Our first ever collector's guidebook to the British 1970s Palitoy Pippa doll, similar to the US Dawn doll, is available. For more information and shipping details plus information how to order this book from Amazon Books visit http://www.dawndollsplus.com/pippa.html
A comprehensive reference to the 1970s Topper Toys' 6 1/2" fashion doll superstar, plus many of her friends, companions and rivals.
We wrote the now out of print first ever Dawn doll identification and price guide in 1995. This new book includes all of the Dawn information in the first edition including all of the great discoveries we have made over the last 6 years and more clone items. 108 pages (28 more than the first edition) printed on archival paper. There are more and larger full color photos of Dawn and her world than the first edition. Includes a fold out collector checklist with stock numbers, page reference and pricing for easy use at shows. The new edition is not signed and numbered like the first so please note with your payment if you would like the book signed.
Chapter one introduces the members of Dawn's family, chapter two details Dawn's extensive wardrobe, chapter three shows the many accessories and play sets that make up Dawn's world including items from Europe, Canada and Japan, chapter four outlines some of the many similar dolls that were produced in response to Dawn’s success: Little Miss Dollikin/Triki Miki (7 different boxed dolls shown and 16 outfits plus reissue dolls), Dizzy Girl, Cindy Joy, Premiere, Petite, Remco Jeannie, Diana, Tiny Teen, Rock Flowers, Swingin' Scene, Fashion World, and more (276 different packaged items are shown) and chapter five celebrates Dawn's European relative Pippa. Appendixes show the unnamed stock outfits variations (115 different variations shown), head and body mold variations (compares Dawn to Pippa, Remco Jeannie, Pico, Little Miss Dollikin and others), Penny Brite, Go-Go's, Topper store displays and the 1990's JPI Dawn size doll Starr (104 Starr items are pictured). Love, Leggy and the Fashion Flatsys were covered in the first book but they are not part of this edition.
