Meet dolly Surprise

     Dolly Surprise 1988 by Playskool. Made in China.  Found in a thrift store for $1.95 .

 AND what she looked like new.

Only mine has TWO growing hair spots so that she has pig tails...
I think they changed them. I saw AA and blondes and brunettes.

Well since I need dolls for models (going to sell off some and stick to American Girl and really pretty others) I purchased these two from Evil bay.
One is Samantha and the other is Just Like You #10.  But they need lots of tender loving care. Samantha's hair has been cut and what is left is brittle.  JLY is not in too bad of condition, but both had leg problems. I took them both apart (Samantha had one leg off) and found that they had both been through repairs before.  Well they got it again. I didn't buy a thing but used what I had here, and all I can say is that in the years to come when one of these dolls is torn apart, they are going to wonder WHAT IN THE WORLD IS A GINGER ALE PLASTIC BOTTLE CAP DOING IN THIS DOLL?...he he he...
this is before.  Stay tuned for the after shots. 
Both can now stand on their own. They have some freshening done to their face paint and Samantha is minus her wig.  All in due time.
 Samantha has on ONE of her new wigs

 Sure look different now don't they?

Got tired of changing her wigs and finally did some hair weaves and now she has a beautiful head of hair that is not going to come off very easily.
