|Real Friends Tanisha, box date 1999, Geoffrey, Inc.|
After finding my first Tanisha at a thrift store in late-December 2013 and featuring her here, I received help with her ID from D7ana. Desiring an upgrade, I searched eBay with zero results and saved the search to receive future listing notifications. After nearly two years, the doll shown above was listed in an eBay auction and I was the only bidder.
Tanisha is one of several friends in the Real Friends 11-1/2-inch fashion doll line with a box date of 1999, sold only at Toys R Us. She has brown painted eyes and long black rooted hair.
Tanisha's describes herself as:
I love playing tennis and dancing. When I start my career I'm going to hold all my meetings at the tennis court.
She must really love tennis!
Tanisha (the thrift store find), and the desired upgrade are shown together in this final post photograph.
