Sitting pretty

Dear Diary,

Jesse:  Not long ago, I had a couple of requests to show the boys with their individual chairs.  We aim to please: here are the photos.


The odyssey of this chair, coming from the US and getting to NZ, has already been chronicled here.  Everyone loved this chair.  It was purchased for Hans but some other boy doll climbed up and liked sitting in it.  Poor Hans had to evict Armand so he could have the chair for himself.

I recently knitted the waistcoat for him.  I made three in different colours.


I don't understand why Armand was so determined to have Hans' chair when he has a lovely wicker chair of his own.  This chair has a very wide seat which accommodates Armand's wide seat perfectly.  Although I often strap him in to prevent any accidents, he doesn't need it as he sits firmly in place.


A Victorian woman's parlour chair in red plush upholstery suits Adam nicely.  Adam's creator used UD (Unintelligent Design); he has a difficult time sitting, moving his head and posing.  His creator should have used science instead - the results would have been more satisfactory.  As you can see, he needs a chair which accommodates his splayed legs when sitting.  He also needs an extra amount of ease in his trousers so he can sit down.  He likes his chair and doesn't mind sharing it with others.  But, don't tell him it's a ladies chair - you know how silly blokes can be!

Now, this is what I call "man spread"!


As the longest doll resident in my family, Angelo has a custom-made rocker.  It is after the Mission Style Arts & Crafts style, specifically the Gustav Stickley design.  Angelo's rocker is perfectly scaled to him.  He enjoys sitting and rocking for hours in it.

Waiting in anticipation.
