Miss Twist is a variation of Uneeda’s Dollikin doll, marketed to capitalize on the “Twist” dance craze of the early 1960s.
Body Construction & Markings
For general information on body construction and markings, see the Dollikin page. Miss Twist was sold with a black curly bob hairdo and heavy black eye paint.
She wears an ivory satin dress with layers of fringe on the skirt and around the neckline–sort of a flapper effect, with a matching headband and drop pearl earrings. She is pictured above with one of the regular line Dollikins.
There is a photo of Miss Twist in her box on Valerie Myers’ website
