|Cammie Goes to College|
I first wrote about what was my then lone Cammie Goes to College doll back in March of 2013 here. The post shares detailed information about this 11-1/2-inch 1990s doll that represents an African American college-bound student destined to attend a historically black college or university (HBCU). In the prior post I indicated I regrettably sold the other three differently dressed versions of Cammie Goes to College that I previously owned. Thanks to a special doll friend, I now own two of this line of vinyl dolls that were United Negro College Fund endorsed.
Cammie is dressed in a red two-piece fashion, the top of which has a Kente cloth-print sash. Red high heels complement the fashion. Her extra outfit is a white jogging suit that has College Bound CB (within a circle) on the shirt in blue lettering. A pink plastic comb and brush are included to comb her mounds of black rooted hair. Like the other versions, a parental guide (which is fully described in my previous post) is also included.
I love Cammie's full facial features (take another look at the first photo) and the fact that the doll was manufactured by a company that was located in Detroit, Michigan: College Bound Concepts. Note that the graphics on this doll's box differ from my other doll's box. The manufacturer's name is also slightly different from the name shown on the other doll's box, which is College Bound Dolls, Inc. The cover of the parental guide for this doll is also different from the other doll's guide. These variations lead me to believe the two were manufactured in different years. I am not sure which doll was released first.
The smile this Cammie placed on my face when I opened the shipping box in the post office lobby returns each time I think about her and the person who so kindly replaced the one I sold.
A huge thanks is again extended to the thoughtful gift giver.
