Today my Sunflower Tommy arrived! I didn’t see him when he was released in 2007. He must not have come to my local toy stores. I first saw him on the web and I really wanted him… but at a good price! Many of my fellow bloggers have this doll. Fellow bloggers feel free to post the link to you Sunflower Tommy!
So here he is out of the box. He has a great little outfit! He wears a blue shirt with green trim with a skateboarder on it and khakis with blue stitching.
And blue shoes and…
They did two other issues of this Tommy but they were in sets that included other dolls! Kelly/Chelsea collectors refer to the sunflower issue dolls and No Neck dolls because they have a short neck.
Here is a close-up on his face! He has a sweet face and great eyes! I love the bowl hair cut on Tommy dolls. It is my favorite for blonde hair boy dolls. They also used this face mold for the Asian Sunflower doll. The face paint and complexion of these dolls gives them different looks!
This Asian doll is on a larger body.
There are a variety of Kelly/ Chelsea size bodies. Then there are the SIS Kids.
Renee added for scale!
Kelly size Tommy added for scale.
Maybe it the hair cut or the short neck or becuase Mattel just didn't do one, but I wanted him on a taller body. Blonde hair dolls are in constant danger of being the next project around here because they are so easy to acquire.
I’m calling him August! Because he looks like a kid in August trying on last year’s school clothing! Yes, It is time for some new school clothes! Say hello to Auggie!
