Doll-A-Day 2017 #64: Teacher Barbie Kids

  Today's dolls are 2.These are the kids from the 1995 Teacher Barbie set.

These are their original outfits.


As far as I know though, these dolls also came with other combinations of hair colours.There was also an African American set.

They are 4 1/2" tall.
With that hair she's even bigger than Tommy and Kelly!
The same sculpts were used for the 1978 Mattel Rosebud babies, and the Heart Family kids.
I always thought these dolls weren't scaled right for Barbie.
Or in this case, Midge.And they have been babies and kids old enough for school.I always thought they were too big for babies, but they are awfully short to be school kids.And with their curved baby legs, they don;t stand very well.
Their heads are as big as the adults heads,and too big for their bodies.
Their legs are bigger than midge's arm! (Mind you, Midge has some skinny arms.)


I think 'toddler' might have hit it about right.
Here's a size comparison:current Chelsea friend,older Kelly friend,Teacher Barbie kid,Happy Family Nikki,Barbie sister Krissy,1973 marked Mattel baby,China marked Barbie baby,Happy Family newborn baby

  See you tomorrow for another doll.

  1. Greetings! Just wanted to let you know I'm really enjoying reading about your dolls. We're practically TWINS! I'm a *trifle* older (ahem), but I live in the Midwest as well. I collect mostly composition dolls, and make my living restoring them as Hazel Twigg. We doll people and lovers of old things must stick together! Keep up the good work. You make 80's dolls seem interesting - something I never thought could happen.

    Cheers!

    1. Wow! Thank you! I'm glad to hear you're enjoying the blog. It's great to hear people are appreciating what I'm doing,because posting a doll every day,(apart from being a really stupid idea!),is a pain in the neck sometimes! I visited your blog and I'm very interested in your book!
