We're having a blast here with live music...and folks lining up for the purchase of the Prudence and Rufus Companions (Rufus was shown in a centerpiece with a street scene and lamppost - by himself, he's sold as a companion). All three dolls (Ellowyne, Prudence and Rufus) are each LE400. No news on how or when extras might be sold outside the convention.
Get your PJs ready! The Slumber Party and Raffle Prizes are pulled next...names received int he Raffle Prize Post by 9:30 EST (8:30 Central) will be eligible for 12 FREE prizes!

Robert Tonner will now take YOUR Questions!

Good Morning, Virtual Attendees!


We've seen many folks asking questions here and there on the blog...and while we really can't monitor and answer all, we did want to create a post where you could ask those questions directly to Robert. We'll get you answers later in the day. Please refrain from the regular questions you could ordinarily send to help@tonnerdoll.com - but then again, if it's a question we can answer...we'll do our best. Let 'er rip!
We'll see you a little later at the Mother Goose Re-imagined Event!
