mel-loves-marshaA doll designer’s adoration inspires the creation of a new doll.

There she was again—that face. I’d seen her many times, in many different situations and clothes, always playing as if she were someone else, always successfully hiding beneath a glamorous facade. But I always saw through her disguises to the person she really was. I always saw the real Marsha Hunt. Or did I?

aliceDollmaker Berdine Creedy is hoping to charm the American market with her ball-jointed beauties.

The doll world would be devastated if Berdine Creedy spoke differently. “My English is not that great and I have a funny accent,” says the South African teacher, who relocated to Florida in early 1996. “If not for that, I’d still be a school teacher. But the little ones, they can’t take my accent,” she says, laughing. But where some would see sour grapes and disappointment, Creedy has made sweet wine.

Sculpted by Donna RuBert, “Serenity,” 12 inches (seated), wears a luxurious sateen sea-green dress with an ornately embroidered netting overlay. Embellished by metallic silver thread and tiny seed pearls, the collar and sleeves have lettuce edging. Matching sea-green ballet slippers and a pretty headband complete her ensemble. “Serenity” has short soft-brown hair, handset green-gray eyes and loves the company of her bunny best friend. Charisma Brands Aims to Enchant and Attract with its Line of Play and Display Cuties

The term charisma implies a certain magnetic charm or appeal, which is exactly how many doll enthusiasts regard Charisma Brands. Beginning with the merger of L.L. Knickerbocker and Marian, Charisma made a historic move in 1991 by ap­proaching Marie Osmond to endorse a line of dolls for QVC. Osmond responded by actually designing the line instead, and in 1998, she and her husband and a group of investors bought the company, taking it to a new level. Since then the company has gone through mergers and transitions, but the core remains true to its initial ideals.

Here she is—the original “My First” Barbie from 1980.She Was as Child-Friendly as She Was Cute!

The “‘My First’” Barbie appeared on the doll scene in 1980 or 1981. Her box has the 1980 copy­right date, but that of­ten means the doll was not available for sale until the following year. Whatever the correct date, most mothers agreed it was about time such a Barbie came on the market.

Transforming Harry Potter
Written by Louise Fletcher   
Wednesday, 01 February 2006 00:00


Thanks to the magic of Robert Tonner, the world’s most famous boy wizard is now a collectible boy doll.

harry-and-his-friendsIn the magical world created by author J.K. Rowling, wizards and witches have several ways to change their appearance. There’s Polyjuice Potion for one; it takes a month to brew, but with it you can transform into someone else. Extremely skilled wizards and witches can learn to become an Animagus, and transfigure at will into an animal form. Alas, we Muggles (that’s nonmagical folk) have no such abilities. To transform, we usually have to rely on the “magic” provided by the local Halloween costume shop. But there is one other way: Follow the yellow brick road up to Hurley, New York, and the Tonner Doll Company. A wizard in his own right, Robert Tonner has the power to turn humans into dolls. Late last year, he unveiled his latest magical transformation— an amazingly lifelike doll of Harry Potter.

Brand New World

“Spätzchen” means “little bird” in German and also is used to mean “little girl.” Günzel shares that she likes to use the names of children she knows, “or will borrow my friends’ grandchildren’s names, or sometimes from books and stories I like to read.” The doll, an edition of 250 pieces, is priced at $790.The ever-evolving Hildegard Günzel forges ahead with a new look and a new medium. Her entrée into modern designs sparks excitement.

When Hildegard Günzel began to make an undeniable name for herself in the United States, back in the 1980s, her Germanic-sounding name, with its many syllables and alphabet soup appearance, was a tongue-twisting nightmare. Many folks wondered whether Günzel would anglicize her moniker, reduce its difficulty, and make it easier on the Yankee palate. True to herself and to her origins, Hildegard Günzel maintained that her public would come to embrace her lyrical works and her wordy first and last names. She was right. Today, her name rolls off the tongue; it has become synonymous with excellence, beauty and regality. When collectors talk about dolls that are ethereal and realistic, lovely and refined, they more often than not allude to Günzel.
