I got her online for less than $10 plus shipping! No one else bid on her!
She has that lovely powdery complexion often found on Sample Skippers, so from the pictures I thought there was a chance she might be one.
She's not a Sample Skipper, but she's beautiful just the same.
In looking at these pictures I also see I need to do a little more clean up on that left eye!
When I got her she was wearing some partially made homemade clothes. I was trying to decide what she would look best in with her rosy lips and pinkish colouring, (even though she's a tan skinned doll.). I was trying to decide between Ballet Class,Party Pink, Rolla Scoot,and the outfit I chose, Me and My Doll. I didn't even get to Party Pink or Rolla Scoot,because when I held Me and My Doll up to her, it was so perfect for her.
Me and My Doll was available in 1965-66. It coordinates with Barbie's fashion Dancin' Doll.
Included in Me and My Doll are the dress, pink half slip,white socks, white flats, and a miniature Barbie doll with a matching (removeable) pink and white gingham skirt.
The little skirt is so often lost.I suppose that even if someone found one they wouldn't know what it is.
|The elastic is all stretched out in little Barbie's skirt.|
When we were kids my sister found one of these miniature Barbies at school. I always loved her. She used to be so soft that I was able to lift her tiny arms and watch them go back in place veeeery slowly. Now days she has lost her suppleness, (I know how she feels!)and if I dared lift her arms they might break off!
I didn't use the white socks because there was no way I was going to get those flats on over them. One of them split when I put it on her anyway.As you can see in this picture,this doll's legs have pale rings around them. It's not just colour either. The rings are slightly raised, a bit like welts! I suppose I should have put pants on her instead of a dress, but she still looks very nice this way.
Remember, this was an extra post. Check out my other post today for today's 'official' doll!
