I love dolls made from the 70’s. Although I wasn’t able to save most of mine, I can still remember them, and if I have enough time, maybe I’ll try to make a sketch of each one.
THE HULA DOLL
Mine was made in Japan, this type of doll was a popular dashboard decoration during the mid-70’s and some series have closed eyes, long hair, all rubber without articulation except for the neck.
THE KISS ME DOLL (HULA/LOVE ME DOLL?)
I can’t categorize her as a Hula Doll because she was wearing a red Indian outfit (pants & sleeveless tops) when my father gave this to me. She used to have a long curly and wispy hair. But when I was kid, I love experimenting on my doll’s hair and during that time, apple cut was the current hair trend, so I chopped off her foot long hair!
