We're Pregnant and It's Okay!

We're Pregnant and It's Okay!

Black Doll Enthusiast

Until earlier today, this couple had been expecting their bouncing baby since the father's box date of 1992.  Father-To-Be and Mommy-To-Be dolls were manufactured by Judith Corporation.  They are 12 and 11-1/2 inches tall, respectively. 

Here's a close-up.   Doesn't Dad look just too excited? 

Mommy-To-Be "carried" the baby in her abdominal cavity.  Its gender was unknown prior to purchase. 

A look inside

The bouncing baby boy

The proud couple gave birth to a bouncing baby boy earlier today after I deboxed them and removed the tummy plate from Mommy for the first time in 19 years.

Mommy-To-Be in the postnatal state

Originally sold through FAO Schwarz, interestingly, for ages 3 and up, I purchased this pair from a fellow collector. 

The side panel of Mommy-To-Be's box lists the following, separately sold items:
  • Accessory set with before and after pregnancy clothing
  • Her Husband [as shown above], the Father-to-Be Doll
  • 8 different maternity outfits
  • 2 different sets of accessories for the baby, such as a baby carrier, a walker, and also a baby carriage
These dolls were on the market several years prior to Mattel's controversial Happy Family (2002), which included the pregnant (yet) married-to-Alan, MidgeMidge's marital status did not prevent the backlash Mattel received from angry parents who felt the dolls' "having a baby" theme was in poor taste and a bad influence on children.   I do not recall any controversy surrounding the Father- and Mommy-To-Be-Dolls, do you?
