The image shows a Tammy doll (made by Ideal Toy Corporation) wearing a pair of handmade pants and a hand-sewn shirt. She stands next to a piece of furniture that is just her size, and it looks like a curio cabinet or china hutch. On this hutch are dozens of little tiny dishes with decorative paint, neatly arranged. The tammy doll's hair is drawn back in a pony tail. The wallpaper behind her is purple or lilac-colored. She looks at the camera with the forlorn eyes of the vintage Tammy doll, but it does look like she has been repainted with soft color to her lips. The fabric of her handmade pants is decorated with very small nautical print, showing sailboats, anchors, and very small red fish.

Image shows Mattel's Ken doll wearing a traditional Kwanzaa hat with a green geometric-patterned shirt and mustard yellow pants. The female fashion doll standing beside him is a "Photographer" doll from the Lammily doll company. She has a curly afro hairstyle, and she wears a hand-made poncho with a colorful African-style print. Her skirt is red with a sparkly overlay of tulle. Behind them, on the wall, is a painting of Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, and the furniture behind them consists of a wicker loveseat and a dark wood china hutch (which houses both elegant pieces of china and a collection of books).
