Hard Plastic Fashion Doll

This little doll is made of hard plastic and her arms and head are strung with rubber bands attached to hooks. Her legs are fixed and she has sleep eyes. Her glued on hair is mohair I think. She is marked “Made in Hong Kong” on her back.

This type of doll was fairly common in the late 50s and early 60s and I had a couple of them I think. Many had plastic underwear like this but I don’t recall ever seeing any clothing to fit them on sale. She is about 6″ tall so a little small for my Barbie house but a bit too big for the type of dollshouse I used to have. I had other dolls about 4″ tall who I preferred to play with as a child.

As I have been knitting for Barbie this week I ended up with a couple of garments knitted in a very fine thread which were not a good fit. I decided to lend them to this “Lady Doll” so she would have something proper to wear. I may make her a better fitting outfit later.
