They were Mattel’s attempt to bring girls around to playing with toy cars wasn’t just for boys. It mixed playing with dolls and cars where the roller skates or other items could be removed from the feet (wagon, crate scooter, and soapbox car) or used with them on special track sets just for them or the ramps included on the packages.

Today these dolls are getting a bit tougher to find complete with all the clothes still on them. From play ware and material being almost 50 years old they have just fallen apart. Some can be found fairly cheap and others and complete action play sets can be very expensive if and when they show up.

I don’t mind the condition they are in it shows they were enjoyed with many many years ago. Trying to restore the 2 girls is almost impossible since I’m not sure if any one sells reproduction clothes or original that aren’t all destroyed or heavily damaged.

So I’ll leave you with this how an edit from a suggested on the drivetribe LALD post I did of them
