Little Miss No Name Doll
By: Tonya from When It Was Cool (@wiwcool)
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!
