Our 2,000th Photo
Here is Tiny Kitty shared by Jose Spain on Doll Duels, and she happens to be our 2,000th photo upload, and such a beautiful one. Tiny Kitty happens to be pretty popular on Doll Duels even though she is a past Tonner Doll line, in fact some have been emailing that she needs her own category and this is something we are looking into. Currently she can be found in Fashion Inspired Other. Jose Spain you upload such gorgeous photos – any doubts just go to Doll Duels and type the name in the search box. As most of you know Doll Duels has been spectacular we just celebrated our 1,000,000th duel – congratulations Wendy Potts on winning the Dazzling Tyler Wentworth Giveaway – in fact we are already at 1.3 million duels as we speak. But the 2,000th photo is even more special because these are the photos of dolls and figures you cherish.
Tiny Kitty Love
Because not everyone know Tiny Kitty we should take a moment out to introduce this now archived doll. I turned to Michelle at Wilde/Tonner for details and she sent this from the 2004 catalog along with some pics (below):
In a make-believe time and a tiny place, Tiny Kitty opens up her dress shop, which boasts the most beautiful clothing and accessories. Always the height of elegance, Kitty wears her highly detailed ensembles with geat feminine flair. Now collectors and fashion doll enthusiats can enjoy the signature vintage style of Tiny Kitty Coller a 10″ hard plastic minature of the 18″ favorite…
Kitty began 18″ and then came out in 10 inches. Michelle adds this great personal detail about the birth of Kitty fashion itself:
“It’s actually very special, Kitty was brought to life out of Robert and his love with his grandmother and period clothing, she had a dress shoppe I believe…and well old gloves, vintage hats, that time period are stuck really in his mind’s eye, we even did a Dress Shoppe, incredible piece…many years ago…”
And now some snaps from mid-year 2003. Tiny Kitty came in a hatbox gift set and this wonderful bridal costume:
Snaps from the 2004 Catalog:
At Tonner we are actively working on the Archive, as you all know, and one of the things we are concentrating on is a way for everyone to have access to our past catalogs, these little snap shots are just that a quick glimpse back.
In the bigger picture it seems fitting that Tiny Kitty makes our 2,000th photo share on Doll Duels, the new coming in touch and reaching back to the old, bringing it forward. Doll Duels has been fantastic thanks to all of your enthusiasm and great photos. What it really is about is sharing what you love.
