So I'm sure some of you know about the doll from the 70s called Growing up Skipper. She was a highly controversial doll for her time. The concept of her was you'd turn her arm and she would grow breasts, ergo, she'd grow up. Now I personally don't see anything wrong with this doll and would have given her to any daughters I would have had. But I understand for the time that she was a bit shocking. It brought sexuality into your little girl's life when you just wanted her to stay an innocent little girl. Below is a video that talks more about this interesting doll.
So while you would think that this doll didn't do to well, far be it from Mattel to stray from their regular pattern of repeating their dolls from the past to try to get a hopeful successful repeat run with it. Enter Growing Up My Scene Glam dolls.
I honestly have never heard of these dolls and am bummed I missed out on the chance to own one. LOL!
I think the concept of this doll is way better than Growing Up Skipper. She grows several inches and grows breasts. You can change her make-up for a more mature look and change her shoes from flats to heels.
I'm guessing this doll didn't do to well either seeing it that you didn't really hear about it, but maybe I was just out of the loop around this time.
This time around Mattel changed the way their doll grew up. Instead of turning her arm you turn a crank in her back which makes her grow up and out. I like this concept and I think in the world we live in now young girls could have "gotten" it. Below is a video that tells more about the doll.
So tell me, did you know about this doll? Was I just out of the loop? And if you knew about it, what did you think about it? What did other people you knew think about them? Did you or do you own one? How did you or do you like it? The curious mind is...well...curious. :-D Ok kids, I'm off. I've had a kind of hard day and think I want to head back to bed. Just wanted to post about this real quick. Talk to you all later. Bye for now.
