A new to me Marley Tonner doll has arrived - 'Violin First Chair' she will join my other Marley doll
Well being musical how could I not?
I quite like these dolls - I like the pre adult shaped body - not young children, but not adults either and that appeals to me. I have had my 'journey' with collecting adult dolls - Palitoy Tressy years ago now and all but a couple of that collection have now left for other homes.
I first discovered these dolls by chance when browsing Dolls 'Ending Soonest' on Evilbay - I saw the most unusual and strangely very appealing doll, who I discovered was 'Agnes Dreary' - I just had to have her. Maybe I recognised something in her...
Well I then discovered she had a brother 'Viktor Dreary' Maestro - a musical theme? Well of course he had to come to live here.
Somehow Agnes doesn't seem as pleased to see him as one would have imagined...
Marley was next in a wonderful Agnes Dreary outfit.
That was it for my little Tonner collection...or so I thought until I saw this wonderful Agnes in 'Minor Conundrum'
Well what a superb outfit - just had to have her!
So now I have two Agnes Dreary and two Marley dolls - plenty for me to be going on with. Perhaps after my School Uniform commission I will make each of them a uniform as well as they are upper school age.
