Anita Perez

5

After lurking around some other doll collecting groups, I discovered the Anita Perez doll.  I thought she was just beautiful!  She is also the older sister of Juanita Perez. 
This is how I received my doll from Mexico.  As you can see, the vinyl of her face has faded.  And her dress sure wasn't winning any beauty pagents.  I cleaned her up, did the best I could with her wooly hair, and redressed her in an outfit I bought from Ms. Dee on eBay.  Just look at her now:
Que linda Senorita!

This doll was made in the 1960's.  The Juanita Perez company later changed the face mold in the 70's, to give her a softer, more teenage-like apperance.  I, however, prefer this face mold.
