Tonner dolls. Have you heard of these?

When I started writing this article, I realized that I would have to collect a lot of information about these dolls, review photos, and I was really afraid of “getting sick” with toners. Well, I will tell you right away, my fears were confirmed, now I do not sleep at night and dream of at least five such pupae! It is impossible not to fall in love with these dolls!

They are so different, so qualitatively and realistically made, among them you will surely meet one that seems ideal. All Tonners of the releases of recent years are fully articulated: they have a moving neck, wrists, shoulders, elbows, knees, hips, waist, and even a hinge under the breast. Tonner can be divided into several categories. These dolls differ in height (from 20 to 56 centimeters), hair and body color, mobility, and even completeness!

It is worth noting that you will not find a low-quality doll in any of these categories. Moreover, it is pleasantly surprising not only the quality of the dolls themselves, but also the outfits. Clothes for Tonners are made, as if by human patterns, beautiful, neat, with many small details and almost always on a lining! Toners are massive and limited.

The first ones are quite popular, and although they are not cheap, it is still quite realistic to buy them. But the second ones are sometimes produced with a circulation of just a few dolls, they cost a lot of money, and it’s not easy to find them.

Most often, collectors buy these dolls on e-bay, there Tonners are much cheaper than in the toy store, and besides, the choice is more diverse. In the “Children’s World” you will not find limited Tonners. Attract Tonners with their realism. They look more like people than like dolls. They have an amazing expression on their face, nothing to do with the silly smile of a Barbie doll.

They are also pleased with the bodies of these dolls, everyone can buy one that they like: there are thin girls and real fatties. Children, adolescents, adults, men, women – who is not among the Tonners! Do you like fantastic heroes? Please, here is a lovely Toonner Wicked Witch doll with green skin or Luna with blue! You should be wondering who created these amazingly realistic dolls?

In 1982, American artist and collector Robert Tonner decided to try his hand at creating author dolls. As you can see, he succeeded! In 1991, Robert founded his own doll manufacturing company, the Tonner Doll Company. And although Robert himself was a collector before, he is opposed to the dolls lying in their boxes and were just copies from the collection. Robert Tonner is sure that you definitely need to play with the dolls, surrounding them with care and attention. Children and adults all over the world play with Robert Tonner dolls! Yes, it is not surprising, perhaps, not to find such a wonderful doll as Tonner Doll.

It is convenient to decorate toners and take pictures: after all, they are very mobile,unlike fragileany pose. For Tonner it is convenient to sew: the bulk of these dolls are larger than the standard Barbie. Well, what a joy these dolls bring to children, and there is no reason to say! Another advantage of these dolls is that they are strong enough, they are difficult to break, unlike fragile collectible dolls. These are the magnificent dolls created by Robert Tonner. If you’re in the toy store, be sure to take a look at the Tonners. Perhaps you will leave here a few thousand rubles and get a wonderful doll. Be careful, these dolls left little to indifferent!
