MY 70’S DOLL PART 3

I’ve been lazy, the net is soooo slow!  I don’t know up to how many parts these 70’s doll will take me.  Lately the days are gloomy, hard to take pictures, plus my hands are not as steady as they used to.  I want to make my details short and just post everything.  But, on second thought, for my own reference, I’d like to put all info (if I can) so as not to forget.  I’m not getting any younger, so my memory in time will fail me to recall.  

UNIDENTIFIED CLONE DOLL (PETRA VON PLASTY?)

I love clone dolls made from the 70’s.  I don’t care if the materials they used are cheap.  I found these at Desibel in Cubao a few years ago.  The side glance is my deciding point, plus the hairstyle!  I thought she looked like Sindy, then I remember a doll named Petra. They looked more like Petra Von Plasty, I’m not sure, she could be Tressy, or just another craft doll. While most of the dolls I googled are side glancing towards the left, these are glancing to their right side.  No year was stamped at the back, I can tell they are from the 70’s.  

PURSE DOLLS made in Hong Kong

These are my sisters’ dolls, but they have outgrown them, so they were handed down to me.  There was a period during the 70’s that a mini doll inside a plastic purse or bag became a hit.  Liddle Kiddles dolls are the famous one.  These Hong Kong dolls has the same body structure as the Kiddles.  I remember they’re in a pink plastic purse with keychain.  They wear a white and blue striped uniform with a nurse cap, so I suppose they are nurses.  I lost their outfit.

MY 70s DOLLS PART 2

Some of my 70s dolls are not the collectible type, so most of them are unbranded and cheaply made, but I love them anyway. 

HAWAIIAN MAIDEN BY LANAKILA CRAFTS (Made in Honolulu Hawaii)

I found this doll in a thrift store and in good condition.  She’s all hollow plastic with only the head made of rubber which I can surmise to be same material as those being used during the 70’s.  She has a twist n turn waist, jointed legs and arms, the neck has the ball knob type to connect/plug the head.  I think she’s a souvenir doll.

VINYL DOLL HOLDING FLOWERS (SEKIGUCHI CLONE?)

I’m not sure if these are from the 70’s but surely resembles those dolls made by Sekiguchi during the 70’s.  My sister gave these to me and I could not remember the date.  Maybe late 70’s because during the time, I remember a lot of dolls being sold in set of 3s.  Although they seem to be clones, they are still made in Japan.  All rubber with fully rooted head.
