Sasson Ginny Doll from Lesney Products (1981)


The Ginny Doll first hit the scene in the late 1940s, a creation of Massachusetts-based Vogue Doll Company. The doll became immensely popular due to the availability of a variety of high-quality and detailed outfits available for purchase.

In the early 1980s, Ginny went “Sasson.” The Vogue Doll company, now a subsidiary of Lesney Products, released a version of Ginny that paid homage to the “designer jeans” generation. The 8-inch doll was decked out with a contemporary braid, Sasson jeans, and matching T-shirt belt, and shoes.
