Call me Melvin

I received my holiday catalog from Breyer this week.
I love these catalogs. It's such a pleasure flipping through the pages and looking at all the beautiful models.  
It reminds me of the Sears Wish Books of my childhood, and for a few minutes, I feel like I am ten again. 
I'm going to get out my marker and circle this one!
As good as all of that is, the best part of this year's catalog has got to be the address label. For reasons known only to Breyer, everyone got new first names this year. 
Thanks for the memories - and the belly laugh - Breyer. Melvin Buxton is a big fan!

  2. Thanks to you, Jenn, I found out I am now Steve. That happens to be the name of my Western handler and driver doll.

    1. I wonder what went wrong in Breyer/Reeves' system... 😂

    2. The cross gender names are my favorites.

  3. I have a "post your Breyer name" thread on the Braymere Facebook page, and it's clear this was a system wide issue. There over eighty comments, and only two people have received catalogs with their real first names.
