Korean Skipper

Around 1981 a very unusual Skipper was available in Korea.

 

Her face resembled the Funtime Skipper dolls sold in Europe a few years prior, but she had brown hair with a flip – very much like Funtime Skooter (not identical).

 

She was dressed in a colorful traditional Korean fashion and came in a white box.

 

There’s only one known example of that doll.

 

The stock number is not known. The markings of the Korean Skipper are the same as the ones of the Funtime Skippers:
