She's Savannah Gene by Ashton Drake.
Gene was designed by Mel Odom and introduced at Toy Fair in 1995. I had wanted one since then, but only got my first one (actually, two.)at a yard sale about 6 or 7 years ago.
Although Gene never aged, she was produced as a star from the fourties through the fifties.
Gene is 15 and a half inches tall. This Gene isn't as articulated as the later ones were. They have jointed knees at least. This makes Gene pretty stiff and not able to be posed in many realistic ways.
I always thought she was so pretty though.Gene was discontinued for a while and now the new Gene has a different face. I don't like the new one.
I was lucky enough to get some of my Gene's at an auction, where only one other person was bidding on them.Practically all of the stuff was NRFB, and some still in the shipper boxes.
|This girl had never been out of her box until this photo shoot. I'm waiting for a glass case of some sort so they can stay dust free. And yes, her hair is still in the net. I'm bad with hair and it was windy. I thought it would be safer for now!|
|She's 'Savannah', so she's supposed to look like she's on a savannah. Get it? (A savannah is a grassland with few trees. Actually, she's in my garlic.It has grown quite nicely, hasn't it?)|
Tomorrow is Skipper Saturday! See you then.
