Tutti Friend? Kiddle? Can anyone tell me who this head may be?

by Tracey Cooper
(New Zealand)


Hi there everyone. I purchased this doll mistakenly thinking it was Lori from Mattel's Pretty Pairs Lori n Rori. When she arrived, I realised I was wrong as there are subtle differences. She is on the correct "Tutti" body, but I am now wondering if her head may be a Kiddle put onto the Tutti body.

On the front rim of her head under her chin is Japan and on the back neck rim is Mattel 1. Her hair appears original as it has the string still on the back. I am unsure if the ribbon was original or not.

The closest Kiddle I have found to her is Pretty Priddle from 1967. If anyone can ID her head, I would be so grateful.

MC Hammer Top
by: Suzanne

Hi Ana -
The top is an MC Hammer item from the 1990s (there was a doll and separate clothing). The skirt I don't know - it looks like it is from a much larger doll.

Does anyone know who this doll is?

by Sharon
(New York)

Close up of face

Close up of face

Close up of face
Full body
Full body naked
Naked and twisted

I am hoping one of you experts out there can please help me name this doll. She is a 10" doll who was wearing this green tagged Barbie dress. I cannot find her anywhere on the Internet. She twists and turns at the waist all the way around, at an angle. Her arms are very slightly bent at the elbow, but they are not jointed. She has short brown hair and blue painted eyes. Her lips are small and closed. She is not beautiful enough to be a Barbie. Her butt says 1966 Mattel Inc., U.S. Patented, U.S. Pat. Pend., Made in Japan.

Hi Sharon -
I am not familiar with the doll head - though I think it is a clone. She has a (incorrect for her) TNT Francie Body. Maybe someone can identify her head - does it have any markings on the nape of the neck or inner rim?

Hi,
Thank you for your input. Someone on Ebay said also that it is a Francie body, and her dress is Barbie's 1963 Swinging Easy. They said it was a "Frankendoll". Like you said, wrong head on a Francie body. Unfortunately, I can't find any markings on her neck or head.

Markings?
by: Barbiefanatic

Look on the back of the neck to see if there are any markings...like a U or a V...She might be a Uneeda doll.

I bought the clone barbie and she's gorgeous...
by: Lisa

I bought the unknown beauty and she's is wonderful. However I still don't know who she is.
Tried to check on several sites and compare to photographs.
There are no other markings than 'hongkong' in her neck and 'made in hongkong'on her back. Her arms are from a flexible vinyl, her head is also in vinyl but more rigid, her body and legs are in a sort of plastic, hollow I think as she is not that heavy. Beautiful hair and make up. Her dress has been made with care like you see with older doll clothing, fine details and quality fabrics.
No worries Lisa, she is yours now and nothing else cares.... ;-)
Thanks for all comments! Love, Lisa

Barbaras...
by: Missha

Hello, I don´t know if this helps but, in Mexico they sell this dolls in fairs. They usually come only with a bathing suit, sometimes with a simple dress. Seemstress women use them to make 11 inch doll outfits. When I was a kid and I saw one of these for the first time, I thought it was a Barbie, but the man that was selling it said it was not a Barbie, it was a Barbara. So, in Mexico we know these dolls as Barbaras. I was looking at the photo and your description and it fits. They are made of plastic, it is soft, and they are hallow on the inside of legs and sometimes arms too. Head pops in and out of the neck and is connected by some big ball at the end of the neck, In a way that makes it easier not to break if you are brushing her hair, it just keeps on popping out. Some girls only buy them if they are pretty, which is not usually the case, but sometimes the outfits are pretty good, and then it is when they buy them. They are usually very cheap.
However, I don´t mean to discourage you, maybe this is not the same doll, and it was just made in a very very VERY similar way. I hope it helps.
Good luck with the identification.

Txs for your comment on my clone Barbie
by: Lisa

Many thanks to Missha for the comments on my request to identify my clone Barbie!
As said I bought her and fortunately she was not expensive, I just bought her because of her beauty. In the meantime I collected some real vintage Barbie's not so many as I only like only some particular dolls and their clothes and you might surely know that it becomes too expensive to expand a huge collection!! Once again many thanks for your reaction! Love from a rainy Belgium, Lisa

Maybe Suzette?
by: Anthony

She could be a Suzette doll, circa 1966. My sister had one for Christmas that year. It was featured in Eaton or Simpson Sears Christmas Catalogues , made by Reliable Toys, a Canadian company.
Suzette had a Skipper sized younger sister. Her name was Honey. She had blonde pigtails.
These dolls had wire armatures in legs to give them some posability.

