There were two different Quick Curl Skipper Dolls released between 1973 and 1977. The doll's hair contained metal fibers that made them style-able without any heat or any other tools. With the included curling wand, you could curl Skipper's hair easily. Both Skipper Dolls are wearing maxi-dresses and include the standard Quick Curl accessories.
While they use the original Skipper face and head mould, they have painted on freckles and eye lashes. These tolls were made in Taiwan and are not the same quality as the original vintage Skipper dolls that were made in Japan. They are prone to their limbs falling off and the hair with the metal fibers is very prone to break off. This can make it difficult to find a doll that is in excellent condition.
The first version is much easier to find. She came in two different boxes. The one pictured below is much more commonly found, therefore the other box is considered to be HTF and therefore more valuable.
