What are your future plans? Will you stay in the "doll industry"?

Hi Tom,
a long time ago, when the first Tyler dolls came out, you published a fan fiction in the Tonner dolls Yahoo group that I remember fondly (even though sadly it was unfinished). It showed you as a very talented writer. Now that you are leaving RTDC, do you have any plans on maybe writing a novel?

Steffi said...

And another blast from the past...

Most of the convention exclusive Tyler dolls for the very first Tonner convention in Portland, were stolen.
Did they ever turn up again, and was the thief found?

Wishing you all the best for the future and hope you´ll be sticking around the doll scene somehow :-)

Hi Tom,

For those of us who don't actually know much about you or your history with Tonner, can you tell us a little about what your role was at Tonner Doll Co. and why now is the right time to change that role?

Thank you!

What did you like the most about working with Tonner? Is there another doll company you would like to work with?

Best of luck!

Hi Tom,

I've seen some of your beautiful creations over the years. Would you ever be interested in making your own doll or designing?

Hi Tom. If you had a doll company what kind of doll would you make? Thanks.

Hard to believe you're really leaving. I'm so sorry I missed seeing Julia Childs at convention, but I hope you will leave that album up on facebook for everybody to see. It showed the grand scale and scope of your insanity.
And I still want to buy that Esme (or was is Jac? No, Esme) wearing the black variation of "Florentine"---she stopped me dead in my tracks, and shut me UP, for a second at least. (You, of all people, know how rare THAT is.) You are so talented, dear Tom---I hope you're going to go into dolly Haute Couture.
love and a good-bye hug

Tom, is there any possibility that you may work for the Tonner Company again in the future, or is it over and done with. I can't imagine the Company without you.

Hi Tom
Don't know if you remember me, I used to design for Gene back in the Ashton Drake days. I loved going to your booth at Toyfair to see the beautiful Tonner dolls, talk to you and have quite a few laughs.
I moved back to Peru a few years ago and lost touch with all that doll universe.
Seems so strange to think of Tonner without you. Wish you all the best!
