Liddle Kiddles were introduced by Mattel in 1966.They were tiny rubber dolls with wire armatures, sort of like mini versions of Barbie's sister Tutti. In fact, some of them share Tutti's head mold.
|Apple Blossom, like all Kiddles, has rooted hair, and is jointed at the neck. Her body and limbs are bendable.|
The Kologne Kiddles appeared in 1968.
|They came in bottles, like cologne.Get it? The bottle opens all the way down, once the cap that holds it closed is removed.|
There were nine different dolls, all named after flowers.
|Her green hair is supposed to be like a green apple, and the flowers in her hair are apple blossoms.|
|Her hair is still in it's original set.|
Apple Blossom was produced in 1968 and '69.
The line was discontinued in 1970. Kiddles in general were discontinued in 1971, probably for the same safety issues that ended the Tutti line. Kiddles reappeared in the 90's,made by Tyco.They had a different style body and different head molds than the classic ('Klassic'?) Kiddles. They just didn't have the same charm.
Still feeling lousy. I think I have an ear infection. Stop in tomorrow for another doll.
