8-10" - Doll Sizes for Sewing Clothes & Patterns
The 9" Only Hearts Club is my kids favorite doll line. See ohc4me.com. Over the years, we've ended up with various stray dolls when we purchase a lot of doll accessories. Often we are after the dolls stuff only. Making and selling clothes for the OHC and other dolls has become a fun way to pay for the OHC doll obsession. The non-OHC dolls aren't played with, and are often resold when I get too many in the box or get tired of making clothes for that body. Pictures are not mine, unless indicated.
9" - 9.5" Sunshine Family, Happy Family, Happy Fun Family, Sunshine Fun Family - mattel made hippies! Star Spangled dolls, Mork, Welcome Back Kotter and possibly others shared the same body mold. There's a toddler girl that isn't shown. The red head cousins were never made.
9" vintage Skipper. Her friends Skooter, Tiff, Fluff, Ginger and the boy Rikki shared the same basic body from 1964-1979. Skipper got taller & grew breasts w/ each mold change. 1979 - "Super Teen Skipper" 1988 - "Teen Fun Skipper" age 13-15 1997-2003 "Teen Skipper" age 16ish 2009 - shorter w/ body mold same as high school musical body 2012 - abt 14 years old?
STAR TEAM STACIE - dolls circa 2005? 9 variations - blond, AA, brunette and possibly a red head. Boxes all seem to have had "Star Team Stacie" on them no matter what the doll inside looked like. Dolls maybe named Stacie (blond), Janet/Alexa (African-American), Whitney/Lila/Miranda (red head), Ranee (seen name, but no clue what this friend of Stacie looks like). Those are the names of "Stacie's friend".
~9.5"-10" dolls - body comparison: What's Her Face, Wee 3 Friends, Star Team Stacie - torsos are all the same. Legs and arms were changed slightly. These 3 doll lines are identical in height to vintage 9" Skipper at the waist and shoulder; their heads & feet are bigger. Skipper is skinnier.
