Ma Petite Chaise (No. 5)

1:6 scale Betawi Chair








There’s nothing new dolly wise here - I’m patiently awaiting my FR pre-orders. I say “patiently” lightly because Integrity’s pre-order system takes so darn loooooooooooong to get a dolly! Nothing interests me from Mattel, or any other manufacturer, so out comes another chair for my dose of dolly play. 
D7ana over at phillycollector has been sharing info about boy band dollies and that has inspired me to pull out my one and only band boy (Max/The Wanted) to demo the chair. Max’s original body is ree-dic-o-lis so he’s been rebodied.







The Betawi chair, in 1:1 scale, harkens from Indonesia. Betawi furniture style is simple without carving or ornamentation. This barrel shaped chair, with vertical slats back and arms, was popular in the 19th century and is still in use to this day as an occasional chair. 


This 1:6 scale Betawi chair is made by WoodenFace, priced around $18.99.
Max's Dragon (muscular) body provides plenty of articulation for him to enjoy his tub chair.







Wait until I get my hands on that little show-off Harper!

  1. Max is incredibly handsome. Sorry, I didn't pay much attention to the chair. I'm sure it's lovely. Not as lovely as Max though. I have got to add him to my collection. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Can’t say I blame you, he’s awesomely buff and could make January on a beefcake calendar. ;)

  3. Haaa, haaa! You gotta love Harper. She gets into every photo. I never thought she could be this much fun when I saw her in the store. But then she wasn't the real Harper soooo ... shrug.

    I love Max's face and hair style. I see what you mean about the body. Maybe I will just ask for the heads ... sounds creepy though, lol. "I vant de heads of 1Direction und de heads of Zee Vanted." Okay, no more Natasha accent ;-D

    Poor Max, not realizing that Harper caused your exclamation. Harper has excellent clothes taste: I love that outfit on her.

    She's probably feeling shortchanged by not having that room for herself. Not that I want to come between you and any intended reprimands in store for Ms. Harper the Minx. She's just soooo cute ;-)

    1. Harper is one of those girls who want the front of the bus, the back of the church, and the center of attention. I’m quite cross with her for interrupting Max's shoot and we have had words. To which, I might add, she got in the last one.

      When it comes to the boy band blokes, it doesn’t sound creepy at all to ask for heads only. I wish we could figure out how to make that work. Your Transylvanian accent is a good start – they might give them to us if only to make us go away. ha-ha!

    2. That would be an easy and cheap way to get the heads. Fake accent for them, lol. But I have seriously got to do some trading or something for these new guys. Need to do a post to that point ;-D

  4. Oh and to comment on the room - both thumbs up. Love how your rooms can match the character. Max's room "looks like" a place he would be comfortable in. I love the details of the beer and the cards and the peanuts. Warm and comfy looking.

    Wonder what Harper and Max would think of each other?

    Thanks also for the Dragon body tip. And for the price of the chair - not bad.

    1. Thanks. It’s a recycled set - Max liked it’s frill-lessness

      Max and Harper? He’d need a lot of courage to make that work. ;D

    2. LOL, Why'd I say that? That would be a scary (for Max) and amusing (for me) event.

  6. I agree with the others! Love the doll, the room and the chair. It reminds me of a set I saw once. I wonder if it is still there...hmmm.

  7. What a new body will do for a man! What a hunk. Oh Harper, did you get enough attention as a child? Awesome chairs!

  8. Bahhahahaha! His response totally cracked me up, love the wide eyes and raised eyebrows!! XD

    Everything in the room is just fantastic! Those chairs and the table are great! Perfect for poker night!

    1. Thanks, Heather. :) All the muscles in the world won’t stop a guy from wussing out if he thinks something is going to ruin his poker night. He was so intimidated by my outburst he set about finding an extra stool and said not another word. Ha!

  9. Hello from Spain: your collection is great guys. It has a lot of guys and very different. You saw them at the bar. Wonderful diorama. The chairs are very nice and real. I like Max. I had not seen before. In Spain, this doll is not for sale. Keep in touch.

  10. LOL, Max did look properly scared. It just keeps him on his handsome toes. I like his facial hair and head treatment. It appears thick but without molding. The set seems as though it was built around him with all his comforts in mind.

    1. hee hee He was rather intimidated. I made it up to him by allowing him a good evening of poker with the blokes.

      I agree with you about his hair. Vivid Immaginations did a good job of capturing his close shave look, and it’s more attractive than the molded hair of the other band members.

  11. I looked at the chair, then looked at Max ooo la la...then I started looking around the room. Ok, what is wrong with me I was looking at the decor more than anything else. LOL
    Great job all around!
