Since Jack is one of the kids that is so busy in the kitchen right now (see post of February 4th) it is a good time to spotlight him -- my next "meet the Joe Pye Clan" post. And Jack is also the best kid to start with in introducing the Effner sub-clan, since he was the very first Effner chimera I created.
And yes, the head fit OK (but not entirely well) on the Tonner ten inch body. I must admit I had qualms working with a porcelain head (as opposed to vinyl) and the high tension of stringing - and I still do, to this day, but happily have not broken one yet (knock wood!!) Thus was born Jack, named after a grandson of a good friend. There was never any question that this doll was meant to be "Jack" and not "Lacey"!!
