100 Pink Plastic Dolls Mail-away 1960s








These are exquisitely detailed, front and back...Wonderful Little Pink People...Very Hard to Find...These were produced during the 1960s thru 1970s...They were advertised in Comics etc...100 Dolls for $1.00....then as 50 Dolls for $1.00...Made of hard plastic...These are about 1 1/2 inches tall...
a Copy of an add from a comic book
Some came with these little red vinyl cut-outs of clothing...which were more of a pain than anything...they looked better without them
Some of the boxes they were shipped in 1960s-1970s



I would love to hear from anyone with more info on these dolls..

So thrilled to find this post!!
The pink dolls are very precious to me. I wrote a blog post about them some time ago. My grandfather sent away for them when I was a child. I still have the original box and all the dolls intact.

Read here for more information. I am bookmarking this post. I love this!!

I had these as a child. my mother saw the ad in the back of an Archie comic and sent away for the in the late 70's she thought that they wouldn't come but for a $1 why not and to our surprise they came. I loved them.

We ordered a set of these around 1976. They weren't quite what we expected, but boy did we have fun with them! I think we had 130 when we counted, and we used them for everything from cake decorations to craft projects - a few were even blown up with firecrackers! Every now and then, we still find one or two in a drawer at my Mom's house!
