Have mercy!  That was some Wilde fun!  Everyone arrived at the event dressed in their finest Ellowyne or Evangeline-inspired garb, and we had a hoot of a good time.  There were 5 (yep that’s right!) centerpiece dolls, and let me tell you:  they were gorgeous!  People were simply swooning.  I mean, it was a scramble at each table because everyone wanted the centerpiece. Alright, alright:  I’ll get on with the details.

Oh, I know.  Those are some seriously lovely gals.  The 3 from the Ello line do have inset eyes, in case you were wondering.  Simply delightful.  After oohing and aaahing for a while over the amazing dolls, we got right down to it.  Back by popular demand was the Audience Participation program (you know, kind of like the Rocky Horror Picture Show?), which was a very unique and fun take on Oz the Great and Powerful.  I’ll sum it up by saying there were squirt guns given to the audience and ponchos given to Team Tonner.  I’m pretty sure mine had a big red bullseye on the back….  Anyway, what’s a little water, right?  NoooI’m melting……….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Haha!

Tonner Targets... I mean, Staffers.. :D

This was all great fun.  BUT the absolute highlight of this brunch event was the introduction to a BRAND NEW DOLL COLLECTION for Wilde Imagination.  Prepare to fall in love:  Meet Sad Sally!  She’s a 7″ Resin Darling with changable eyes and hair.  Sad Sally is… well,… sad.  Her parents are two famous actors (who shall not be named), and whenever they host their infamous soirees, Sally sneaks into the coat room and snips the buttons off of the guest’s jackets. Ha ha! Sad Sally is rather sentimental, so she collects those buttons, and hides them away in a sad little shoe box underneath her bed.  OK now you’ve heard the cute quirky story, now behold the darling little Sad Sally, creation of the doll mastermind, Joe Petrollese:
