Basic Diane Evans from Tonner Doll

To my readers who have written wondering where I disappeared to...thank you for your concern. January is a pretty quiet month in doll world as manufacturers are preparing to unveil their new goodies at IDEX and Toy Fair. I was on vacation this past week. There's nothing like coming back home to a pile of doll boxes on the dining room table. That was fun!

Diane Evans is a gorgeous new doll in an adorable polka dot bathing suit. She has Friday Foster's head sculpt, brown eyes and raven hair. Her skintone is called Honey. She will be available late February at Tonner Direct in a limited edition of 500 for $109.99.  Pricey for a basic doll, isn't it? Some are already available for purchase; others are to reserve.

  1. Welcome back Terri!! =)

    Oh, I loved that Ann Harper outfit! Maybe I am becoming more of an outfit collector than a doll collector... does it make sense to you? =)

  2. @Ana: After a while it makes more sense to just buy fashions because the space for dolls keeps decreasing.

  3. Anne Harper and Patricia Holt are very fun, but their heads look way big in proportion to the bodies. if you are drawing the figure, eight heads high is normal, fashion illustration it's nine heads high. These girls are like 7 heads tall, maybe. Are all Tyler types the same ?

  4. @Sydney: That issue seems to be quite controversial on the boards. Neither doll appeals to me and I wonder if it's the size of their heads. Hmmm.

  5. I thought maybe my eye was really off. So I measured my Sydney (had to have a Sydney of course) and she is almost exactly 8 heads. So these girls are top heavy for sure.
