Introducing Maudlynne Macabre by Tonner Toys

I am loving the promo shots of Tonner Toys newest doll, Maudlynne MacabreMaudlynne has so many attributes that I’m drawn to, namely big, round, over-sized eyes and a fun, macabre Addams Family feeling to her!

Maudlynne is a whopping 15″ tall and has ten points of articulation.  She has rooted saran hair and was sculpted by the man himself, Robert Tonner.  As always, she is dressed to impress in another high quality outfit, featuring a “Victorian goth chic dress”, a headband, fingerless gloves, tights, and a pair of Mary Janes.

I love her face.  It is Wednesday Addams mixed with a little Susie Sad Eyes (or Lonely Lisa).  From the large eyes to the round cheeks, her features are placed perfectly. Another great aspect of her face paint is that you can truly tell the ‘character’ of the doll.  Even without the outfit, Maudlynne gives off a slightly macabre vibe from her face paint/hairstyling alone!

Unlike the affordable Little Miss Matched line also by Tonner Toys, Maudlynne is $59.99 and currently sold on Tonner Direct. Personally, I do think she’s a little expensive for a doll they call a ‘beginning collector’ doll.  Even if the quality was cut a little, I would have preferred a lower price point on her.  Plus, with a lower price point, we’d see her on store shelves like the current Little Miss Matched line. I don’t see Maudlynne popping up on Toys R Us shelves any time soon.

That being said,  I’m looking forward to seeing owner images of this Tonner Toys release because even if she’s out of my price range right now, she’s super cute (or ‘bitter sweet, as they say!)

What do you think of Madulynne? Do you think her price point is too high for the casual collector or young collector?  Do you like her style?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
