Happy Family Dad & Son - Alan & Ryan 2002

Happy Family was a series all on their own, but Barbie was included - as a Baby Doctor. The Happy Family is Midge with her husband Alan and their two kids, Ryan the toddler and the new born baby girl, not yet given a name. The family was released in two skintones through the series, Caucasian and AA.

In the first round we got Midge with her pregnant belly and the new born baby girl (not shown, other than in the box illustrations below), while her husband Alan came together with their son Ryan in a stroller. They are out in the park to have some fun, while Mom tends to the newborn. They wear matching outfits with khaki shorts, a blue plaid shirt over a white t-shirt and white sneakers. The Alan dolls had a new face sculpt, same was used for both versions. 

These are not the first Ryan dolls we see, but the Kelly Club versions is another kid, as he usually sports dark brown hair, green eyes and freckles, which Happy Family Ryan has not. However, reuse of a name is nothing new and collectors are happy to see a boy, no matter his origin.

Dolls and photos all belong to me, unless otherwise noted.
