Update on THE BRANDI DOLL

From Wikipedia:

The Brandi Doll was an 18 inch (460 mm) fashion doll introduced by Ideal Toy Corporation in the year 1972. Advertised as “Crissy’s Beautiful Friend” like the Crissy Doll, Brandi had a "growing hair" feature. Brandi could wear the many fashions that were created for Crissy and her companion dolls like the Kerry doll.

Brandi came dressed in a burnt orange swimsuit with shiny orange clog shoes with elastic ties. The Brandi Doll had tanned skin, blonde hair and painted blue eyes. Brandi was only released with a Posin’ body style, meaning the doll had a swivel waist that had limited movement in both the horizontal and vertical planes so the doll could strike various poses for the child at play.


I wish my name was Barbie. Maybe this doll was a trend setter. Someone who shall not be named seems to date a girl that has something in common with this doll. That is all I am going to say about that.
