Vintage Truly Scrumptious Doll

The Truly Scrumptious Doll was one of the first "celebrity" Barbie Dolls, released along with the Julia doll in 1969.

The doll is based on a character of the same name from the wildly popular kids movie, Chitty, Chiity, Bang, Bang. Truly Scrumptious was played by Sally Ann Howes in the 1968 movie.

The movie is loosely based on a story written by James Bond creator, Ian Fleming, for his son. The movie is set around 1910 - 1920.

There were two Truly Scrumptious Barbie Dolls - a "standard" one on the traditional straight leg Midge/Barbie body and a Talking Truly Scrumptious.  Both dolls have a Francie head with blue eyes, rooted eyelashes and blonde hair - no bangs, pulled back in a low ponytail and curled at the bottom.  Both dolls were only made for one year and can be hard to find, especially in mint condition or NRFB.
