Better known as kids up for adoption in the 80's, This craze grew so huge that even I as a new girl in a new country, I had to have one or I was going to die. I couldn't even speak english so go figure.
They were and still are a part of a universal language. Googie Dianna was my very first one. Two big red plaits and a number 3# head mould and green eyes and one dimple. Very similar to the one to your right but I'm still searching for the exact one.
My parents bought her when I was very ill in hopital for Christmas 1985 to cheer me up. She did, as I also had green eyes and a dimple in the same spot. And finally felt like the other kids in my class having one of my own.
*THE CPK DOLL TO THE RIGHT IS SHE IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE ONE I HAD AS A LITTLE GIRL. SHE IS A KT KID FROM 1985. THE 3# ARE ALWAYS MY FAVOURITE FOLLOWED BY THE KT #1. I FIND IT HARD TO PART WITH THEM.
MY GIRL WAS A GIRL FROM CHINA WHICH HAVE THICKER FEET AND OVER STUFFED ALLOT OF THE TIME. BUT NICELY PAINTED EYES OK I THINK. I REMEMBER BRIGHT GREEN EYES.
THE KT'S HAVE DULL EYES MORE SIMILAR TO THE TRI-ANG PEDIGREES BUT NONE ARE AS DULL AND YET PRETTY AS THE TRI-ANGS.
THEY BROUGHT SO MUCH JOY TO EVERY CHILD WHO POSSESSED ONE. INCLUDING MYSELF AND TO ALL MY GIRLFRIENDS WHO TODAY LAUGH AT MY SILLY HOBBY AND YET LOVE LOOKING AT THE LITTLE BUGGERS :)
