Her nickname Twiggy, which was derived from Twigs, referred to her eyelashes not her thin figure. Girls around the world wanted to have lashes like the mod supermodel. As seen in this ad for fake lashes! #styleicon #modcloth

    I still have mine, too along with the box that she came in as well as the perm solution and rollers. She has her original dress and my mother made lots of clothes for her. Wonderful memories!

    I wanted to perm her hair, but my mother wouldn't let me! :)

    I still have mine - she is blonde. Didn't we use sugar water for the perm?

    My doll came with a bottle of solution, accessories, etc. and the bottle has never been opened!
