Twist 'N Turn Skipper doll, stock #1105

by Kathie

This is the second issue TNT Skipper doll available from 1970-1971. She came as either a blonde (box marked gold blonde) or a brunette (box marked java brown).

She has sausage curls tied with orange vinyl ribbons. Her eyes are blue, side-glancing and she has rooted lashes, light brown brows, and coral lips.. She has a TNT waist and bendable legs. She has a pink skin tone which is subject to fading. Skipper wore a two-piece orange vinyl swimsuit with an orange message cover-up with yellow polka dots and vinyl trim. Her accessories included a clear X stand, fashion booklet, white comb and brush, black eyelash comb, and an orange and silver foil wrist tag. Skipper's body markings are: c. 1967 Mattel Inc./US Pat'd US Pats. Pend/Made in Taiwan. The box has graphic representations of Skipper in Super Slacks, Lots of Lace, and Daisy Crazy. I think she is one of the prettiest Skipper dolls ever issued.
