Suntan Tuesday Taylor from 1977

It looks like Ideal was trying to capture some of the Barbie market with this doll Suntan Tuesday Taylor.

This ad features Tuesday Taylor’s Rustic Lake House, Volkswagen Camper, Summer Vacation House and the Winter Home. Just like Barbie she seems to own a lot of real estate. Yet she chooses a Volkswagen for her mode of transportation instead of a pink Porsche. Rich, tan but yet economical.

 

Sweet Sounds Baby Tender Love from 1974

I have posted a different version of this doll in the past. This one is Sweet Sounds Baby Tender Love. When you feed her, her eyes will tear up and when you pat her she begins to cry.

I am never sure, when it comes to dolls, which ones were popular or not. There are so many generic dolls in the catalogs, it makes it confusing. So I try to grab something and run with it to see if it means something to somebody. Sometimes its golden and other times deadly silent. Let’s be honest, if one post means anything to just one person, for me that is golden.

If you have a story about these dolls or would like to see post about a certain doll just let me know!
