Baby Lisa (9 in.) and Lisa Grows Up (11 in.), 1980 by Effanbee, were sold undressed in a close out sale. They were designed by artist Astri Campbell and are marked Astri on the back. Baby Lisa was designed to represent a three month old. Both are very realistic. I made the outfit for Lisa Grows Up.
The Rose Petal Place collection by Kenner, 1984, included a 6 in. Rose Petal doll, her five friends, and a cottage shaped like a tea pot. The dolls are jointed vinyl with rooted hair and a display stand. All were scented like the flower they represent. Left to right are Lily Fair, Rose Petal, and Iris.
Fashions by Me, 1982 by Hasbro, is a 13 in. unusual fashion doll. It has a one piece plastic body with cutouts along all sides to tuck in her clothing. Over the years a few cracks appeared in the cutouts but it still works as a no-sew solution to sewing the clothes. It came in a large box with materials, patterns and accessories.
Maxie, 11.5 in. by Hasbro 1987, was the first in a series of teen age fashion dolls with bendable knees, painted faces and long hair. The idea of creating outfits for them was promoted by a 1989 boxed set of dolls plus 12 basic clothing pieces. Hasbro claimed that these items could be combined to make 101 “Fashion Looks”!
