    I found an interesting looking, but pretty bedraggled looking, skipper on my favorite secondhand barbiewebshop. thanks to your great website I managed to determine her as a California skipper and purchased her with almost all of her accessories, yay! After a thorough cleanup ( paint and penstripes on her body, hair relatively good) I now have a beautiful new doll.

    If you want pictures of her with hr thingies, just give a yell.

    Then later I bought me a doll whom i thought might be a funtime skipper, she wasn't though. Clearly a tanned skipper ( so much for photographps..) marked Mattel, Inc. 1967 Philippines.

    so I went to your website and think she's a beachfun skipper and in mint condition too, without her OSS though. But what i found remarkable ( being relatively new at gathering those dolls) is that her head is massive and smaller than the usual skipper.
    Her body is beautiful too, most of these modern skippers have a very visible line on the legs, this line is nearly invisible on this one. Like on the older bendleg skippers.
    Now I do wonder about her origins, would you have a look at her?

    Dear Jane, yes, Sandy is marked like that. This reminds me to add the markings to my webpage :-) Thanks so much for your feedback! I will be adding a webpage on Francie dolls in the future.
    Thanks to everybody who commented below for your lovely feedback and for liking my page! I hope to be able to add some more updates soon.

    Just found your site and bookmarked it for the future! I got here because I recently purchased a Skipper clone that is marked "Unique 1965" on the back of the neck. Have you ever heard of this doll. She looks just like the Elite Sandy doll.

    Also do you have information on other type Barbie dolls?

    This Website is amazing. I love it. I think you should write a book! The information you give about skipper is so fantastic and goes much deeper than the book you are giving as a reference.

    This is great! Very well done.
    Love the photos and info. I don't agree Skipper was a teenager. My opinion: about 9 or 10. Skipper arrived in my life 1964; I was 9. I dressed the same way. Hats, anklets, peddle pushers, full skirted dresses, all apropos for that era.

    Hi. I enjoyed seeing your lovely Skippers. She was my first fashion doll, my sister got Barbie. Mom said Skipper looked like me. I wish you could have something on her friends, Skooter and Ricky, I have only found Skooter with very played with condition. Thanks for sharing your dolls with us.
