My Twinn, the customized doll line that was recently sold off by eToys, seems to back in business. The My Twinn web site has a new look that has been dressed up for the holiday season, too. According to the Roanoke BBB, the company is now owned by TPC Acquisition, Inc. in Chatham, VA.
With the bankruptcy of eToys and the transition to TPC Acquisition, there have been many stories and accounts of My Twinn orders that have gone unfulfilled and dolls who were sent back for repair going missing. One such account has got a happy ending thanks to a Delaware bankruptcy judge who was able to track down a missing My Twinn doll that had been sent back to the hospital. According to DelawareOnline:
Very few creditors in a big-business bankruptcy case walk away as happy as a 9-year-old girl in DeSoto, Texas.
Thanks to the efforts of a bankruptcy judge in Delaware, Renee Hearne got her $150 doll back Wednesday after it disappeared as part of a roughly $106 million Internet toy-company bankruptcy. The blond-haired, blue-eyed doll, named Ginger, was waiting for Renee when the third-grader got home from school.
“I was so surprised. I missed her,” Renee said. “She looks the same thing as me.”
In Wilmington, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Brendan Linehan Shannon pursued the whereabouts of the 23-inch doll after Renee’s mother, Carol Hearne, wrote him a certified letter last week.
I hope this is a new start for the My Twinn company! I hope that all the other dolls sent to the My Twinn doll hospital will be returned to their owners sooner rather than later. Only time will tell whether the third time will be the charm for the My Twinn company.
