These are 18 in. affordable play dolls from 1998. Hiker Boy by Battat, in his original outfit, was carried by K-Mart. Madison Mullins with violet eyes, in a borrowed outfit, was a Target exclusive.
Pansy, on the left, and Daisy, 17 in., 1996 by Daisy Kingdom, Inc., were sold via a coupon in Simplicity Patterns. Made of hard vinyl with embossed hair and painted features, they came without an outfit, only underwear. Simplicity had a series of Daisy Kingdom patterns for little girls that also included the same pattern in doll size. I made Daisy’s romper. In front is 15.5 in. Sarah Jane, a Victorian doll with head, arms, and legs of vinyl and a soft, stuffed body. I made her dress from the Simplicity pattern.
