Not much hair…

Posted by helen on October 6, 2011

after I sold my “voyage in vintage” Barbie, I have wanted to buy a lemon blond ponytail doll to replace her.   after a year of waiting, I finally got the “Teenage Fashion Model 1959” at TRU.

once she is in my hand,  I noticed she has  a very thin ponytail. I took a close  look–sadly,  this doll does not have a full head of hair,  the factor only  rooted hair along the hairline–just enough to make a ponytail–the girl  is bald, absolutely no hair on the top of her head.

its hard to understand why Mattel does things like this,  if a doll is designed to play, then, we want to change her clothes, change her hairstyles…  many older dolls came with combs–so  hair restyling was encouraged.  oh, how much I  hate the bald dolls! this is not the first bald doll… I remember how upset I was with my  Bowling champ, princess of  Holland, Oktoberfest… they  are all bald  girls need to join 1-800- hair club!!


I made this “Voyage in Vintage” dress for her..

    I know my 1996 Repro Bridal Barbie has nicely rooted hair because I took her ponytail out and she has beautiful long red hair! I don’t know how to show a photo of her or I would!

    Also I have Bowling Champ Barbie and I didn’t know she was bald! So glad I didn’t take her hair down. Guess I better always check first!
