Kenya's Male Friends Found in Philly

Hooray! Remember Kenya? What about her boyfriend, T.J. and his cousin Dwayne? Well, Kenya's male friends have finally reached the City of Brotherly Love.

Cousins Dwayne (left) and T.J. (right)

Here is Dwayne. He has painted, close-cropped hair. Medium brown complexion.

Here is T.J. He has a bald skull. Dark brown complexion. He and Dwayne both have straight arms and articulated knees as guessed by the angle of the bent knees.

I did not buy either of the guys. While I would like to try the fashions on my taller guys - Integrity Toys' Lukas Maverick and Mattel's Scottie Pippin - I'd like to wait until they are on sale. On the other hand, suppose they get bought up entirely? Suppose I cannot find them later? Male dolls appear and disappear so quickly. What to do? What to do?

P.S. Select Kenya dolls are for sale online. I am hoping that little sister Keyshia makes her appearance next.

So far I have only seen the dudes at Walmart and they have a huge messy supply of all things Kenya. In fact, they don't seem to be selling well at all at my store. I don't know if it's over supplied or lack of interest or price point.

I would much rater these be at Target because then I know I can get them for a decent clearance. Walmart will clearance stuff like 8 percent off and think they are doing something special.

Yay! I hope that the ones with articulated arms make it here soon!

I noticed you didn't say where you saw them. You can email me that! LOL!

Hello from Spain: I like these guys. Interesting clothes. Keep in touch

Hey Muff, Roxanne, Ms. Leo, and Marta!

Hi and Happy Columbus Day for anyone celebrating it ;-)

@Muff - this is the first time I have seen the guys so I am not sure if they sell out quickly at the stores I usually go to or they haven't reached there. Maybe the guys are not selling at this past location - shrug.

I agree that had they been sold at Target, we'd more likely be able to get them at a cheaper price. Walmart had the Hasbro 1 Direction Harry Styles back UP to $15.00 in the CLEARANCE section. LOL. Remember when I got mine at $9.99.

Learned from the Muffinator, lol.

@Roxanne - Oh, some of them have articulated arms, too? Cool. These were priced around $15.00 with articulated knees only. Hope you get them soon in your neighborhood. I found these in an area I usually do not shop.

@Ms. Leo - ho, I forgot about locals. I'll email you to give you a head start ;-)

@Marta - the guys are likeable, but their heads are soooo big. The clothes are nice for casual fashions. They are more traditionally "male" fashions than Ken has had recently.

I have no opinion but I want to say HI to everyone :)

(buy 'em lol)

but keep in mind I make lots of bad decisions.

Georgia Girl said...

They still have not showed up at my Walmart, only the girls. I think it is the $15 price that has them staying on the shelves. IMO they sold well at Family Dollar last year because of their discounted price. I only want the bald guy.

D7ana said...

Hi and yay, Super Cool Doll House and Georgia Girl!

@Super Cool Doll House - thanks for the encouragement, lol. You make more great decisions ;-D

@Georgia Girl - totally agree with you about the Kenya dolls selling due to discounted prices. Shrug.

Hope the dolls reach you soon so that you can determine if they are worth the $15.00. On the plus side, it would cost between $5-10 to get a decent fashion alone so ... I dunno. I would prefer to wait for a sale, too.

But I don't want to miss out ...

then again, are they likely to sell out?

Uh huh ... remember when Janay and the Integrity playline dolls seemed ever-present ...


I'm officially exhausted, pish.

I've still yet to see them. When they do show up, I hope they also have the $10 versions like they do for the Kenya dolls. I don't need the larger package. Although if they have an extra pair of shoes, it may be worth it if the shoes can fit the larger dolls. I too, am only looking for TJ.

D7ana said...

Hi Vanessa! I hope they have $10.00 versions, too. The ones I saw were for about $15.00. Here's to hoping those shoes can fit our larger footed guys and that you find them soon ;-)
