This is a 'recent acquisition' that I actually got online, not from a yard sale or thrift store. He was such a good price I couldn't pass him up. He's Tonner's Ron Weasley from the Harry Potter series of dolls.
He has the same body as Tonner's Marley,Agnes Dreary and Patience dolls.
I love his Hogwarts uniform. The clothes are well made too.
|The sweater, or, since he's British, the jumper, (Over here a jumper is a dress.), closes in the back with snaps.|
|His tie is askew. I had trouble keeping it straight, but I think that's in character for Ron.|
|Must be a windy day at Hogwarts.|
His little shoes lace up!
|I LOVE these shoes!|
|Rupert as he looked in the first H.P. movie|
|Slightly older Rupert.|
|All you Asa Butterfield fans out there, customize your dolls now.|
The hair is a bit too long and thick though. He would look a lot more like movie-Ron with a bit of a hair cut.
|I might give him a hair cut.|
The wig on this doll is really soft.
I love the skin tone on these Tonner dolls. It's very realisitic looking.
The Ron character in the books was wonderful. He was funny. He was probably my favourite character.He had a lot more to do in the books than the character did in the movies. In fact, as the movies went along they gave Ron less and less to do until he almost disappeared completely. It was such a shame, because a lot of the humour went with him. (Not to mention one of the most horrifying and sad scenes in any Harry Potter book, which takes place in the Ministry of Magic and involves a tank and a 'brain'.) Another reason the deleting of Ron was such a pity is that Rupert Grint was such a talented child actor. I would have bet money that he would have been the one of the main three that would have had a career beyond 'Harry Potter'. He hasn't been nearly as popular or busy as the other two though. I suppose he might have if he had been considered as attractive as Daniel Radcliff and Emma Watson.(And for all you people out there 'shipping' Harry and Hermione, just...stop it.) Rupert has made quite a few films and recently made his well received Broadway debut in "It's Only a Play".
