Meet Miss Logan

Meet Logan.  Years ago, just before Pleasant Company was sold to Mattel, they had a line of 4 dolls called Hopscotch Hill School.  They were to fill the gap between Bitty Baby and the regular 18" dolls.  When Mattel bought the company they did away with them, but I have fallen in love with these whimsical girls.  They remind me of my Granddaughters....all legs and arms and wonkie!!!!  Here is Logan, and I was able to find her complete meet outfit, minus her notebook.(still searching but I made her one.)  These girls are just so cute.  I will have a few up for sale on my Ebay shop shortly.....I went a little crazy when I started looking for them!!!  Can't wait to start sewing for them!!!!
