'm sorry you didn't get all the dolls that you wanted. But could you please not state that the people were Chinese as if it had anything to do with them buying dolls to resell and keeping you from getting Pocahontas? You probably didn't mean anything by it, but it makes me uncomfortable.

Don't feel bad
sadly, I have that issue as well in san francisco!

it's just not really right!, but don't get offended completely, you are different then what they are! because you have one thing we all love about you and its being an ACTUAL FAN of those princess. I felt sad for this because not only they are "trying to make a profit" but also (insert race of class) people are trying to make a profit, i mean for this kind of event, its like the newest way to bootleg dvd. I really am going to buy those dolls as well since I missed my chance to obtain aurora and pocahontas v_v.

Remember even though you feel uncomfortable we still love you because we know you would'nt do such a thing! its just hard for "certain" people who finally found a way to break peoples hearts by making "get rich quick"!
(sorry, i cannot find the pencil option so I had to delete the comment and start over, sorry again if I double post)

Lucky! My mom was at the Toronto one too (Eaton Centre I assume?) and complained of the same problem, she was unable to get Tiana for my sister though. :\ We're probably going to have to try ebay for the dolls since I, my mom, and my dad are all working today and won't have access to the internet at that time to try ordering.

I'm sorry i wasn't trying to be racist or anything but like I said it was obvious they had no idea what was even going on and they were just buying them to resell. I spoke to the wife of a guy ahe3ad of me in the line and he said several people who pretended to be their for their kids and to not know each other all left with the 5 dolls laughing and got in the same vehicle discussing ebay. And of course there are lots of ads in the GTA on Kijiiji for the sets of dolls.
