She's a Cupcakes doll.
She is from a series called Sugar and Shine,and her name is Honey Drop.
Cupcakes were originally made by Tonka in 1990. This was followed by Kenner made Cupcakes in 1991 and 1992. (Tonka was purchased by Hasbro in 1991. Kenner was one of Hasbro's subsidiaries.) This doll is from the brief comeback in the late 90's. She's from 1998,and made by Fun Source.
The dolls were revived again by various other companies in the early 2000's and mid 2010's.
These dolls had two gimmicks: When their skirts are turned wrong side out they become a cupcake,with their hats becoming the icing.
Their other gimmick was, they were scented to match their theme flavour. I'm not sure if the Fun Source dolls had the scent. They were considered to be reissues of the original Tonka dolls,and look very similar.
She has a painted on top under the cloth skirt's high waist.
The cloth skirts were removable. This one is still stitched to the rubber skirt/cupcake.
She would also have come with a comb that had a hook on it so it could hang on her wrist.
She has no legs,and is jointed at the neck and shoulders.
|Her arms can be moved independently from each other, but they seem to prefer moving together.|
You can watch a commercial for the Tonka Cupcake dolls HERE. You can watch a commercial for a later version of the dolls HERE.
This isn't a doll that really apeals to me. I got her accidentally in a bag of thrift store dolls. She won't be staying, but I thought while she was here, some of you might find her interesting.
Tomorrow will be another doll. Please join us then.
