Playskool ad 1970, originally uploaded by obsequies

i adore the 1970 dressy bessy! i bought mod*tot a newer version + it's basically the same doll, but with different materials + colors that aren't nearly as mod. we'll use it as a pattern to make one like the original.

Love Dressy Bessy

So sweet!

I loved my Dressy Bessy! Thanks for a great walk down memory lane.

Those are the cutest dolls I've ever seen.

My mom saved my Dressy Bessy. She was my pal -along with Holly Hobby. Her vinyl shoes are chewed up (alas, I had a bad habit of doing that when I was a wee girl!)

By Blogger Melanie Martinez, at 7/13/2008 9:25 AM  

you pals are so lucky that had a dressy bessy!

hi melanie! omg, you're so famous!
you had your own pbs show!
love your blog :) the dog work out video is hilarious :)

By Blogger modmom, at 7/15/2008 10:25 PM  

I really enjoy your blog. The dressy bessy was my favorite toy - I haven't thought about that in years. The 70s was such a good time to be a kid.

I just bit into a madeleine, not only did I have a Dressy Bessy, my brother had Dapper Dan. I wish my mom was alive so I could show her this.

i'd love to get my sons a dapper dan. i wondered if these were still available...but like you, i'd need it in the old clothes. :)

By Blogger Laura $, at 7/27/2008 7:19 AM  

You can get the old ones on ebay.

By Blogger VictoriaL, at 11/07/2008 6:46 AM  

I have the original 'Dapper Dan', teaching doll by Playskool. I bought it for one of my sons in 1975. It is in great condition except the back of the head has some woren areas. If interested email me at cclakeside@aol.com and I can email a picture.
