Pippa Dolls

Today the mail was sweet! I got my first Marie Doll and she is perfect! If you don't know what  a Marie Doll is I have included some info. Happy Looking!

From Wikipedia:

Pippa was a "pocket-sized" fashion doll offered by British toymaker Palitoy between 1972 and 1980. She was a 6.5 inch fashion doll with numerous friends, fashions, an apartment, a car, even her own hair salon. She was marketed as "the pocket money fashion doll that puts fashion in your pocket"; her small stature also meant that production costs were lower than her competitors such as Sindy and Barbie.
The Pippa doll had lots of different fashions, including miniskirts, minidresses and top and bottom combos. There were also more regal, formal dresses, and outfits relating to different jobs.
Employing subtle makeover techniques and fashion variations, Palitoy was able to produce over 30 different Pippa and Friends by using only 3 head molds, different coloured vinyls and hair styles. Pippa's first three friends launched in 1972 were Marie, Tammie and Britt. To reflect Britains increasingly diverse ethnic population Pippa later had an Asian friend named Jasmine and a black friend named Mandy. More friends like Gail, Emma, Rosemary and Penny and a boyfriend Pete were also added to the line.
