Ideal's Little Miss Revlon was the company's smaller version of their popular Revlon doll. She had a vast wardrobe and was widely imitated. Many dolls have been found that are identical to her in every way but the markings, leading many collectors to believe that Ideal may have sold an unmarked version of Little Miss Revlon to stores or other companies.

Body Construction
She is an all-vinyl, strung doll, jointed at neck, waist, shoulders and hips. She has sleep eyes with 5 painted lashes at the outer corner of each eye. Rosy cheeks, red lips, finger- and toenails made Little Miss Revlon a very glamorous girl. Her high quality, rooted hair came in platinum blonde, medium blonde, red or dark brunette, and was styled in a ponytail or curly bob with bangs.

She is marked "IDEAL DOLL / VT-10½" on the back of her neck and "10½R" on the inside top of her left arm.

Little Miss Revlon's original outfit consisted of a bra and elastic girdle, nylon stockings and plastic high heeled shoes. She wore drop pearl earrings and a hairnet covered her hair. She was also sold wearing various outfits, which could also be purchased separately. Much more information about Little Miss Revlon's outfits can be found in the books by Judith Izen and Kathy Barna.

Little Miss Revlon was originally issued sold in a plain box. Later her packaging changed to a more colorful box with her photo on the cover. She was also available in a gift set with four extra outfits.
