Tiny Ann Estelle

Time for Breakfast

Time for Breakfast

Graphic artist, Mary Engelbreit, first introduced her most popular character as a paper doll in her own “Home Companion” magazine (launched 1996) and in her various illustrations. Ann Estelle is usually blonde and wears glasses. Robert Tonner has been offering 10″ dolls of Ann E and friends since 1999. Following his successful reproduction of 8″ Tiny Betsy McCall in 2000, he added an 8″ version of Ann Estelle using the Tiny Betsy body in 2003. There is only the one character in the line, but she is available in various hair colors.

My redhead above is a “Scottie Skirt and Saddle Shoes” (2003, LE 2000) that I bought nude. She is wearing a Mini Baby Born outfit that just about fits. Ann´s cup of cocoa came with Tonner´s Matt O´Neill, the rest of her breakfast including the kitty is made by Re-Ment. The bench is from a craft store, I made the table.
