|Krissy can turn her head, and her arms and legs are strung,so she has some flexibility.Unfortunately, sometimes the stringing becomes loose, and she gets Dangly Limb Syndrome!|
Krissy was discontinued in 2001.Ivy was a bit young for such tiny toys, but as with her siblings, I was always there, and she played with things beyond her age recommendation.I don't recommend that in general, but I think some age recommendations can be disregarded with supervision, and taking the child into consideration:how they play,how mature they are despite their age,(Do they still put toys in their mouths,etc.) and their intellect. Anyway,Ivy had just about all the Krissy playsets that included a Krissy doll:Baby Layette,Scrub-A-Dub-Dub,and Swing 'N Play,as well as the Barbie and Krissy set,Barbie and Krissy Stroll 'N Play. I'm not sure if one of them had the sets Barbie and Krissy Bedtime Baby and Walking Barbie with Baby Sister Krissy.I know the bits have been around the house for years, but I'm not sure which of us had them, or if they were new or second hand. Other sets were Barbie and Krissy Magical Mermaids, and Barbie and Krissy Princess Palace. There were also some playsets that didn't come with a doll, the Barbie Nap 'N Play Nursery,Krissy Playroom Playset and Baby Krissy Home Nursery.

The Stroll 'N Play set came with two dolls.In the Caucasian set the second doll was a light brown skin tone. Below is the African American Krissy, and in the comparison with three dolls you can see all three skin tones.
|This is not a Krissy outfit. I think it's Happy Family Nikki.|
|All three skin tones, light brown,pink, and dark.The first doll has damage to her head, but she's the only example of this skin tone I have.|
