I love the readers of this blog. Really, I do. I had to take this time to thank all of you for following, reading, and commenting on my posts.
I am also extending a heartfelt thanks to LéonorEtLorelei, who so kindly helped me identify my second doll purchase of 2017, the cutie patootie from Holland.
In a comment to that post, she wrote:
This doll is a GoGo Brigitte. As a black Beauty, she was [often] dressed like a hula dancer. Never seen any with red eyebrows.She did also exist in a smaller size, named "Happy Haley" .Hope you'll have a great day !In a second comment, the following links to photos of Go-Go Brigitte dolls, including a black version dressed in straw skirt, were shared:

LéonorEtLorelei, I really appreciate your help! Thank you also for sharing a link to one of your blog posts. I love your creativity as well as the message your little doll protesters are conveying. The Herman Pecker and the Cheers premium doll are both adorable.
During the 1960s, toys and other items were included as premiums with products sold here in the US, like Cheers laundry detergent, but I never saw dolls of any color in any of the products my mother purchased.
