This probably isn't it, but I went on a bit of a search for anything similar, and I found this:

Nope, that's not her.

Sssssskatie/Ssssssskaty was more of a skateboard doll. She has on 'board' shorts, white trainers (sneakers) ETC.

No   :(

I actually had a dream about her last night! I want her back!

She was just called SSSSSSSSSSSSkaty or SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSkatie, bought in Woolworths, UK in around 1990. Dressed in skateboarding clothes, with long, crimped blonde hair and dimpled cheeks.

She is shorter than Skipper but chubbier. Her hands and feet are much bigger than Skipper's and she had a bit of a tummy on her!

It's a long shot, but is she Baby Skates?

Not Baby Skates; her doll was smaller than Barbie. ;)

I searched for hours online last night and came up with nothing!

I sooooo regret parting with this doll. What a mystery it's turning out to be!

I can't believe that we haven't managed to ID her with a photo, description and a name!!!!!

I haven't given up hope, one day I'll find her....... ::)

I still think she's a Katie doll by Kid Kore.



I had one growing up, and was able to recognize a another one from just her hair while standing twenty feet away. Even from the blurred photos, this still looks like your doll!

They came in at least 24 different outfits. I've yet to find one in the same outfit as the one I had growing up OR the one I found at the flea market.

Her body and arms are made of a hard plastic, her head is vinyl, and her legs are a rubbery plastic and bend.

Look at the shoes on this one:



And here's a "Katie" with a different face:



Alternatively, could she be one of these? They seem a bit small, though.



EDIT: OH! Unless she's the same type of knock-off dolls that I got in a set when I was very small... I always called them "Barbies", but they weren't. Mine all came in Halloween costumes and were packaged with alternate outfits, including a record player. I only have two of the six left, but I would have gotten them around 1994, and I know they made them for quite a while afterwards as I saw them in Ben Franklin for years after getting them. They are quite chubby and the blondes came with crimped hair!

Nope - she looked nothing like either of them!

Her name was SSSSSSSSSskatie or SSSSSSSSSSSSSSkaty. (with a SSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!)

This may have already been suggested, not sure where we are up to with this one as I haven't backtracked for awhile, but could she have been a Cititoy-brand doll like these, or similar:

or...

I'm sooo delighted that you found out the brand! Thank you again!

Right, so my one had long crimped blonde hair, neon bermuda shorts, a white t-shirt with some of the fabric from the shorts stitched on, and white trainers/sneakers.

Lets find her!!!!

Wow, haha, that's cool :) Progress! It's funny cos I randomly look up Cititoy dolls now and then, and when I saw some of them on eBay last night, I immediately thought 'hmm...let me see that blurry photo of the supposed sssssskatie doll again...' and yeah, it looked similar, especially the bent arm and the fringe. Of course, credit goes to Zuse who actually had the last picture of the Cititoy 'L.A. Looks' dolls up in another post (the same dolls in that photo can also be found on eBay still, too, even though Zuse wrote the post like a year a go I think). In other searches, it seems Cititoy used this doll mold a fair bit, under different names, so it might still be tricky to locate the actual ssssssKatie...

Just to clarify, the outfit isn't anything like this is it:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/1990-Cherie-All-Vinyl-Poseable-Doll-8-New-in-Box-by-Cititoy-/151002313863?pt=US_Dolls_Bears_Toys&hash=item2328707487

..as I'm trying to find out if Cititoy ever swapped or interchanged outfits for their doll lines at different times.

Ok, I am doing cartwheels right now. Check this doll out, not the right clothes yet, but you'll get my drift:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VINTAGE-CITI-TOYS-DOLL-1988-/330871517036?nma=true&si=psjW7OEehDO8mz%252FHjHqyfLdsIj4%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

We have a year! A brand! Blonde! Crimped hair! Neon clothes that are similar top and bottom! Skatie must be part of THIS particular line of dolls (similar to the 2nd doll in the pink neon dress in my previous post, but with curly hair instead). You should probably put a bid on this crimped-hair doll on eBay or contact the seller, RIGHT NOW. Haha.

Is it too early for all of us here at GOTD to do a Harlem Shake right now? Cos I'm feelin' it!
