Kingston, NY (PRWEB) May 11, 2011
Tonner Doll Company, award-winning designer of high-end collectible dolls and figures, announces the arrival of the long-awaited 10.5” Vintage REVLON® dolls.
Originally manufactured by the Ideal Toy Company in the mid 1950s, Little Miss Revlon became a collectible icon in the fashion doll world, and is still highly sought after today. The little vinyl beauty was offered in several different sizes, and came adorned with sophisticated apparel, quality rooted hair, and blinking, sleepy eyes.
Robert Tonner, celebrated doll artist and CEO of Tonner Doll Company, was first taken with the tiny fashion symbol in the late 1950s, when his sister received a Little Miss Revlon doll. “Fashion dolls like Little Miss Revlon epitomized the glamour of the 1950s,” reflects Tonner.
An inspired collector of Little Miss Revlon himself, Tonner aimed to evoke her fashionable elegance, with his own personalized touch. “At that time, clothes were very cleanly and simply designed: simple lines, and solid-colors,” recalls Tonner.
Tonner has modified the face sculpt -- the original Little Miss Revlon’s eyes were not perfectly symmetrical, but Tonner’s new version embodies well proportioned, balanced facial features.
Inspired by the glamorous Little Miss Revlon from the Golden Age of Fashion, the Vintage REVLON® Fashion Doll stands 10.5” tall, and is made from high-quality vinyl, with strung jointing, inset blinking 'sleepy' eyes, rooted saran hair, and hand-painted facial detail. These miniature beauties are extremely limited, as only 500 pieces of each were produced.
“I’m so thrilled to be able to offer these dolls in our line,” notes Tonner. “It’s a chance for me and other collectors to re-live a happy time of doll collecting, and maybe introduce a whole new generation of collectors to this fashionable icon.”
The first two of three Vintage REVLON® dolls, Frosted Pink and Queen of Diamonds, arrived into stock in early May and retail for $124.99. The third Vintage REVLON® doll, Perfectly Pink, is expected to arrive at the end of May.
