Remco Pocketbook Dolls "Hi!" By Euphrates
Heidi was probably one of Remco's most popular dolls. She enjoyed a good spot on the
toy shelves from the mid '60s into the early '70s. She was blonde, 5 1/2-inches tall and came in a plastic
case, similar to Remco's TV Jones line. Heidi and her
Japanese friend Jan featured a "magic button" on their stomachs that made them wave. There
was also a version that caused the doll to blink. Of course the waving and blinking functions
rarely work today.
Later, Remco gave Heidi a sister, Hildy. They also gave her the rest of her playmates, Pip (her little friend), Spunky (her tomboy friend) and Herby. These dolls are a little harder to find than Heidi and Jan.
Through the years there were many carded and boxed outfits and playsets made for Heidi and her playmates. Most of the outfits were packaged 2-3 to a card. Most of the outfits and playsets are quite easy to come by still carded or boxed and in nice condition. This may be because of the long run of the line.
