This week I have been doing some interior painting so haven’t wanted to get dolls out to photograph. Instead I delved into my files. Today’s Friday Girl is Butterfly Art Kira, one of a very controversial set of dolls released in 1998. These dolls are often put on eBay as rare or “recalled” . As far as I am aware Mattel did not recall them and they were not particularly rare although as usual not all areas had all the dolls on sale. In Australia for example we could not always buy Christie and Kira .
The main reason for the fuss was the tattoos which look pretty innocuous by today’s standards. I think the skimpy outfits were also an issue.
