In addition to the three regular lines of Ideal’s Revlon DollsKissing Pink, Cherries a la Mode, and Queen of Diamonds – there were also outfits that were only available on special dolls.

Snow Peach Bride is a long sleeved lace bridal gown; tulle veil with lace trim and crown of orange blossoms; bouquet with trailing white streamers; drop pearl earrings and necklace; solitaire ring; white shoes.

Bendable leg dolls wear an outfit known as Fifth Avenue, consisting of print pants, sleeveless knit bodyblouse and cotton fleece coat. It was made in several color combinations. A few rare dolls have been found in a pink or blue paisley print cotton dress. Scan from the 1958 Sears Christmas Book, courtesy of Wishbook Web.

Happi-Time Revlon dolls have a small Ideal tag sewn inside the dress rather than the banner tag on the outside. These were sold in the Sears catalog under their Happi-Time label. Learn more on the Happi-Time Revlon Dolls page.
