These dolls are 15″ tall and have joints at the hips, shoulders and necks. They have  hard plastic heads which are covered with a fuzzy coating called flocking. The bodies are filled with soft stuffing and covered with a soft flesh colored flannel fabric. The hair is rooted. The eyes are plastic and embedded into the head. Each doll has a heart shaped sticker/emblem on their tush that says “my child”.
 
These dolls were made by Mattel in 1985. Mattel continued to make versions of this doll in boy and girl with different skin, hair and eye colors until 1988. These dolls were marketed to look like the little girls who would be their “mommies” – thus the wide array of  skin, hair, eye color and even hair styles available.
 
In 1987 Mattel discontinued the “my child” heart marking on the tush of the dolls and in 1988 discontinued the red haired doll.
 
Starting in 1987 the dolls were available in many different countries around the world: Italy where they were marketed under the product name of “My Love”, France they were known as “Mon Enfant”, Germany they were called “Mein Kind”,  and in Holland they were known as “Mijn Kleintje”.
 
These dolls are wildly popular even today, 26 years later, with doll collectors around the world!!
