Maskerade Magic doll by Eegee, 1976

Eegee’s Maskerade Magic is a fun set that includes a 14″ boy or girl doll with five different masks for the doll to wear. Four different sets were pictured in the catalog, but the sets with the boy dolls seem to be rare or nonexistent. It is possible they were not produced beyond the prototype stage.

Body Construction
The doll has a vinyl head and heads with a soft stuffed cloth body. He or she has painted eyes and rooted hair. The clothing is part of the body.

Markings
The doll is marked “EEGEE Co. // 12D // Made in Hong Kong” on the back of her head.

Clothing
The girl doll wears a blue skirt over her purple, blue and green cloth body. The boy doll’s body is made to look like a striped shirt and rust colored pants. His feet are black.

Masks
The girl doll is most often found with the set that includes a nurse, red haired and black haired princesses, majorette and blonde bride masks. She was also packaged in an alternate set that included the majorette and one of the princesses, plus clown, bear and bunny masks. The boy may be packaged with firefighter, doctor, pirate, football player and cowboy masks; or with the clown, bear, pirate, a Frankenstein and a character with blue skin and a gold (?) helmet. I don’t recognize that last one but he may be a comic character.

Packaging
Although the catalog illustrations shown picture the doll packaged on the left side of the box, with the masks on the right, all the actual sets I have seen have the doll in the middle with the masks on either side.
