Fast forward to 2015. My Twinn had gone under at least once, and possibly more than just once (I forget), so imagine my surprise when I learned that the company was still alive and kicking! Sometime during all this turmoil My Twinn decided to phase out their original dolls (23 inches with internal armature) and start releasing 18-inch dolls instead. Miss Emily shared her experiences with the current company (the first of her My Twinn-related posts is here), and through her I learned that it's possible to obtain a My Twinn doll without going through the customization process, or wading through price-gougers on eBay. Enter the Adopt A Friend option...and the rows of little dolly faces begging "Take me home!"
Basically these dolls are like high-end Cabbage Patch Kids. They're one of a kind and were assembled from parts that were judged slightly defective. Usually they're worth about ninety bucks, but every now and then they go on sale. Miss Emily got her first doll during one of these sales (a 23-inch doll that she named Kalliope), and mine will be another one of these sale dolls. This is her.
Those eyebrows certainly look interesting; I've noticed in pictures that these dolls' eyebrows can be very hit-and-miss, so it'll be fun to see what these are like. I have no idea when she'll get here, but when she does...well, y'all know what I plan on doing.
