The outfit coordinates with Barbie's Orange Blossom. Since Orange Blossom is the bridesmaid dress, it;s usually associated with Midge more than Barbie.That's one of the reasons I like to see Flower Girl on a Skooter, since she is sort of Midge's counter part, like Skipper is Barbie's. (It's like one of those story problems from school: "Skooter is to Midge as Skipper is to...?")
The dress from Flower Girl was copied in pink and called Party Pink. It was one of Skipper's Pak fashions.
I've gone over the history of Skooter in previous posts, so I won't go over it again. She was Skipper's first friend, produced only from 1965 to 1967. Even with such a short run, Skooters are plentiful, easy to find, and not usually very expensive.
This is a Skooter you might have seen before, if you saw my post from when I bought her at a doll show. It was the same day I bought another Skooter, along with a Tutti and two Skipper dolls, from the lady who, along with her sister, had owned them as a child. This is the Skooter with the turned up toes on her left foot, which I paid $6 for. (That post was last October.)
|The curled toes make it hard for her to keep her shoe on.|
