I think there's a hole in the play doll market that is begging for a release like this. We have a wide variety of $20 fashion dolls to choose from (Barbie, Monster High, Bratz, Disney Store princesses), and you can find plenty of collectable fashion dolls for $100 and over (Tonner, Pullip, Integrity, Sybarite, Momoko, etc), but the intermediate market is sparse. As the holidays approach, what do you get for that careful young doll collector who is ready for something special? Or what do you get for yourself when the budget is tight and a regular Tonner doll is out of reach? Maybe these dolls are the answer.
On November 9th, the long-awaited email hit my inbox, telling me that not only were the dolls in stock, it was a Free Shipping Friday! Twist my arm, Mr. Tonner.
