We have new boys at our house! We found a set of 2006 Bitty Twin boys (blond and brunette) on Craigslist so now we have some more little ones among us.
This is Wayne. He's our 2006 brunette Bitty Twin Boy. I'm not sure I like the fact that he has no socks with his outfit, but other than that, the outfit is adorable. The shoulder straps close with velcro as well as the back of his shirt and the sides of his training pants.
I totally love his little, cuddly body. He has the same body as a Bitty baby so they can actually wear each other's clothing.
I love the fact that his eyelashes are dark to match his hair better. The light eyelashes on the blond twin are eerie looking.
He's a cutie even though I like the closed mouth dolls better.
Our brunette Bitty Boy is quite possibly the best-loved doll in our house. Ours dates from 2005. He never wears his color-block sleeper because I don't think he ever sleeps...at least not according to my son's rules of doll play. FWIW, the 2005 Meet outfit is a nice weight velour and very soft.
I love how durable and sturdy the Bitty Twins are. Not to perpetuate gender stereotypes, but in my experience little boys play with their dolls more roughly than do little girls. This doll is my son's favorite and he's seen lots and lots of action with nary a scrape. Except his one eyelid does droop a bit, but we don't fuss about that around here.
Before we got him I was worried that the open mouth would give him a perpetually hungry-bird look, but IRL it's not been distracting. My son loves him, and he's held up well over many years of play, so A+ from me.
