One of my more recent Steffie additions, this is Dolls of the World Irish Barbie from 1983. As a Tonner Doll collector, I did a double-take when I deboxed this lovely girl, as she reminds me a lot of Tyler Wentworth.

I received her never-removed-from-box, but those pink window boxes sometimes leak. It gives me the perfect opportunity to remove the doll from the box for a nice hair spa day--washing, rinsing and conditioning.

She looks new and fresh, though her hair has been restyled. See a few more shots of her on Flickr.
