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.

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.
