Including a dynamic, motivating back-story, City Girls are freshly matriculated from college and are ready to take on the world and follow their dreams.  In addition to her career, each girl has strong community values and a charitable heart.  The genius of this toy line is that it is geared toward the beginner collector.  So, it aims to please the young and the….old?  No that’s not right.  All ages!  :D  Visit www.tonnertoys.com to learn more about these charming ladies!

Okay, so now you’ve seen the dolls, and you’re saying, “We want to know MORE!”.  You GOT it!

The toys…I mean…gals are 15.75″ tall (16″ in heels!) and they have 12 points of articulation.  They come with painted facial features and have quality rooted Saran hair.  The body is obviously completely different proportionally from any Tonner Doll bodies, but that’s okay:  they’re their own thing!  A dear collector of ours who has some City Girls for review has played around with different clothing swaps, and he’s found that Tyler, Ellowyne and Antoinette-sized clothes don’t work (Thanks Michael, much love!).  However, some of the LittleMissMatched clothes DO!  We say that with a tiny bit of caution though, because of course the bodies are different proportionally and whatnot.  But trying this stuff out is half the fun of toys and dolls!

Also….here’s a special little photo showing how the City Girls body compares to a 13″ fashion body, a Tyler and an American Model, just for fun.

And here’s another photo comparison from My Dolls Are My Models on Flickr (AWESOME! – again, thanks Michael), comparing City Girls with a Prudence, Moxie, Monster High, etc, so check it out!  [This just in:  My Dolls Are My Models, Michael, has just completed his City Girls video review - he's kindly included outfit swapping comparisons, too!  Check it out!]

Regarding Shoes:  The City Girls have SUPER high arches, and will really be best off with their own City Girl shoes.

In case you didn’t get the memo, City Girls are NOW IN STOCK and shipping!  Click here to shop City Girls on www.tonnerdoll.com!   It should also be noted if you want to pick up the sweet blonde basic Brook-Lynn, she is exclusively available at www.fao.com.

We sure hope you like this new line, and we’d like to wish a great big congratulations to Jason Corrao-Reilley and Robert Tonner on a successful launch today – Kudos!

Whew!  That was a whole lot of information!  Well, play on brothers and sisters, play on!

  1. I can’t wait to own a City Girl! Where can they be purchased? I read ToysRUs is going to have them in 2013. Is this true?

    • Hey Marjorie!

      Thanks so much for the comment, we’re so so happy you like the new line :D Toys R Us will not be carrying City Girls, but you can buy City Girls online at http://www.tonnerdoll.com/city-girls and/or fao.com and right off the shelves at FAO stores (they’re also in the FAO catalog). There are links to everything right in the blog post. Thanks again!

  2. I just bought Billy and the three outfit sets today! Can’t wait until they arrive! I have lots of food props that I can use to display with her, so the back story will work out great!

    Thanks for the doll comparison photos! They are very helpful! I always like when my dolls can share clothing with others. I have all the Little Miss Match outfits, so I will have to try them on her to see how they look. I’m hoping I can also tweek some patterns that I have for other dolls so I can make some clothing for her!

    Love that you made the outfit sets so there are lots of mix and match capabilities! Looking forward to having fun playing with her. Hope to buy her a friend soon too!

    • Hello Maria!

      Thanks so much for the comment! We are super pumped about this line, and are so grateful it’s been so well-received! We sure hope you’ll share pics of your new dolls on our Facebook page when she arrives! :D

      You’re welcome for the photos! A brand new line always brings out comparison questions, so it’s good to have a resource for people to check.

      Thanks again Maria!

      Best,

      Joanne @ Tonner

  3. When is Maudlynne McCobb going to be released? I think she is great and can’t wait to see her in the vinyl! Loving this line!
