Doll-A-Day 303: Sears.Swedlin Mini Martians Bonnie and Mini

    First things first: Welcome to our two new followers, Oberons Wood and Mistress Laudanum. Thanks for joining us! They both have lovely blogs that you might want to check out.
  Today's doll is two: these Mini Martians.

They were made by Gund/J Swedlin, and sold exclusively by Sears in 1967.




They are around 4 1/2" tall. 

The red head is 'Bonnie'. She's wearing one of the "Stellar Shifts".




Outifts,like the Stellar Shifts,were available separately.

Stellar Shifts was a set of two outfits.

The blonde is 'Mini' or 'Teenie'.







She has her original outfit, but the wrong shoes.They were $1.49!
These dolls are fairly rare, having been sold only at Sears, and only for one year.

For such short lived toys they had  a nice bunch of thing sold to go with them: a house, a space ship, and the extra fashions.

  I happened across these two at a church sale a couple of years ago.I had no idea what they were at the time, but I thought they were pretty neat. I would have loved these when I was a kid!

Look at their ears. They're three dimensional swirls!

Their shoes are soft rubber and are actually removeable.


The dolls are also soft rubber and have a moveable head and arms.
  Tomorrow's Thanksgiving, so I may be back, or I may not be back until Friday.Just in case, Happy Thanksgiving!
