Doll People Are The Greatest! Look at my new Goodies

A few months ago, I saw the cutest red haired, freckled face Tommy boy.  You can see him here.  I asked Blue_Winks who he was.  She promptly told me he was the little boy in the 3 piece international set.  A few weeks later she contacted me and told me she had an extra little boy and that she wanted me to have him.  Isn't that sweet? 

Well he arrived today, with a couple of surprises.

His name is Garrett.  He is named after his previous owner's son.

She also included the little Spanish girl from the set because she too was a duplicate.  Blue_Winks is a major collector of Kelly and Tommy dolls.  You can see them on her Flickr photostream.

This was a total surprise!  You guys know how much I love my Fashion Avenue.  Now I just have to figure out who will get this cute ensemble.

I will say it again, doll people are the greatest people in the world!


  1. That was really sweet of Blue_Winks. Congratulations on your blessings from her.


  2. I love his red hair, what a cutie and so is the matching outfit. The doll community is full of really great people. :)

  3. That's a really nice gift you received. He's one of my faves so much so he has a twin brother. Imagine the trouble they get in at times..LOL. That outfit is one of my faves as well. I think I may have dressed 3 or 4 girls in it. Mind you I have 4 sets of it since I do have quads. I can't wait to see who you decide gets to wear it :O)

  4. Thanks everyone. I am thankful for all the wonderful blessings that have come my way.

    Dolllz4moi - You have a serious case of dupliicatitis. You need to see a doctor about that! You are the first doll person I know of to have quads. And you dress them all alike, too. Wow.

  5. Loving your new gifts. How cute. What a blessing indeed. Can't wait to see what you do with them.

  6. How sweet! Doll friends are the best!

  7. I also have such a Tommy doll. He is really very-very nice. I bought my Tommy on eBay, but we also have those sets in Moscow stores. I just didn't want to buy the whole set.

  8. Dukasha - I never paid any attention to the dolls in the set. I think I automatically assumed they were all girls. At the time that it came out, I really wasn't into buying more Kelly dolls, so I completely overlooked it.

  9. Those international Kelly/Tommy sets are interesting. There are three of them and at least two consist of a boy and two girls. I'm not sure about the third one. I saw the black doll from it listed as Tommy, but he/she is wearing earings and something like a dress, though he/she is African and African clothes may look strange for us.
    As far as I know, this red-headed Tommy is the only red-headed Tommy Mattel ever made. Well, really there is another one, but he is a lemon-head and I don't like lemon-heads at all. But usually I like red-headed dolls, especially kids, and I was hunting for this Tommy for a rather long time. Now I'm happy to have him. I also like the Spanish girl from the set, but I have too many Kelly dolls and other small dolls already... Though I still want to buy a Germany Kelly doll from the other "Friends of the World" set, but I never see her without her set on eBay... She has blond hair, but brown eyes, it's a rather rare eye color for blond dolls.
