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!
Do you own this case? Have you recently picked up a cool vintage case? Share your thoughts in the comment area.
