I just couldn't resist this big brown eyed doll.
Didn't know who she was at first, thought she was Lilo.

knew who she was and wanted.

(After I thought about it, the movie came out 
over ten years ago when she was eleven)

Twist n Turn Skipper

Twist n Turn Skipper 
1967 Mattel, Inc./
U.S. Pat'd/U.S. Pats. Pend/
Made in Japan
Estate Sale find. @ $5.00
Skipper's feet are in rough shape but her sneakers cover the flaws.
When Skipper was found last Saturday she was dressed 
in a mismatched pajama outfit with the sneakers she is wearing. 
I had a pair of Skipper pajamas that I bought probably in 
the early 1980's.  Mattel had a distribution center near 
my home in New Jersey and was closing at the time. 
I picked up a few Skipper outfits (Best Buy?) which were priced 
50 cents to a dollar. 
Suzy Sad Eyes had borrowed the outfit, but let Skipper
wear it for her photo.

Last week Target had a sale on the Midnight Dance Liv Dolls.

Integrity Male Doll

Had a great day finding doll treasures even though it was dreary outside. 
No finds at the Flea Market, the weather scared most vendors away. 
Found this doll at the Thrift Store today. 
At first I thought he was Menelik made by Olmec, but when I got home and
looked at him closely I found he was marked
1996 Integrity Toys. 
Original outfit
I don't think he was ever played with since he still had 
the twist ties and plastic bar attached to his legs. 
Also the back of his shoes were dirty and there is a pink stain on his pants.
His box must have been damaged and someone took him out to save him. 
What's his name?   Is he dressed in a wedding outfit? 
Last question, is there anything I can use to get the pink stain out of his pants.
