Pearl goes shopping

It's a hoot when customers send me photos of Kenny Croes Dummy Store characters in new duds. Best of all, they share stories of shopping excursions with their new companions. Auntie Pearl accompanied Harold to the clothing store and caused quite a stir. Folks whipped out their cell phone cameras and clicked away as they perused the aisles. Now Pearl has a brand new wardrobe.

She enjoys being a Pearl

Not many folks know this, so please be discreet. But Auntie Pearl here was an exotic dancer way back when.  Waaaay back when. But now she's settled into a quaint life of baking cookies, feeding her 17 cats and making book on the side. She's been thinking seriously of publishing her memoirs...and then going on a speaking tour. She just needs a partner to help her old (and amazingly limber) bones onto the stage. That's why she's off to meet Harold, her grandson (and sole heir).

In good company

It's always a delight to see customers so happy to be in the company of their new Kenny Croes Dummy Store figure. The little guy has been named "Nathan Little". The tall guy on the right is Franklin. He mentioned that he works with kids of various and blended ethnicity and he wanted a figure that might represent a kid of mixed heritage. So Nathan's skin color was darkened slightly to reflect that. I love the fact that ventriloquism is used to teach youngsters.

Professor Goofentickle

The latest conversion figure to emerge from the Kenny Croes Dummy Store is named Professor Goofentickle. He's likely a source of endless misinformation. His academic credentials are quite dubious. The professor has a PHD in silly subjects, so expect scholarly gibberish during his looney lectures. He was built for fun, so I hope he joins a funny faculty soon.
