Sears Exclusive - Posin’ Cricket
Available in Brown-eyed and Blue-eyed verisons.

Hi I am 16" Posin' Cricket!  I am so happy to meet all of you. Well, I just have to talk
about my friend Velvet.  Isn’t she pretty?  She needed a new friend as I guess Mia
moved away or something so they designed me.  I adore Velvet and we love to play
games and fix each other’s hair in lots of pretty styles.  I first came out in 1971.  See
my long copper penny colored hair. I was released with short foundation hair, but
sometimes I can be found sporting longer foundation hair - see the picture below for
comparison. I wore the sweetest orange and white dress (styled like Velvet’s purple
one) and had on shiny dark orange T-strap shoes to coordinate. I had a cute little
hair pick too – sometimes though it gets lost along the many travels I make.

I am a Sears Store exclusive too. Tressy and I had our pictures in the Sears catalog
and lots of children asked for us as their Christmas presents in the early 1970’s.  I
came in one body style only and they called it Movin’ Groovin’ but my box said
Posin’ Cricket.  I didn’t mind as  long as I could arrive into children’s homes before
Christmas or that special birthday party and see their face’s when they opened up
my box.  I fell in love with all my small owners.  Those are such sweet memories.  
Now I usually only get played with when no one else is around – occasionally my new
adult owners brush my hair, change my clothes or talk to me when no one else is
looking.  It brings back many so happy memories for me.  

In 1972 there were some versions released of me with blue eyes and had a darker
red shade of hair.  Please tell me how did they do that?  I only know that a few of me
are like that though.  No one really knows how many of me they released with blue
eyes.  Do you have me with blue eyes? I wore the same cute orange and white
dress but could be purchased with pretty blue bridesmaid dress - see me below
modeling it. That dress is so pretty – I feel like an angel when I am dressed in it.

Well I guess that’s it about me – check out my pictures below. I hope to see you
soon! Bye for now!

Sears Exclusive - Gorgeous Tressy & Posin' Tressy

Hi I am 18" Gorgeous Tressy and I am just a little bit different from Crissy, Kerry and
Brandi – after all I am an EXCLUSIVE!  Tee Hee  I was available through Sears stores
only!  I came in two different body styles (the first version of me was available in a black
version also) and my face varied a little too.  Do you have ME?  I have lovely long jet
black hair and turquoise eyes – I think my eyes are the prettiest shade of turquoise blue
ever!  haha I kinda like the way I turned out myself <wink>.  My lil sis is Cricket and if you
think I am a prima donna just wait until you hear her talk about herself! I would like to pull
her hair a bit and give her the ole raspberry but the staff at Crissytown told me I had to
behave or they would not give me mine own webpage! Imagine that and I am the older
one too! Pout!

In 1970 I was released in a white or a black version doll wearing a white and buttercup
mini dress that has a Hawaiian print on it.  It’s not very glamorous but everyone clambers
to buy it though so that’s okay. Sometimes that year I come adorned in a variation orange
diamond dress shown below.  I have been told its hard to find. I had on black bow tie
shoes that everyone wants to have to match with my dresses too!  I also wore a
headband that everyone also desires to have - but I don’t care for it much as it messes
up my pretty hairdo!  In 1971 I wore a beautiful light turquoise satin mini dress with white
lace sleeves and bowtie shoes to match.  I LOVE this dress as it brings out the color of
my eyes. I had a Posin’ body this time so I could move around more – they called me
Movin’ Groovin’ but my box said Posin’ Tressy. Did you see my pretty box?  I love the
picture of me on the front.  Some of my owners think I should have been a model – what
do you think? After all I am gorgeous! Tee Hee

No more black Tressy dolls were ever released of me again and I missed my pretty
counterpart. Pout!  In 1972 you could purchase me with a beautiful bride’s dress that I
simply love, but that brat Cricket was my bridesmaid! Oops oh well hopefully the staff at
Crissytown will understand my comment about HER this one time.

I like to wear all sorts of fancy clothes – from the mod outfits to OOAK and quite honestly
if you ever do a reroot on me I look great with blonde hair.  I have always dreamed of
having my hair go all the way down to my toes too.  hint hint!

See a few pics of me below.  Bye for now! Kisses to ya!
