Thought it would be fun to do a “Throw Back Thursday” entry today. A couple of years ago, I stumbled upon a Cynthia and her wardrobe box. Cynthia was made in 1971 and featured little records that could be inserted to allow her to “speak”. My girl has several records, but I don’t have a battery handy so I can’t test out her mechanism. She’s just under twenty inches and is a fabulous clothes horse. Check out her wardrobe!
Cynthia in a blue, flocked velveteen coat with pink hat and matching boots. I think that there was originally a purse that came with this set. I don’t have it. : (
This might be an off-brand, but it fits Cynthia well. After doing a little research, I believe the purse actually belongs to another outfit.
The yellow plastic handbag from the previous outfit actually goes with this ensemble. Records accompanied these separately purchased sets also. I wonder what they say?
I like the little detail here. Note the pocket on her mini dress that is hidden by the vest.
Pure ’70’s. Long skirted dress with a ruffle at the hem. I had a dress like this, back in the day.
I apologize for the poor photos here, but I hope you can appreciate this outfit. Check this out:
Her blouse features a conveniently placed slit so that her record can be changed without undressing her. And look at the zipper in her pants! I’m such a dork. I love things like this.
Cynthia’s original outfit.
A battery goes in the back, the records slip into her side.
Her groovy storage box.
Every blonde needs a brunette best friend. Quick Curl Casey makes a great bff for Cynthia. Like all besties, they can share clothes and high heeled shoes. Casey doesn’t play records, though.
Judging from her condition, Cynthia was a carefully played with doll, lovingly preserved by some child (or perhaps a mother) years ago. I hope that you enjoyed taking a peak. Do you have any dolls that you’ve treasured from your childhood?
