VINTAGE 2ND EDITION BLONDE BARBIE FRANCIE DOLL TNT BENDABLE LEGS LAND HO OUTFIT WITH SHOES.
Vintage Francie dolls were introduced in 1966. Francie was Barbie's mod cousin and was the first doll with real eyelashes. She had a slimmer "teenage" figure.
Francie Fairchild outfits were mod and hip. Mini skirts with patterned hose, midi skirts, boots and very mod glasses.
I am the original owner of this marked HIGH COLOR Mattel 2 second edition Francie Doll that I received on my 7th birthday. I've had her on display off and on through the years and she has never been touched as far as restoration goes. She is in beautiful condition.
The pictures do not do her hair justice as it is a beautiful ash blonde that looks different in certain light. With the flash it almost looks dark blond. Her hair is silky and soft to the touch, although she could use a bit of a curl to get her classic flip back up to speed. She does have a missing hair plug as shown in the picture, but certainly doesn't distract.
No green ear, bite marks or anything else. Earrings have never been put in here ears. I saw what they did to her cousin Barbie.
She does have two marks on the back of her legs. It looks like it may be the wire, but nothing is poking through. She also holes on the bottoms of her feet as shown, which was the standard for Francie.
Francie has all of her beautiful eyelashes, I think. There is one that looks a tad less thick than the others. Again, it certainly doesn't distract and she displays beautifully!
She twists and turns like she hasn't missed a beat on the dance floor, and both legs bend nicely.
Francie comes dressed in her Land Ho outfit ready to take the world by land or by sea. I remember when my Aunt bought the dress that same year for Christmas. She said that is was last years fashions, but she got it on sale. I'm sure Aunt Loie would love to know that this outfit is from the first year that Francie came out and is now a collectors item, especially when it is complete like this one.
No rips, holes, tears or stains. The ring is still on the dress and the snaps are tight. Francie still has the little button on the top of her hat.
Francie will also come with a stand. Not an original one, but a stand just the same.
Buyer to pay postage. Thank-you for taking a look and be sure and check out my other auctions for some really cool stuff.
