Midge; titian, blond, brunette dolls 1963

Identifying Vintage Midge Dolls 1963-1967


The Midge Hadley doll is Barbie dolls best friend, is 11 1/2" tall and was introduced in 1963, Midge is the same size and shape as Barbie so she can share her extensive wardrobe but . . . not her man, as the Allan doll is her boyfriend.


The titian Midge originally wore a chartreuse and orange two piece knit swimsuit, blonde Midge's swimsuit is in two shades of blue and the brunette Midge wore a pink and red swimsuit.
