Black Barbie Clone/Bild Lilli Owner Seeks Additional Information



Unknown 16-inch Black Barbie/Bild Lilli clone with molded hair, including plastic ponytail, marked Hong Kong.
Please view the above and additional photographs below which were shared by a Facebook user seeking additional information about this 16-inch doll sold as a black Bild Lilli.  The information provided about the doll from the owner is as follows:

She was listed as a dark skinned Hong Kong lili clone doll with plastic pony tail... I have purchased other clothes to preserve her bikini such as this slip and scarf. She has no marks and slight wear to her makeup... Her bathing suit was breaking so I put a small faster to minimize wear when taking it off and putting on. Other than that I have not retouched her. The shoes I purchased and modified to fit her feet.


As indicated by the owner, the scarf, slip and shoes were added.
Any additional knowledge about this doll such as manufacturer and/or name may be added as a comment and will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance!

    1. Thank you for sharing the Etsy link, Night Owl. I neglected to include that the owner of the doll in this post shared the Etsy link with me. The Etsy description doesn't offer the manufacturer's name or other details that the collector is seeking. I appreciate the time you took to search for a similar doll and to share what you found.

    1. Thank you for the Bild Lilli link, Nicholas and the commercials that include other black dolls.

      I am sure there are others who own more black dolls who might be interested in being included in the Guinness Book of Records for the amount they own. Personally, I am not interested in that.

  3. This doll is blow molded. It is evidenced by the seams you can see in the arms, legs, etc. Sadly, in my 38 years of being a doll designer/toy inventor, there is no glue that works on blow molded PE Plastic. It is the same plastic a milk container is made from. Hot melt glue will also change the shape of the doll's body from the heat. Contact cement does not work and will degenerate the plastic. I have tried to solve this problem for YEARS and never found a solution. Even plumber's glue will not hold. Any glue with an acetone base will melt this plastic. Sorry to bring this news. If you find something that does work, let me know please! I have even asked the top model makers in the toy industry and there is no solution. I will check again with my factory and see if they ever found something that can work! Good Luck! Hope she can be fixed! Ruth
