|Tracy is 11.5″ tall, all vinyl, dressed in a floral print dress with attached, lace-trimmed apron, and matching bonnet. Her rooted hair is styled with a sausage curl on either side of her face. She has blue sleep eyes with long lashes. She is marked “Hong Kong” on the back of her head, and “Made in Hong Kong” on her back. The illustrations on her box are obviously meant to invoke Holly Hobbie.|
