Skooter was Skipper's best friend from 1965 to 1967.
Skooter came as a blonde, brunette or red head,but all had brown eyes and those cute freckles.
The first edition of Skooter was a tan skinned straight leg doll.
That doll was followed by a pink skinned straight leg doll, a tan skinned bend leg doll, and a pink skin bend leg.
This is the pink skinned bend leg Skooter..
Unfortunately, this was the last edition of Skooter. After this doll, Skooter was discontinued.
This version of Bend Leg Skooter came in a polka dot cropped blouse and denim shorts. Today she's wearing Skipper's Trim Twosome outfit.
Trim Twosome includes the striped,pleated dress,white coat,orange flats, and orange purse.
I have two very similar orange purses, and I have never been sure which is the right one.
|The one I used in the photos is on the right.|
Or are they both the right one? They're a little different. The style is the same,but the vinyl is completely different. I chose the less cheap looking one for the photos.
I've seen some pictures of the set in package, and it looks more like the cheap one. But I would think it would be the better looking one. Can anybody shed any light on this?
Skooter is NOT Midge's little sister. Nor is she Allan's little sister. She is, however, Ricky's sister. According to the Barbie novels published in the 60's, Skipper went over to "Skooter and Ricky's house".
Skooter's somewhat cartoonish face (compared to the rest of the more realistic Barbie family and friends),is practically identical to the face of the much larger Charmin Chatty doll.
|Who's copying who? Charmin came first.|
Tomorrow is another Shrunken Saturday. (Where does the time go?) See you then.
