Little Miss No Name will either steal your heart... or your soul.  The jury is still out.

Little Miss No Name will either steal your heart... or your soul.  The jury is still out.

Little Miss No Name was created in 1965 by Hasbro. A different approach to the glammed up Barbie doll who had everything from mansions to Porchses this doll had nothing including no shoes & only a burlap sack for dress.

Unfortunately, Little Miss No Name wasn't a huge seller and it was said that it may have taken a special kind of little girl, one with real love in her heart to want to purchase and take home a Little Miss No Name doll.

Barbie never needed a hug.  Little Miss No Name, on the other hand, looked like she needed real love. I didn't have this doll as a child, of course, it was way before my time. I don't even have a very long history with mine as I purchased her off eBay a little over a year ago but had I known about this doll when I was a little girl I'm certain I would have loved to have loved her. 

I understand there are seven different ones but am not 100% certain about that. I read an article stating that the commercial for this doll was of her standing in a dark alley with snow falling down. She was barefoot, not wearing a coat, just a burlap dress with patches (mine is not in original dress). She had shaggy, dirty, blonde hair and large, sad, brown eyes.

"I need someone to love me. I am so tired and cold. Please take me home with you and I will be yours to hold." The original box reads " I need someone to love me, I want to learn to play, please take me home with you and brush my tear away.  This doll will either pull at your heart strings or possible freak you out. I love mine and would never part with her. A wonderful find for me!
