My current Tonner wish list

by Alison Rasmussen

Before I begin this post, I need to state that I am neither a retailer, nor am I currently selling any Tonner brand products on this website. I am not associated with Tonner Doll Company. All images and dolls are copyright Tonner Doll Company, and I am using them solely as a collector.
Oh my goodness, my wish list is getting longer every day. My favorite dolls tend to be ones in large flowing skirts and fancy outfits. Click on the pictures to go to Tonner's website and check these dolls out for yourself.
  • From Memoirs of a Geisha--a wonderful book and film--I love the sold out 2006 Spring Dance Sayuri. She even has gray/blue eyes like in the movie. The details on Robert Tonner dolls just astound me.
  • The Queens of Spades, Diamonds, Clubs and Hearts. These are from the Alice in Wonderland collection. I am an avid (but not very talented) card player--mostly hearts--and the Queen of Spades has special meaning for me in real life. These dolls are just gorgeous representations of taking the points I don't mean to take. Plus, it's a matched set.
  • The Wizard of Oz collection dolls are gorgeous as well. I love the new Wicked Witch of the East and the Blue Skies Glinda. I mean, look at the Wicked Witch's stockings and shoes, and Glinda's hair. It's just divine.
  • Swept Away is another doll in the Theatre de la Mode collection that I love. Also made in 2006, this is a limited edition of 1000. This doll has gorgeous modern clothing!
I think this is all for now. My list is much longer--the more dolls I see, the more get added to my list. I have to say, though, I probably shouldn't be spending my grocery budget on these dolls!
