Mystery Head

Today I want to show you another of the dolls from the doll collection that was given to us. This one is most definitely a Frankendolly. She has been put on to a Barbie body. We don’t recognise the make of this head.

It is quite a nicely made head, not squishy but not super hard either. Her lips have been re-painted at some stage. You can see that her eyes are quite detailed. Her hair is rather sparsely rooted at the centre but it is thick enough that she doesn’t have bald spots.

At the moment she is at Doll Spa getting the red transfer off and her hair washed and conditioned. I will post more photos later. We think she has a bit of a Marilyn Monroe thing going on so I’ll probably redress her in something slinky.

If anyone knows what doll this head came from we’d love to know.

  2. Howdy,
    She is definitely made with the Action Girl/ Dollikin head sculpt which was used in the early 70’s for Dollikin by Uneeda here in the USA and by Palitoy over in England for their Action Girl. I wonder if she is a Hong Kong clone from the 80’s, as a lot of companies re-used old head sculpts.

    • I hadn’t thought of Action Girl/Dollikin. I’ll have to compare the face with Naomi’s Dollikins. I like your theory as there were a lot of clone dolls made in Hong Kong and as you say many companies did reuse those old head sculpts.
