Today’s Friday Girl is one of my African American dolls and I am not sure which one she is. I believe that she has the Christie face issued in 1988 as her head is marked Mattel 1987. She is one of the earlier dolls that I bought and came from a market or from Ebay without her original outfit. I may have replaced the earrings too. I can’t remember as I would have bought her about twenty years ago. She has 1980s big hair and the bent arms on the TNT body. Her identifying feature is probably her eyes which have green with the brown irises. I have looked at several photos of Christie from that era but cannot quite pin her down. This head mold was also used for AA Barbies during that era I believe.
Her outfit I can tell you about. It is Fashion Avenue from the Australian designers issue of 1999. This one is from Jonathon Ward. It originally had a pink tiara which I think broke and a matching bag which I had up until about an hour ago when I picked her off the shelf and it fell down and disappeared into that limbo land that always seems to claim small doll accessories. I’ll look for it later before I vacuum that room.
