Crystal Uses the Same Sculpt and Cammie


This 1990s 11-1/2-inch doll was purchased from K-Mart for $1.99.  Not a fashion doll collector at the time, specifically not a Barbie collector, I was, however, drawn to Crystal, because of her facial features.  I appreciate her fuller nose and lips, which set her apart from other generic Barbie wannabees.

Dressed in a simple off-white floral-print dress, Crystal has brown rooted hair, beautiful brown eyes, and darkly painted lips.  Her only accessory is a pair of white high-heel pumps that remain enclosed in the plastic pouch which is attached to the box liner.  



Crystal has the same head sculpt as Cammie Goes to College.  Made in China, this doll was also distributed by a Detroit, Michigan-based company, Starlite, Inc.

Several versions of Crystal were manufactured, dressed in different fashions with possibly different hairstyles.  I owned more than one, but eventually gave the others to nieces as I downsized and eliminated multiples.  Although Crystal is not articulated, I am so glad I kept one for myself!

  1. Both Crystal and Cammie are beautiful. I wish I had one so I could put natural hairstyles on her.

  2. I did not know that both Cammie and Crystal shared the same face and I have both of them. Thanks for the information.

  3. Crystal would look lovely in one of your wigs, Paulette!

    MDW - Put them together and see if you agree they are the same doll.

  4. These dolls have quite the ingenue faces. The pattern on her dress makes her even more appealing.

  6. Hi Muff and Vanessa,

    You two fashionistas have caused me to take notice of Crystal's simple yet stylish dress. I never paid attention to it until now. Her dress now reminds me of the much better made dress worn by Mixis Emerald as seen here: http://s50514.gridserver.com/store/images/SS_EMERALD_lrg02.jpg
