Meet Jessi Lynn and Prue

This blog is supposed to be about my dolls in general, but somehow or other so far it has been exclusively about Pea even though a variety of dolls live at my house!  So I'd like to share a bit about two of my other favorites.

This is Jessi Lynn:

 She is a Little Mo doll and was from the very last batch made.  She was also the last full sized girl purchased.  Very lucky for me because I was taken with her as soon as I saw her picture.  Don't really understand why she wasn't immediately scooped up by someone else, but that's alright with me!  Her original name was Gertie but as soon as she came out of her box, she let me know her name is Jessopa Lynn Thornton and she would like to be known as Jessi Lynn, thank you very much.

I've never met such a prim little doll.  She's about 12 years old so still a little girl, but really wants to be grown up and is very concerned with etiquette and clothes and, most of all, not being perceived as childish.  So far she only has the dress she came in but is dying for more!  Jessi Lynn is a girl who speaks her mind, can be a little stuck in her ways (but can't we all?), and I'm pretty sure could carry on a conversation with a rock.

Jessi Lynn was fascinated with the life sized (to her anyway) statue of the dancing turtle and gnome and conceded to having her picture taken with them:

I don't have any pictures of them meeting, but she and Pea get along okay.  Pea was initially really curious about the new doll, but Jessi Lynn was rather taken aback by her ("But fairies don't exist!") and her dislike of small children unfortunately seems to extend to our little Miss Pea.  So they ignore each other for the most part.  While I'm sure Pea would enjoy having a friend more or less her size, at least they don't hate each other, right?

The other doll I'd like to introduce is Prue:

Prue is an American Girl doll that I picked out in person from the Seattle store.  Her full name is Prudence Tallulah Jane.  Rather long and no last name, but who am I to argue?  She is a very kind girl of about 9 years and has many interests.  She loves animals (especially cats and owls), stuffed animals, and is fascinated with fairies, gnomes, wizards, and the like.  She's also quite imaginative and I often find her lost in thought or engrossed in a book.  Also, surprising since she is a doll and doesn't eat, she's really interested in cooking and baking!

Happily for Pea, Prue has more of a whimsical streak than Jessi Lynn and the two of them took to each other right away.  Pea loves when Prue reads her stories and Prue laughs at all the funny things Pea does, much to her delight.  Prue and Jessi Lynn also get along nicely.  Prue is very sweet and a tiny bit shy, and Jessi Lynn is very much not shy, but after their initial meeting where Jessi Lynn talked Prue's ear off and Prue barely got a word in, they have gotten along well and even become friends.  Whenever I listen in on them, Jessi Lynn still seems to do most of the talking, but it seems to work well for them!

So, that's it for now.  Definitely had to introduce these two special girls today because Jessi Lynn would not tolerate them going unmentioned, but I have some others to introduce as well.  My next post will be about our exciting news!


  1. Lovely post! Jessi Lynn is quite the character! It's fun to learn more about her. Pru is so pretty and sounds so sweet. Maybe she can be the link between Jessi Lynn and Pea? :o)

  2. You have the most wonderful Doll Family and I can only imagine all the fun you must have! I am really happy you were able to adopt one of Paulette's dolls~~I love them!
