Yesterday you all met the three dolls from the lot that still had their original bodies. The remaining three dolls were a mishmash of heads and bodies. And you know me and how I like having the correct heads on the correct bodies. So I took apart all the dolls that were on the wrong bodies, put the correct ones together, and plan on putting the solo parts away until I get the correct pieces I need to complete each doll. Not sure when that will be though. I have quite a pile of heads and bodies and none that match.
Today's post is going to be all about the bodies that came from the lot. It's actually going to be a shorter post since I'm only talking about two bodies. I did get three bodies in the lot, but one of them has found a new head, so I'm saving talking about that body when that doll gets her introduction (which will be after this current lot has been shared).
After that we have our second (and final) Barbie body. This one is a bit different from our last body. First off
But her torso color isn't the only thing she has in common with the number four ponytail dolls. The majority of her limbs are made from the same material as the number four doll. Both legs and her right hand are made from the tanner more malleable plastic. Her left hand however while still a darker tan, is made from the harder less flexible plastic. Both hands retail a lot of their original deep red nail polish that the number fours have. I have had someone mention that she might be a doll made from parts at home by a child. I think she has too many things that support she's a transitional doll to believe that theory. I think she's a doll that was made after they stopped doing the solid torso, but before they ran out of all the parts. I'm not sure what type of head she originally came with. It's a shame that it didn't survive in the lot. I think that I'm going to try and get a number four head for her. Other than the hollow torso, it's practically a number four body.
Condition wise, the body is in pretty good shape. The torso does have it's fair amount of play wear, including a wear line that goes through the Barbie logo on the back. The arms are in good shape, she has all her fingers and most of her fingernail polish. Her legs are in good shape for the most part. She does have a few bits of play wear here and there, the worst being a small nip at the front of her left ankle. It's still very small and not that noticeable. Overall it's a really nice body and I can't wait to get a head for it. She'll be a really nice (and unusual) addition to the collection!
So that was the bodies, coming up next, the heads! (All three of them!)
