Quints :: Dolls

"So many different kinds of Quints to collect and love!"

Quints were produced by Tyco in the early 90's. They were a series of tiny quints dolls with loads of accessoires, fashions and playsets to collect. There were also sets of teenage doll triplets to babysit the quints, who had fashions and playsets of their own.

They were sold in the US, UK and other parts of Europe under varying names:

  • UK & US: Quints
  • Italy: Bidibodi
