My Doll Collection Complete

 A pair of Knickerbocker hard plastic dolls ready to sell. I have a box full of these to paint. :)

The final doll in my personal odd doll collection arrived in the mail today. (the boy in the striped shirt) A brother for my beloved Jolly orange haired girl. :)  I don't think the seller knew how rare he is. I'm just glad I didn't have to pay a small fortune for him. He looks very clean and his color is better than his sister.

I read somewhere that someone thought these dolls were called "Hilly and Billy", so the names stuck in my head.  I'm assuming they're clones of the Laflex dolls and not the other way around. (I might be wrong.) 

The Jolly dolls have bodies almost identical to a Migliorati Birichina doll, but they have the Laflex-like heads. I guess that makes them double clones. :D

My Remco Tiny Doll Collection (So Far)

A few have wigs, which I'm not sure I like, two have yarn reroots, which I love, and the rest have all or most of their original hair. (I had to trim the frizzy ends off the pink haired Finger Ding girl.)

All three Finger Ding doll heads are on Hildy bodies.
Hildy and Spunky yarn reroots. 

I still have a small pile of extra bodies and heads to work on. I'll be selling some of them with new outfits. :)
