SDP: Faceless Dolls
Want to see something creepy?
Pedro found these in her room the last time we were home and I (still) think they’re awesome. Let me introduce you to the What’s Her Face dolls made by Mattel in the early 2000s, which are basically faceless blank canvas dolls. They come with lots of rubber stamps and a mask that the stamps fit into so you can draw your own faces on the dolls with washable marker, then just rinse them off and do it again! They also came with unnaturally bright wigs that velcro onto the back of their heads and reversible clothing. Many an hour was spent transforming these dolls from pop star to zombie girl with Pedro. The great thing is after all these years, we still have all the stamps and accessories (except one shoe is missing). Must be because of the organizational skills our Da taught us when putting legos and star wars action figures away (separate plastic baggies for weapons, body parts, etc.) so we didn’t lose any.
The dolls are 9.5 inches tall and as you can see only bend at the shoulders and hips, their heads have great range of motion though. The wig quality is pretty good for what I assume were pretty cheap dolls (why else would we have three?), but the hair gets caught really easily in the velcro on their heads and on the inside of the wigs. I think this is a really fun doll (that I will be hoarding until I have my own children), and a great solution to customizable dolls.
