The only Bride Doll I have with a Groom is a Kewpie Doll from Sekiguchi Doll Collection. Although the company is a manufacturer in Japan, these dolls are made in China. I forgot to take a photo of the box. I found this pair MIB (mint in box) I thought they were porcelain. They are made of hard rubber (I’m not familiar with the type of material but, I can say it has good quality) 5″ height and jointed limbs. They can make a good wedding cake topper.
Now I have 4 Kewpies! The other one which I fondly call Bethonk and this 3″ mini cool guy below.

June (late post) is usually the most popular month to wed, the history dates back to the Roman times because of new harvest, beautiful weather and flowers during summer time. Anyway, there are a lot of reasons why, and it has something to do with beliefs and traditions. But I’m not gonna dwell on that, I just want to post my Brides, and just one available Groom!
In August 2014 I have already dressed up some of my dolls in Wedding Gowns here, I forgot to include these because they are way below the storage box where I keep them.

Like most people, I have a favorite toy from my childhood which I keep to this day. Actually, I am already a teenager when my parents gave me this doll. I am not sure if he is an original Kewpie Doll, he has no markings, just a red apron with a Japanese character written on it and I do not know what that means (i lost the apron). I call him “Bethonk.” It’s actually from the comic character which was famous then in our place, THONK the robot and his human daughter Bebe. Anyway, he is my transition doll, given to me just before I graduate from high school. After having played with a lot of ordinary cheap plastic dolls, i moved on to the type of dolls that are not really meant to be played with, something collectible of sort….(well, I still play with Bethonk, sometimes, when I’m feelin’ tired and low, I will just embrace him and my cares seems to vanish…has an uplifting effect).
