Meet Josh!

Not too long ago, I mentioned that I had someone new join the gang.  It actually happened a couple of months ago, but with everything I had going on, I’m just now getting around to writing about it.

Roll back to February 2016, and some of the girls were getting ready to go to the Snowball Dance.  Several of the girls mentioned a young man named Josh Montgomery and how they thought for sure he would be crowned King of the Snowball Dance.  Funny how mention of something as simple as an unseen character can spark an idea.

A box arrived not long after my birthday in September 2017.  Sharry from Julie Newman’s Time Capsule told me that there was a package coming.  I was not prepared for what it was though.  You can imagine my surprise when I opened it up and there was a boy doll!  I immediately called her, and she said that she decided I needed Josh to come to life!!

I’m not 100% sure exactly who makes Josh.  He has no tags, and while I found several dolls that looked like him online, they were sold by several different companies, so that didn’t help.  He’s well made though, close to AG quality, definitely better than some of the other brands I’ve seen.

Josh likes to skateboard.  He is the youngest of 3, his brother and sister are quite a bit older and have since moved out and into their own homes, so he’s by himself.  However, Ryan is pleased as punch to have a friend.  He was getting tired of being bossed about by his sister Jenny and her friends!!

Josh is just slightly shorter than AG dolls, you can see here beside Ryan there is a very slight difference.  Otherwise, the AG clothing fits him just fine.  I may change his hairstyle a bit, still not sure exactly what I want to do, and haven’t had much time to do it!  I think it will be fun coming up with some boy type stories for these two though.  Thanks again Sharry!!!

Speaking of gifts–Xyra from Tea Time With Melody Q sent me some lovely doll sized goodies for Christmas.  My favorite though was a prairie style hat, reminiscent of those that Laura Ingalls Wilder wore.  It reminded me of the prairie outfits my mom used to make for Barbie dolls.  However, as I was checking it out, I realized that it might fit someone else…

  1. So cute!

    Josh is great! Really cute. I bet he and Ryan will have great adventures together. Maybe a trip to Coolspring to see an engine or two. 🙂

  2. Josh’s face mold has been used for several brands. I can point you in a few directions on Dollation if you really need to know 🙂

    He should fit OG clothes well btw.

  3. YAY Josh! I’m glad he and Ryan can be buddies. Josh is a Kingstate doll. I had to give him a haircut before I sent him to you, b/c his hair was hanging down to his nose! Are you gonna set up (temporary) boy rooms? I’d love to see that!

    • Oh dear, I bet that looked funny!!! Good to know what brand he is for sure, they must have made dolls for several other companies and just stuck whoever’s name on them. I kept finding dolls like him but with all different brands.

      Not sure if I’m going to do rooms or not, we will see.
