Doll ID
« on: April 10, 2018, 09:48:54 AM »
Hello everybody! I need some doll identifying help!

I've had this doll since I was about six (so, around 1999), I got her in a charity shop. She has the same proportions as Barbie, but a bigger head. When I got her, she had a blue dress, ankle-length, with a sparkly bodice and a gauzy skirt with white stars on it (I no longer have the dress). I also got another doll at the same time who was in a similar style but had longer hair. She has 'Made in China' on her back, and some marks on the back of her head that I can't read. I'd love to know what sort of doll she is, if she's just a generic Barbie knock-off or something different.

Also, while I'm here, I may as well ask if anyone recognises this doll. She is from the 1960s/70s (I bought her in a bundle of dolls from that era) and has 'Made in Hong Kong' written on her. The dress isn't original; when I got her she was wearing a woollen outfit which I also don't think was original.

The last doll, looks like a Sindy doll.

A mother pony can be protective of her young just like dogs.

Who wants to changed this sig into ponies?

She does look very Sindy-like, though she has a child body rather than a teenage one. Perhaps she was inspired by/imitating the Sindy look.

I cross-posted this on the Monster High Arena and someone there ID'd the second doll as an imitation of Barbie's little sister Tutti.

Still hoping to find out about the first doll.

The top doll looks a lot like some of Tomy's offerings, particularly the Dream Dancer doll, but her lips are parted.  Or one of those early days of the Disney Store extremely off-model princesses because they got better at the likenesses. Cinderella probably given the description of the dress. I'll do some digging.

I actually recently managed to identify her dress! It was a glow-in-the-dark Betty Teen dress by Tong, third from the left in this picture:

However, my doll doesn't seem to be a Betty Teen, so obviously that wasn't her original dress. The world of dolls-that-look-a-bit-like-Barbie is vast and mysterious.

That dress is AWESOME. I kind of want it for ME.

I can't tell from the photos online of her, but is it possible she's a Hornby Cassy doll?  She is definitely a weird mystery. Maybe you can post pics of the markings on her head.

Just Googled Hornby Cassy dolls, and she does look rather similar!

Here's a couple of photos showing her head markings. They're quite difficult to make out in real life, let alone on camera, so this is the best I could do:

And here's a comparison photo of her with a 90s Barbie. They have pretty similar bodies, but her head is quite a bit larger: https://imgur.com/a/uI93mTh

She is certainly a mystery. Thanks for taking an interest in her :)

EDIT: Just been peering at her head. It seems to say ULUYEE, which is obviously complete nonsense :lol: It's definitely six letters, and I'm pretty sure the fourth letter is a Y.

I wonder...do you think she could be a Lovely Patsy doll? This kind of looks like almost the same word, followed by "Patsy" but it's a newer doll.  The words almost look like ULUVLE to me LUV-LE, Lovely.
