Another Twinn Boy on Saturday

Leave a comment

Another Twinn boy today. Like the other Twinns I’ve featured lately, he is 23 inches tall with an armature in his body that makes him poseable. This little boy has the Madison face mold with fair skin, brown hair, and blue eyes with a hint of gray. He also has a sprinkling of very light freckles.

He has a Denver era head and eyes, the period in My Twinn company history when the best quality dolls were being produced, but his body comes from the later Virginia era. Overall he’s a beautiful little boy.

I made the tee shirt he is wearing, but his pants and canvas shoes are from My Twinn.

The Madison face mold has the look of a younger child compared to some of the other Twinn faces. I’ve always liked this little boy.

A Twinn Girl on Busy Friday

Doctor appointments and stops at the grocery and drugstore took up a good part of the day today. I did get this shot of starlings up in the big pine tree before we left. The one in the middle with the tan head is a juvenile, still acquiring its adult plumage.

This evening I took another My Twinn doll down from the shelf for a few photos. This girl came from the Denver era of My Twinn back around 2000, when the best quality dolls were being made. She has the Ariel face mold, which is common and easily found but very sweet. She is wearing  original My Twinn clothes: top, jeans, socks, and shoes.

This little Ariel girl has long blonde hair and she did have green eyes. Over the years the green color has faded, not unusual for some doll eyes after around 16 years. I could change her eyes if I wanted to, but for now I’m leaving her as she is.

Another Twinn Doll on Rainy Sunday

Leave a comment

It didn’t rain all day–I took Max for a short walk today at the nearby community college–but when it wasn’t raining it was threatening to rain. I did get a fuzzy shot of a Red-shouldered Hawk through the front window this morning with early morning sun lighting it up from the east, but the clouds rolled in after that.

So here is another of my My Twinn dolls. This is another of the 23 inch dolls, but this one is a little boy and was made when the My Twinn company was located in Denver, where the best quality dolls were produced. He has the Helen face mold with fair skin, auburn hair and blue eyes. I added some freckles. He’s wearing a pair of My Twinn glasses.

I made his shirt and jeans, and his shoes are actually a pair of baby shoes. The 23 inch dolls have an internal armature that lets them stand and hold poses by themselves.

He doesn’t always wear the glasses. He’s holding the glasses here, showing off another pose.

My Twinn Doll on Friday

Leave a comment

I realized it’s been quite awhile since I featured any of my dolls, so today I got out one of my My Twinn dolls for photos. This is one of the 23 inch dolls, with vinyl head, lower arms, and lower legs, and a stuffed body with an armature. These dolls can stand alone and can hold many poses. My Twinn had many different face molds to choose from–this little girl has one of the Asian face molds called Berkeley. She was made when the My Twinn company was located in Virginia in 2003.

My Twinn had many choices of hair color and style, eye color, and skin color. This Berkeley has dark brown hair, brown eyes, and light tan skin. I removed her original eyes and gave her the eyes she has now, which I like much better. She is wearing a striped top and tennis shoes from My Twinn, and I sewed her elastic waist jeans.

One more of Berkeley. My Twinn has unfortunately gone out of business and no more new dolls are being produced, but used dolls–often in nice condition–can be found on ebay.

Last for today is one of the last photos I took of Sophie. I missed her a lot today, and I looked for photos of her from this spring. She looks happy out in the yard here.

Twinn Girl on Monday

This is the second My Twinn doll that I bought, chosen from the Friends page of My Twinn when they were in Denver and making their best quality dolls. (Friends were dolls that were already assembled and dressed, as opposed to the Custom dolls where the customer specified hair color and style, eye color, etc.)

Denika20160328_8

She has the Denika face mold, 04 tan/light brown skin color, black textured hair, and dark brown eyes. She is wearing the outfit she originally came in–shirt, pants, and vest. I’ve always loved her happy face.

Birds, Anole, and My Twinn Doll on Sunday

The Eastern Phoebe that hangs around our yard.

A little bluebird with a bug. The soft grayish color on her head means she’s a female–the males are a brighter blue.

One anole today, sitting on the rim of a tomato pot. Soon we’ll have one of our new tomato plants growing in that pot.

Anole20160228_93

This is one of my 23 inch My Twinn dolls. She has the Josie face mold, which is very uncommon and difficult to find–I was lucky to be able to add her to my collection. She has blonde hair in loose curls and hazel eyes.

My Josie is dressed in overalls and a tee shirt.

Twinn Boy on Monday

A My Twinn boy for today. This is 23 inch Micah and he has the Micale face mold, one of several Asian faces made in the early Virginia era of  the My Twinn doll company. He was a custom doll–I chose his face, his hairstyle, and his hair, eye, and skin colors from a variety of options.

Micah20151221_19

Micah was made at an interesting time in My Twinn history, after the company closed in Denver and then re-opened in Virginia. Micah is different from the Denver dolls–he’s just a bit shorter and smaller, as if his vinyl head, arms and legs were poured from slightly smaller molds. The vinyl is a little different too, with a slightly translucent look,  and his eyes are not the same as the eyes used by the Denver company.

Micah20151221_10

Denver produced the best quality dolls, but Micah has his own appeal and I’ve always liked him very much.
