HELP! Barbie-like Mattel doll from the 90s?
« on: Saturday 05 January 2013, 07:28 am »
This is probably a lost cause, but I am trying to identify a doll. I know she was like a Barbie doll, made by Mattel in the earlyish 90s, NOT one of Barbie's friends or family members - in fact I don't think she had anything to do with Barbie, and came with a blue and yellow one piece with cutout swimsuit/leotard that had little pink bows. Her face was different than Barbie's, however, she was blonde-haired and blue eyed. Anyone? I have been searching for hours and found nothing. I bought her at a discount/close-out store in the early-mid 90s.

She didn't have a name, but she was made by Mattel so I consider her a Barbie "acquaintance."  There were three dolls, Fashion Friend Party Teen and Fashion Friend Swimsuit Teen (the one you're asking about), both of whom were Barbie-sized, and Pretty Teen, who was Skipper-sized.  These dolls were only sold at Kmart in 1991 in the US.  There were a number of extra outfits sold for Party Teen.  This is a link on ebay to Swimsuit Teen:

I've got Pretty Teen for sale myself:
