Doll-A-Day 116: Skipper Saturday: Quick Curl Skipper

  Today's Skipper Saturday doll is Quick Curl Skipper in her original dress.This version was produced from 1973 to 1975.




On this chilly Spring day she has decided it's better to just hang out in the Dreamhouse.(Actually, this is the Barbie A Frame House.)

She's wearing her original blue and white dress.She should also have white shoes and a blue hair ribbon.

Quick Curl Skipper,like Quick Curl Barbie and her Quick Curl friends, had very fine wires amongst her hairs.This was so her hair could be curled with the special tool that she came with.


If you've ever bought some doll stuff and been confounded by that thing on the right, that's a Quick Curler. They also came in white.Skipper also came with tiny hair barrettes.

In 1976 Mattel came out with Deluxe Quick Curl Skipper. She had a shawl. And a different dress.


Both Quick Curl Skippers have freckles, the only Skipper's to do so.
Um,Skipper, your wires are showing.(That pinkish stuff you can see in the left side is a cluster of wires.)

Skipper's going to relax and wait to see if she receives any house mates.Tomorrow is the BIG doll show. No telling what goodies are to be found! I hope we make some money too of course...
