This appears to be a knock off Barbie (who came to life in 1959 at the end of the decade)
This is a doll of a character from the popular children’s show, Howdy Doody, Princess Summerfall Winterspring
Wouldn’t YOU like to have a Shirley Temple Doll?
Paper dolls, too!
And of course, who can forget Barbie? Though she really only appeared at the end of the 1950’s. Just imagined if she started in 55, the clothes would have remained wonderful.
Did you have a favorite doll or toy as a child?
