Ken's Kollectibles Korner From WHM 1212 Holiday Gift Guide Issue

As many of you may already know, I am one of the the proud publishers of What's Happening Magazine located in Sunny Florida. Every couple of months we run an article devoted to Fashion Doll Collectibles. Why? Because I can! LOL! Also, one of our dear friends and advertiser Marl Davidson supports our little publication and therefore we like to help her out by letting people know that she carries an amazing assortment of Fashion Dolls - especially the Integrity Toys Fashion Lines. In this particular installment my friend and writer Ken Dahl features Integrity's Breakfast At Tiffany's line (of which I'm lucky to say I'm already the proud owner of one and I'm on pre-order at for the rest of them! yah!)
Attached is the article in a format that is easier to read. To see the whole magazine...go to ENJOY!


Well guys and dolls, and I’ll let you decide which category you fit into, it’s that time of year where a young gay boy’s fancy turns to thoughts of snow and mistletoe and what he’s going to be gifted with this holiday season.  For all of you doll collecting fellows out there, I will break it down for you this yuletide, so all you have to do is give this issue to the man, or men, that will buying for you and simply say (to quote the prophet Freddie Mercury from an old Queen song), “I want it all!”
First up is the Robert Tonner doll company.  For all you boys looking for a big strong hero….well, believe it or not, sometimes a woman can be the one to save the day.  Wonder Woman’s sister Donna Troy, also known as Wonder Girl, has been immortalized in vinyl and she is perfection.  If you are more of a Marvel Comics fan then Jean Grey aka Phoenix will be the one you should be on the lookout for.

For those of you that love a princess, or even think you may be a princess…or some other sort of royalty (if you know what I’m sayin’), then Mattel has got the gal for you!  This season they offer us Grace Kelly in the fabulous fashion she wore in “Rear Window”.  The black and white outfit captures perfectly the look of the original.  If you can’t get enough of Grace, Mattel also offers us Grace in her outfit from “To Catch a Thief” and another doll in the wedding dress she wore when she became the Princess of Monaco….as well as a fourth Grace doll with her trousseau set!

Lastly, Integrity Toys brings us another movie star that often turns the heads of gay boys everywhere: one Miss Audrey Hepburn in some of her best outfits from “Breakfast at Tiffanys”.  There are five dolls in the series with each wearing her most iconic outfits.  My personal favorites are “Fifth Avenue at 6AM” featuring the ensemble we meet her in at the opening of the film and the “How Do I Look” giftset featuring the ensemble from Holly’s stylish visit to Sing Sing….right down to that to-die-for long black cigarette holder!

So, my good fellows, there you have it! Rip this page out of the magazine right now, give it to your beloved…..or friend…or sugar daddy…and tell him anything on the list will do but EVERYTHING would be better!  Also tell him a great place to start for the Mattel and Integrity stuff is with the lovely Ms. Marl Davidson at  Be sure and tell Marl that one Mr. Ken Dahl sent you, because for every customer I send her way, she gives me a shot of vodka!

Until Next Time…Have a GREAT HOLIDAY SEASON…and Play Nice Kids!
Love Ya,
