Effanbee Announces End to Brenda Starr Doll

Effanbee recently anounced the end of the line for Brenda Starr dolls in this announcement posted on their website:

Brenda Starr, Reporter was created by Dale Messick to premiere on June 30, 1940. The tempestuous and flamboyant redhead was always impeccably dressed and coifed as she traveled the globe on one exciting assignment after another for her newspaper, The Flash. Each adventure was filled with glamour, romance and intrigue as this remarkable heroine was perpetually torn between the demands of her career and the many loves of her personal life.

Brenda showed readers a new type of heroine as she fought, from the very first day on the job at The Flash, for her right to be treated as an equal. Always on the cutting edge of fashion, Brenda has a sleek and sexy style that conveys the allure and independence of a workingwoman at the top of her career. Occasionally, Brenda will go Undercover to get “the scoop”, look for new hair colors and exotic face painting as she dons her many disguises.

Brenda’s life took a fateful turn on September 16, 1945 when she dreamed of a tall, dark, handsome stranger attired in a black cape and wearing a black patch over one of his eyes. The stranger materialized the following week, “the mystery man” turned out to be Basil St. John, a reclusive millionaire who cultivates a rare species of black orchids, the only known remedy for his “secret disease”. Basil makes his debut with a collection of dressed dolls and outfits worthy of this dashing Romeo.

In 2000, Effanbee introduced Brenda Starr, sculpted by Sandra Bilotto, a 16″ star in her own right that exhibited imaginative clothing and zest for our favorite reporter. In2002, Robert Tonner acquired Effanbee and re-styled the original Brenda head sculpt to fit the Tonner Doll Company’s Tyler Wentworth® body style. A new era for Brenda spanned from 2002 to 2007, providing collectors with extraordinary fashion from another era. We salute you, Brenda Starr…may your life with Basil be forever fabulous!

Brenda Starr, Daphne Dimples and Betty Ann are 16” vinyl/ hard plastic dolls with multiple points of articulation, including bending wrists, exceptional wardrobes, painted eyes and rooted saran hair. Doll bodies are compatible with Tonner Doll Company’s Tyler Wentworth Bending Wrist-Style Articulated body, and they can share clothing.

2007 Tyler Wentworth Convertible Basic Black Fashion Dolls

It looks like the folks at Robert Toner dolls have been playing with Bratz. The Tyler Wentworth and friends basic dolls for 2007 have detachable, swiveling feet! (I always thought it was kind of freaky that Bratz dolls have detachable feet. At least Tyler’s shoes are not part of her detachable feet, like the Bratz.)

Each basic doll will include two sets of interchangeable feet, one with a jointed ankle and flat foot, the other with an arched high-heel foot. The doll will also include two sets of shoes: one injection-molded high-heel pair, and one flat sandal pair. Each Basic Black dolls also includes swimsuit, sunglasses and a display stand.

The dolls are in stock now at retailers and available on eBay (Tyler Wentworth Basic Black on eBay).

Each doll has a different style swimsuit. The dolls pictured are Jac (far left), Tyler (left center), Sydney (right center) and Layne (far right).

Are Webkinz the New Beanie Babies?

Reminiscent of the Beanie Baby craze in the 90s, Webkinz are new plush animals by Ganz that are taking the toy market by storm. They are available at Hallmark and other retailers – but most are reportedly sold out.
What makes Webkinz different is that it is also an online toy. Every pet comes with a code, which allows it’s owner to claim it, name it and play with it at Webkinz.com.
As a true sign of any hot fad – Webkinz are hot, hot, hot on eBay (Webkinz on eBay), some retired Webkinz are selling for hundreds! (The retail price is $12.)
