  1. Well done article and the photos were amazing! I'll probably not have a FR anytime soon, but they are so wonderful to gaze upon.

  2. Thanks, Muff!

    FR dolls are wonderful to gaze upon but even better to own. In these stylized images, they could pass for high fashion models on any given day. Wait... better not give fashion designers any ideas. The dolls could possibly replace real models in print and catalog work.

    1. Thank you, Paulette. I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Asante's article and reading the inspiration for Integrity Toys' multicultural doll line. I knew most of their story, but refreshers are always nice.

      I was honored to offer my input as a collector.
