The Happy Family Connection
In 2002 Mattel gave us Midge (in pregnant and not-so pregnant variations) and her husband Alan. Their son Ryan was made using the LFOK standard body. This brunette little boy is a charming addition to the world of Barbie and many consider the Happy Family to be an adjunct to the world of Kelly and friends. The Happy Family clothing sets fit Kelly and friends too.
Ryan was included in 3 sets, each with an AA variation released. The first set came with Dad pushing Ryan in a stroller. The second set also came with Dad with Ryan riding in a toy car and the third Ryan came as part of a 4 doll Hometown Fair set.
Daughter Nikki is also one of the Happy Family kids, as a younger toddler than Kelly and friends. Several toddler neighbors were released in a trio.
The very-hard-to-find Happy Family Neighbors also included a brunette little girl using Kelly's standard mold. She is considered one of the Kelly holy grails as tracking her down and affording her is just a dream to many collectors.
