It's the Mod Squad! Here's a trio of a vintage Blonde TNT Francie, Brunette TNT Francie, and Growin' Hair Francie from the late'60s. These three cuties each have their. Original swimsuits and/or their original dress (for Growin' Hair Francie). The Growin' Hair Francie doll is in Near Mint condition, and shows little sign of being played with.
The 2 TNT dolls have both been played with, so they do have some minor wear issues; they have had a little freshening of their make-up with water-based acrylics, so they do look quite pretty. If you don't like the retouching, it is removable with soap and water. This lot is not for "Mint" collectors, but the dolls display nicely and don't have any unsightly issues like haircuts, green ears, neck splits, or nose nips.
The doll stands are not included in this sale. If you have a question that I haven't answered in the description, please ask me. Blonde TNT Francie: Looks very cute with shiny blonde hair that has some flip at the ends still. Her face has a nice skin tone, but she does have a slightly pale nose tip, and her ears are light.Each ear has an earring poke inside the ear lobe, but no green staining there. Her lips were touched up, as they had some rubbing, and her brows were touched up, as they were faded. She was given a little acrylic color wash for blush. She has all of her lashes on her left eye (left in the pic), and the right eye has an innermost plug that is thin.
She has a small scratch 1/8 long between her brows, near the left brow. You can see this in the enlarged close-up pics, but at a normal viewing distance the scratch doesn't show. She has a tap mark on her left cheek (left in the pic), and another tap to the left of her chin.
Again, you have to be looking very closely to see these tap marks (6 or closer); when she's on display on your doll shelf, they don't show. No nose nips or neck tears. Her TNT body is marked 1966 Japan, and is in Excellent+ shape. Her body is evenly pink with no stains or poke marks. Her arms and legs are nice and tight.
Her swivel waist seems just a little loose, but not floppy. Her knees each make 3 loud clicks. Her original swimsuit is in Excellent shape; no runs or holes, but it is missing the buckle on the belt, and the vinyl belt has torn in front.The pink bottoms seem a little faded and lightly soiled. The swimsuit's back seam needs an 1/2 repair.
Brunette TNT Francie: Is an innocent looking beauty with lots of thick brunette hair! The hair has shine to it and a little flip at the ends.
She has a nice even skin tone that hasn't faded, except for a slightly light nose tip. She has retouched lips and brows, as they had rubbing. She has gotten color wash blush, which gives her a healthy look: She has most of her lashes on her left eye (left in the pic), but the outer 2 plugs are thin and some of her lashes are bent. On her right eye in the pic, her innermost plug of lashes looks shoved in, and the outer lash plug is thin.
She has a faint tap mark on her left cheek (left in the pic) toward her temple, and a stray tap just in front of her left ear, and a very faint tap inside her ear. The other ear doesn't have any taps. She has a faint tap at the outer end of her right brow (right in the pic). You can't see these taps unless you get very up 6 from her face; when looking at a normal viewing distance they don't show up. No green ears, nose nips, or neck tears.
Francie's TNT body is in Excellent shape and is marked 1966 Japan on the right side of her butt. Her body is evenly pink with no fading or stains. All of her limbs are tight.
She has a repaired 1/4 tear toward the inside of her right knee. It was repaired with super glue and isn't real obvious, but it is visible at close range. I ran out of pics to show the repair. On this right leg's ankle, she also has a 1/8 cut. Her left ankle has 7 light tap marks.
But overall her body displays quite nicely. Her TNT swimsuit has some stitching coming undone at the front neckline, and 1/2 of the belt buckle is gone.The back seam needs an 1 seam repair. The seat of the suit has some light wear spots and 1 small spot of soil. Growin' Hair Francie: Looks so dreamy with her 60's style up-do! She is in Near Mint condition and doesn't look to have been played with much at all.
Her hair looks to be in the original up-do style with the grow hair strand. The curl at the end of the grow strand is a bit messy, but you could recurl it if you like.I added a pink bow to the end of the grow strand. Her grow strand is fully extended, and I couldn't get it to retract in by pulling on it. I didn't want to mess her hair up or cause damage, so I left the grow strand extended, and I don't know if it will retract properly.
Her make-up is all original with nice blush, and her eyelashes are super long, straight, and thick. Her face's skin tone is a little translucent, which is typical for these dolls as they age. She has some fading in the middle of her forehead and on the tip of her nose, close-up pic #5 shows this most accurately. The other close-up of her pic #10, makes her look paler than she actually is. No earring holes, nose nips, or neck splits.Her body is marked 1966 Canada & Japan on her butt. Her arms and legs are tight at the joints. She doesn't have any stains or poke marks. Her original pink dress has some silvering/wear on the bodice, but the net overlay on the skirt is mostly intact. There is a small 1/4 hole in the netting on the left back of the skirt.
These groovy girls will be cute models for your hip'60s fashions!
