Looks more like Alice was trying out to be one The Supremes!!


These were the hottest (literally), sweatiest, smelliest things to wear, and BOY, did I think I looked great in them. Several of my colleagues had these too. Talk to any 50 year old woman, and likely she got these for Christmas when she was 4 - 6 years old.


I received these as a gift from my grandmother and loved them! They did chafe your skin around the edges, and they smelled awful, but it was worth it to look like a Hollywood star! My sister and I used them when playing dress-ups.

Oh Boy did I love these!! Yes, I am 49 and I did get them for Christmas when I was about 6-8 years old. My sister and I thought we looked so good wearing them! I would love to buy them again but don't know where to look.

Cindy, I bet if you checked eBay once in a while you'd come across some.

I have a vague recollection of these from my childhood. I know I didn't own them, but someone I knew did and I can't remember who it was. Bugs the hell out of me that I can't remember!


I would love to purchase these wigs

I have an un-opened Vintage plastic play wig for girls from the 60's. Interested?

Paula Zargaj-Reynolds

Sorry, no, Dee Zee. I only hoard digital images of the old stuff. ; )
