THANK YOU. I have had so much trouble convincing people that there really was such an entity as Growing Up Skipper!

I came across your blog while I was researching an Vintage Doll by Sears. I was wondering if your Sears catalogs had a “Ken” type doll named Craig? I have an old ACTIVE CRAIG SET that doesn’t have a year. It is still on it’s cardboard and looks like it is from the 70s or 80s. It doesn’t say Mattel only Sears on the back.

If there is any info you have that would be great. Please email me at:


Thank you for your time,


It's amazing how Barbie has achieved to keep her fame over the years and also continue being one of the first options in kids's christmas wish list.

The Barbie fashion review was so interesting. Like a snap shot of the expectations of a woman's life. I love seeing all these vintage ads. It reminder me how much progress we have made. Thank you for sharing.
