Side Part American Girl (1966)
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.
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..
