Takara Dolls Part 1

Hello world!

Well at last I am a bit motivated to resume my journey (LOL!) or maybe I just needed a lift and that’s another story and another blog.

I took out all of my Jenny and Licca dolls and gave them a nice bath for the second time.  Their first was when I got them, but that was maybe 3 or 4 years ago.  I’m glad they didn’t have melting issues like some other dolls.

These are all that’s left, I already sold some.  I’d often contemplate on selling them all, but I keep changing my mind each time.  I remember how I dreamed of having even just one, because they’re expensive and most are only available in Japan.  I didn’t know I could find them in thrift stores.

Only a few of them had their original dress on when I found them, I was lucky enough to have hauled a bunch of Licca Chan’s dress, some of which are still new!  As for Jenny, I can use Barbie’s outfit.

Among these dolls, one favorite of mine is this one.  She and the dress she’s wearing is in very good condition, like she just lost her box in transit.

I’m still searching for her identity, head mark K119, same mold used in Excelina Barbie, she is made in China.  I’m not sure if she’s a Jenny, there are too many versions of Takara dolls and I’m not familiar with them.  Most are made in Japan where they originated, and some are from China.

I couldn’t remember what shoes she’s wearing, the necklace above is not the right one, I later found it (below) she was wearing these when I bought her.

She’s not wearing her real clothes, I can’t remember what she’s wearing when I found her, so I just used my spare clothes.  From what I’ve read, she’s a Tomboy!  So that’s probably the reason why she’s often dressed in blue outfit.

MAKI CHAN – TAKARA 1987 MADE IN CHINA

Maki was wearing only her panty when I found her, so I dressed her up with a Takara baby outfit, she’s been tagged as the spoiled one among the Licca Chan Family.

Miku is wearing a yellow jumpsuit with an itsy bitsy tiny diaper to boot!  She’s one of the Triplets sister of Licca Chan and was born in 1987.  The other 2 are Kaku and Gen. 

I am not familiar with Licca Chan Doll’s family history, what I wrote here are for my own personal reference on the dolls I have in my collection.  I was trying to check out the Japanese website about her, but my net wouldn’t cooperate, dang!

Here are a few links that has helped me about their identity, thank you to the authors:
