Au Milieu de l’Hiver Tyler

by Alison Rasmussen


The name of this gorgeous doll translates to, "In the middle of winter." She is a limited edition of just 100 pieces, and will be offered for Kathy Moreau's Boutique Museum in Paris, France for an Open Day luncheon on October 12, 2008. There are absentee packages available. To order, contact Kathy at kaemkathy@aol.com. She has great customer service, from my personal experience. Her orders ship quickly, via DHL, and you will receive your order within a week. You might want to check her other in-stock items, (click on the hot pink Archives button on the lower right once you enter) to see if there are any other items you "need." You will need to pay in Euros with Paypal or with a bank transfer. For more info, you can also check out Tonner's New Releases page.

The doll reminds me of a macabre version of the Doll of the Year American Model, Winter Solstice, only with Tyler 2.0 face. Keeping her platinum with gray-blue eyes and larger red lips has given her a true wintery feel. I love this doll's edgy, avant garde look, with the oversized hat and super curvaceous silhouette. She'd make a great addition to the Charles Dickens character trio, or just alone as a seasonal doll. I think I'll display her year-round in sunny San Diego.
