Anyway! Today's Shrunken Saturday doll is this little guy.
His name is John.
|This is much bigger than life size,so his rough face shows up.|
He's a Dolly Darling.
The Dolly Darlings were a series of tiny dolls made by Hasbro.
|He's wearing a Bratz Babies shirt. The other stuff is a mystery,but he was naked. I was lucky to find anything that fit him,because he's tiny.|
I've read that they are 4 1/2" tall, but I measured John at 4".
John is from a line called the 'Hatbox Dolls',because they came in round 'hat boxes',with clear plastic lids.
|His hair has streaky detailing.|
He was available in 1965.
He came wearing a sleeveless white shirt with a red tie, a blue and white checked sports coat with a crest on the breast pocket,and blue shorts. His blue knee socks and brown shoes are painted on.
|"Hello. My name is John. Who are you?"|
He was called John and his Pets.
|Nothing but sniffing from the rabbit. But John edges closer,being careful not to scare him.|
|"Please don't be scared.I like animals."|
|The rabbit comes further out of the gate. John stands very still.|
|Finally John is able to get very close. He stands still so the rabbit can sniff him and get to know him.|
He,and some of the girls, were available as paper dolls though.
Today was our first real snowfall of the winter.
This fence decoration has yellowed terribly.I think I may have to get a Tom Sawyer doll to paint it.
That's it for this week's Shrunken Saturday. See you tomorrow for another wintery doll.
