Doll-A-Day 2017 #323: Kitty by Bonomi

  Today's doll is this girl.

She's Kitty.

She was made by Bonomi of Italy.


The Kitty doll was sold in the United States too.

I think this is from the 60's.

She's about 15" tall.

I'm not sure quite what I think of her.


I like her dress.

It's actually a sheer dress with a stretchy pink body suit underneath. There's nothing holding it up except the stretchiness of the fabric, because there are no shoulders or straps.

And she's wearing cute shoes, even if one does need a pom pom replaced.

When I look up Kitty dolls I see lots of really pretty Kittys. But this girl is in need of some TLC to reach her potential.

Her face is a bit paled out.

Her arms have paled out a lot too,but her legs are still pink.

That may have something to do with the materials they're made out of. The head and arms are a soft vinyl, while the body and legs are hard plastic.

And those bangs need to lay down.

I tried to flatten them, but they weren't having it.
 With her bangs standing up you can see what a weird shaped forehead she has.

She was also being a huge pain because she's strung,or at least, she's supposed to be. Her legs are just hanging there,and her head? Not attached AT. ALL.

She does have some things going for her though. She has pretty glass eyes.

Her lashes are those feathery looking ones like the Alta Moda S girls have.

I think she'll need some colour rejuvenation. I'm not sure if I'm up to that.

I'm sure she was a beautiful doll when she was new.
That's it for today. I spent the day digging through tubs of dolls. I found quite a few interesting things,some I had forgotten we had. Check back tomorrow to see what doll I come up with.


  1. In a way this doll reminds me of the Lenci dolls. I think it's the side-glancing eyes and pouty mouth.

    1. I hadn't thought about that, but I can see your point. Sort of an updated look in vinyl.


Thanks in advance for your comments.
