|Aline, a Barbie clone by Nancy Ann Storybook, 1970s|
The mystery doll in my blog post from yesterday is, in fact, Aline by Nancy Ann Storybook from the 1970s.
I surfed the Internet last night in an attempt to find an image of a black Barbie clone like this one and found three, links to which were shared as comments to yesterday's post. Here is one of the three links I shared.
I received the following email this morning from the doll's owner:
Thanks everyone for your input... your comments prompted last night's investigative Internet surfing.Thank you so much! I got a message from a collector on Flickr which led me to check out NASB's Aline doll. I think we have solved the mystery - she is an African American version of Aline. Thanks SO much for your help and support.Best wishes,Tonya
