|Cool Cuts Kara by Kenner, 1990|
I recently had to move Kara's box to access other dolls. After the reconnection, I decided to photograph Kara and include the photos and brief description here as one of my Throwback Thursday doll installments.
As indicated in Perkins' Black Dolls An Identification and Value Guide 1820 - 1991, page 185, Cool Cuts Kara by Kenner, ©1990, is a 13-1/2 inch-tall, all-vinyl doll. Her brown eyes are painted. She wears a purple dress with fuchsia print overskirt, molded-on pink panties, and purples shoes. Kara's own dark rooted hair is very long and very full. The main attraction is the extra hair included that can be attached to her head, cut, and replaced by purchasing separately sold hair attachments.
|The back of the box illustrates the many ways Kara's hair can be cut and styled.|
In addition to the extra hair pieces, Kara's accessories include a pair of functional scissors, comb, pouch (for hair attachments I suppose), and purple doll stand base that has slots to hold her feet.

I wonder how many little girls not only cut the hair attachments but also cut Kara's own mounds of hair.
