Little Sophisticates
By Euphrates
Little Sophisticates Meet the Little Sophisticates. These 8-inch whimsical socialites were made by Uneeda in 1967. The dolls were sturdily constructed of vinyl with rooted-hair and blue eye-shadow. They were gawky and pigeon-toed but featured full neck/head articulation. Each haughty doll in the 6-doll series (with names like Penelope, Marika and Suzana) appears to be saying "Hmph, I shan't be opening any more presents today!"

Uneeda reissued the series, as they were frequently prone to do, in the '70s with 6.5-inch dolls called Tiny Sophisticates.
