Well, it's a happy day for Kenya. Her boyfriend TJ has arrived!
Weekend Hang TJ is part of the Kenya Fashion Madness line of dolls. He comes with an olive colored warm up suit with a jacket that zips up the front, black undershirt, sunglasses, and sneakers. Here he is out of the box.
He has a large head like his girlfriend Kenya. He is handsome and has a nice smile. Here is a close-up.
Kenya and TJ are thrilled to see each other again. TJ remarks that Kenya has lost weight since the last time he saw her (Kenya has been rebodied on a model muse Barbie body).
Keyshia is also glad to see TJ. Kenya, Keyshia, and TJ are pictured below.
Here is TJ with some of my other male dolls. They are from left to right: Flavas Tre, Texas A&M Male Cheerleader, TJ, My Scene Sutton, and Fashion Royalty Darius Reid.
Below, TJ is pictured without his jacket. His black shirt has velcro closures in the back.
He has been working out! TJ is pictured below in Ken's boxer shorts. He has articulation at the elbows, wrists, and knees. He has flat feet and he can stand without assistance. He's a little bowlegged.
Here he is seated.
Ken fashions are a little tight on TJ. The shorts that TJ is wearing below will not completely close in the back. TJ and Ken can share shoes.
TJ also looks good in action figure apparel. Below, he is wearing GI Joe's shirt and some action figure jeans.
TJ's suit fits my Heroik Muscle Body figure Terry pretty well. Even though the suit is a little short on Terry, TJ almost did not get his suit back. I may end up giving this suit to Terry since he has such a hard time finding clothing. I can easily find TJ something else to wear. I hope that the company comes out with fashion packs for TJ and Dwayne.
All of my Kenya dolls, Keyshia, and TJ came with this Proud 2BU Lifestyle Guide, which I never bothered to debox until now. I'm glad I did, because I am glad to see that this book is full of positive and inspiring messages for kids.
I feel good about supporting a company that has such a positive message for kids.
Excerpt from the guide:
"Project Pride is big and it's for everyone! Pride has no barriers: it's being cool with our differences and enjoying the ways we are alike. Pride honors heritage and respects our world. Join us as we rally with kids everywhere to show pride in our unique backgrounds and cultures, our families and communities, and especially ourselves!"
My overall impression of the doll is that he is a good buy for the money. I don't usually care much for big-headed dolls, but I like TJ just the way he is. I want to find an articulated version of his cousin Dwayne next.
