Mattel's
"My Child"

[Dividing Line Image]

   

Mattel introduced these popular little dolls in the mid-80s.  With the exception of the one wearing the pink "leotard" each of these dolls' faces is covered with a soft felt "skin".  There were actually several hair/eye combination variations to choose from, including little boys.  The one in the front, right is made just like the others, but she has a vinyl face (no felt covering).  These dolls are starting to get a following on the secondary market.
