Twinn Boy on Monday

Leave a comment

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.


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.


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


Twin Twinns on Tuesday


My Twinn 23 inch dolls had dozens of face molds, multiple skin, hair, and eye colors, and eyebrows and lips that were individually painted. So Twinns–custom ordered Twinns especially, with the client specifying the details–are generally one of a kind dolls.

But sometimes My Twinn did make a number of dolls with the same face mold and coloring. These boys are twin Twinns with the Michelle face mold. They actually came as girls with long brown hair and blue eyes, but I removed their original wigs and eyes and replaced them with red boy’s wigs and dark green eyes. I painted freckles too. I’ve always liked these little guys.


Their eyes are very dark green and look brown from a distance. I think you can see more of the actual green color in this closer photo.






More My Twinn Babies

Recently I’ve shown several My Twinn Babies (or Toddlers, as the company was also calling them), and today I have two more.

These two were both Hailey, a little girl with curly pale blonde hair, green eyes, a happy open mouth smile, and dimples. The curls across the forehead on my two Haileys were a bit wild and wiry, so I trimmed bangs on both of them. Then I decided to make one of them a boy, so that one got a more extensive haircut! You can see how nicely they can pose with their internal armatures. They can easily be positioned to sit, stand, and hold things


The little girl is wearing her original flowered one-piece pajamas. (She also came with a dark pink fleece jacket and hat, not shown here.)


The little boy is wearing preemie-size one-piece blue print pajamas that fit him perfectly.


Another My Twinn Boy

Another one of my 23 inch My Twinn boys on this busy Thursday. This boy has the Cookie face mold, a face with chubby cheeks and the look of a young child.


He has brown hair and brown eyes, with very nicely painted eyebrows and lips–a Denver era head, though it’s on a later Virginia era body. He’s wearing a tee-shirt and My Twinn boys’ overalls.


One more of my sweet little Cookie boy.


Twinns for Sunday

Lots of rain all day today, so a couple of indoor photos. I posted a My Twinn Baby (or Toddler) doll with the Lauren face a few days ago. I actually have two dolls with this face mold, so I tried changing one into a boy’s blue outfit. They make a nice set of happy little twins!


One more of the twin Twinns.


My Twinn Boy on Tuesday

Another one of my many My Twinn dolls today. This one is a 23-inch boy doll with a vinyl head, lower arms, and lower legs on a stuffed fabric body with an internal armature–he can stand by himself and pose in many positions. Over the years of production there were over 40 different face molds and a wide assortment of skin, hair, and eye colors. This little boy has the Sharon face mold which has a more serious expression, and he has light brown skin, curly dark hair, and dark brown eyes.


His head was made in the 1990’s-early 2000’s when the My Twinn company was located in Denver and the best quality dolls were being produced. The company later moved to Virginia, which is where his body was made in 2008 and when he was assembled. His lips and eyebrows were painted in Virginia and his brows don’t have artist touch that many earlier dolls had, but I still like his expression.


Unfortunately My Twinn has discontinued their 23-inch dolls and won’t be producing any more. These dolls have always been one of my favorites, and I’m sorry there won’t be any more of them–but I’m happy to have the ones I’ve collected over the past years!


Friday Assortment

A couple of anole shots first today. This is a young female–easy to tell it’s a girl by the pattern on her back. She has a light-colored central line with wavy shapes around it.


This one’s a male, with a bit of a crest raised on his neck and back, and with a bit of his dewlap showing. He may have an eye on another anole that he wants to impress or scare off, or he may have been aiming it at me and the camera.


I haven’t been seeing many mockingbirds lately. Mockingbirds are usually all over the yard, but the past couple of weeks I’ve been seeing mostly warblers, wrens, bluebirds, and starlings. I spotted this mockingbird today, looking back over its shoulder.


And here’s another My Twinn Baby (or Toddler, which is what they’ve been calling them recently. Like the doll I showed a week or two ago, Lauren is about 20 inches tall, with a chubby fabric body and an armature so she can stand up and pose. She has a vinyl head, lower arms/hands, and lower legs/feet.  Lauren has straight blond hair, light hazel eyes, and a big open mouth smile with two teeth showing. She’s wearing her original outfit, a soft pink sleeper and matching hat. Like Julia, she’s an older doll from the Denver era of My Twinn.


This must have been a face mold that was popular and that My Twinn liked. They made several Babies/Toddlers with this same face, just changing the names, the hair and eye colors, and the clothes. Danielle had dark brown curly hair and brown eyes and wore a one-piece sailor outfit with a hat; Courtney had pale blond curly hair and hazel eyes and wore a pink flowered dress and hat; and Sydney had brown curly hair and brown eyes and wore dark blue overalls with a light blue shirt.

I like the dimples in Lauren’s cheeks.
