1986 Playskool Grandma's Marshmallow Babies plush

Grandma’s Marshmallow Babies were made by Playskool in 1986.  They are about 17″ long. These dolls have a soft cotton body with arms, legs, and head made of a tight sweater-like knit. They eyes and facial features are embroidered and the hair is yarn.

 
Playskool wanted to emulate the days when Grandma  hand-made individual dolls for their granddaughters; thus these dolls featured many small variations in so that they would be as different and as special as each of the little girls that would own them. Color variations include the color of the knit skin, embroidered eyes, and yarn hair. 
 
These dolls also smelled of marshmallow when their tummy’s were squeezed. Adding scent to a doll was a popular marketing gimick of many 1980′s dolls.
 
 

 

This is the cloth body. Note "marshmallow babies" written on the white cloth.

    I remember my sister had one of these dolls. Do they really go for $100 now days? Seems like an awful lot for a doll. What makes them so special?
