This is the My Friend Jenny doll, put out by Fisher-Price in 1979. This doll belonged to my mother, who passed away in 1983 at age 73. She told me once that she had never had a brand new doll of her own, so I gave her this doll for Christmas. I remember that the doll came with two left shoes instead of a right and a left. It wasn’t too big a deal looking back on it, but my Mom’s first real doll had to be perfect, so I wrote to Fisher-Price and they sent me the correct shoe. Funny the things we remember. The doll is now mine, and she is still in her original clothes, although the elastic in her sleeves and waist is long gone. I think she looks cute with a bit of a “cinemascope” treatment.
