I am not sure who Joyce Miller is, so if someone should know please enlighten me. I did a few internet searches but didn’t find what I was looking for. Anyway, here are some Joyce Miller Dolls from 1972. Grandpa and Grandma.
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.
I am not familiar with the Hugabees. They are a rag doll type toy from 1976.
At first glance I thought it was an animated doll, but after reading the description, you just move their shoulders back and forth and try to make their hair swing… yippee?!?
The dolls come with built in mechanics to make their hair longer or shorter.
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.
There is also a Talking Tender Love and a Rosie Tender Love pictured as well.
Did you have any of these while growing up? Tell us about them.
This is also an item on my wife’s want list. Baby Beans was a very popular doll from the 70s.
Many of our younger 70s children will remember these.
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!
I was just curious if there was some kind of history with this Gnome family.
This set looks too detailed to be just a randomly designed toy concept. But I couldn’t find any information on the Eugene family. I am guessing this was from a storybook but not sure.
