2 Fun Dolls


Recently at thrift stores, I've bought 2 fun dolls from the 80's.  I plan on fixing them up a little and making them some clothes, because they are really pretty dolls.
Before any "treatment"

On the left, is a Hasbro My Beautiful Doll Maribeth.  She has crimped, blonde hair, brown eyes, and the cutest freckles you've ever seen (don't let Francie hear me say that!).  On the right is a Tomy Kimberly doll, which is starting to get her deserved recognition in the collecting world.

Both dolls are really well made, and have painted on faces and rooted hair.  They have "strung" type bodies, with black rubbery-elasticy stuff holding their limbs on. 

Maribeth has some wild hair and some ugly pink ink on her face, and Kimberly isn't much better.  I'm going to start working on them this week, and I hope to share their new looks by this weekend!


  1. Can't wait for the big reveal photo shoot!

  2. I just found Maribeth for $5. I would love to see your makeover results on these two dolls.
