Side Part American Girl (1966)

An exquisite, all original, pale blonde Side Part American Girl

This beautiful pale blonde above is a perfect example of the highly prized (U.S. version) Side Part American Girl. This doll has the usual tan skin (bendable leg) American Girl body.

It is said that Mattel did not produce many of these since their hair style was difficult to achieve.

The lovely Side Part American Girl that was sold in the USA was made in Japan, but has the soft and subtle 'low color' face paint, hair which is parted on the left side of her head.  She wears a turquoise ribbon headband.
She was originally sold wearing the classic American Girl turquoise and multi-stripe swimsuit, turquoise open toe shoes, the turquoise ribbon head band, a string holding her hair style in place, wrist tag and a gold metal stand.

Like the other American Girls, this doll did NOT come with earrings or earring holes.

The Side Part American Girl can be found with blonde (above), ash blond, titan (often known as cinnamon to collectors) and brunette hair colors..

A mint, all original Side Part American Girl wearing a mint 'Rosarie' (also known as 'Atelierfest') outfit. This is a European exclusive outfit, and the high color (tan skin) side part that resembles the Japanese Side Part is very unusual and hard to find

This doll is in mint condition. She wears her original turquoise ribbon head band and she still has the original string in her silvery ash blonde hair.  She has no earrings or earring holes.

She was originally sold wearing the classic turquoise and multi-stripe American Girl swimsuit (seen on the doll at the top of the page), turquoise open toe shoes, a turquoise ribbon head band, a string holding her hair style in place, wrist tag and a gold metal stand. She has the tan skin American Girl bendable leg body, however she has the high color face paint and look of the pink skin Japanese Side Part American Girls
