Joey Raikes, the first boy in the Sunny State Hitty House, welcomed Michael The Artist yesterday.
Michael set to work immediately in his new studio. Joey is wondering if Michael will give him lessons. He might want to be an artist when he grows up.
Joey is a Basswood Hitty doll by Robert Raikes. He is a 2006 limited edition of 100 pieces and is signed by Robert on the back. Raikes Hitty dolls were sold by the American Kit Co which is no longer in business. You can sometimes find dolls made by Robert Raikes on ebay. This is an afflilate link to Raikes Dolls search and his ebay page.
