Trying again to find my Skate doll.... PHOTOS on page 2
« on: Friday 18 June 2010, 04:46 pm »
In around 1990, I got a doll who was around the same size as Skipper. She was called 'Skatie' and had on very early 90s neon clothes - bermuda shorts (in a bright greeny-yellow with patterns) and a white t-shirt with a pattern that matched the shorts sewn on. I think she came with a skateboard (it would make sense!)
She had very long blonde crimped hair and was very pretty!

I would love more info on her if anyone recognizes her?

Was it like this doll by Kid Kore? (Apparently it's from 1991, though...) Maybe there were blonde versions...?

Nope, that's not her (those dolls are pretty cool though!)

My doll was definitely called 'Skatie' and she came alone!

I wish I still had her!

I hope you find your doll Laura, but I'm glad I saw this thread before I made one about my skating doll lol, because I'm pretty sure I had that Kid Kore doll. I'd been searching for a Barbie with skates and hadn't found anything I remembered, but I think that one is her! Thanks zuse!

The orange-colour was done by me!

I hope someone remembers her!  ??? ??? ??? ??? :'(

Trying again to find my Skate doll....

In around 1990 I got a doll from Woolworths (UK). She was a bit smaller and podgier than Skipper and on the front of the box, it said 'SKatie'

She was dressed in skateboard clothes- green bermuda shorts and a white t-shirt with some of the same material from the shorts stitched onto it. She also had white trainers/sneakers.

She was a beautiful doll with really long 'crimped'/crinkly blonde hair and thick curly bangs/fringe.

She had blue eyes and dimples in her cheeks.

This doll was adorable and quite frankly I was an absolute fool to part with her, as I loved her for years and played with her all the time.

I'm absolutely desperate to find her again but I've searched everywhere and haven't come up with anything.

I don't know who made her.

I would be so grateful for ANY info about her.

Was she not Kid Kore?

Hmm... sorry, I swear this wasn't attached to the other message earlier. ;) I saw a Kid Kore doll earlier today, though, that was like this but blonde, and she had a bicycle on her shirt, so I guess that they made more than one of these "athletic" dolls...

Sorry, I forgot to reply to say that I merged these two topics as they were both posted by Lauralovelylocks about the same doll.

Her hair isn't crimped, though. http://www.club-sindy.com/skateboard_box.htm

Well, I guess that she doesn't match your description at all, does she? -hehe-

She looked quite like this doll:

Who is Gloria by Tong.

My doll's face, eyes and hair were very similar, although my doll was smiling more and had dimples in her cheeks.

Again, my Skatie doll was shorter than Skipper, with larger (chubbier!) body, legs and arms and bigger hands and feet than Skipper.
