This is a vintage Midge doll, Barbie’s Best Friend by Mattel, Inc…..and how fun, Midge & Barbie are the exact same size and can share clothes! This is the straight leg version sometimes just known as SL Midge. She has painted blue eyes and tiny freckles and her long, curled hair is the red/titan variation. On her bottom it appears to be marked; Midge 1962 - Barbie 1958 by Mattel, Inc. Patented. I believe that dates her to the mid 1960’s.
She measures about 11 3/8” tall and is in good condition with slightly mussed hair, minimal scratch and soiling to the body. Her painted fingers are in tact. She also has painted toenails but there is some discoloration on her feet.
She is wearing a three piece outfit from the Barbie #981 Busy Gal set. There is the fitted, striped blouse which is nearly backless and that has an attached bow at the neckline. The fitted skirt has a slit up the back and it comes with a sweet matching jacket that is lined with the same material as the blouse. The jacket has the original Barbie by Mattel label. This does not come with any shoes or other accessories from the set. The clothes are in very nice condition with minimal play wear. All of the snaps are in tact and the button and loop on the blouse is original too.
Priced and sold as doll and 3 piece set.
