|This is an interesting product
made by Mattel. We have this chain-store in Sweden that
sell overproduced products and leftovers from other Swedish stores as well as from foreign. A couple of years
back I ran across one of these dolls and I realized he
looked just like Ken did in the 80's and he caught my
interest. I couldn't resist them so I bought all the
different dolls that were on the shelves; two black dolls
and three white male dolls. Later I found the three white
female dolls and now have four complete families. There is
also an Asian couple out there somewhere. This series is
called Family Corners® and
the dolls are 7" tall.
brings a lot of fun. The girl dolls have their own
"house" in plastic with fold-out cardboard walls and stickers with flowers, a wedding-portrait with only
her on it (!) and other decorating things. The guys
brings more parts to the house, as a nursery and a
wedding chapel and more stickers including his part of
The dolls' faces as I said is quite resembling the larger Barbie-doll and her friends. The ones I have are made with three plus three different headmolds. The blonde Becky has a smaller variation of the SuperStar headmold, her friends Melody and Lacey looks like smaller copies of Midge and Teresa with a closed mouth mold, the black Nichelle-doll looks like the 11½" Asha. Nicholas is the reincarnation of the Ken-doll, his friends Ryan and Joey looks a bit like a mix of Alan and Derek, and the black Kurt looks like a little Steven-doll. The Asian girl Traci looks just like Kira, but the Asian guy Derek has an all new mold (I've said earlier we want an Asian Ken-size doll!).
The baby-girls are adorable with molded hair (in the color of their father's) and rooted ontop, drawn together in one or two pony/pigtails. They are sooo cute! It's a nice idea that the male doll brings the baby.
