Doll-A-Day 2017 #261: Growing Up Skipper

  I got back late last night from our anniversary trip to Canada,so I decided to do the post for yesterday today. You can also check out today's actual post. In the meantime, today's doll is this lady.

She's Growing Up Skipper.

Growing Up Skipper was sold in 1975.

She has long blonde hair that has a slight poof to it.

Her legs are plastic and don't bend. She has a similar face to earlier Skippers.

But this Skipper had a gimmick.

When her arm is rotated, she grows about an inch.

So she has two different skirts to accommodate the height difference,and the 'age' difference.

This is her original outfit. It consists of the short skirt, the long skirt,the red blouse, and she should have red flats and white platform sandals. The short skirt buttons in the back. The long skirt is a wrap around that ties. 

And since she has 'grown up', she also 'grows' breasts!

The arm operates a mechanism under the rubber 'skin' on the torso.

The chest and the height increase at the same time, when the arm is rotated.

As you might have guessed, there was some controversy about this doll. Alot of parents disapproved of the noticeable anatomy.

She's not my favourite Skipper, but  she's an interesting addition to my Skipper collection.

That's it. Don't forget to check out my other post today which will get us both caught up.