Question About Unknown Doll Vintage No Markings

by Bonnie Jacobsen
(Everett,WA. USA)

Unknown Vintage Doll

Unknown Vintage Doll

She is an 11 1/2 inch tall doll with reddish blonde hair. Her face has a VERY high forehead. Her blue eyes look off to the right side. She has little square metal pins in her feet. There are no markings on her anywhere. Her arms and legs are jointed for up and down movement only.

Hi Barbie -
I can't help you out with this one - she is not a Barbie or from the Barbie family. Maybe a Barbie clone? I'll post it on the site in case anyone else can identify her.

This doll is Mary Make-up from 1964-1967. The face was sort of waxy so girls could apply make up that could easily be removed later.

NOT Mary Make-up but Tressy
by: Martha

Hi, just noticed the picture of the unknown doll, this is NOT Mary Make-up by American Character but 3rd version Tressy by AC with Mary Make-up face. Mary Make-up has short hair, this doll has the growing hair function. I can refere to a great homepage: www.tressydoll.com. Here you can find all about Tressy and there are great pictures.

Barbie Classification

by Chad
(Ohio)


Hello,
Thank you in advance for your time.

The first doll is only marked 1966 Mattel on the bottom. It was in with a Barbie doll and is wearing a Barbie dress. It measures 12" tall and looks to maybe have been made to look like a celebrity?

The second doll I believe is a Barbie. The head sure looks like one and is a pony tail I believe. It is fully unmarked and the only parts of the body that move are the head and arms. the chest all the way to the legs are one piece and don't move. This is why I was stumped to whether it is an early Barbie, experimental one or if the head and arms are on the wrong body. Any information you can give me would sure help. This doll came with a lot of barbie clothes and the popular black and white one piece swimsuit.

Thanks again for you time,
Chad Oakley

Hi Chad -
I do think the first one is a celebrity doll - I can't tell which one from the picture - maybe someone more familiar with them will know. The second one is a Barbie "clone" - there were several different types of Barbie "knock-offs" made in the early sixties.

Celebrity doll looks like Mattel Cheryl Ladd doll
by: Evie K.

Celebrity doll looks like Mattel 1978 Cheryl Ladd doll. I have one, I got her in a bag of dolls and I needed to identify her also. She looks very pretty dressed in the nicer Best Buy Barbie fashions of the later 70's. Hope this helps.

The second doll is a PMA (Plastic Molded Arts) Debby doll. You can recognize her by the "frozen" legs.

Question ABout salt and pepper hair vintage barbie - japanese?

by kat boyle
(tacoma, wa)


I have a Barbie that I just inherited and she has unusual features - namely salt and pepper or frosted black hair. Her forehead is very high and wide. Her eyebrows are more rounded than her "queen of fashion" sister that I also inherited from the same owner. She had a "U" on the back of her head. I can send several pics. One body has a 9 and roman numerals dating 1958 with "pat pending by Mattel" mark. The other has the "Midge 1962 Barbie 1958 Mattel patented" mark. I'd just like to know what or who she is if you can help. Thanks so much! kat

Hi Kat -
This is not a Barbie doll head - it is a clone. it sounds like her head has been placed on a vintage Barbie body. The U may stand for "Uneeda" - The Uneeda company made a Barbie Clone called "Miss Suzette" - perhaps someone more knowledgeable than about about clones can offer more info.

Hi,
Great sight! Learned alot, but I am trying to identify this doll I have. I think it may be a Barbie Bubblecut...but not sure. She has NO marks on her body and I am not sure if her legs and torso are original to her head and arms. Her arms move but her legs are molded to the torso. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Michelle -
Your doll is a Barbie "clone" - one of the lower priced Barbie knock-offs made in the 1960s.

