Tonner Dolls announced a mini collection with three dressed dolls inspired by Dr. Seuss stories. All dolls have the Monica Merrill™ sculpt which is appropriately cartoon-y for Dr. Seuss but not for a fashion doll. Their body is the 16" Tyler™ BW body so the fashions can be easily worn by many other 16" dolls - but unfortunately they are not sold separately. They style reminds me a lot of Christian Lacroix and his whimsical couture collections. Also the embroidered "sketch" effect reminds me a lot of a certain John Galliano Christian Dior couture collection. The dolls are already available on-line at Tonner. albeit a bit pricey.
"This high-fashion take on the colorful, poetic whimsy of Dr. Seuss is a marriage of what we do best: High fashion and pop culture. What you see here is not a re-creation of the Seuss characters, per se, but instead, creations inspired by the colors and the shapes that are at the essence of what we all love about Dr. Seuss's art".
