May she have been one of these? There were apparently several in the "Sports Kids" line.

So she's definitely not 'Awesome Skateboarding Stacie' (Mattel)? Cos she has those same white shoes it would appear...Stacie does sound like 'Skatie', a bit. Lol. Probably released later than when you got your doll though.

All the skateboarding, rollerblading, rollerskating dolls I've come across all have long blonde crimped hair, lol.

This doll is called 'Skatey' and has blonde hair and roller skates...my, she has big feet though. You probably would have mentioned those, lol. This one is remote control too.

Nope - still not her!

Wow, this doll is turning into a mystery!

I'm going to look through some old photos later to see if I have any of the mysterious Skatie.

I wish I hadn't given her to a charity shop a few years ago!  :(

I found photos of Sssssssssssskatie!!!!



And here she is next to Sindy as a size comparison:


This is not her original dress (I think it's a Barbie one) she came wearing a white t-shirt with patterns stitched one, Bermuda shorts and white trainers.

There are two other 80s dolls that look really similar to your Skatie. Look at how the arms and hands are positioned, not to mention the crimped blonde hair:

Not sure how tall these 2 dolls are....may be bigger than yours. But if they're made by the same companies, that might help us out.

With your photo, does Skatie have a green bow or ribbon in her hair? Her hair looks too good to be a generic brand. I was thinking she might be some untraceable generic $1 store doll, but if her hair was very good quality I suppose that would suggest she may have been Hasbro, Mattel or another big brand name perhaps?

Did she have freckles?

Update: I have just discovered that the 'Skatey Doll' I suggested in an earlier post is a knock-off of 'Radical Rollin' Rachel', a doll by Hasbro, circa 2003. Maybe yours is a generic brand after all....I'm still looking! :)

It is super frustrating! I search for this doll at least once every day in my free time and still cannot come up with anything new. I am thinking we will just have to sit back and wait for the answer to appear on its own. Sometimes my best finds have been stumbled upon by accident, while looking for something else, and that's always pretty cool!

One of the Candee dolls by Totsy (circa 1995ish?)

Nope.

She's kind of similar though.

I got Skatie/Skaty in around 1991.

Skyhorse - nope she didn't have freckles - she had dimples though :-)

And I put that ribbon in her hair, she didn't come wearing it.
