Why put energy into this line when we Tiny Kitty/Simone Rouge collectors have been left hanging high and dry? The Tiny Kitty body should have been reworked to create more flexibility and build on an already established base of collectors. Get rid of the pigeon toed stance. Make it so that she can sit like a 'lady.'
Bring back the dressing table and dress shoppe. We're here and we're waiting.
There is little demand for an average 13" fashion doll as long as there are, at the cheaper end, the Barbie-Silkstone crowd, the Dynamite Girls and at the higher end, the Fashion Royalty and Poppy Parker dolls - all about 12".
The Revlon name lends nothing to these dolls. They have nothing to do with the vintage reproduction Revlon dolls which will be reviewed in another post.
I would like to have seen Tonner do a 12" Ellowyne doll. Ellowyne's clothes are fabulous and fun and like nothing else on the market. She already has a huge collector base. That could have grabbed a big part of the 1/6 scale market. Are you listening out there?
Here are pictures of the 13" basic Revlon dolls which come with three different colors of rooted hair and retail for $59.99 each.
There is a wigged version. One doll plus three wigs. Price $99.99
There are four separate outfits and two sets of 3 pair of shoes.
Outfits range from $79.99 to $99.99 and the shoe trios are $39.99 each.According to the website this collection will be made to order and there will be only one production run.
That is a good idea.
