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