Thrift Store Cutie!

Hey Gang,

I was out paying a bill and stopped by an area thrift store.  I almost missed
this doll hiding in the bottom of the bang of items.

She is dressed for Christmas and has red hair.  I can't past up a redhead!
She has a very cute face!  One that I don't remember seeing before.

I thought she might not be Mattel but her head is stamped Mattel 2003.
I thought she might be the head sculpt of my Fern...

but she isn't.
She came in a pack that contained all the above for less that a dollar. I
think I got a bargin!

OK, Thanks For Looking!

Cute find! She looks like she has the cutest heat damage ever... left in a hot car, turned into extra cute kid... not advisable for real kids 0_0

Yup, she's a cutie, and less than a dollar, make you holla! (that's my motto) I have one that's similar and I'm already planning a Honey Boo Boo project with her :)

Look at those cute chubby cheeks...she is a real cutie!

That little red head's nose and mouth are shaped as though she has sinus issues. Like if she were to talk, she would be saying, "I hab a code in mah node." She's a cutie.

What is that gold thing in the last photo next to the purple stove(?)?

She's very cute! I think these dolls came in giftset with those "activity" Barbies, such as teachers and so on.

Bargain indeed! She's a cutie!

She is a cutie, makes you want to give her a hug. And her dress is amazingly detailed for such a small size. You did well for under a dollar.

Thanks for your comments Heather,Eve*Sparkle, The grandmommy, Muff,V., Forestminuet and Carrickters!

Heather, I don't think she is damaged. I think that is the look that they were going for. I have been trying to find her on line but I don't see a doll that looks like her. I am now thinking she is not a kelly but some othe mattle doll that they used a Kelly body for.

Eve*Sparkle and Forestminuet, I do love a bargain and it did make me holla! I will keep they motto in mind. I can see a little Honey Boo Boo in her.

The grandmommy, V., and Carrickters, You need as many cuties in your life as possible.

Muff, I do think V. is right about her face. Mattel was doing dolls like that for a while. I don't know what that thing is but I'll let you know when I find out.

She's a real cutie, your new redhead. (I have a fondness for redhaired dolls, too. Shrug. So bright and pritty ;-D)
