I remember having comic books with the ad.The offer sounded too good to be true,and it was. It was a bigger ripoff than Sea Monkeys,which I also ordered.
|They were only brine shrimp! "So eager to please they can even be trained...like a pack of friendly trained seals." Yeah right.|
Today's doll isn't the spindly pink variety. She's a solid type of lady made from ivory coloured plastic.
|She's the West Indies lady.|
She must be one of these.
|This must be later than my childhood. Inflation had taken the price up to $3! by this time!|
She measures 2" tall.
I thought she was a Crackerjack prize when I found her,but then I found out she was one of those '100 dolls'.
She's not exactly what I, (or probably most of the kids who ordered the '100 dolls'!),would consider a 'doll',but she makes a nice little figure and looks good on a shelf in a 1/6 scale scene.
She was kind of hard to photograph.
See you tomorrow for another doll.
