Doll-A-Day 2019 #10: Hayseed Honey Hill Bunch

  We've had some really weird weather the past couple of days. Yesterday we had sunshine,strong winds,loud thunder,followed by pouring rain...all within a few minutes. That happened more than once too! Today we had the strong winds, and snow. But it was so warm the other day that I was outside doing some stuff in the yard, and photographing today's doll. It's this kid.


She's Hayseed.

 

Hayseed is part of the Honey Hill Bunch.



The Honey Hill Bunch was a line of dolls made by Mattel from 1976 to 1978.


The 'Honey Hill Bunch' were a group of kids between 4" and 6" tall. Hayseed is 6" tall.


They all have vinyl heads and rooted hair,and stuffed cloth bodies.



The dolls had a piece of removable clothing,like a pinafore,shirt, or vest.

  

The 'Bunch' also came with an accessory each. Hayseed came with a big dog,much bigger than the one mine has.
 

This is a Honey Hill dog though. His name is  'Good', and he belonged to the character Lil Kid.



  As you can sort of see in the photo above, the Bunch had Velcro on one hand so they could hold onto their accessory, or each other's hands. (The Velcroed hand held on to the un-Velcroed hand of the other doll.)
  Playsets for the Honey Hill Bunch included a clubhouse...

 

...a clubhouse that came with dolls...
 

...and a Baskin Robbins ice cream store.


They also had a car called the Rickety Rig.



  The faces of the Honey Hill Bunch remind me of Mattel's Baby Beans dolls.


I'm sure it must be the same artist's work. They are from around the same time.
  That's it for today. Join us again tomorrow for another doll.

  2. I don't know this doll but I can relate to her. That's how my hair looks when it is humid or rainy (laugh).
