Hey Gang,I am continuing my year of the Children with this post!
One of my favorite dolls that I haven't posted about is Takara Jenny's
boyfriend Tom doll. I have had him awhile(at least 10 years) but why
I haven't posted him, I don't know! I guess it is because I have seen
other peoples post of him and I either thought I did or didn't feel the
need to until now.
He was one of the first dolls I saw with dreadlocks! He came out in 1992.
I purchased him back in the late 2000 and I think he was about 45 dollar when
I got him on eBay. I got all my had to find dolls on eBay back then. I didn't
know any better! He came from abroad and it took a while for him to arrive.
I was pleased because he looked just like the pictures.
Tom in the box!
Back of the box shows him in a confrontation!
This face looks too sweet for that!
The clothes seem so over sized for a doll with such a small body. I had to find
him something different. My IT males are wearing his pants. I've put the jacket on
I love this hoodie on any male...no change that...any doll.

or Ken. I have included ken for scale.
Answer to the Ken and JLS question.
a different look! You can see his slight body.
I just love the wind in my hair!
He has thin legs and small feet.
Tom feet vs Ken feet!
He doesn't have click knees but they are pose able.
So is his arm some what.
they have long necks they photo better than ones with shorter necks like JLS
His name is Khaleel.
He is kind of an old soul and gravitates toward thinks someone his age normally doesn't.
He loves to DJ. It is the way he expresses himself artistically.

when he was eight. That created his love for the oldies. He like Smokey Robinson,
Marvin Gay, Sam Cooke and The Temptations. He has the complete collection of
Nat King Cole.
Also rap and hip hop.
He can DJ any kind of party!
I just love my lights from the Dollar Store.
My favorite shot!
I had fun photographing him and using somethings I have been meaning to photo!
I'll wear a suit at weddings and formal affairs.
I'll introduce his family later.
