QUICK CURL SKIPPER #4223 1973 - 1977

#4223 "Quick Curl Skipper" was sold from 1973 - 1975. She had pale-ash-blonde hair streaked with metal fibers which made it possible to style the hair in curls. However, curling and styling the hair over and over again ruined the metal fibres and nowadays it's hard to find Quick Curl Skipper dolls with nice hair.  

 

She was sold in two different box styles and came with a white plastic X- stand, a fashion booklet. a pink comb, brush and hair curling wand, blue and yellow hair ribbons, two white barrettes and white Taiwan flats.

 

There were two variations of her original dress, one with a black ribbon (more common) and one with a white ribbon (maybe only sold in Europe).

 

You usually find these dolls with faded lips.
