"Sun Gold" Malibu Skipper 1983

"Sun Gold" Malibu Skipper 1983
Malibu Skipper from 1983 wearing "Sleep Tight" by Mauro. I don't have many dolls that were made after the early 1970s, but I think this little Skipper has the sweetest expression. Plus she has a pretty tan that dolls can only get on the sunny beaches of Malibu. Isn't her little bear adorable?

I thought you might Lina. I just love her and especially in this fashion. If you do look for one, you might not want to get her NRFB like I did. When I took her out of the box I discovered that her rubber band had melted into her hair and kind of messed it up at the ends.

Did you braid her hair or did she come like that? She looks different from other Malibu Skippers i've seen. She has the sweetest face. I think I need to look for one...;-)

She comes like that. I think she looks different too and is much easier to photograph as the others I have have such blue eyes they would really freak you out even more than Tutti does. :D

She is actually called "Sun Gold" Malibu Skipper and is from 1983. Here are a couple of examples: NRFB: www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-1983-Mattel-Sun-Gold-Malibu-Skipper-Doll-1069-NRFB-Barbie-Mint-Doll-/201073549557?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2ed0eae0f5

This is the prettiest Malibu Skipper I've ever seen! Your dolls are always wonderful to look at, Karen. I really need to get back to photographing my dolls again! They have been very neglected lately, lol!

Thanks Val. I bet you'd have some fun with your dolls now with all the new techniques you've learned too. I go back and forth with my photo subjects depending on my mood.
