LittleMissMatched dolls and the new Tonner Toys
The very first offering will be the 15" tall (39cm) LittleMissMatched dolls, which at first will be sold through Toys"R"Us stores and through the Tonner Direct web site beginning October 2011, unless the timeline changes. The dolls are vinyl/plastic with thickly-rooted hair, and bending elbows and knees as well as shoulder and hip joints. The clothes are brightly-colored and based on real little girl clothing from the LittleMissMatched company, which partnered with Tonner Toys for the purposes of creating the doll line.
The photos I've included with this post are of the very first doll released from the new line. This particular doll was released as a QVC exclusive gift set in September 2011 and is the only doll in the line available as of this writing. The dresses you see here are not the clothes she came with; she was re-dressed for the photos.
My only two whines: The red dress the QVC doll came with stained her shoulder a little bit. I've Photoshopped the red staining out of the pics, so no point in straining your eyes trying to see the staining there. LOL. Also, the sleeves on one of her extra shirts were a little too tight to fit over her hands. These seem to be problems that can be corrected at the factory, so I remain hopeful that the quality of the main-line dolls will be good. Other than these flaws, I am very pleased and really look forward to seeing the rest of the line released.
