There was a white version (which discoloured yellow over time), and a pale pink version. Both versions were sold in the US andelsewhere around the world.

The white version came in a closed box.

The pink version came in an open front box.

  • Grandfather Clock
  • Bed

Little girls will love to make Bonnie Blue Eyes climb the ladder and ride in the elevator....pull the star on top and up it comes!
Wear a Charmkin in the heart of the tiara that surrounds the base of the balloon.
