Daisy by Mary Quant dolls

Daisy is one of my favourite dolls from my child hood. She had a lots of clothes, accessories, furniture and other bits. I used to love playing with her for hours. She was distributed in the early 1970's to 1980's. She has changed her looks during the years and here are some of the dolls from that era. I am not an expert of Daisy dolls, just a doll collector which still finds them lovely and intresting. Hope you'll enjoy!

 
   
This body is the most common body. I call it basic body. This is how Daisy looked like in 1972-73. She is could bend her legs and turn her waist. She has a quite soft head.
Following pictures shows how she changed over the years and in which different variations she was distributed in.

This doll has a different look. She looks a little like one of Daisy's 'friends' The Havoc doll ( see below ) I think these dolls only were distibuted in Usa, Canada and other counties across the Atlantic. Marked: c Model Toys Ldt Hong Kong
