Today’s Friday Guy is Aaron Carter who some of you may remember as the younger brother of Nick Carter from The Backstreet Boys. Aaron had a few hits of his own as a pre-teen and I think was aged about 14 when this doll was produced. Play Along Toys were a division of Jakks Pacific so as you would expect this is a well made doll.
There were two versions of this doll produced, this is the second version. He has a different hairstyle to the original doll. I believe both were produced with a couple of different outfits. Naomi got him from eBay. I don’t know if he was sold here in Australia. He is articulated at his waist, elbows, wrists, knees and ankles and sports painted on underpants. He originally held a microphone in one hand but he will have to share with Kruse.
Aaron was originally renamed Brad but now goes by Kerby. The articles linked also show the earlier doll and comparisons with some other articulated male dolls and action figures.
