Before he delved into dolls, Robert Tonner was senior designer for Bill Blass's sportswear division. The Tyler Wentworth doll is herself a mini-fashion designer. The clothes that "she" creates are backed by Tonner's strong, classic design sense. For 2006, "There are some wonderful outfit collections and the return of Tyler ready-to-wear boutique," said Tom Courtney, director of marketing for Tonner. The dolls are extremely detailed and wear only the finest garments from the Wentworth collection, but what else would you expect?

With the popularity of Dark Horse´s release of the complete library of classic Little Lulu comics, Dark Horse is happy to offer her sidekick Tubby as an 8" vinyl figure. From her first appearance in The Saturday Evening Post in the 1930´s as a single panel gag strip, Little Lulu has gone on to become a beloved cultural icon all over the world. Tubby was alternately Little Lulu´s closest companion and biggest nemesis — forever getting into mischief and hatching schemes. Tubby and his club, the Junior Paratroopers, often found themselves matching wits with Lulu, with often disastrous results. The beauty of this toy is its value as a collector´s item, as well as a vinyl figure.
