Collection Close Up: Skipper/Skooter Beach Case (1965)

Recently, I acquired one of my favorite Skipper doll cases. Made in 1965 by Standard Plastic Products, this case features Skipper and her friend Skooter running on the beach. This case was released in blue and yellow vinyl. (A single doll case was also created, it seems, using this graphic. After doing some googling, I found an image of that one, too!)

Since it’s a double case, there’s lots of room to store your dolls and clothing inside! The graphics are fantastic, as is expected with these vintage cases. The way the artist captured Skipper and Skooter is right on and very artfully done. Some cases feature Skipper in a more passive pose, but this particular case has a far more interesting graphic. I love cases that have ‘action packed’ poses, like this one!

    I have a case with the same image but it’s considerably smaller – it stops around the ‘r’ of ‘Skooter’. I agree that the art is nicely done! It’s very playful and sweet 🙂

      Interesting. I’ve only seen it as a double case. Yours sounds more like the size of a single doll case. It only holds one doll, right?

      Oh, I found yours on Etsy. Never seen this one before! Added it to the post, in case people are interested in seeing that one. Hopefully the image stays live for a while!

        Sorry, I should have linked to a pic! But, yes, just one doll. 🙂 I hadn’t realised it came in the double size before your post, so that was cool to learn. I had wondered if it was only released in single size in Australia but I guess, considering that etsy link, that’s not the case (pardon the pun).

    […] Running on the Beach double case is one of my favorites. It has such an action packed graphic on the front, which features Skipper […]
