Happy Mother's Day


They were dubbed "The mother and the baby of today" in 1973. That's right I'm talking 9" Jenny Jones and 2.5" Baby John. No Mr. Jones was included or mentioned on the box or in any of the advertising. Jenny wears a silver "band" on her left ring finger so the assumption was that Jenny was married. No one complained about the lack of a husband in the box, but those were different days. Sigh.

Mothers appear in other fashion doll series. Jenny reminds me of other playscale mother dolls even though she was a little "hipper" than most. I will be posting a list of playscale mothers this week.

Happy Mother's Day!

Hello from Spain, happy mother's day. In my country is celebrated the first Sunday of May. It is a day very familiar. I like your photos .. Keep in toucht

Muff said...

Happy Mother's Day to you too! I don't have any kids though, lol.

Happy Mother's Day! Thanks for the picture.

Hi Marta, Muff, and Vanessa!

@Marta - yes, I think Mother's Day celebrations are similar wherever they are celebrated. Our Mother's Day in the United States is just done a week later than it is in Spain. Glad you like the Jenny Jones and Baby John photo.

@Muff - me neither, lol. I don't have kids except one cat "baby" and several playscale plastic ones. So we'll wish each other Happy Mother's Day for having playscale "children."

@Vanessa - I have MORE themed photos, but I have to get them from my camera to another computer. Sigh. Well, learning new skills. Glad you liked this photo.

P.S. Jenny is holding John out to admire his utter adorableness. He is NOT being shaken or rebuked or anything unworthy our small folks.

And a Happy Mother's Day to you too - dolls defintely count. Does your photo comment mean you have a new computer?

Hi Carrickters! Alas, I do not have a new computer. I borrowed my Mom's computer though ... but I haven't figured out how to upload my photos onto her Windows 8 machine.

Windows 8 ... grrr ... sigh. Oh, well I suppose a change was due. Really though? Really? Why does it HIDE apps, etc.?
