Linh Found - Surprise Visit to the 1970s

I almost suspect that my dolls and action figures come alive when I leave them. How else can I explain finding missing Dragon Linh in a bag with Ideal Tuesday Taylor and her half-sister Taylor Jones (their relationship as I recall it from my childhood years)? While my action figures and dolls interact - I put them in scenes together - I don't recall placing these figures together.

Here they go, Ideal Corporation's Tuesday Taylor and Taylor Jones flanking Dragon Linh. Tuesday and Taylor both wear Ideal Tuesday Taylor fashions that are NOT their original bodysuits with miniskirts. Linh wears her original pants, top, hat, and sandals. No original scarf for Linh: I bought her and the clothes she has separate.

Talk about dolls that make you go "hmmm ..."

Ideal - Tuesday Taylor doll manufacturer did NOT mean for the dolls to be sisters. I placed that relationship on these dolls because they looked so much alike, barring the plastic color.

I never thought of this before, but back in the 1970s, neither Asian nor Hispanic alternate dolls existed. Hmmm ...

how come in some photos of tuesday, the arms are bended but according to doll reference, her arms are not bendable?

Some Tuesday Taylor dolls - the Basic and the Suntan ones - have soft plastic arms that have a wire inside that bends a little. These arms are like the arms on the Living Barbie and the Busy Barbie and female friends from 1970.

Other Tuesday Taylor dolls like, the Beauty Queen doll, have straight, hard plastic arms.