Looks quite like a lemon set Japan Exclusive
by: Debbiefs in Australia

I am pretty sure this is the lemon set Japan Exclusive in my book Japan Barbie - Yasuhiro Sekiguchi Collection on page 50. It should have 6 gold beads as buttons on the front of the top and it seems to have come with a tiny straw type hat, short gloves and yellow flat mod shoes with the bow which is how it is shown in the book.

Please Help ID this Doll Marked Mattel 1966/Taiwan

by Laura
(WI)


I found this doll at Goodwill and thought she could use some love. Her body says (C) Mattel INC 1966/Taiwan. The connector for the head to the body is molded directly onto the body. The back of her head says "Hong Kong"... and amazingly enough, the head and body color match exactly. She apparently had medium brown hair at one point in time.

Looks like 1977 Durham Charly doll head. You can type that into Flickr and see them in box. I bought some of those dolls loose, and was curious about them too as their faces are quite pretty. Your doll body with those markings is most likely Barbie, so you have a Frankendolly.

??Liddle Kiddle??

??Liddle Kiddle??

Doll has long blonde hair that goes past her feet, bangs, and a small pony tail that is on top of her head. She has brown eyes and they are identical to the Liddle Kiddle eyes. She is wearing a dress that has a yellow top and a orange skirt. She has painted-on shorts, and they are yellow. She is not posable, like Liddle Kiddles are. She is 2 1/2 inches tall. She doesn't have painted-on shoes.

Liddle Kiddle-Clone
by: Anita

Of course I don't know if this is one of the dolls I am talking about, but we had this kind of dolls in the late Sixties, they used to be fixed on a key chain. We did not know that Liddle Kiddle did exist, we only had these, bought them in our small toy store in the south of Berlin (West). They came together on a card for putting them on the store's desk, twenty pieces or so and all with different hair, for less than one D-Mark each. We bought them, removed the chain from the top of the head and played with them. I still have some, love them this much! :) They have nothing but 'Hong Kong' on their back.

Question on Doll Clothing on card

by Debbie
(Overland Park)


Hi, I have this card of a clothing outfit for a doll . There are no identifying marks on the card. The clothing items are "sewn" on the card. The card is blue with a yellow line around it. There is a graphic of a girl riding on a scooter with buildings behind her. The girl looks like Midge to me. the clothing is a red and white gingham style shirt. Only tag I find in it is "Hong Kong". There are denim overalls - and without removing the overalls, I can't see/find a tag. There is also a red pair of low heel shoes. Can you help me identify if this clothing was for Barbie & Friends, the age of it, the name of the outfit, etc. - or is it just a generic type of outfit for such dolls. Thanks for your help. I have had this for years and had no clue what it is!


Hi Debbie -
I do not know what this is, but do not think it is a Barbie or Mattel item - perhaps another fashion doll. Hopefully someone will know what it is.

Hi there,

I have this fur wrap thing and a red veil/hat that I'm not sure is Vintage or not? It came with a bunch of other vintage Barbie outfits that I picked up at the thrift store but these two items I just can't seem to place... One other Barbie collector told me they were NOT vintage, but I wanted to get a second opinion and if they were not vintage, what outfits they were from?

Your help is greatly appreciated, and also AMAZING website, thanks for having it!!

Thanks very much Alan -
I do not recognize these pieces as vintage Barbie items. If they were with vintage Barbie items they could very well be homemade (in that era almost all of our mothers were skilled seamstresses) or from other dolls.

Identify three lovely vintage Barbie dresses


Hi: Your site has been extremely helpful in identifying almost all of the clothes that I have from the Vintage/Mod Eras but I am still having trouble identifying these three dresses. I am beginning to think the dress on the far right is newer and just made to look vintage but the other two appear to be vintage in every regard. All three dresses have snap closures. The two on the left also have a bead sewn on the top of the snap to finish them. The dress in the middle is cotton & the other 2 are silk/satin. The blue one on the left also has a chiffon material with white butterflies as an overlay. If anyone can assist me with the identification of these three dresses it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Lynn

60s clone of Senior Prom

Does anyone know who made a clone of Barbie's Senior Prom in the 60s? From my best recollection, the satin was copper and the tulle was black. I have been looking for it for a long time, and if I knew the maker or for which clone it was made, it would help my search immensely.
