Skipper 6 – Teen Skipper

9 Sep

Just time for a quick one tonight. I got this doll second-hand through the post today and I just think she’s gorgeous – I love the way that she is looking slightly upwards, suggesting she is slightly shorter than whoever she is talking to. This face sculpt has really grown on me since I bought a Cloud Queen Rayla. Apparently, my new girl was released in 1997 and was the first Teen Skipper to use this particularly grown-up body type (which, I have just found, was also used on the Generation Girls – no wonder I couldn’t make normal Barbie shoes fit them!). More of these to follow …

    WOW! Love her long hair-teen skipper looks like a young Barbie. Skipper has sure changed over the years-I have to admit I prefer the vintage Skipper to the newer ones.

      Yes, she does look like a young Barbie – it was a great face sculpt choice for this doll, although not very traditionally Skipperish given how mature she looks! I am starting to like some of the original Skippers, but Ive approached it all from the other direction really as I liked the modern ones first … Thanks for commenting 🙂
