Fashion Doll Friday-Tutti


Today I thought I’d mix things up a bit with a cutie from 1966. Barbie’s little sister Tutti.

Tutti was introduced in 1966 along with her twin brother Todd. The unusual feature of these dolls was the rubbery material they were made of. Their bodies were wired inside to make them poseable. Unfortunately this meant that the dolls didn’t age well as the wires would snap and sometimes even poke out of the doll and corrosion meant that the dolls often ended up with green marks on their bodies.

Nevertheless Tutti was a cute doll. I had one myself and so did one of my cousins. I have a couple of Tutti’s and a Todd in my collection today. This blonde Tutti in is in her original outfit except for the shoes. She looks just like the one my cousin had.
