Vintage Swingy doll from 1969

Because girls would love a friend to dance with, Mattel makes SWINGY.

She swings! She swings her arms… she swings her feet with the “Swingy Step.” She tosses her shining hair from side to side, and dances like no other doll in the world Swingy comes with her very own pop record, with music and lyrics to match her mood. And when Swingy finishes dancing, she’ll walk, too.

Dancerina doll (1969)

Because girls dream about being a ballerina, Mattel makes DANCERINA.

Touch her crown — Dancerina pirouettes! Round and round in rhythm to her own recording of the Nutcracker Suite. Touch her crown again—she changes direction! Watch her whirl — Touch again and see her toe dance with delicate steps forward — and then backward — Was there ever a doll like Dancerina?

She’s a pink confection in silken blouse and ruffled tutu. Dancerina — Bravo!

Glamorous Sally is a doll with great appeal to girls, because she can be changed from a teen-age to adult doll with a wardrobe change and the push of a button. The button regulates her growth from 6″ to 7-1/4″.
