Around 1981, a very unusual Skipper is available in Korea.


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


She is dressed in a colorful traditional Korean fashion and comes 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:

Another one of these dolls were found in 2020 (loose, no box).
