|Pinkie and friends come in these cute boxes that look like a doll case.|
|The back of Pinkie's box. The style of the artwork---and the fact that Pinkie is a dog---makes me think of My Little Pony.|
|Once the tape circles are peeled or cut the insert slides out like this.|
The first time I saw Pinkie Cooper I immediately thought of Peteena.
|Peteena, "The poodle in a bikini", was made by Hasbro in 1966, under license from a Japanese company.She's highly collectable today.|
|There were 5 fashions available for Peteena, including a ski outfit, an evening gown, and a raincoat outfit.|
...plastic on her hands, and some of those clear rubber band things. But the worst things were the heavy duty plastic cable tie things:
|They're way stronger than normal cable ties, plus they are clear and shiny!|
...one on her dog, Li'l Pinkie, and two on Pinkie herself. I could barely get scissors under or around things to cut them.Her hands had to be slid from the hole in the hard plastic holding them to the slit where I could slide them out, and I was afraid I was going to break her elbow joint.
Finally I got Pinkie free of the confounded box!
|Her coat has some nice details. It closes with velcro, but look at those tiny little buttons.|
|There is also a London travel sticker. You can see it in the picture of the box, above Li'l Pinkie's head.|
|The umbrella is rubber with a plastic handle and doesn't open. It would have been nice if it had at least been cloth.|
|With her tiny high heeled feet, there is no way she can stand up on her own, with or without shoes.|
Pinkie has a hat and raincoat,and hot pink rubber boots.Little Pinky just has a coat. But then, Li'l Pinkie is a dog. Uhh....so's Pinkie.(If Mickey Mouse can have a pet and a best friend who are both dogs, plus they are all his size, then why not?)
|Li'l Pinkie is so cute. When I was a kid I probably would have bought a toy that looked like her all by herself. But then, I had an obsession with Bandit, from Jonny Quest too.|
Pinkie has nothing on under her raincoat. A simple dress would have been nice, so she could take her coat off. At least she has molded on underwear.
Her legs click like Barbie legs, and her head rotates so she can look up and tilt it to the side. She's not quite as good at looking down.
|She has little spots on her legs.|
|I said she had human feet, but Ivy pointed out that dogs have feet like this anyway. Pinkie is designed by Carter Bryant, who designed the Bratz dolls, which explains why Pinkie has feet like a Bratzillaz doll.|
I like the blushy places on her arms and legs.
|She's articulated at the neck, shoulders, elbows, and hips.Her arms rotate at the shoulders and elbows.|
|The base of her hair pieces shows a bit too much, but the hair is soft and smooth, easy to comb, and not the kind that tangles very easily.|
|Lots of nice details on her little dog face.She also has long rooted eyelashes.Her eyes are painted, but they are so shiny they sometimes look inset.|
|Painted doggy nails and heart shaped paddies.|
|Without her hat she has a little bald doggy head.|
|Do we really need instructions on how to change the ears?|
|Li'l Pinkie's raincoat is removeable too. It closes with velcro.|
|Her head turns side to side,(and in fact, all the way around, although why you'd want to do that I don't know.She's not a Linda Blair dog!) and her ears can be put in different positions..|
Additional accessories I might have suggested: a leash for Li'l Pinkie, a purse to match the raincoat and hat, and,as I said, a dress. Peteena had a tail, which was removeable so she could be dressed. A fluffy tail for Pinkie would have been cute.
Both dolls are sooo cute.I think I especially love Li'l Pinkie!
Now here are some more pictures of Pinkie and Li'l Pinkie, just because they are so photogenic!
Tomorrow, another day, another doll.
