Tonner's Marley Wentworth doll celebrates Halloween


Tonner's Marley Wentworth celebrates Halloween

Tonner's Marley Wentworth has been celebrating Halloween all weekend long, enjoying the cooler weather and fall leaves but most of all, the Halloween activities. She went to trunk-or-treat at a church in her community on Sunday night, and she is getting ready to go trick-or-treating on Halloween night. She is so excited about dressing up she even dreamed she was in a magical Halloween forest with her friends.


Here you can see Marley in the Bunny Costume that comes with the Marley Halloween trunk, as well as dressed up like Alice in Wonderland and like Lucy in Chronicles of Narnia. In her Halloween dream, you will see the same Marley dolls plus a Sugar Plum Party Marley.

All costumes were made by the Tonner Doll Company for their respective series.

Have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN from Marley and Me!

Pet peeve: Plagiarism & copyright Infringement of doll articles


Pet peeve: Plagiarism &  copyright Infringement of doll articles

As recently reported in Pet peeve: 'Rare' & 'HTF' dolls on ebay, one of my pet peeves is sellers using descriptions that amount to fraud on ebay. Another way that doll collectors and sellers defraud others is by plagiarism and copyright infringement of doll articles, photos and other intellectual property.

Sometimes I find my doll articles and photos on blogs, websites, and Facebook, often copied WORD-FOR-WORD, with only my name and links removed. This week I found where a very well-known doll dealer had copied my article Gallery showing of dolls in East Nashville combines fashion with history to his blog, changed the title, removed my byline and any reference to Examiner, and inserted a link to his own sales page. The man Happily copied my article; he knowingly removed my by-line and changed the title; and he deliberately linked to his sales page so he would make money off of my work!

Pet peeve: 'Rare' & 'HTF' dolls on ebay


Pet peeve: 'Rare' & 'HTF' dolls on ebay

One of my pet peeves is visiting ebay and seeing all the plethora of dolls marked "rare." I recently saw an entire page of Boo-tiful Halloween Barbie dolls marked "rare." Hello! If there is a page full of them -- they AREN'T "rare," especially if they originally sold in large quantities in grocery stores! Simply because a smaller quantity of mass-produced dolls was sold does not make them "rare."
