DO NOT REGRET GROWING OLDER.
IT'S A PRIVILEGE DENIED TO MANY.

I had an aunt who had one of these dolls. As far as I know this was the only doll she ever had. If I'm not mistaken she was on up in age when she got it. I think she died just before I was born in 1964. The doll was put in my Granny's trunk. I asked my daddy if I could one day have it. I've only saw it once and that was after he died 5 years ago. It is still in that old trunk and one of my brothers has it. I'll probably never get it, since daddy never told anyone that I wanted it. I'm saddened that you never got yours. I know it brought alot of happiness to my aunt, since she had a hard life. She was slow minded and there fore Granny wasn't that good to her. I hope you can find one.
I can't eat cereal anymore because of this. I'm 56yrs and they had little Miss Sugar Pops doll, I wanted that doll so much and Mom said well, save the box tops and you can get it. I ate Sugar Pops so much but you could do the fast way, a few box tops & pay money to get the doll, Oh No she said just collect all the box tops. It too months of eatting the cereal I did get the doll but after all that cereal I never ate cereal again. Strange how things happen.
I not only remember it, I have one, still in the plastic with an extra dress...
Here's an old one for $1.00---Is this the one? This is the back of the cereal box. Someone had this for sale.
This one is from Hong Kong, and I don't think it's the original doll, is it?
This is a rubber doll from the 50s for sale on ebay for $9.99. I can just imagine what condition the rubber is in!
libbicus I am n ow 54 years old
I'm curious. Now that you're 62 has the doll arrived yet? lol.
I do know how you feel though. :(
I was about the same age you were when you sent for that doll. My older cousin was sending for tickets to the Howdy Doody Show so I could be in the Peanut Gallery! I'm a little older than you now and I'm still waiting to go.

Boy, this is an old thread, and sort of a strange one to have gotten resurrected several times. LOL I'm glad I finally got to see it, though.
I had a doll that was very similar to this, but she came from Rice Krispies. She was about the same size as a Betsy McCall doll and she had platinum blonde hair but I don't remember what she wore. I've looked and looked for another like her, too, to no avail. Haven't even been able to find mention of her on Google -- everything is Snap, Crackle, and Pop, but I KNOW I have the cereal right because I actually named her Rice Krispie, and, other than Frosted Flakes, that was about the only cereal we ever had in the house.
Something else that caught my eye about this thread is the OP's name. The name I've always been known by is Libby. LOL
