Overview


These are â??The Cheeksters and this is how they all came about...

I just wanted to give you a little history on them. This idea was first conceived when our son Jimmer was born back in 1989. My other son TJ was 7 at the
time and when we brought Jimmer home, TJ was intrigued by the cheeks that Jimmer had and commented about them frequently. One day, because TJ knew that I
liked to dabble in making different craft items, he said to me â??Mommy you should make a doll that looks like Jimmer with his big cheeks, then you can call
them â??The Cheekstersâ?. Well at the time I just laughed and said it was a cute idea but didnâ??t really consider something like that until years later when
Jimmer was about 5 or so and he still had those cheeks!

I decided to give it a try just for fun because I really enjoyed trying to create things. They first started out as a sock that I stuffed with cotton and
drew a face on them. Then I decided that I wanted to put his big feet on them too so then the doll looked like a face with big cheeks and big feet (if
youâ??ve seen Jimmerâ??s size 14 feet youâ??ll know why I wanted to add those on to the doll) and of course we used TJâ??s idea for a name and called them The
Cheeksters. The difference of how they looked back then and how they look now is how far Iâ??ve come at perfecting them just the way I wanted them to look.

When we started we thought of 7 different characters. They were Jimmer Jammer, (of course for baby Jimmer), Talented TJ, Lovely Lindsay, Mischievous
Michael, Sweet Suzy, Neat Ned, and Rapper Roberto, . When my son TJ was in high school and I had revisited the idea of trying to do something with the
Cheeksters, I asked him to write a little poem that went along with each of those. Then we added Messy Marvin, Cool Calvin, Moviestar Monica, Curly Q
Carla, and on and on. I probably have about 20 or 30 characters now and the sky is the limit with them.

Finally I decided to write a series of books about The Cheeksters. The main character is Jimmer Jammer and the title of the books will be called â??The
Jimmer Jammer Stories� with stories about the Cheekster characters. The stories will have a moral theme to it with Jimmer Jammer giving some advice to the
young readers at the end. My son Jimmer didnâ??t even know that I was working on these books. He knew of the Cheekster dolls that I had all over the house
during his growing years, but didnâ??t know about the books. I recently showed them to him. He approved and hopes that they do well.

So we hope that you and your children enjoy them.
