Miss Kitty

Miss Kitty was sold by Cragstan. She had her own box. The doll had long hair with bangs, eyes that glanced to the right and she had freckles. Her head was made of a very squishy material.


There probably were some Miss Kitty versions, since these dolls were found with rounded toes and with square toes. All other features were exactly the same. This doll was marked HONG KONG on the lower part of her back and on the back side of her head.


Many fashions made for Miss Kitty were very close copies of some vintage Skipper fashions.


Cragstan was an importer of Japanese toys in the U.S.A. It is unknown if the company was based in the U.S.A. or in Japan, some information says it was based in New York. It is believed that Toy industry veterans had founded this company. The name “Cragstan” was probably derived from a combination of the two owners' names. Cragstan operated from the late 1950's until the late 1960's.

It's a "Miss Kitty" by Cragstan set that originally came with white gloves, socks, shoes and a flower bouquet (just like the original Mattel set does).

Below please find photographs of some "never removed from card" Miss Kitty fashions, as you can see, most of them look like perfect copies of Skipper fashions:
