Dolly Pops :: Large Playsets

Dolly Pops

"The doll you dress in a snap!"

Dolly Pops was produced by Knickerbocker from 1979 to 1982. They were a series of flat-backed, hard plastic doll with pop-on/pop-off plastic outfits. The 2-inch dolls were sold on their own, with carry-case playsets, and also larger playsets. In France they were produced alongside Clodrey, and in Canada with Ganz Bros.
