by Alison Rasmussen



Limited to 300 guests, Tonner Convention 2013 is themed Age of Innocence this year. The dates are Thursday May 16, 2013 through Sunday, May 19, 2013.

Here are the details, just in from the registration site:
Welcome to the gilt, glamour and intrigue of The Age of Innocence—the Tonner Doll Company 2013 Collector’s Convention!  We’ll explore times past both real and imaginary and from whimsical childlike innocence to sophisticated elegance.  This magical weekend begins on May 16th and will be filled with honest-to-goodness merriment--and you just may have the time of your life! 
Robert Tonner and staff have packed this whirlwind weekend full of delightful fun.  We’ll visit candy land and Dr. Seuss; we’ll time travel to the Gatsby-esque elegance of the 1920’s and the swinging sixties, and meet in the grand ballroom for the enchanting Carousel Ball for dinner, dessert, and dancing! 
And let’s not forget the Wilde side of things, where the absence of innocence prevails!  This year’s Wilde Imagination event is included with your Tonner Convention registration, and the dolls will be available for purchase.   Effanbee’s little sweetheart will be making an appearance too, resplendent in her wide-eyed glory, and she’s as innocent as a lamb! 
Each attendee will receive two 16” fashion dolls, one being a splendid souvenir doll—one of the most exquisite to date!   We will also feature a tremendously stocked sales room, flourishing favors, an impressive OOAK Charity Auction, and the stupendous Raffle Room  at a new and improved time - This year, we will be holding the raffle BEFORE the Carousel Ball banquet, leaving MORE time for the banquet event!  In addition, registration includes 3 meal events and a dessert event!  
The cost is $399 and $50 will reserve your seat. The convention will be held at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center (in Lombard, IL, outside of Chicago), and rooms are $139 per night.
